Brick Fanatics first shared word of this Baby Yoda set, LEGO Star Wars 75318 The Child, back in June. While a few lucky fans could buy it in Luxembourg in August, today it is available for everyone to pre-order from LEGO.com.
75318 The Child arrives to coincide with the second season of Star Wars: The Mandalorian – pre-orders will arrive when the set is released on October 30. It is priced at £69.99 in the UK, $79.99 in the USA and €77.97 in Germany.
The 1,073 piece set measures almost 20cm tall and includes a tiny figure of the Child and a buildable display plaque.
“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.”
