All The Mixels. All of Them! (Approximately)
The system, shown here kinda working.
Then I made a mistake. That mistake's name is Tentro.
Oh, he may seem like a swell fellow up there, and his parts might be pretty ok, but make no mistake, that mixel is nothing but an impostor, a poseur of the highest order, and a scoundrel maybe (i'm just reaching here to be honest)
What I'm saying here is Tentro sorta looks a lot like Zaptor in the head area and I think that's just incredibly boring. And not only because Zaptor pulls off that build far better, but because in a line with so many sorta varied and out-there designs, I think they could have gotten by without reusing a previous design almost exactly.
So I wasn't satisfied with Tentro at all. If I was really only going to get one of each tribe, I really didn't want two of them to look the same. So I decided to get Kraw. In fact, Kraw had been my first choice for the Flexers. The one and only reason I didn't get Kraw instead of Tentro was the fact that he had none of the new joint pieces, whereas Tentro had like, 8. In retrospect (and now that i do have him. spoiler alert?) it's obvious that I really shouldn't have cared, but I did, so Tentro happened.
Getting Kraw really complicated things for me though, because I can get really hung up about the rules I make for myself. And if I was going to get Kraw, I was going to have to get a second of every tribe, too. And from there, especially since I have a bit more disposable income, it was a bit of a slippery slope.....
What I'm getting to is this is what happened.
Balk's head is pretty long, so he only gets to sorta happen.
SO YEAH. I got all of series 2. Some of them really surprised me (Gobba and Jawg were much better than I expected) and some were kinda disappointing (Lunk and Flurr are both about as unexciting as I expected) and the other ones are Balk. Kraw, of course, was perfect. He's such a drama queen, and I love him.
So I guess from now on I'm getting all the Mixels. I guess I'm ok with that.
And, of course, getting all the Mixels meant I had to go back and buy all the other series 1 guys I didn't already have, which was....a bit expensive. I was fortunately able to find 5 of them in a bricklink store for the it-could-be-worse price of around 7 each. The last one (which of course just happened to be my least favorite, volectro) had to be bought on ebay for a price I'd rather not think about. So yeah! I have no idea where I'm going to be putting all these Mixels, but actually being able to fool around and make a ton of mixes sounds like it should be a lot of fun.
And at least Volectro got here quickly.
Let there be no doubt as to my amazing image-editing ability.
