Hasbro's flurry of 'The Mandalorian' toys includes an animatronic Baby Yoda

Hasbro's flurry of 'The Mandalorian' toys includes an animatronic Baby Yoda”

Baby Yoda has taken over our hearts, and soon it'll be taking over our wallets too. Baby Yoda was kept underwraps in the lead up to the series which is why much of the merchandise for the show and the character is only being released now. Pre-orders for the animatronic Baby Yoda are live now, and shockingly, it's only $60.

Though Disney often markets Star Wars toys and apparel long before major premieres, this time around, Favreau, 53, revealed during a red carpet interview past year that he successfully persuaded the media giant to hold back on marketing Baby Yoda.

The character, officially called The Child, but which has been dubbed Baby Yoda by fans, is the breakout star of the "Star Wars"-themed show on the Disney+ subscription streaming service".

The Child Animatronic Plush isn't the only cool thing dropping with the Star Wars Hasbro line. In addition to the ragged bounty hunter's ship the set is named for, you'll get Lego figures of the Mandalorian, Greek Karga, a Scout Trooper, IG-11 (voted best nurse-droid in the galaxy), and the adorable Child mini-fig!

Details of what will be included in a Disney+ subscription in the United Kingdom are still a little unclear, but The Mandalorian and Baby Yoda will definitely feature. "Mandalorian" showrunners Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni convinced Disney several months prior to forgo making Baby Yoda toys ahead of the holiday sales season to keep a lid on the character's surprise appearance on their show.

Disney partnered with toy makers Hasbro Inc, Funko Inc and Mattel Inc to make board games, figures and costumes.

Are you excited for season two of The Mandalorian? . Though, we've had some Baby Yoda merchandise come down the proverbial pipe since then, today at the New York Toy Fair Hasbro revealed a smorgasbord of sweet Baby Yoda belongings.
