It was only a matter of time. LEGO® Baby Yoda is coming soon. The news comes as no surprise given the popularity of Disney’s The Mandalorian. Add to that the cult following Baby Yoda generated following the launch of the program. Now Star Wars and LEGO® fans will be able to build their own version of the Child.
The official press release offers the following:
Today, the LEGO Group reveals its latest construction set featuring the beloved character from the Lucasfilm series Star Wars: The Mandalorian™. The LEGO® Star Wars™ The Child construction set is inspired by the small-in-size but powerful-in-charisma character, the Child (or Baby Yoda as fans have affectionately dubbed the character), from the series.
In terms of set specifics, fans can expect:
- NAME: The Child
- SET #: 75318
- THEME: Star Wars
- COST: $99.99 CAD ($79.99 USD, €99, £69.99)
- BRICK COUNT: 1073
- MINIFIGURES: 1 Baby Yoda (same as in Razor Crest)
- DIMENSIONS: just under 20 cm (7.8”) high
- PRE-ORDER DATE: September 21, 2020
- RELEASE DATE: October 30, 2020
- COST-PER-BRICK: $0.093 (very good)
The Child features a poseable head, ears, and mouth for customizable expressions. I do not collect many Star Wars sets, but this makes a great display piece. As a fan of The Mandalorian, I am tempted to pick this up. What are your thoughts on the Baby Yoda coming soon from the LEGO® Group? Feel free to comment below or reach out on social media.
Until next time,
