Disney Really Dropped the Ball on Baby Yoda Merch
In case you hadn't noticed, "Baby Yoda" has taken over the internet. Yes, this vast global network full of smut, video games, and smutty video games is singularly obsessed with the tiny green alien from the new Star Wars series The Mandalorian. Is he Yoda's son? His clone? Who gives a poodoo, he's cute as hell. Everyone quit paying attention to the sprawling horrors of the real world and look at him holding his widdle cup.
Okay, we see what's happening here. Just like with the Ewoks and BB-8, we're getting another nauseatingly adorable Star Wars character that was created purely for the purpose of selling toys. Except... there aren't any? What?
As further proof that we're all living in some kind of backwards mirror universe, people are actually complaining about a lack of Star Wars toys. Soon after fans fell in love with the character, bootleg Baby Yoda merchandise began popping up all over the web, because there simply weren't any official products available. Some items were pretty cool. Others, a $600 dollar nightmare.
