“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,” Michael Lee Stockwell, design manager of Lego Star Wars, said in a statement.

“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 favorite toy of the Child, as seen in the series,” Stockwell said.

The set includes 1,073 pieces and is recommended for builders that are at least 10 years of age. The assembled Baby Yoda will stand roughly 7.8 inches (20 centimeters) tall and includes a posable head, ears that move and an adjustable mouth, allowing you to pick your favorite expressions.

The new set will launch on the same day as the premiere of Season 2 of “The Mandalorian” on Disney Plus, Oct. 30. The series is set five years after the events of “The Return of the Jedi” (1983) and follows the adventure of bounty hunter Din Djarin and “The Child.” Previews of Season 2 appear to show that Baby Yoda will make a return to our screens.

More live-action “Star Wars” spin-off TV shows should be coming soon, including one based on Cassian Andor (Diego Luna) from “Rogue One” (2016) and another following Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi.
