The subject of this article won the award(s) of Best Tribe of Series 5 at the Mixels Wiki Fans' Choice Awards 2015!
As of late, the company has died due to lack of interest. However, the Klinkers still live in their town to this day, determined to get back on top. Their symbol is a large golden wheel.
The Klinkers are like Mixels from another age — the Steam Age. They are all about power, mechanics, and taking action.
|Gox||A royal-treated leader of the Klinkers that has a rotating eye and a golden mustache.|
|Jinky||An aging heavy metal star with long arms and walks like a living boiling room.|
|Kamzo||A worked up member with his rotating wrenched left hand.|
|Tyecoon||A background Klinker.|
|Principal||Knave, the principal of Mixopolis Middle School.|
|Koggpact||A background Klinker who shares a model with Banjoe.|
|Gajet||A background Klinker who shares a model with Muffy.|
|Steelven||A background Klinker who shares a model with Crunchee.|
|Steemur||A student attending Mixopolis Middle School.|
|Gurdurr||A background Klinker who shares a model with Thornee.|
|Zinck||A background Klinker who shares a model with Lixeon.|
The following list contains the episode in which all three members in a group of this tribe are seen, excluding Background Mixels.
- Their leader, or boss, is Gox.
- Their name comes from "clink", the sound that metal makes when hit and "tinker", one who travels and invents. It may also come from "clinker", a term for a coating formed over metal during extreme temperatures.
- The original three make metal creaking and hydraulic hissing noises when they move.
- They appear to be elder Mixels, as Gox mentions that they were better and sleeker in their heydays of the past.
- They have their own instrumental theme.
- In A Quest for the Lost Mixamajig, they were at first portrayed as antagonists when they stole the Mixamajig Key and ran away with it, until they reformed when the Krog & Slusho Mix saved them from the Lixers.
- They have a district in Mixopolis themed around clocks.
- Their tribe was originally spelled as "Clinkers".
- They are the only tribe of Series 5 to have a leader in the main three members, for the Lixers don't have a leader and the Frosticon cousins have Flurr from 2014 as their leader.
- This is the only tribe where neither the original 3 members, or the Max can move their mouths on their LEGO models.
