THE FIRE WIRE 2013 Holiday Must Have List: Despicable Me 2 Minion Dave Talking Action Figure


The Despicable Me 2 Minion Dave Talking Action Figure ($35) is one of three talking minions available from the Despicable Me 2 toy line-up. All three minions (Dave, Tim, and Stuart) have a special mode unique to each figure. 

Dave’s special mode is “banana mode,” where he … well, farts. Press on his tongue to enter this mode, and Dave says, “banana,” after which he’ll happily rip a big one the next time you push his pocket or move his head.

Kids still not laughing hard enough? Just press his tongue twice in a row to enter “super banana mode,” at which point he’ll let it rip even louder and longer.


He also has 55 different sayings and noises that have been faithfully reproduced from the actual Dave character in the movies. All of the minions’ voices and sayings are unique, so you won’t be getting any recycled sound bites if you own all three. Dave is 8″ tall, which is the same height as Stuart (Tim is taller at 10″).

The facial expressions that are possible with this model, the high-quality audio recordings, and the soft-touch skin that so faithfully reproduces the look of the character in the movies all come together to make this figure a must-have for any fan of Despicable Me and its minions.
