Hey I found some thing cool at Target valentines Minions. These are part of the Despicable Me Mega Blok series.
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.
So will you add these to your collection? Give as a gift tomorrow? Yep last-minute cause I found them at the last-minute.
Another Minions Surprise Minion minifig.

There are more minion surprise figures! I found blind bags at Target. They scanned for $2.39. I don’t know if that’s normal retail or not. I guess they will be $2.99 since $2.39 is an odd place.
They are Minion Movie figures. They are packed like previous Minions surprise packs with and card that covers the figures so you can’t determine which figure is inside. Some of the figures have odd shape costume so that may help find a few of them but overall it looks like random luck.
The Minions come with a white base. Since the movie is their search for a leader, they didn’t include the blue base with Gru’s logo.
There are some in a Toys R Us boxed set but this is just a few from the collection.
There will be three packs sets. With movie backgrounds some of these are in the blinds bags but not all. It looks like the sets have at least one of the blind figs.

I have built my first Minion constructible toy set. The Jelly Lab set has 86 pieces and retails for $9.99. It includes one mini minion. The set is colorful with several semi-transparent pieces. The theme is a minion jelly factory, there tubes and hoses and a conveyor belt. Some of the parts do not snap into place and grip
The figures look great. They are molded in color with just a little bit of paint for the hair. The goggles, overalls and banana are soft plastic. The goggles really give it personality when they are snapped on to the figure. The legs are hard to snap into place. The arms are a little easier but you have to force them into place. Mega Bloks says you can mix and match arms and feet but I don’t see that happening much if it’s this hard to snap them into place.
Sometimes when running a blog you learn about stuff via your readers. That what has happened in this case. Last month “Mega block minions blind bags” appeared as a search term in my stats. That’s pretty specific and different from the Thinkway toys blind bags. I ran a search and found out that Mega bloks does have megabloks minion minifigures. I saw one big set a few days later, but no more till this week. I have found the playsets at Target and Toys R Us. Today I finally found the minifigs.
They are called buildable Minion blind packs.They are in blind boxes not bags. There are six figures in series one. The instruction sheet says there are common, rare and ultra rare figures. It’s doesn’t give you odds on find any figure. But there is a number stamped into the bottom of the box. Mine had A22094ES on the box and the figures was a Minion with a banana. That checks out with a list of code posted at Dollastic . The figures have a suggested retail of $2.99 but are $3.99 at Toy R Us. The MSRP on the sets range from $5.99 -$19.99. There are seven sets to collect. You can see them all here,
I got a figure and a set. I’ll do a full review in a few days. Short review for now The figure I got looks great. It’s molded in color with just a little bit of paint for the hair. The goggles, overalls and banana are soft plastic. The goggles really give it personality when they are snapped on to the figure. The legs and arms are hard to snap into place. You have to have them lined up just right. The say you can mix and match arms and feet but I don’t see that happening much if it’s this hard to snap them into place.
