Illumination’s Minions have tapped street artist, Buff Monster, to collaborate on a limited-edition apparel drop, the Minions x Buff Monster capsule collection – available in limited quantities, exclusively at Universal UNIVRS – a destination located at Universal CityWalk Hollywood and inside Universal Studios Florida at Universal Orlando Resort. 

This will be the second collaboration between Buff Monster and the Minions, after the launch of a beach-themed apparel line in 2016. 

“I’ve always loved the Minions and how playful and expressive they are, so for this new collection, I was intrigued by the idea of having my ice cream characters, generally referred to as Mister Melty or The Melty Misfits, interact with the Minions in fun and dynamic ways,” says Buff Monster. “We focused on combining Minions Bob, Kevin and Stuart with my characters in surprising and unexpected compositions, using an assortment of bold key graphics and patterns across various clothing items made for a varied and cohesive capsule collection.” 

The new capsule is available at UNIVRS, a retail destination that brings brands from across NBCUniversal to life through apparel and lifestyle offerings that lean into the “get it before it’s gone” drop culture. Tapping into entertainment and fashion tastemakers through their style-driven offerings, merchandise at UNIVRS marries brand designs with current fashion silhouettes and trending styles driven by characters and on-screen moments. 

The Minions x Buff Monster apparel capsule includes T-shirts, tanks, loungewear and more and is available in limited quantities only at UNIVRS stores in Hollywood and Orlando.
