It’s hard to tell where we’re at with Baby Yoda these days. First he was a phenomenon, a meme gone viral. A character that became bigger than The Mandalorian, the show he featured on. He might be the most popular character in the Star Wars universe right now.

They cost $39.99 and can check them out at Fun.
