Last summer’s planned release of Minions: The Rise of Gru didn’t happen thanks to the pandemic, but if you’ve ever dreamed of constructing your own Minions with LEGO bricks, you don’t have to wait.
The officially-licensed Minions sets slipped out even amidst the film’s delay, and this set gives you a surprisingly generous 876 bricks for the price… probably because it’s a lot of plain yellow and blue ones in the mix. Still, the end result is a pair of large Minions and a trio of smaller ones at a price that’s currently 20% off list at Amazon.
