Lego has announced a new buildable Baby Yoda construction set.
In The Mandalorian season 1, Mando had the hard task of finding and protecting The Child, a.k.a., Baby Yoda, from every threat imaginable. Now, if you want your own Baby Yoda, have no fear. There’s no rescuing and protecting involved, all you have to do is grab the latest construction set from Lego, and you’re set.
The toy company announced today that a new Baby Yoda set is coming, and it will be available everywhere on Oct. 30 — just in time for the premiere of The Mandalorian season 2! Officially titled LEGO Star Wars The Child, it will run you $79.99 to purchase it when it’s available.
This set comes with just over 1,000 pieces, and the finished model will be about 7 inches high. While Baby Yoda himself is estimated to be about 16.5 inches tall, the model for this little guy is just about half that size, so it’s the perfect fit to display around the room or for a kid to play with. The model also comes with a posable head, movable ears, and an adjustable mouth, so there’s a number of ways you can get your new Lego friend to look and pose.
The set is recommended for people over the age of 10, but we all know Lego sets can be played with at any age, especially when it comes to Star Wars sets.
In addition to the buildable model of Baby Yoda, the set also comes with a Lego plaque with stats about The Child such as his age and height. And if that wasn’t enough, it also comes with an additional mini-figure of The Child that you can attach to the plaque or use in other Lego adventures.
“When I received the challenge to create a LEGO brick-built version of the Child, I knew that I had to get it just right,” says Michael Lee Stockwell, Design Manager, LEGO® Star Wars™. “The goal was to capture the charm, and above all, the cuteness of the character, so we worked meticulously, choosing and placing each and every brick. We even included authentic details like the gearstick knob – a favorite toy of the Child as seen in the series.”
This isn’t the only new Mandalorian merch coming. Star Wars announced Mando Mondays are starting on Oct. 26, so it looks like there’s a lot more Mandalorian merch on the way soon!
The Mandalorian season 2 begins streaming on Disney+ Oct. 30.
