It was no secret that The Mandalorian was heavily inspired by the Lone Wolf and Cub manga and Kenji Misumi’s 1972 film. The similarities were not subtle, but taking that story and applying it to the Star Wars universe worked in a way none of us expected.
So, of course, Mando and baby Yoda would get their own Meisho Movie Realization figures. Mando is the ronin, Grogu is the cub he protects, and the resulting figures are quite spectacular. The figure set is $139.99 and can be pre-ordered from Entertainment Earth for a March 2022 release.
The Mandalorian returns to the Meisho Movie Realization series with a completely new sculpt suit and armor inspired by the beskar armor from the Disney+ Series. Included with this figure is an in-scale figure of Grogu who can be seated in a pram inspired by wooden pushcarts from the Samurai era of Japanese history. The Mandalorian rifle and blaster are included as is his jetpack that he received at the end of the first season of the show. The Star Wars The Mandalorian Ronin Mandalorian and Grogu Beskar Armor Meisho Movie Realization Action Figure includes 2x pairs of optional hands, Rifle, Jet pack, Blaster, Sword, Scabbard, Grogu, Pram, and Push cart. Measures about 7 3/10-inches tall.
I’m digging Grogu’s hair in this figure. It makes him look even more adorable than usual. Mando’s beskar samurai armor is also striking. The Meisho Movie Star Wars action figures already on the market are great collectibles, and it’s nice to see the line continuing.
I doubt we’ll be seeing a Cara Dune figure in this line, but you never know. While Darth Vader, Boba Fett, stormtroopers, and others have made their debuts in the series, right only Kylo Ren and Captain Phasma are the only ones somewhat easily available for purchase. Click here to see those two.
