Despicable Me Action Figures

Despicable Me MinionDreamWorks’ (DWA) Despicable Me 2 was one of the biggest box-office hits of the year, pulling in more than $350 million this summer. So it’s no surprise that the movie has spawned a line of popular toys.

There are a variety of Despicable Me toys out there — everything from small figures to Despicable Me Monopoly — but the big-ticket item for this Christmas are the collector’s edition toys. The minions, in particular are expected to sell fast, like the Minion Dave Talking Action Figure.

It’s pricey for an action figure, retailing for as much as $70, but it has plenty of features to justify that expense. The figure comes with talking sound effects, changeable expressions, fart sounds and — the real selling point — “super fart sounds.”
