Baby Yoda Is the Best Pre-Selling Funko Pop Ever
Funko makes hundreds of Pops — maybe thousands at this point. They have made Pops of some of the biggest sports and entertainment figures in history. You pretty much name it, they’ve made it into a little collectible with a giant head. But apparently one Pop stands above the rest — and it hasn’t even been released yet.
That would be the Pop of “The Child,” better known to his legions of fans as Baby Yoda from The Mandalorian. There are two different Pops of Baby Yoda; a standard sized one and a big’un. And according to this tweet from Funko, he’s the company’s best pre-seller in history:
It just goes to show that there are upsides to making the public wait. Lucasfilm was so focused on preserving the secrets of Baby Yoda that they didn’t have the usual compliment of merchandise available at the launch of The Mandalorian. That stoked demand even higher than it already would have been for the cutest widdle alien in Star Wars history. Both Baby Yoda Pops are currently sold out on Amazon, but you might be able to find it available at other online retailers. It’s expected to officially go on sale in May.
