Has anyone else found any of the new Mixels? I recently bought the Orbitons tribe and, upon building them, was a bit disappointed that the parts used are not as they appear in the set images and on the packaging.
Based on the images
, I thought the gold parts were matte metallic (official name Gold Ink) and the transparent parts were fully transparent. However, the gold parts are the more common Warm Gold, which is not metallic, and the transparent parts are Transparent Brown (i.e. BrickLink's Trans-Black). While the models would look better with matte metallic gold parts, the difference here doesn't bother me too much. The darkness of the clear parts, though, seriously changes the look of the models relative to the images. In #41527
, the bits in the "brain" are difficult to see, and in #41529
, the eyes are obscured by the darker domes.
The models are still fun to build and look pretty good. And on the plus side, the Nixel included is a clever design and definite improvement over the previous incarnations. It just bothers me that I didn't get what was shown on the packaging.
