Hasbro’s The Child (AKA Baby Yoda)

Today, Hasbro finally put up for pre-sale what many collectors have been patiently waiting for; a Baby Yoda in 6″ scale. The Black Series will, in May of 2020, add “The Child” to the popular line. The figure will be priced like the Porg accessory set from The Last Jedi and therefore we are assuming it will be in a smaller package and not a part of the normal numbered line. In addition, Hasbro announced The Bounty Collection which includes a set of 2.2″ cutesy versions of the breakout star from The Mandalorian, an electronic plush doll and a 6.5″ figure (which appears to something separate from Hasbro’s typical 12″ Hero line of figures).

One scale obviously missing from today’s announcement at this moment was a Baby Yoda in 3 3/4″ scale. We refuse to believe a Child figure won’t appear in 3 3/4″ scale and at present, we are counting on him being a pack-in with an upgraded The Vintage Collection figure in the future. Time will tell and for the record, we are holding our breath.

We received two press releases from Hasbro announcing this highly anticipated release.
