Just ahead of the New York Toy Fair, Hasbro has announced a wave of new “Star Wars: The Mandalorian” merchandise featuring Baby Yoda, including electric dolls, action figures and also some variations of classic board games.
“Finding ways to engage and surprise audiences with this new Star Wars story has been a tremendous opportunity,” said The Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau. “And holding back on product development gave everyone the chance to discover the character affectionately known to fans as “Baby Yoda” together. This is something special in the age of spoilers. I am so appreciative of the partnership with the teams at Lucasfilm and Disney who are translating these characters into products for fans to enjoy.”
Many of these items will be available to pre-order from retailers in the US and the UK.
Here is a look at some of the new exciting products available from Hasbro:
