In a classic case of life imitating art, it seemed like everyone in the galaxy wanted to get his or her hands on “The Child” but not a one could find it. Until now.
Sideshow Collectibles revealed their 1:1 scale The Child Figure yesterday, promptly crashing their website moments after.
Ever since debuting in the hit Disney+ series The Mandalorian, The Child has become an overnight sensation, conquering social media and meme culture with ease. Even if you didn’t watch the show, you knew who “Baby Yoda” was, whether or not you wanted to. The cutest thing to hit fandom was everywhere – except, oddly enough, on the store shelves.
In an inexplicable move, Disney did not have any collectibles or toys prepared for the phenomenon’s introduction, despite being one of the giants of merchandising. Whether or not this was due to the insistence of the showrunners and their desire to maintain the “reveal” of the character or a lack of understanding of just how darn adorable The Child is, we’ll never know.
However, that void of merchandise has led to a gnawing hunger for product that a few plushies were never going to be able to quell. Sideshow Collectibles knows that and has arrived on the scene just in time with possibly the best way to scratch your “Baby Yoda” itch.
The life-size The Child replica measures in at 16.5″ tall and is made from a mixture of plastic, resin, and fabric. There are many impressive recreations on display here, from the coat to the size to the tiny little individual hairs on the top of the figure’s head, but the real showstopper here is those hypnotic, lovable eyes.
One look at those glossy orbs and I’m ready to not only pre-order this little fella, but a stroller and crib too!
