Too cute, he is.
Everyone’s favorite character from the new Disney+ show “Star Wars: The Mandalorian” — Baby Yoda, whose official name is “The Child” — now comes in Funko form.
The same day Baby Yoda plush toys became available for pre-sale, a Funko POP! version of the little green guy is available for under $10.
The standard size Funko of “The Child” is just $8.78 at Walmart and just like the plush toy, it won’t ship out until May 2020. The larger sized Funko, a 10-inch super-sized POP! figurine — is $29.96 for pre-order at Walmart and also ships out in May.
“Always at the forefront of pop culture, Funko is excited to announce the item will be available for shipment in early Spring with additional details to come,” the brand writes on its blog.
Funko POP! collectible vinyl figurines are also available at Target for pre-order without an official release date listed, and on shopDisney, but will ship out between May and June 2020, according to the site.
Even more “Mandalorian” merchandise may soon be coming. Disney says even more licensed Baby Yoda merch will hit shelves in 2020, Gizmodo reports.
The latest merch comes the same day retailers released pre-order 11-inch plush toys of the breakout star for $24.99, which also ship out next year.
Disney released official merchandise last week but unfortunately did not include any stuffed animals in the initial offerings. Jon Favreau, the creator of “The Mandalorian,” revealed in an interview that Baby Yoda merch was delayed to avoid spoilers before the series’ Nov. 12 premiere.
“The way the cat usually gets out of the bag with that stuff is merchandising and toy catalogs and things like that,” Favreau told Entertainment Tonight. “We really wanted to have it be that you had to watch it yourself, so that every time you watch the show, there are new twists and secrets that come out. Part of that was holding back on some of the merchandise and holding back on some of the characters.”
However, fans looking to put stuffed animal Baby Yodas underneath the Christmas tree this year have resorted to the black market. There are plenty of stuffed toys available — some creepier than others — on handmade purveyor Etsy and Amazon currently has a small, unofficial plush available. Walmart has several options for unlicensed Baby Yoda apparel. A men’s T-shirt retails for $23 along with a kids’ version for the same price.
