This summer, the much-loved Minions are returning to the big screen with the highly anticipated release of Minions: The Rise of Gru. Out on the 10th of July, the film tells the untold story of Gru, a twelve-year-old with a dream to become the world’s greatest supervillain who gets a helping hand from his loyal yellow followers, the Minions.
The LEGO Group has announced at New York Toy Fair that this year, fans will soon be able to bring the mischievous world of the Minions home with a new LEGO Minions range.
The five new products, available from April 27th, include scenes from the movie, meaning builders of all ages will be able to get inventive in Gru’s Lab as they help construct the underground lair or create their own minion mishaps with the Minion Pilot in Training, a buildable plane loaded with accessories.
However, the real fun begins with the Brick-Built Minions and Their Lair, an 876 piece set that truly lets builders into the unpredictable world of Minions. This creative model lets Minions fans build Stuart and Kevin – but the fun goes on, Kevin can then be rebuilt into Bob! Kids will go wild for this unique 3 in 1 build which can then be turned around to reveal a room playset inside, complete with accessories, such as tools, hats and weapons.
See the #Minions: The Rise of Gru in theaters this summer.
