The Minions are set to return to the big screen on July 1st in their highly anticipated self-titled Despicable Me spin-off that traces their history back thousands of years.
There’s probably no better way to see how much fun the diverse personalities that the Minions take on than though the Mega Bloks line of mini-figures. Whether the lovable little fella is a vampire, Worker Minion, Fire Minion, Cave Minion or any number of fun variants. This toy line shows off why children and adults of all ages love them!
After stopping by the Universal Showroom at the Toy Fair last month to get a preview of all the Minions tie-ins set for shelves on May 1st, I had the opportunity to check out the Mega Bloks Minions display in the Mattel Collector’s Showroom as well. Check it out.
Here is the official synopsis for Minions:
The story of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters. Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters-from T. rex to Napoleon-the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression. But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he-alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob-ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow. The trio embarks upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award® winner Sandra Bullock), the world’s first-ever female super-villain. They travel from frigid Antarctica to 1960s New York City, ending in mod London, where they must face their biggest challenge to date: saving all of Minionkind…from annihilation.
