You saw those dull T-shirts and wanted something more. Well, behold, the inevitable day has come: The Mandalorian’s real star and Best Star Wars Baby 2k19, Baby Yoda, has been inducted into the endless, black-eyed halls of Funko fame.
The official Funko blog has just revealed our first look at the company’s big, bobble-headed take on the diminutive baby—a.k.a. officially as “The Child” because really, we can’t actually have Lucasfilm calling him Baby Yoda and giving Star Wars canon diehards a hernia. The Baby Yoda Pop Vinyl won’t depict the Mandalorian’s lil’ charge in his egg-like floating crib seen in the first three episodes of the series, however, but standing tall (well, as tall as a Funko Pop of a baby can be) and lifting one-arm raised as he calls upon the power of the Force.
Or reaches out for that knob on the Razorcrest’s dashboard, who can say. The Child Pop will be available in two forms, a standard 3.75-inch figure available wherever Funko Pops are sold (so basically everywhere) and a Target-exclusive version that will tower over it at 10-inches tall. Which is, for now, the closest we’ll have to a life-sized Baby Yoda toy until those inevitably start getting made next year.
The Baby Yoda Funko will hit store shelves sometime in “early Spring” in the U.S. so it’s likely to come to Australia in Autumn 2020. That’s far enough away for you to mentally prepare for the people who absolutely will fight each other in store aisles to get their mitts on this fella like they’re all members of the Bounty Hunter Guild.
