LEGO Minions: The Rise of Gru sets revealed

The LEGO Group has unveiled the five new sets that will be released based on Minions: The Rise of Gru.

Minions: The Rise of Gru will be released on July 3, with a range of LEGO sets on the way ahead of the film. Today, the LEGO Group is revealing the five LEGO sets that fans of the yellow characters will be tracking down. They are all just as strange and off-the-wall as the Minions’ antics.

Specially moulded pieces have been developed for the Minions’ bodies and heads to give them each individual character. The sets range from 4+ models with plenty of large pieces to large versions of the Minions – 75551 Brick-Built Minions and Their Lair can build three different Minions, but only two at once.
