Looks like the minions from this movie are the new Raving Rabbids! You can expect all your friends that see this movie to be screaming "IT'S SO FLUFFFFEEE!!!
Just FYI, Toy Factory seems to be the only company doing toys. The line is all plush with no apparent features (my sadness that they don't talk will be visible) including Edith, Agnes, Margo, Agnes' Unicorn (is it fluffy enough??!! probably not.) and minions Stewart, Dave and Jorge.
Here's the official movie synopsis...
In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, we discover Gru (voiced by Steve Carell), planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon (Yes, the moon!) in Universal’s new 3-D CGI feature, Despicable Me.
Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays, and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad.
The world’s greatest villain has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes. Despicable Me hits theaters July 9th, 2010.
