While the trailer may have come out a bit late, Disney is now going full steam with the marketing of The Mandalorian Season 2. With Baby Yoda coming out as one of the more favorite characters of the show, LEGO has revealed their huge build-and-display set for the tiny green Force-user.

 

 

Here’s the official description:

Turn the cuteness factor up to the max with this LEGO® Star Wars™ The Child (75318) build-and-display model. Authentic details of this popular character, affectionately known as Baby Yoda, are recreated in LEGO style, with posable head, ears and mouth for different expressions, plus the Child’s favorite toy – a gearshift knob (element included) – for it to hold just like it does in Star Wars: The Mandalorian.

While the arms of the figure look pretty stiff, you can move the head and the hands. Probably the thing that helps make the figure most expressive is the ears which can be moved up and down.

The figure also comes with the knob that Baby Yoda plays with on the show; plus it also comes with a Baby Yoda minifigure to display beside the official signage.

I’ll admit, LEGO has been doing a great job when it comes to busts of Boba Fett and Stormtroopers, but they’re still having some trouble when it comes to replicating alien faces. Their Yoda set was kind of bashed for looking bad, but this Baby Yoda does look a tad better.

LEGO’s The Child will run for $79.99 and will be available come Oct. 30—the same day as the premiere of The Mandalorian Season 2 on Disney+.
