Earlier today we brought you a hands-on review of the newest LEGO Star Wars set from The Mandalorian, 75318 The Child, but here are the official images from LEGO. Better known by the fan nickname of Baby Yoda, the character stands about 8 inches tall and has a poseable head, ears, and mouth. Featuring 1,073 pieces, the set will be available for pre-order starting October 21, and is slated to be available to purchase on October 30th, coinciding with The Mandalorian’s second season debut on Disney+. The Child will retail for US $79.99 | CAN $99.99 | UK £69.99.
Be sure to read our full, hands-on review for an in-depth look at the set, but here are the rest of the official images from LEGO and the official press release.
As with previous buildable figures like 75240 Porg, The Child includes a UCS-style info placard and a minifigure-scale character. The tiny Baby Yoda has only previously appeared in a single set, The Razor Crest.
The Child can make a variety of expressions with the poseable features. He also includes the gearshift knob from the Razor Crest.

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 favourite 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 each and every brick. We even included authentic details like the gearstick knob – a favourite 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.
