With the highly-anticipated second season of The Mandalorian just around the corner, LEGO has celebrated its upcoming release in the best fashion it knows how: by building a life-sized Baby Yoda aka The Child in his very own levitating crib.
The expert build consists of a whopping 14,588 bricks, taking three master builders a staggering 119 hours to craft. While this particular model hasn’t been produced for sale, Baby Yoda fans will still have various options from the toy company, including the character’s 1,037-piece standalone model, a cuter BrickHeadz set along with Mando himself, and a tiny version of him included in the recent Razor Crest set.
As for season two of the show, a new TV spot has given fans a closer look at what’s to come, including the return of Gina Carano’s Cara Dune, Carl Weathers’ Greef Karga, and Giancarlo Esposito’s Moff Gideon wielding a menacing darksaber. Previous reports have also revealed the appearance of Boba Fett, played the original prequel’s Jango Fett actor Temuera Morrison, a new character portrayed by Timothy Olyphant, and involvement from Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Waititi.
Watch the video of Baby Yoda’s build down below while you wait for The Mandalorian to return for its second season October 30 on Disney+.
