The Mandalorian continues to be a phenomenon, and in the lead-up to its season two premiere on Disney+, The Walt Disney Co. and Lucasfilm have revealed plans for Mando Mondays.
Officially set to begin on Oct. 26 following an inaugural Mando Monday today, the nine-week global event will feature new toys, games, consumer products, and publishing titles tied into the popular Star Wars spinoff, it’s titular bounty hunter, Din Djarin, and The Child (Baby Yoda).
An initial assortment of new products was unveiled today, including toys and collectibles from Hasbro, LEGO, Funko, and others. Retail partners offering exclusive products and characters include Walmart, Target, Amazon, Best Buy, and GameStop.
“When The Mandalorian debuted last year on Disney+, the show became an instant phenomenon, with fans of all ages expressing excitement for products related to its iconic characters — particularly The Child,” says Kareem Daniel, president, Disney Consumer Products, Games, and Publishing. “This fall, as the world continues to watch the narrative unfold, we will further bring this unique Star Wars story to life through a must-have selection of toys, books, comics, digital content, and more.”
Star Wars: The Black Series Credit Collection is a new extension of the popular Black Series line of 6-inch scale action figures. The Credit Collection features new versions of popular characters on collectible cardbacks with art and deco inspired by the concept art seen during the end credits of each episode of The Mandalorian. Additionally, each figure includes a collectible Imperial Credit accessory. The exclusives include The Mandalorian (Amazon), a Heavy Infantry Mandalorian (Best Buy), Cara Dune (Target), IG-11 (GameStop) and an Imperial Death Trooper (Amazon).
Following a successful run of “Carbonized” Black Series figures last year, Hasbro’s Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Carbonized Collection brings the special metallic finish to the 3.75-inch scale with four new figures available exclusively at Walmart. The Mandalorian, Cara Dune, Remnant Stormtrooper, and Imperial Death Trooper will be available on vintage-inspired cardbacks.
Hasbro is also expanding its Star Wars Wars The Bounty Collection with a second series of 2.2-inch Child collectibles. The company will also release Monopoly Star Wars: The Mandalorian edition this fall. Available at most major retailers, the themed version of the game includes tokens inspired by The Mandalorian, Cara Dune, IG-11, Kuiil, and The Child.
LEGO will release a buildable version of The Child on Nov. 11 while Funko will release The Child in his carrier as a Pop! Vinyl form on Oct. 26 alongside new Mandalorian and Gamorrean Fighter figures. Additional licensees releasing new products tied to the series include FiGPiN, Polaroid, and Diamond Select Toys.
The new season of The Mandalorian premieres Oct. 30 on Disney+.
