I'm amazed Frozen 2 doesn't have Baby Olaf.
Man Favreau cashing in that goodwill.Now fans are beating down the door for Baby Yoda toys and merch, and irate to find there’s not very much. At least right now. Favreau said he wanted to hold off on the deluge of consumer products, lest the existence of the Child leak early.
Sources close to the merchandising unit of Walt Disney tell Vanity Fair that plans are underway to bring more Baby Yoda products to stores in the weeks ahead, but for now the main item available is this T-shirt featuring concept art of the lovable creature.
You expect artistic integrity for merchandise? lmaoThe merch in the OP look like absolute shit. While it would be unreasonable to expect toys or figures to magically materialize when they hadn't been planned, they certainly could have had someone come up with something interesting to slap on a t-shirt, cups, etc. in the two weeks since the launch. This is just creatively bankrupt and cheap.
So basically Disney/Favreau wanted to keep Baby Yoda a secret and not spoil it with merch so it is coming in 2020. Then Disney saw they dropped the ball not capitalizing on this and opened a CafeExpress shop.
Most people want a plushy which isn't plastic?
I saw this on the Toys that Made Us show. And I thought it was genius. Then it turned out... it was.
