LEGO Despicable Me 4 75583 Minions and Gru's Family Mansion Rumoured For May 2024

Yesterday LEGO revealed a brand new LEGO Despicable Me 4 set as part of its April Fools prank but there was a lot more to the fake set than what meets the eye. 75553 Supersized Tim became another fake LEGO set as the Danish toy company showed off a lifesized brick-built version of the yellow Minion Tim. However, along with pictures of the fake model, a countdown also began to the debut of the LEGO Despicable Me 4 theme.

The countdown finishes on the 3rd of April 2024 (tomorrow) indicating the official presentation of four LEGO Despicable Me 4 sets will take place. Amongst these brand new child-friendly LEGO models is 75583 which will be a brick-built recreation of Gru's House. The villain-turned-good guy's house will include a total of 868 pieces retailing for $99.99 making it the most expansive Minions-based LEGO set yet.

Gru's House is an iconic location in the Despicable Me 4 world with the building showcasing Gru's dark and evilness. Compared to all the other houses in the neighbourhood which are painted white, Gru's is a mix of black and dark grey with a dead garden out front. He even spreads some of his evilness to his neighbours by making his dog Kyle wee on the green bushes.

75583 Minions and Gru's Family Mansion will likely be similar to another iconic house which appeared in brick-built form early last year of 43217 Up House. Even though this LEGO Disney set retailed for a lot less at only $59.99, Gru's House will still portray some similar characteristics but just at a big, more spacious and play-friendly scale.

The difference in the price will most likely be because Gru's house is naturally bigger, particularly from the front-on angle. LEGO may also have listened to fan complaints and included a much more expansive interior, stretching a few studs further back and including a lot more of the iconic rooms from all four Despicable Me films. Hopefully, the lab, the girls' room, the kitchen, the sitting room and much more are included for $99.99.

And the set can't be complete without a few Minifigures. For a $100 price tag, a total of nine characters/Minifigures are included. These are the Minions of Tim, Mel and Jerry along with the Gru family themselves of Gru, Lucy, Gru Junior, Margo, Edith and Agnes. We expect quite a few of these to be exclusive to 75583 Minions and Gru's Family Mansion once it releases on the 1st of May 2024.
