There’s little question that Baby Yoda (aka “The Child”) is the most adorable character in the history of the entire Star Wars universe. This little dude walked on the scene, took one look at all of the ewoks, porgs, and roller-droids, and said “hold my beer.” Now, you can have your very own Baby Yoda to look up at you longingly with its big expressive eyes and horizontal green ears.
The guys at Sideshow teamed up with Legacy Effects to bring us this amazingly accurate, life-size version of The Child. The little guy measures 16.5″ tall, and looks exactly like its character in The Mandalorian. Every little detail is there, from the peach fuzz on its head to the subtly-hued irises we barely noticed even on our big 4K screen.
The inquisitive figure comes swaddled in his furry brown coat, and holds a silver shift knob between his three-fingered hand, just like the one The Child plucked from Mando’s ship, the Razor Crest.
Priced at $350, the lifelike figure isn’t cheap, but that’s a far cry from the reported $5 million that it cost them to develop the puppet used on the Disney+ series. I’ve never spent that much on a collectible figure myself, but I’m prepared to drop that much to have Baby Yoda in my house.
If you want Baby Yoda as much as I do, drop by Sideshow, and place your pre-order today. The figure is expected to start shipping this fall, sometime between August and October.
