Yup! That’s right! For $79.99 you can have your very own interactive snackin’ Grogu. Pick yours up at Entertainment Earth!

If you’re wondering how to feed the Child, this is the way. The Galactic Snackin’ Grogu animated toy comes with 4 interactive accessories (bowl with tentacles, cookie, shifter knob, and spoon) that, when placed in his hand, he will react to with animations and sound effects. Pretend to feed Grogu (The Child) with the series-inspired accessories and he will react to them with eating, yummy, or yucky sound effects! Kids and fans can pat the Galactic Snackin’ Grogu toy’s head 3 times to activate a 2-handed Force animation, in which he will mimic channeling the Force, inspired by snacking scenes from the Disney+series The Mandalorian.

The Mandalorian is a worldwide phenomenon. Even in Russia the show has passionate fans. A group of fans in Yakutsk (Siberia) was so shocked after the destruction of the ship in the series, that they decided to build their very own Razor Crest. The model is 14 meters (46 ft) long, which means the Russian Razor Crest is roughly in 1:2 scale, almost like the TVC HasLab Razor Crest relative to a TVC figure. The actual ship would be about 26 meters (85 ft) long. The Razor Crest has lights of course, a cockpit and a ramp, so you can access the interior. The model weighs about 1000 kg (2200 lbs) and cost about 8,500 Euro (10,115 USD) to make. 
Would you like to have an (almost) lifesize Razor Crest in your backyard? You’d certainly be the most popular person in your entire neighborhood!
You can check out many more photos and a few videos of the Razor Crest replica on Instagram!

The Mandalorian Remains Funko's Best Selling License

Funko released their Q4 2020 earnings report yesterday. Net sales for the full year are down compared to 2019 for apparent reasons, however, Q4 earnings were up year over year. Also, sales for Funko Pops grew in 2020 by 1% worldwide and 12% in the US. Funko’s domestic US sales were the strongest yet, however the pandemic did affect global sales. But let’s not dwell on the numbers too much. More interesting is what Funko’s bestsellers were.

Hasbro's Full Year Earnings And Star Wars - A Closer Look

Let’s take a somewhat closer look at Hasbro’s earnings report from Monday! What does it actually mean that Star Wars sales grew by 70% (!!!) in 2020? How can Star Wars toy sales even grow so much? It sheds some light on how disappointing sequel trilogy toy sales figures must have been. And how much did HasLab contribute to the 2020 sales growth?
The earnings call was also quite revealing, because Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner (probably inadvertently) officially admits that kids don’t buy action figures! Click through for all the interesting details and a discussion!

Hasbro can be happy

The Mandalorian Receives Nomination For A Golden Globe!

The Mandalorian received a nomination as “Best Television Series (Drama)” for the upcoming Golden Globes earlier today! The other nominees in the category are “The Crown”, “Ozark”, “Ratched” and “Lovecraft Country”.
Last year The Mandalorian was completely overlooked by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association that awards the Golden Globes. The HFPA is an organization of ca. 90 foreign journalists who report on US entertainment news for foreign media.
Do you still care about these award shows? The Golden Globes have somewhat of a shifty reputation in entertainment circles, because a club of fewer than 100 journalists from countries like Russia, India, South Korea, Bangladesh, Austria or Germany decide on who wins what and earning a membership in the organization is somewhat of an intransparent process. But a Golden Globe win is still coveted by most in Hollywood. However, the only memorable thing about last year’s Golden Globes was certainly Ricky Gervais’ roast of Hollywood actors and few probably remember any of the winners. Unfortunately Gervais won’t host the show this year, instead Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will co-host. The Golden Globes will be awarded on February 28th. Will you watch the show to see if The Mandalorian can win?

The Mandalorian Season Finale Tops The Streaming Ratings

I talked about the Nielsen streaming ratings for the USA before. The Mandalorian season 2 fares really well and has been in the top 10 throughout its second season, rising as high as number 3 on the list, behind two Netflix shows. The season 2 finale which featured the return of Luke Skywalker however improves on the already good ratings by becoming the first non Netflix show ever to top Nielsen’s streaming charts. Beating “The Office” in the number 2 spot, which is still the best rated show available on Netflix.

Of course Nielsen only measures ratings in the US, so we don’t know exactly how things are worldwide. Netflix has a lot more subscribers and is available in more countries. However, it is impressive that a Disney+ show can beat any of the shows on Netflix in the US, since Netflix has more subscribers. This is yet another testament to the huge success of The Mandalorian and of course the immense popularity of Luke Skywalker. Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni really are Lucasfilm’s MVPs. Now if only Hasbro capitalized on the success of the show and announced a ton of Mandalorian action figures very soon…

You can find the full list of the top streaming shows on the Hollywood Reporter website.
