Hasbro continues to up their Baby Yoda game with the release of their animatronic Galactic Snackin’ Grogu! Hasbro saw a 70% increase in their Star Wars sales this past year due to the success of their Mandalorian-themed toys. This new Child figure is set to be released later this year closer to the release of Season 3 of The Mandalorian. Now whether or not Grogu will even appear in the next chapter of the series is yet to be known so this figure might just fill the void that many fans may have with the absence of the “star” of the show.
Hasbro has provided us the official images and press release:
