After being spotted in a store shelf in Luxemburg earlier this month, the LEGO Group has finally made it official and has now listed the LEGO Star Wars The Child (75318) for pre-order over at LEGO Shop@Home.
Just in time before the Disney+ hit series The Mandalorian streams again for its 2nd season, the LEGO Star Wars The Child (75318) will also be available starting October 30 with LEGO’s online shopping portal now taking pre-orders. The set features a buildable and articulated brick version of Baby Yoda and is expected to retail for $80 coming in at 1,073 pieces. And as a sort of a cherry on top to sweeten the deal, this set also comes with a minifigure version of The Child previously found only in the Razor Crest (75292) set.
Read on for TLG’s official press release of this set together with its product description, and a handful of high-res images. You may also click on the affiliate link below if you wish to pre-order as early as now.
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 favorite 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 every brick. We even included authentic details like the gearstick knob – a favorite 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.
1,073 pieces | $79.99 | Available starting October 30, 2020
