Always more, we want.
When the first Baby Yoda merch was revealed, everyone said it stunk. Then Funko and Disney released some stuff and we complained again. Now, finally, Hasbro is throwing its hat into the Baby Yoda ring and the results should have someone for everyone.
Starting right now, most major retailers are taking pre-orders on four new Baby Yoda toys (or “The Child” if you want to be technical about it). There’s a talking plush that retails for $US25 ($36); a 6.5 inch figure for $US20 ($29); a “Bounty Collection” which includes six different versions for $US8 ($12) each; and, everyone’s favourite, The Black Series, for $US10 ($15). Most importantly, that last one comes with “bone broth bowl, toy knob, and Sorgan frog” but it’s also the smallest of the bunch at just over an inch tall. To go with your Mandalorian Black Series, of course. They are all coming out in May 2020 in the U.S.
Editor’s Note: Australian pricing and release dates are yet to be confirmed for these products.
Here are the preliminary images. First, is the Black Series figure.
Here’s the talking plush.
Here’s the 6.5 inch.
And here is the Bounty Collection, which are six individual toys (available as single and two-packs). You can buy them all or just your favourite pose.

Unfortunately, as you can plainly see, only the talking plush is an actual physical toy right now; the rest seem to be computer-generated images. That’s what happens when a toy company is instantly met with huge demand and it just wants to get a product out into the marketplace. The potential is there though for all levels of collectors.
