DXT16 Gru


Felonius Gru is the protagonist of Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2 and Despicable Me 3. He was formerly a supervillain and jelly manufacturer and a consultant for the Anti-Villain League. As a child he had always dreamed of going to the moon. He made a "prototype" rocket out of macaroni and an actual working prototype rocket. For most of his childhood he was neglected and ignored by his mother, and it is unknown if this is what inspired him to become a supervillain. Gru is a tall, bald man with blue eyes, long nose and broad, powerful physique; and dresses in a light grey sweater underneath a black collared coat along with a striped grey scarf, black trousers, and shoes.

The Hot Wheels version is based on a long, sleek speedster. Gru's scarf is printed on the top. The Beige part of the car represents his ginormous nose.
