    TF13: DESPICABLE ME 2 Receives The Royal Toy Treatment

    Thinkway Has A Figure For Everyone...


    2010's Despicable Me was an incredibly fun, stylish animated movie. Unfortunately, aside from some plush, Despicable Me came and went without any real collectibles. This year's Despicable Me 2 aims to not only be a better sequel, but it's bringing with it a whole Minion Mobile load of toys. I mean A LOT. It reminds me of Indiana Jones: for years collectors had slim pickings, but when Indy 4 released in theaters, the collectible flood gates opened wide.

    Despicable Me 2 will be receiving items from numerous companies. Hasbro has board games coming out (Monopoly and Operation) and Basic Fun will release a slick 3D View Master (yes, they still make them!) Most exciting will be Thinkway Toys and their diverse range of action figures, plush and role play items. The company behind the incredible Toy Story toys has some really high quality items coming - from well-sculpted mini PVC figures to high-end engineering marvels: Talking and Collector's Edition figures.

    Despicable Me 2 opens in theaters nationwide July 3rd, but fans will be able to get their collecting hands on the following items this May!




    MINION SURPRISE

    This assortment includes 1" - 2.5" tall mini PVC figures, including The Minions – Carl, Dave, Tom, Stuart and Tim; The Girls – Margo, Edith
    and Agnes; Gru; Dr. Nefario; Lucy; Eduardo and Antonio; Unicorn. Each sold separately at $3.99 OR collect them all with the Toys"R"Us exclusive 10-piece gift set!



    COLLECTIBLE FIGURES

    This assortment of 2" - 3.5" tall non-articulated figures (like larger mini PVC figs) includes Gru, Dr. Nefario, Phil, Dave, Stuart, Minion Golfer, Minion Fireman (2 styles), Minion Baker, Minion Rock Star, Minion Ninja. SRP of $4.99 each. Collect them all!



    The Collectible Figures are compatible with the R/C Minion Mobile (9”). Priced at a SRP of $39.99, this fun ride includes Voice, Lights and Sounds, 10+ Sayings and a bonus Minion Tim Driver! Place a Collectible Figure on the Minion Mobile's catapult to hurl them into orbit!



    DELUXE ACTION FIGURES

    This 5" - 7" figure series is aimed at kids with a focus on fun action features. SRP $14.99 each, this assortment includes:

    TALKING ACTION FIGURES

    These are by far my favorite Depsicable Me 2 toys. Priced at a SRP of $34.99 each, this assortment of 8.5" - 11" figures are electronic, each figure responding to touch in a unique way. Their bodies are a cool rubbery material and they also feature poseable arms. Check out the short video above to see Minion Stuart in action! Assortment includes:

    * Minion Stuart (8.5”) - Laughing Action Figure. 45 Sayings/Giggles in Original Movie Voice. LOL Mode – Quickly press Stuart’s pocket 6 times to activate his Laugh Out Loud mode. Press the
