A new report says that Hasbro’s supply chain has been interrupted because of the coronavirus, leading at least one expert to predict that Baby Yoda toy deliveries to the United States might be delayed. But there have been more concrete repercussions than that.

But they also created an opportunity for independent sellers to fulfill the public’s clamoring for all things Baby Yoda until more official merchandise could be mass-produced.
A new report says Disney is now targeting popular Etsy shops and sending takedown notices for Baby Yoda-related items. Read More »

Say what you will about the overall quality of the Disney+ series The Mandalorian (I have plenty of gripes, but I’ll bite my tongue for now), but one thing we can all agree on is that the first live-action Star Wars show looks expensive as hell. And it turns out that Baby Yoda, First of His Name, King of the Internet, Subject of Memes, Breaker of Hearts, and Lord of Cuteness, has an extremely high price tag.
