It looks like LEGO fans in Australia may have the better end of the deal on this one, especially if you’re an avid collector of LEGO Brickheadz and Universal Pictures adorable little yellow guys. Promobricks has just shared our first look at some of the box arts of the upcoming LEGO Brickheadz Minions The Rise of Gru sets. Check this out.
According to a report from Promobricks, these box art images started circulating over the Australian LEGO fan community when a LEGO-certified store in the region somehow posted these sets quite earlier than expected. However, it seems that these newest LEGO Brickheadz entries were taken down already, with the sets no longer listed as of this posting.
These pair of LEGO Brickheadz Minions sets both features a three-character pack, giving the film’s humorous characters their first-ever Brickheadz treatment. Set 40421 features Bob, Kevin, and Belle Bottom – a new villain in the Despicable Me franchise. A new Minion character is also introduced in the movie and is likewise given his first LEGO rendition. As such, set 40420 includes Bob, Stuart, and a new yellow cutie in town, Otto. And in case you missed it, you may want to check the film’s official trailer to have a glimpse of these new characters.
Though we don’t have any other information about these new LEGO Brickheadz other than their box art images, we can expect a steady stream of news in the coming weeks as we anticipate these sets to arrive sometime in June. And though these new Brickheadz sets are yet to appear via LEGO’s online shopping portal, LEGO has also dedicated new LEGO sets under the Minions theme. Be sure to check them out as well over at LEGO Shop@Home. In the meantime, let’s take a look at these. I’ll update this post once new info comes in.
