It started with the 'Yub Nub Mug' at Oga's Cantina, and now I am collecting Sci-fi themed tiki mugs (I got mine at Disneyland for a whole lot less than the $5k the linked eBay seller thinks it's worth!)
This is the way to get a Baby Yoda minifig.
The 1000+ piece LEGO Razor Crest can be ordered in advance of its September debut.
Baby Yoda brought the internet together, its adorableness somehow overpowering the divisive animosity that has otherwise ruled over this pre-post-apocalyptic era.
And now the Army's branded the Child onto the cannon of an M1 Abrams tank.
What better way to use up the "brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness" you won in the cosmic lottery than by frittering it away on assembling a 500-piece jigsaw puzzle of Baby Yoda, better known to Star Track purists as "The Child?"
Funko's Baby Yoda looks amazingly cute.
I do not know where I am going to put all these damn things.
Although you won't find any official toys of "the Child" from Disney's The Mandalorian in stores yet, you can decorate your tree with this authorized papercraft version of Baby Yoda in his floating bassinet. All you need is scissors, glue, and a healthy amount of some patience to get all the fiddly bits stuck together. — Read the rest
There's a scene in the fourth episode of The Mandalorian where the unnamed child (aka Baby Yoda) is literally pushing Mando's buttons, well, the buttons on his ship anyway. Since it aired, the internet has been doing its thing — imagining Baby Yoda is playing with the ship's radio. — Read the rest
I am a big fan of seeing what happens when a super-powerful force user is raised by a mass murderer.
It's frankly shocking that in more than 40 years since Yoda first debuted on the big screen, no one has asked the anarcho-linguist Noam Chomsky to explain the Jedi's syntactical idiosyncrasies. But now that Baby Yoda has stolen everyone's heart, someone has finally taken him to task. — Read the rest
Various official Baby Yoda toys will be available in a few months, but anyone with access to a 3D printer can print their own right now. Christopher Frieze has posted one version for free download. It looks great as a tree topper:

Artist Allison Hoffman, aka Crafty is Cool, is an absolute master of pop culture amigurimi ("a portmanteau of the Japanese words ami, meaning 'crocheted or knitted,' and nuigurumi, meaning 'stuffed doll'"). She can crochet like nobody's business and each of her pieces are a work of art (previously). — Read the rest
After a lot of trying and hardship, Jennifer and Jeff attained pregnancy — with twins! To celebrate, they put together this wicked little Star Wars mashup as an announcement of the occasion. Sheer genius — and enjoy the spare time to produce stuff like this while you can, J&J! — Read the rest
If you're looking for a way to turn a baby into a major unlicensed cuton emitter (well beyond the threshold set by the Federal Cuteness Commission) this Hallowe'en, then you could do worse than to whip up a set of these crocheted Yoda ears, as one crafty parent did. — Read the rest
Here are the delightfully self-aware (but a little too long for an intro) lyrics:

Here's a man in an Beskar suit
Who's a walking armory
Bounty hunting to just make do
In the gig economy
His name is on the show
But we know who the star is
This puppet who's adorable and green
Turned out to be a tiny cash machine
Through the dustiest worlds he rides
Kicking ass and slinging guns
Like a mystery cowboy type
Hate to say, it's all been done
He's just Clint Eastwood with
A much sweatier hat
These references like No Name Trilogy
Go on and on like CVS receipts
John Wayne as well but that's a deeper one
His grandson does a lot of Mando's stunts (fun!)
If you pay for a Disney+ subscription, watch it over at a pal's house, use someone else's log-in credentials or torrent, you're likely already aware: the second season of The Mandalorian will be out there and ready to watch on October 30th. — Read the rest
Ludwig Göransson goes in front of the camera in this moody video of him performing his theme song for The Mandalorian in the studio and out in nature.
It's not a good week to be Prince Andrew. (Was it ever?)
Billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein's alleged under-age sex ring "madam" has stabbed him in the back, spilling the beans about the Prince's romps with sex slaves.
He's under guard by his own security team, with orders from the Queen to stop him fleeing the country. — Read the rest
