This is the way… LEGO gets another $120 from you – Official details of The Child

Today LEGO has released official details of The Child. We’ve already seen some pics of this one but no we know everything we need to know.

The Child is made up of 1073 pieces and includes a minifigure scale version of the super cute 50 year old as well as an information display stand.

With the Mandalorian Season 2 starting soon I think this one is going to disappear quicker than the Razor Crest jumping to lightspeed.

The set will cost $119.99 here in Australia and will be available from here as a pre-order from tonight, with the official release date set as October 30.

THE LEGO GROUP REVEALS LEGO® STAR WARS™ THE CHILD CONSTRUCTION SET

Today, the LEGO Group reveals its latest construction set featuring the beloved character from the Lucasfilm series Star Wars: The Mandalorian™. The LEGO® Star Wars™ The Child construction set is inspired by the small-in-size but powerful-in-charisma character, the Child (or Baby Yoda as fans have affectionately dubbed the character), from the series. The building set will be available globally from October 30th, with pre-orders starting today as part of the Mando Mondays program announcement from Disney and Lucasfilm.

Measuring just under 20cm (7.8 inches) in height, builders can experience the fun of building a set inspired by one of their favourite The Mandalorian™ stars in 1,073 pieces. Designed for fans aged 10 and over, builders can make the model their own. With a posable head, movable ears and an adjustable mouth, fans can choose from a range of the Child’s famous expressions when putting their finished model on display.

“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” says Michael Lee Stockwell, Design Manager, LEGO® Star Wars™. “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 favourite toy of the Child as seen in the series.”
The construction set comes with an information plaque, which includes the Child’s height and age, and a LEGO® Star Wars™ Minifigure of the Child to complete a charming display.

75318 LEGO® Star Wars™ The Child construction set will be available for pre-order from 21st September and then globally from 30th October, directly via LEGO.com, LEGO Stores and other retailers.

    I’ve resisted buying Star Wars sets for twenty years. Resistance is futile. Sold.
