So as I sit here and eat my fourth bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios for the day I thought I'd post a quick write up on the 'Mini Minions' that come packaged inside specially marked boxes. Grab your milk & spoons and dig in!
The Mini Minions stand just shy of 3 inches tall and about 1/2 inch thick. They have a 3.5 inch cord above their heads for attaching them to your bags and what not.
I don't know the official names of the figures, but based on the photos it looks like we have:
Evil Minion (One Eye)
Evil Minion (Two Eyes)

Can't wait to learn more about these characters in Despicable Me 2 which is out in theaters next week
The facial expressions on the Mini Minions are great, and the biggest draw to collecting these figures. They capture the Minions charming personalities perfectly.
The paint on the figures is hit or miss with the Minions I've gotten so far. As you can see in the photo above, the Evil Minion has some cracks in his eyes, while Phil has what looks like tarter on his teeth.
The back of the cereal box features Despicable Me inspired puzzles to keep you occupied while you enjoy your Cheerios. No spoilers here, I'll let you figure the riddles out for yourself.
