The debate waged as to whether this little green guy was somehow Yoda or some other being from his race. I think we all knew it couldn’t be the Jedi Master, but it was fun to argue about it in true Star Wars fashion!
But now we know he is a separate character, initially called The Child, and now named Grogu. I found this collectible at Wal-Mart. It features The Child in his signature Hover Carrier:
Grogu didn’t get his name until well into Season Two of The Mandalorian, so this piece of merchandise still labeled him as The Child.
This is part of The Bounty Collection (Series 2) and features six distinct figures, all variations on costumes or situations The Child was put in, mostly from Season 1 of the series.
Nothing but cute until you realize that he’ll eat anything, living or dead, without a second thought!
This piece has some nice detailing and is quite heavy for its size. So this isn’t a cheap offering in quality but is a deal with a cost of only around $10.00 CAN.
We have Hasbro to thank for the manufacture of this wonderful toy!
The Mandalorian is the first live-action series in the Star Wars franchise developed specifically for television. The story begins five years after the events of Return of the Jedi (1983). The Child has certainly become the breakout character of the series!
