Remember when there was a drought of “baby Yoda” merchandise when ‘The Mandalorian’ first aired? We all wondered what Disney was thinking. Releasing concept art stamped on shirts akin to a Cafe Press shop? Geez…
Now you can’t enter a single store without seeing Grogu’s face splashed across all manner of merchandise. Hand sanitizer, tissues, toothbrushes, beach towels, and I swore I saw a marital aid. That last one may not have been an officially licensed product.
On the collectibles side, there are also several Grogu items. For those of us who love 1/6th scale figures, Hot Toys is going to deliver. The tiny force-wielding frog muncher is going to join his caretaker with a new figure sometime next year.
Hot Toys typically come with hyper-detailed accessories on top of the amazingly sculpted figure. Grogu will come with the following:
- Authentic and detailed likeness of Grogu in Star Wars: The Mandalorian series
- Highly-accurate facial expression, detailed wrinkles, and skin texture
- One (1) Grogu wrapped in blanket
- One (1) Grogu with normal expression in sitting posture (equipped with magnetic function)
- One (1) Grogu with mouth opened expression in sitting posture (equipped with magnetic function)
- Each head sculpt is specially hand-painted
- One (1) equipment storage box with weathering effects
- One (1) metallic painted hover pram with cover and blanket
- One (1) Loth-cat
- One (1) Sorgan frog
- Two (2) specially designed figure stands for prams
Grogu may be the most affordable Hot Toys release coming in at just $145! If you’ve ever owned a Hot Toys figure before, you know that they can get pretty expensive. You are, however, paying for quality. I had 1989’s Batman and Joker. The handpainted faces and attention to detail on the accessories were insane!
Grogu is set to ship sometime between January and March of 2022. Sideshow Collectibles is taking pre-orders now.
