A Life-Size Baby Yoda Replica Is Now Available To Preorder

The breakout star of Star Wars: The Mandalorian was undoubtedly Baby Yoda, the baby creature who obviously comes from the same species as Yoda and Yaddle from the film series. Baby Yoda (referred to as “The Child” in the series) has already been announced for Build-A-Bear and has its own toy range, but for the truly dedicated, there’s a bigger version coming.

Sideshow Collectibles is releasing a $350 life-size replica of “The Child,” which will stand 16.5″ tall. It’s a mixed-media statue that stands on a small black platform, and while it won’t coo or use the Force like the one of television, it’s still pretty adorable. It’s holding the little shifter knob that it grows so attached to in the series, and the baby’s head is covered in a fine fuzz of hair.

It’s not cheap, but this looks like a pretty authentic replica of the character. They’re not expected to ship until the period between August and September 2020–an exact date has not been set.

It’s a bit cheaper than the $5 million that the actual puppet used in the series cost–but then, maybe this version won’t look quite as authentic cradled in George Lucas’ arms.

The Mandalorian will return in fall 2020 for a second season. Barring a huge time jump, Baby Yoda should be returning, too.
