The LEGO Group, Illumination and Universal Products & Experiences have unveiled a lineup of LEGO “Despicable Me 4” products. Illumination’s newest chapter in the animated franchise, “Despicable Me 4,” will arrive in theaters worldwide on July 3. 

The sets capture special moments of Illumination’s “Despicable Me” franchise featuring Gru, his family and the Minions, along with new characters, including Mega Minions and Anti-Villain League (AVL) Minions, seen for the first time in “Despicable Me 4.” The AVL Minions, who look like secret agents in their suits, help capture and arrest villains. Mega Minions are not only larger versions of the well-known Minions; they also have secret superpowers, including the ability to stretch to surprising lengths or fly.

The four new sets, for ages 6 and over, include:  

  • Minions and Banana Car – A 136-piece set featuring a banana car with a driver seat and removeable engine with tools, gadgets and a set of Minions. 

  • Minions’ Music Party Bus – A 379-piece model, including functions such as a push-along bus that can turn into a Minion Party Playset once opened, featuring a hot tub and DJ station. 

  • Brick-Built Gru and Minions set – Made of 839 bricks shows a large Gru figure with jointed and moveable arms, hands and fingers, surrounded by five Minions and their accessories. The set also includes rotating features and new characters.  

  • Minions and Gru’s Family Mansion – An 868-piece set includes the growing family of six with Gru, Lucy, Gru Jr. and the girls: Margo, Edith and Agnes, alongside the iconic house, a gadget-filled laboratory and three Mega Minions.
