Good Smile Company announced Minions Nendoroids at WonHobbyG 2023 Spring. These will be its first figures of characters tied to the Despicable Me franchise. Figures based on Bob, Kevin, and Stuart are planned. All three appeared in unpainted prototype form at the event.
Here’s a closer look at all three. In order from left to right are Stuart, Kevin, and Bob. While Stuart and Kevin’s figures don’t feature any specific poses, Bob is accompanied by a teddy bear. So we at least know one accessory that will come with one of the Minions Nendoroids.

There have been two movies based on these Despicable Me mascots so far. One is Minions, and the other is Minions: The Rise of Gru. As for the mainline series, there are three films.
Aside from characters from western animation, we also saw plenty of other Nendoroids come out of this event. For example, there’s going to be a Nendoroid of Chiaki from Danganronpa 2. Hollow Knight Nendoroids are also in the works.
There’s no release date for the Minions Nendoroids of Bob, Kevin, and Stuart, as the three are still in development.
