So many new sets are begin announced and released it’s hard to keep up! As we discussed previously, the recently announced #75290 LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina is available for LEGO VIP members ahead of its global release on October 1st. But there is also another upcoming LEGO Star Wars set we haven’t yet talked about; the #75318 LEGO Star Wars The Child brick-built sculpture. Although the set won’t be available until the end of October, it can be preordered already at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop. Below is the press-release with all the info.
The LEGO Group recently revealed its latest construction set featuring the beloved character from the Lucasfilm series Star Wars: The Mandalorian. The #75318 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 favorite The Mandalorian stars in 1,073 pieces. Designed for fans aged 10 and over, builders can make the model their own. With a poseable 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 for 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 favorite 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.
The #75318 LEGO Star Wars The Child construction set is now available for pre-order with global release on October 30th directly from LEGO and LEGO retailers. Prices are as follows: 79.99 USD, 99.99 CAD, 69.99 GBP, 79.99 EUR (Euro prices vary by country). To pre-order the set, visit the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.
The #75318 LEGO Star Wars The Child set joins the other brick-built sculptures in the LEGO Star Wars line, like the #75255 LEGO Star Wars Yoda set from last year, which is still available at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.
It’s worth noting that the release of Baby Yoda coincides with the release of the second season of The Mandalorian. If you haven’t seen it already, you can watch the trailer below.
