Despicable Me 2 Talking Figures Review
If you or your child enjoyed the Despicable Me 2 movie, you’ll like these limited edition collectible talking figures that put the movie’s adorable little stars Dave, Gru and Agnes right in your hand. A Certificate of Authenticity accompanies each piece and their clothing is identical to what they wore in the movie.
Dave, Agnes and Gru all speak 30 to 40 Minion sayings in their original voices just like in the movie. Wearing the familiar clothing they all wore in the movie, Dave, Gru and Agnes measure from 9 to 14 inches high. You can keep them in the see-through case as a collectible or take them out to play with. Dave is the shortest at just over 9 inches high, Agnes is around 11 inches high while the big hulking Gru is a full 14 inches tall. (The images in our photo are pasted together and are not to scale.) Batteries are included.
As well as talking, each of the three Despicable Me 2 characters has their own featured action. Press Agnes’s T-shirt twice and she will sing the unicorn song. Dave delivers a Minion song when you press his chin twice. They also understand and respond when you raise your voice.
All three figures have clothes made of well-stitched fabric. Gru is clothed in jacket, scarf and pants. Agnes wears a fabric shirt, and both she and Dave wear authentic-looking denim overalls. In the special Collector’s Edition you also get a display stand.
In short, these “intelligent” collectible versions of Minion Dave, Agnes and Gru really do look just like they did in the movie. They can be kept inside the transparent-fronted box for value as a collectors’ item or taken out and played with just like any other toy.
The voices are very accurate and so are the faces and other physical characteristics of each figure. Clothes are accurately copied too. Their heads, eyes and mouths move, and you can pose them as well. A nice collectible item or playtime toy for fans of the movie of any age from 4 up.
