With Mandalorian only 5 episodes into the series so far “Baby Yoda” has stolen our hearts as the cutest little being on the new series on Disney plus. Ever since his first appearance in Episode 1 people were scratching their head on the existance of this mysterios creature. Little is known about this toddler where based on story so far we learn it’s actually 40 years old and it can use the force. Is this an offspring of yoda himself? We may never know but we know this!
Ever since episode 1 and especially since episode 4 merchandise of sprouted out like weeds and they weren’t even disney licensed. There were so much merch being sold on Ebay and Amazon it’s estimated to be worth around $2.7 million and growing! It seems that fans didn’t want to wait any longer to have a “baby yoda” figurine or some sort of item with the mysterious creature on it. Items such as a plush doll, figurine, calendar, and many more items came out before the official merchandise is even available.
Hopefully Disney can make up for the loses. While most of these items were fan made and not exact copies of the total look it seems the people behind the items are safe for now. Time will tell if we start seeing lawsuits. Either way “baby yoda” is the new thing and what will ever take it’s spot?
