The Mandalorian‘s adorable little sidekick is looking for a new home! Go on. You know you want to!!
Aside from being THE BEST streamer in history, Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian is the home of the cutest little alien in the galaxy (Sorry Babu Frik) The Child, or as he is affectionately known by EVERYONE, Baby Yoda.
The adorable little green alien was first unleashed upon the unsuspecting fanbase in the series’ stellar first chapter and has since gone on to attain a cult-like following which has spawned numerous memes and a ton of hotly anticipated merchandise. And now, the moment your wallets have been dreading has finally arrived … the Baby Yoda life-size figure is now available to pre-order from Sideshow.
Standing at 1:1 scale and costing $350/£265, this life-sized figure is an absolute must-have and is expected to ship between August and October 2020.
Here’s the write up from the Sideshow website:
Sideshow presents The Child Life-Size Figure, created in partnership with Legacy Effects to bring you the galaxy’s most sought-after bounty.
Lovingly referred to by audiences as ‘Baby Yoda’, the mysterious alien known as The Child has quickly become the breakout fan-favorite of Star Wars™: The Mandalorian on Disney+. Now eager collectors can become a clan of two and bring home the asset as an incredible 1:1 scale Star Wars collectible, no tracking fob needed.
The Child Life-Size Figure measures 16.5” tall, standing on a simple ship deck base that lets this adorable alien steal all of the focus- along with the Mandalorian’s ship parts. Inspired by its unique onscreen appearance, this mixed media statue features a tan fabric coat swaddling The Child as it gazes up with charming wide eyes, hiding the silver shift knob from the Razor Crest™ in its right hand.
Every inch of this incredibly lifelike figure has been meticulously detailed to recreate everything that Star Wars fans love about the young alien, from the fuzz on its wrinkled head to its irresistible pout, all the way down to its tiny, toddling feet. Fans looking to bring home The Mandalorian collectibles need look no further- bounty hunting is a complicated profession but collecting the galaxy’s cutest alien has never been easier!
Okay, you’ve had a taste of what he looks like but its time to get up close and personal. Scroll down and get ready to feel your wallet lighten!
Okay, despite being a lifelong action figure collector I have yet to succumb to the allure of Sideshow’s impressive range, but I’ve gotta admit that Baby Yoda is calling out to me! What is it about this adorable little creature that makes grown men and women alike weak at the knees? I’ll be damned if I know. But what can I tell you, I’ll probably end up buying one and sitting him in front of the TV in time for Season Two!
Get your orders in early, this little guy is a limited edition. You can order yours here.
Thank you, Sideshow! Looks like I’m going to have to buy him a little bed to sleep in NOW too!
