Really, the defining characteristic of a Minion is their ability to be blown off a catwalk at a moment’s notice. And so, one of the more elaborate (and often used) purpose-built props I made for “Minions at Work” was a length of catwalk. It’s three feet long (that’s 18 feet in Minion scale), and by my estimate, has 112 parts of wood. metal, and plastic.
