Model makers and collectable store Sideshow put a Baby Yoda Star Wars model on pre-order yesterday, and it caused the site to crash.
Games Radar has the story, detailing how The Mandalorian model managed to bring the site down straight after the announcement. It didn’t last long, though, by the time Games Radar hit publish, the company was back on its feet and signing up people interested in life-sized hugs with the green fuzzball.
The model, known as “The Child”, costs $350 and is due out between August and October 2020. It’s made from fabric, plastic and resin and is barely 16.5″ high and only 13″ wide.
The Child comes on a ship deck base which seems fitting. I’m sure the curious youngling probably stole it.
