Holy Mega Minions! BTS, Lego and More Have Their Own Despicable Me 4 Merch

It's going to be a summer of Minions popping up everywhere, from collabs with BTS to new Despicable Me 4 inspired Lego sets. 

By Tara Bennett

Time to grab a bunch of bananas and your honorary Gru "Dad Girl" fairy wings because Despicable Me 4 is almost upon us, releasing in theaters July 3!

The fourth installment in Illumination's Despicable Me movies finds supervillain turned Anti-Villain League agent Gru (Steve Carell) leveling up as the proud daddy to baby Gru Jr. With the help of his wife and fellow agent Lucy Wilde (Kristen Wiig) and his beloved daughters, Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Edith (Dana Gaier) and Agnes (Madison Polan), Gru has to protect his family from escaped supervillain's Maxime Le Mal (Will Ferrell) and his girlfriend, Valentina (Sofía Vergara).

The threat puts the family in the witness protection program and Silas Ramsbottom (Steve Coogan), the former director of the Anti-Villain League, coming out of retirement to find a way to protect his agents. Enter the Minions superpower program which will have very unexpected results. 

The new characters, Minions and set pieces will be showing up in a whole host of new Despicable Me 4 toys and collectibles available now. NBC Insider has collected some of our favorites that will extend the movie fun throughout the summer.

The new character of Poppy Prescott (Joey King) is a new neighbor for Gru's family and she has quite the love for the band. In honor of her pop heroes. The Pop Up allows visitors to explore Poppy Prescott's Tree House film set, participate in interactive activations, and shop at the retail experience featuring BTS members in Minion form.

POP MART Despicable Me 4 Figures
