For Star Wars fans who can’t get enough of The Child aka Baby Yoda (which isn’t really young Yoda, btw, but a fitting name cos’ The Child makes anyone loving it sounds like a pedophile), you can look forward to the LEGO version.
No, not the Brickheadz version! The actual LEGO-built figure of the adorable Baby Yoda. If you haven’t already heard, LEGO 75318 Baby Yoga will join LEGO’s The Mandalorian lineup (which is just four, really).
While we don’t know when it will arrive, a store in Luxembourg was spotted selling it. Yes! Already! So, its arrival is pretty soon. The set, which is recommended for ages 10 and up, and features some SNOT, or Studs Not On Top, technique.
No clue as to how many pieces it had, but it will build into an adorable 19 cm (7.5 inches) tall figure that is 21 cm (8.3 inches) across (ears, man, the ears!). Apparently, it is posable too, featuring rotatable head, and moving ears and hands.
The set comes with UCS-style brick-built plaque with a data sticker, plus a bonus Baby Yoda minifigure., Sweet. Oh, we forgot that it also comes with the silver ball thingy (a level knob) that The Child unplugged and tried to play with in Episode 3.
According to a report, the set was originally set to hit the stores in November, but it have been pushed forward and hence, the sighting of it in the wild. Strangely, though. Only in Luxembourg as of August.
It is not even listed on LEGO Denmark website which makes us curious as to why. Somebody missed the embargo, perhaps?
Anywho, it is not clear how much it costs when it arrives to the stateside, but the store where it was spotted had it listed at €79.50 (around US$94.20, which is a weird pricing. I mean, it usually ends with 0.99 cents even in euro, doesn’t it?).
