Minions Movie Surprise Figures!


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.

Minion Surprise Figures Update


I previously posted about new Minion Surprise blind foil bags. At that point I had not found the new bags in store. Well I finally found them at Toys R Us. from the  image on thinkway’s site, I was worried the new and old figures might be mixed in the bags. They are not. The new ones are labeled as Despicable Me Minion Made, Minion Surprise.

20133
There are eleven figures pictured on the bag and checklist card. See the Minion Made list below. All these but the kicking minion are in the Toys R us Boxed set. The box set is $19.99 and the bags are $2.99 at Toys R Us. I do not see any cheat code for these.  The bags have the same  code, D62504 stamped on the bottom of each bag. The figure is packaged in a way that makes it hard to use the feel method to determine what minion is in the bag.

More Minion Surprise Figures!


Yesterday I posted a pic of a Minion Maid mini figure. It is part of a ten piece Toys R US set. These are new Despicable Me figures. I did a little research and found out there are more minion surprise figures!

minion surprise blind bags

Here are the blind bags figures that were released last year. They were sold in random blind bags for $2.99 each. Last summer I could only find them at K-mart and Toys R Us. Once the Despicable Me 2 DVD came out more stores had them but by then the price increased to $3.99.  I never found a code for the blind bags.

blind bag minionsToy R US 2013 boxed set. Still listed online. You can see it has all of the first series of blind bag characters except for Carl, Lucy, Eduardo and Antonio. The set was $19.99.

  • Age: 4+;
  • Highly detailed collectible figures with display stands
  • Including The Minions – Dave, Tom, Stuart, Tim and Carl; The Girls – Margo, Edith and Agnes; Gru, Dr. Nefario, Lucy, Eduardo and Antonio, Unicorn.
  • Each sold separately in a foil bag.
  • New Figures coming soon!
  • Release August 1, 2014

This is what I found on Thinkway toys web site. The text is the same as from last year. The only change is they added “New Figures coming soon!” and “Release August 1, 2014” The first was last Friday. I have not seen the bags in store yet. I found the 2014 TRU Minion Made boxed set in late July. I didn’t know there were new bags on the way.

And here is the thinkway Minion Surprise current picture. There are twenty figures in this shot some old and some new. There’s a mix of 2013 and 2014 figures I broke them down into the table below. I called them  series 1 and 2 for sake of ease. I haven’t seen the bags yet. I hope the older ones are not mixed with the newer ones  in the blind bags. I will let you know once I find them in store.

Target also still have the Minion Surprise blind bags for $2.39. The only one i saw were in the entertainment section next to Despicable me 2 dvd which is on sale for $10 this week.

Walmart has Minion Surprise in the toy section and in the Easter section. I just wish they have a series 2 of the figs. I have all the minions.

Minion Surprise At Walmart.


Today for the first time, I spotted Minion Surprise blind bags at Wal-Mart. Until now I’ve only seen them at K-mart or Toys R Us.  Wal-Mart had boxes of them. Of course by now I have all the minions. So it’s not as a big deal as if they had them back in July. But I figured some Minions fans might still be looking. I still need a purple minion and fluffy.

I never found any codes for them. There is a card wrapped each figure.If you can push the figure part way out of the card, you can feel part of the figure.
Look on the back of a bag to see what body parts protrude from each character. Feel for a hand or foot sticking, or maybe a tuff of hair. Tim has a small tuff of hair and a cylindrical body. Dave and Tom’s hands stick out a bit. You can look at the pics and eliminate some of the figures. But a lot of it is guess work.

Minion collectors do you have any tip for determining what is in the bag?
