If I got that in December when I ordered it, I would have been the happiest little boy in England. Why have Disney done this? I’m not economist, but that just seems like terrible business.
Nonetheless, months after Baby Yoda floated onto our screens, Hasbro have announced that they will be releasing a similarly themed Monopoly game, which I imagine will still result in a lot of families hating one-another.
Bizarrely, yet again, this real be released even later than all of the other merchandise, with Monopoly: The Child Edition not available until September.
You can pre-order it now, however, for $19.99 (£15) from Entertainment Earth, which ships internationally.
Each box contains a game board, four cardboard tokens with pawn stands, 18 title deed cards, 16 ‘Bounty Puck cards’, 16 ‘Camtono cards’, 32 plastic hideouts, 12 plastic common houses, 2 dice, a money pack and a guide explaining how to play.
The description reads:
“The classic game is back with a twist through The Force!
“The Child stars in the Star Wars The Mandalorian The Child Edition Monopoly Game, and he’s brought along adventurers from across the galaxy. Take turns looking over intergalactic real estate in this daring mash-up of adventure and finances.
“Imagine traveling around the galaxy with The Child, or affectionately known as ‘Baby Yoda’ by fans. This Monopoly: Star Wars The Child edition board game features themes and artwork inspired by The Mandalorian live-action TV series on Disney Plus“.
Just send me my f*cking Baby Yoda.
I want to enjoy him for, say 10 minutes, and then never pay attention to him again until The Mandalorian season two comes out in a million years.
September. The show come out in like November. Ridiculous.
