Is this even for real? Are we actually getting Minions Lego?

Yes it's real, and will have 5-6 sets maybe more.

https://brickset.com/sets/theme-Minions-The-Rise-of-Gru

Some info I found here : https://www.stonewars.de/lego-2020/#lego-minions-2020 

It also says May 2020 release date, while movie launches in July.

Brickset also lists a 75548

 

75546 4+ 19,99€  87 pieces

75547 4+ 29,99€ 199 pieces

75549  19,99€ 136 pieces

75550  39,99€ 310 pieces

75551 Buildable Figures of Kevin, Bob and Stuart (3-in-1) 49,99€  876 pieces

 

I assume the 75551 is brick-built big fig like they did with the Star Wars Porg in 2018 and 3-in-1 meaning build 1 at a time, but parts to change between those 3 characters.

I’d consider getting a Minion if he were Porg size, sounds pretty cool. Artoo & Wall-E, along with the Porg, could use another buddy.

So anyone following the Harry Potter knows about the video of a German YouTuber who went to the toy fair. My German is terrible, but I could kinda make out his description of the minions. The head is (similar as) the R2 head piece and the arms are like those of the Angry Birds pigs. It's not a lot to go on, but it's something.

Hmmm, anyone here think the '70s setting and vibe this sequel's going with could bring us something useful to the table? :def_shrug:

I hope so, it could be quite unique. But it's not going to happen looking at the list.

Will we see pics released after NYC toy fair next week?

I read somewhere else on here that the sets shown at NYC will only be 1HY, from the first half of the year, but I don't know if that goes up to April or May. I doubt the sets will be very spoilery so they might be shown earlier

I‘m under the impression that 1HY includes May, so the sets could indeed be on display :thumbup:

Grew's lair and the motorcycle are gonna be the 2 I'll pick up. I'll have every character with the two sets. It surprises me how the dental braces minion doesn't even have them. Grew looks rather dump without his nose but I didn't expect anything different. I wished Lego would make specialised head pieces again. Oh well. At least young Grew wears the same outfit as adult Grew so I can just remove the hair to make him accurate to the original movies.

Still I think the Chinese temple and the robots are the best looking sets, but if I wanted a Chinese temple I'll just buy the normal one and I'm not that into minions to buy a 50 Euro(?) set.

I do like how they designed the mini figs though, the printed tiles for eyes are a clever use of normal LEGO parts and allows for more expression.

Couldn‘t agree more, they did a splendid job with the minifigs :thumbup: I don‘t really care about the franchise, but these are definitely worth picking up!

Just saw an image of The inside of the buildable minions, it’s ten times cooler now! I mean, still absolutely hate the yellow things, but I can admire the builds here, that set is Definitely the best of the bunch.

Kung Fu Battle structure sure looks nice.

Also looks like a new mould for those arms, with actual rotating hands.

Similar arms were first introduced with Nexo Knights in 2017 (and maybe more known via TLM2 Ice Cream Cone) but had no rotating hands.

Otherwise, personally not very interested in the actual Minions side of things.

Love the minifigs, they did a splendid job, and the buildable Minions are impressive. Will be hard to resist these... have to watch a few reviews to see if the sets are also as good in the flesh [prints as opposed to stickers, etc] or just grab the minis like Huigbert's said.
