You can grow your own Child, you can wear you can wear your own Child, and, now, you can build your own Child. The LEGO Group has released a new Baby Yoda construction set that leaves it up to you to put the 1,073 pieces together.
The 7.8-inch-tall Child was designed for ages 10 and up. The pieces are primarily brown and green, so the end results show an adorable Baby Yoda in its iconic coat. It even has a gearshift knob element — it is The Child’s favorite toy, after all. It has a posable head, movable ears, and an adjustable mouth to give it different expressions, so you can choose how to pose it before putting it on display.
Don’t let the 1,073-piece set intimidate you, because it comes with step-by-step illustrated instructions. So while it might be challenging, the bricks will come together to create something you can only find far, far away.
“When I received the challenge to create a LEGO brick-built version of the Child, I knew that I had to get it just right,” Michael Lee Stockwell, design manager, LEGO Star Wars, said in a press release. “The goal was to capture the charm, and above all, the cuteness of the character, so we worked meticulously, choosing and placing each and every brick. We even included authentic details like the gearstick knob — a [favorite] toy of the Child as seen in the series.”
The Baby Yoda set is available for preorder beginning on Sept. 21 for $79.99 and will be globally for sale on Oct. 30 at LEGO.com, LEGO Stores, and other retailers. If you’re wondering why LEGO chose that date, maybe it’s because that Oct. 30 is also the day that season 2 of Star Wars: The Mandalorian comes out on Disney+. It’s shaping up to be a good Friday!
