Thank you for reading Research Droids Reviews: Season 12!
JTA reader Ty checks in to share his Mattel The Child plush find at his local Austin, TX Walmart. Thanks for the report, Ty! Let us know in the comments other places this can be found.
It’s now been confirmed that the upcoming Mafex Beskar armor Mandalorian action figure will not come with a jetpack. However, the figure comes with Baby Yoda aka “The Child” instead. Check out the photo of the figure below (make sure to view the larger version). You can see here where the Mafex figure excels, extremely lifelike and fluid posing is possible, helped by the fact that the proportions are perfect. This is the figure you need if you want a true to life 1/12 scale Mandalorian! Click through for one more photo!
This week’s edition of TRT is purposely posted late because I had a package just delivered and I wanted to share it so bad I took the time to take it out for a small photo shoot. I also finished a custom Captain Vaughn from last week’s Clone Wars episode! Click here to check out the photos from this last week in Star Wars.
EmpireToyShop has the new Mattel 11” Child “Baby Yoda” in stock and shipping this week. Very limited quantities available so Limit to 1 per customer.
We reported about rumored SHF figures from The Mandalorian a few days ago. Some details were still scarce, but now S.H.Figuarts have officially announced the new figures, yes, you read right, figures, “Baby Yoda” is indeed a single release and NOT an accessory. Also, very important, it seems the Beskar armor Mandalorian has a normal sized helmet, and doesn’t suffer from pinhead syndrome after all! Click through for all the photos and some details!
Pop culture magazine “Exclumagazine” posted a photo of two new SH Figuarts Star Wars figures that may or may not come later this year. A Beskar armor Mandalorian and the “Child” aka Baby Yoda (which would most likely be an accessory). Please take this with a heavy dosage of salt. Nothing is confirmed, but the Beskar Mandalorian looks legit, he even has the SHF pinhead syndrome that many of their helmeted characters suffer from. There has been a conspicuous absence of announcements from SH Figuarts in recent times, so some new figure reveals would be welcome. Would you add the SHF version of a Beskar armor Mandalorian to your collection? Or would you rather wait for the inevitable Hasbro version?

A photo of the Black Series Baby Yoda, officially “The Child”, has appeared on Twitter. And in true leaker guild fashion the photo was taken by a potato camera. So you can barely see anything, but it appears to be the real deal! Thanks to Steven U for the alert!

We approached Juan with the difficult task of capturing The Child, and it’s safe to say he’s managed to bring The Child to life. Despite everything our precious fifty year old child has been through, Juan perfectly portrays The Child’s wonder and innocence in this portrait piece, and the expression melts our hearts!
