Mixel Series 1: Infernites Review for MF0

So, this is sort of a late review as everyone knows Mixels are awesome for MF0 but I have a thing about reviewing all that I buy so maybe this can be a start of me catching up? Also going to do some things different with the Mixels so let's get started with the Infernites!

Flain
The Bag
Can you build some sort of creation right away? 

I got both a spaceship and a frame but the ship is a modification of this guys head build honestly. +5 points The frame is sort of a hover legs idea.




Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio? The Golden Ratio is $0.10 per part.

$4.99/58 = $0.09 making this set under! +5



Parts 1
If you can't build a frame right away, or choose not to, does it have parts you should be able to put into use right away? 

Absolutely, a lot of good stuff here I think. +5 points.



The Set w/ Friends
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts?

One way or another I think the entire back is just about useful one way or another...except maybe the eyes. +5 points!

Spaceship!
Total: So we have an A+ Set but this is no surprise! Of course instead of building a frame, one could just field Flain as is, maybe given a 'Fiery Aura' for defense and put something in their hands for a weapon?

Vulk

The Bag
Can you build some sort of creation right away? 

Again I got a frame and a ship out of this set (not at the same time). The ship is sort of small but I still like it while the frame is just a modification of the Mixel set it self but still counts! +5 points



You want some of THIS?!
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio?  The Golden Ratio is $0.10 per part.

$4.99/69 = $0.07 is under the ratio and even better deal!! +5 points



Parts 1
If you can't build a frame right away, or choose not to, does it have parts you should be able to put into use right away?

Of course it does. +5 points.

Parts 2
 Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts?

Absolutely, even a few harder to find ones. +5 points.



The Set and Comparison


Total: As most of us already no, the Mixels are gold so no surprise I am handing out another A+. Of course again one could try fielding this guy instead of a building a frame.

Zorch


Can you build some sort of creation right away?

Again, another spaceship and a frame modded from the original Mixel set design. +5 points. Of course you could just use it as is but I would remove the flames, there a bit much in taking up space.



Frame and Friends
Is it below, at, or above the golden ratio? The Golden Ratio is $0.10 per part

$4.99/46 = $0.11 per part. Wow, this makes this set the black sheep of the Infernites giving us a -10 for going over ratio but only by a penny!



The Ship
If you can't build a frame right away, or choose not to, does it have parts you should be able to put into use right away?

A lot of pieces and rather standard now can be found in this set. +5



Parts 1
Does it have more than a handful of immediately useful parts?

But of Course it does! +5 points!



Set and Friends!
Total: B+ set, going over the ratio is harsh business but still a + set!

MAX!!!!!


Web Instructions to Combine all 3 Sets. Too big for 7p...


Final Thoughts: Series 1 Mixels of the Infernites clan are a great buy for getting started in building frames or needing to expand your collection of red parts for adding color to frames but avoid Zorch unless he has something in their pack that you already don't have.
