Minions. Who doesn’t love the adorable, banana-loving characters? Every does! If you do too, you will want to check out the LEGO Minions: The Rise of Gru building toy sets. Meanwhile, I am here wondering how well the new Minions movie will do at the box office when it hits the theaters on July 3, 2020.

Anywho, there are two things that got our attention with the LEGO Minions: The Rise of Gru sets. First, it has buildable Minions that opens up with playable interior. Sweet! And then there are the special Minion minifigures.

Not very often LEGO is willing to retool to make special shapes minifigures, but they did for this collection and that alone is enough to convince me to part with my hard earned money. Altogether there are five sets:
