The Minions Lego Set You Didn’t Know You Needed

Since June 2019, when LEGO announced the release of the Minions lego sets, all of us have been waiting for the occurrence of this event. Finally, we can take a peek into the 5 sets of Gru’s yellow workers that have been released.

Anyhow, they will be available on April 27th, before the premiere of the film “Minions: Rise of Gru” in July.

Specifications for the Sets

All five sets are based on the upcoming movie, yet each of them greatly varies in the details. The piece count for the sets ranges from 87 to 876 pieces.

One of the sets is a larger scale, whereas the other four are minified ones. In addition, you can find the details for each set. Spoiler alert: They are extremely adorable!

Unlike the standard tiny Minion models, this Lego set consists of two gigantic figures. It is quite flexible and appropriate for creative Minion fans. It allows each individual to build their favorite character: Kevin, Stuart or Bob.

Once the minions’ lego set is assembled, you can feature the playsets build in the backsides of the characters – build inventions with Kevin, let Stuart take a well deserved rest or explore kung fu with Bob.

All in all, each of the sets recreates a different scene for the Minion fans. Reviewing the characteristics of the yellow fellows’ sets may even initiate a desire for something you didn’t know you needed.
