What started as an innocent little pun for Star Wars fans has transformed into a celebration of capitalism at its finest: May the 4th…be with you. Get it? Disney wants you to get it. They’ve hijacked that day on the calendar for all time so that you have no choice but to get it. And they are going to partner with every imaginable brand so that everywhere you look there will be a bobblehead of Jar Jar Binks or Baby Yoda face masks. And you are gonna them, arent you? Yeah, you are. Cause you want it. You need it. They’ve got you, my friends.
Cool, anyway. Here are some super awesome toys you can buy to celebrate today. It’s fun!
Star Wars: The Mandalorian The Child Edition Monopoly Game
Yes, that’s the official title. Star Wars: The Mandalorian The Child Edition Monopoly Game. A bunch of people all sat in a room and were like, “yeah that’s the name.” According to Entertainment Earth, “The Child [is] brought along adventurers from across the galaxy. Take turns looking over intergalactic real estate in this daring mash-up of adventure and finances.” A daring mash-up of adventure and finances is exactly what my childhood self used to crave so this sounds great. It doesn’t arrive until September by you can pre-order it now.
Funko Pop! Deluxe Star Wars: Battle at Echo Base Series
These official names, my goodness. Funko is kicking off their upscale Star Wars: Battle at Echo Base Series with this 6″ Wampa figure. It won’t be released until May 16th but you can pre-order on Amazon now.
Star Wars: The Mandalorian The Child Basic 8-Inch Plush
If that 6″ Wampa felt a bit too small, then boy are you in luck. Mattel is releasing this incredibly cute plush toy of The Child (It’s Baby Yoda but Disney isn’t ready to embrace that colloquialism because it’s not actually Baby Yoda. Or is it?). It will tower over that 6″ Wampa at a gargantuan 8″ of pure adorableness. It won’t be released until September but pre-order it now ’cause you know this little guy will fly off the internet shelves.
LEGO Star Wars: The Mandalorian The Razor Crest
Now you can build the coolest-named ship since the Millennium Falcon. This 1,023-piece set includes “The Mandalorian, Greef Karga, Scout Trooper, and the Child, plus an IG-11 LEGO figure, all with cool weapons to role-play exciting battles.” It’s released in September but you can pre-order it now.
