In case you missed it, Brickset has shared several images of what could be our next minifigure pack coming from a licensed theme. The LEGO Minions Kung Fu Training Minifigure Pack (40511) is a great way to kick off the LEGO Minions The Rise of Gru theme and features most of the main characters of its tie-in film.
This latest minifigure pack joins the likes of other film-inspired minifigure offerings like the LEGO Harry Potter Wizarding World Minifigure Pack (40500), and the LEGO Marvel Spider-Man, and the Museum Break-In Minifigure Pack (40343) from 2019. These packs usually feature 3 to 4 minifigures and a great way to collect some of the licensed characters that are usually included in larger sets.
The LEGO Minions Kung Fu Training Minifigure Pack includes Gru, Bellow Bottom, Bob, and Kevin together with an assortment of LEGO pieces to recreate a martial arts training dummy and some weapons worthy of a despicable underling. It’s a great way to have Gru as an official minifigure, which is also included in the larger Unstoppable Bike Chase (75549) set. LEGO is also throwing in an exclusive minifigure in the form of the stylish villain, Bellow Bottom. This is a great incentive to get this Minifigure Pack since this is the only set where she is included. And of course, if you wish to build your own troop of minions – and if you’re planning to complete all the sets under the theme – then getting this minifigure pack gives you a total of 15 cute yellow villains to command.
Though the rest of the LEGO Minions The Rise of Gru sets are now available for purchase, the LEGO Minions Kung Fu Training Minifigure Pack (40511) is expected to arrive on July 1st, and will most likely retail for $15. I will update this post once they make their appearance over at LEGO Shop@Home.
