Description

LEGO building bricks meet the highest industry standards, plus the LEGO Group’s own quality criteria.

Kevin is the tall guy of the gang and also the smartest, which is sort of visible by his less crazy behavior and somewhat nerdy overall look. Keep in mind that anyone can view public collections - they may also appear in recommendations and other places. This LEGO Brick-built Minions and their Lair 75551 creation comes with 876 pieces and is detailed with amazing features to make you get immersed. The build process feels rather convoluted and involved for something that looks so simple and the much-touted conversion from one character to another leaves a lot to be desired in terms of user friendliness not to speak of the fact that in doing so LEGO missed the opportunity to create a “Build any Minion you want” kit. LEGO has been starting to put the manuals/stickers into shrink-wrapped bags in other sets; I hope we see that happen more often in the future.

The box art is pretty straightforward, leaning heavily into the blue and yellow Minions color scheme. This set only contains characters based on the 2 x 2 round elements with them being Stuart, Kevin and Bob, but there is a 3 x 3 version representing Otto in two of the other sets. The three Minions are built mostly the same, but they have enough differences to make it interesting. Speaking of Minion facial parts, this set also includes three printed panels, each with a different expression.

Brickset, the Brickset logo and all content not covered by The LEGO Group's copyright is, unless otherwise stated, ©1997-2024 Brickset ltd. But if for whichever reason they decided not to, they should at least include an idea of building something from the extra bricks.The back shows the internals of all three, it shows you how the eyes spin, and then shows that you can switch Kevin to be Bob.

Objectively the Mega versions do have more sculpted details and overall look more “realistic” with LEGO taking a more simplified approach more in line with regular minifigures or for that matter for instance the buildable Super Mario characters that also make use of the pin-based arms. Which is the basis of the set, a pair of brick-built Minions characters, which also double up as playset-style lair. The downside to that naturally is that there was no recognizable marketing for the movie to bolster sales and to people not following the latest movie news it may even have appeared like those sets appearing out of the blue with no rhyme or reason behind it. So I photographed him here without it, as I was feeling generous, and as it looks pretty stupid with it. Now the thing is that the set discussed here is actually a tie-in for the latest movie that was supposed to have come out early last year but due to the pandemic has ultimately been postponed to July 2022 (assuming they don’t change it again), which is an eternity.We take intellectual property concerns very seriously, but many of these problems can be resolved directly by the parties involved. Each LEGO Minions set encourages creative fun as children role-play scenes from the Minions: The Rise of Gru movie. Some of the technologies we use are necessary for critical functions like security and site integrity, account authentication, security and privacy preferences, internal site usage and maintenance data, and to make the site work correctly for browsing and transactions. The basics are al lthere, though, and aside from the opacity of some prints leaving a bit to be desired they are executed well enough.
