Continuity mistake: When Gru is explaining his plan to the minions, one of them takes out a torpedo and fires. The torpedo is held by one of the taller minions at first, but after the torpedo has fired and Gru says "Hey, Dave", we can see the torpedo was held by one of the smaller minions.

Suggested correction: The minion holding the torpedo was a small one all along. The taller one is probably just one in the crowd. If you look closely when the minions grab their weapons, Dave, the one who held it in the first place, is a short minion holding a torpedo.
