This is the first time since Ninjago's launch that I've been genuinely excited for the release of a new theme.

It looks kinda cool, although the sets are a bit small. I'm not really interested in them overall. I do find it interesting that they are going to have a Cartoon Network series for it, though.

The joints look like they'll be good for small mecha and for control surfaces on larger models. I can see many, many uses for them.

After looking a bit closer, I've gleaned this from the promo picture:3 possible elements, Fire, Electricity, and Earth (?), as well as an interesting mix of constraction and regular LEGO construction.

I'm loving the tiny ball joints. Judging from 'mix' in the name, and the way that all of their arms and legs connected the same way (respectively), maybe it's designed for Galidor-style limb-swapping?- :t: :n:

Corrected teaser site URL: http://www.lego.com/en-us/mixels

 

I've been working on and will continue to work on the Brickipedia article for the theme. I can't wait for further information from both TLG and Cartoon Network. I do have high hopes for the theme and the show. I'm hoping it may be something similar to Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends, although it likely won't. Still, I'm excited. The sets look incredible, fun and playful, which is something I like in LEGO sets. The new pieces too.  :inlove:

Seems interesting, I'm loving the new parts. The tiny ball sockets will be great (I wonder if they're comparable with the existing rubber band mount pieces. That would help so much in MOCing), and I see new claw pieces on the red one. The red guy's eyeball ball joints might be fun for some MOCs as well. Can't wait to see further information, and I reall hope it's more than just some figures.EDIT: On further inspection, I also notice the yellow guy's fingers are new as well. Those look like some great pieces. I also see the elemental alignment kopekemaster mentioned, although I'm thinking the tall guy may be metal or something similar.

This is...  So weird.  But those new joints look very useful, depending on how strong they are.  Judging from the red guy's legs I'm betting the bulbs are just the existent Technic bulbs from this type of part.  But, of course, with new pieces and sockets!

The ball joints look good, but I don't know. Yours truly is not a fan of plate builds.

I'm excited for this, even though the Cartoon Network part of it (the show) might end up sucking.Lego! You have a deal with Cartoon Network, so why no Adventure Time Lego??!!

I've got more Mixels information! http://lego.wikia.com/wiki/Mixels

 

There's confirmation of a mobile game, and the Cartoon Network tie-in is a series of shorts that will air on TV and on CartoonNetwork.com. Further information is on the Brickipedia article linked above. There are also going to be three waves of sets! :D

Series of shorts? Called it.

 

Although the mobile game has me more intrigued. Especially if they can manage some Skylanders-like integration of the physical sets.

As others have said, those joints are fantastic. Other than that, I'd probably pass. Maybe that will change when we see more sets, though.
