Easter Minion Mega Blok Blind Bag minifigs


Easter Minions are out. I found these at Kroger. They are part of the Despicable Me Mega Construx series.  There are only three mini figs in this series,Kevin, Bob, and an evil minion.

easter_minions

Really the only thing new on these are the accessories. Kevin has an Easter Egg bowl, which doubles as a hat. he also has a spring of hair. Bob has basket and an egg or maybe a cupcake. The purple minion has a mini purple bunny. The limited parts make it easy to feel the bag and get all three figures without getting duplicates. They have a thin light blue 2×4 base.

“What’s in the Bag Tip?”:

Kevin and the evil minion both have long torsos. Bob is not that much shorter than them so feel for the accessories. The bowl is fairly distinctive. It’s round and hollow. The purple minion can be found by its hair. You can feel something soft and not flat like the checklist. For Bob feel for the basket. It is narrow unlike the bowl.

Minion Fan?

So will you add these to your collection?

Lowe’s Black Widow Build and Grow


Black Widow Build and Grow!

August 13 was Black Widow day at Lowe’s. I unfortunately had to work so my wife and son picked up the set and brought it home. We built it Tuesday night.

Black widow build and grow

This was the easiest build so far, just four steps including the wedge base. And only one size of nails so you have to sort them. There’s a couple places where you add stickers before you can hammer nails. But nothing too tricky.

The Black Widow moves at the waist. She spins so it looks likes she attacking with her baton.

They also sell some Build and Grow kits. They had a couple of wood car sets and child sized hammers. The kits are not in the area where the event occurred. At our location they were near the Key cutting section. You can see some of the sets on the Build and Grow site.

Valentines Minion Mega Blok minifigs


Hey I found some thing cool at Target valentines Minions. These are part of the Despicable Me Mega Blok  series.

minion mega bloks valentines sets i'm with cupid

There are only two in this series Kevin and Bob. Really the only thing on these are the accessories. Kevin has an “I’m with Cupid” sign and Bob has wings, bow and arrow. The limited parts make it easy to feel the bag and get both figures with getting duplicates. Both come with a red 2×4 brick.

“What’s in the Bag Tip?”:

Feel for the accessories. The sign is a square all sides the same length, and it is thin. If you find a square it’s Kevin no square it’s Bob. The wings are squishy in the bag and the arrow is just a stick. You might try feeling for the body size of the minions but may confuse the brick for Kevin long torso.

Minion Fan?

So will you add these to your collection? Give as a gift tomorrow? Yep last-minute cause I found them at the last-minute.
