Among The Mandalorian’s many influences are Westerns and samurai movies. This collectible from Bandai celebrates the series’ Eastern influences, envisioning Din Djarin as a rōnin, a wandering warrior with no lord or master. The 6.7″ tall figure includes a real cloth cape, rifle, blaster, and a katana.

Holding Out for a (Jedi) Hero

Holding Out for a (Jedi) Hero

The last episode of season two of The Mandalorian was truly amazing, and Luke’s return was truly epic. Bugzkilla synced up the sequence with Bonnie Tyler’s ’80s classic Holding Out for a Hero, and it suits the scene perfectly. They followed it up with My Heart Will Go On for Din and Grogu’s teary-eyed farewell.

South Korea-based artist Drawholic wows us with a colored-pencil portrait of Din Djarin and Grogu. The time-lapse video lets us observe the entire process from start to finish, as the rough outlines give way to color, shading, and a background that makes the image pop off of the page.

Sculpting Boba Fett

Sculpting Boba Fett

Sculptor Steven Richter created this intricate half-sized bust of actor Temuera Morrison as Boba Fett. The sculpt is based on appearance in The Mandalorian. The helmet and armor started as a 3D models from Do3D, and was finished with a classic pre-paintjob look.

LEGO Mandalorian Stop-Motion

This is the way… to make a LEGO Star Wars animation. Forrest Whaley created this action-packed short film featuring Din Djarin as he puts his helmet back on to pursue a valuable bounty. Rather than just featuring characters from a galaxy far, far away, it takes place in a world populated by all kinds of LEGO minifigs.

The Mandalorian Playing Cards

Premium playing card brand Theory11 teamed up with Lucasfilm for another official Star Wars-inspired deck.

Of course, Grogu is the Ace of Spades.

Carol of the Mandalorian

Carol of the Mandalorian

We might not be getting a Mandalorian holiday special any time soon, but if we ever do, we already have the theme song. AtinPiano’s mashup of Ludwig Göransson’s epic Mando score with the Christmas classic Carol of the Bells would fill the bill perfectly. They previously gave The Imperial March the holiday treatment.

Kaboom Percussion: The Mandalorian

Kaboom Percussion: The Mandalorian

Ludwig Göransson’s score for The Mandalorian is the perfect blend of the Wild West with the mystique of a galaxy far, far away. Now enjoy as Kaboom Percussion does justice to the opening and closing theme from the series with a great cover version played on a dozen instruments.

Every Episode of The Mandalorian

Every Episode of The Mandalorian

While we’ve genuinely enjoyed every chapter of The Mandalorian, some of the episodes feel more like side missions in an RPG rather than driving the main storyline forward. Close Personal Acquaintance pokes fun at the sometimes repetitive plot structure of the hit Star Wars series. Also, Baby Yoda’s real name is Greendog.

Raising Baby Yoda

Raising Baby Yoda

It might seem like zooming around the galaxy with Baby Yoda is all action and adventure. The Mandalorian’s Din Djarin explains how much work it is to take care of a 50-year-old poop machine in this clip that we’re sure many parents can relate to. A fun and charming fan parody from the guys at The Warp Zone.

Creating the Razor Crest

Creating the Razor Crest

Season two of The Mandalorian has been quite a thrill so far, though the Razor Crest has seen more than its share of abuse along the way. ILM looks back at the creation of Mando’s ship, from its earliest conceptual designs through its production as both a digital object and an intricate real-world model for in-camera shots.

Toymaker Beast Kingdom just made The Mandalorian as adorable as Baby Yoda.

One of the many things we love about The Mandalorian is how they show concept art in the closing credits. This 256-page hardcover book lets you give some of these images a more permanent home. The book is packed with art and sketches, along with interviews with the cast, crew, and creative team behind the Disney+ series.

This adorable Baby Yoda Desktop Light will look great sitting on your desk or bookshelf and will bring a bit of the Light Side into your life on days when you’re feeling like giving in to the Dark Side of the Force. Rather than running on Midi-chlorians, this cute but powerful being gets its energy from a couple of AAA batteries.

Green Child O’ Mine

Green Child O’ Mine

Novelty band The Merkins celebrate the second season of The Mandalorian with a parody of the Guns N’ Roses track Sweet Child O’ Mine, with the lyrics rewritten to be about everyone’s favorite 50-year-old child, Baby Yoda. The lead vocals are spot-on thanks to special guest singer Alvi Robinson of the rock band The L.A. Maybe.

If The Mandalorian Was an Anime

If The Mandalorian Was an Anime

The Mandalorian is a pretty damned fine series as-is. But it’s still fun to envision variants of the show, like this fun anime style opening put together by Malec, Martial Coulon, Antoine Bertrand, KronoMuzik, and Kenny dozo. Kawaii Baby Yoda is just as adorable as his live-action inspiration.

Honest The Mandalorian Trailer

The Mandalorian is returning to Disney+ on 10.30.2020, so it only makes sense that Screen Junkies would seize upon the chance to make an Honest Trailer for the hit series. Despite being such an excellent show, they still found plenty of reasons to poke fun at its characters and storylines.

Life-size LEGO Baby Yoda

With Season 2 of The Mandalorian fast approaching, LEGO enlisted the help of three builders to create a replica of The Child (aka Baby Yoda) out of nearly 15,000 bricks. The 22″ tall model took over 119 hours to complete, and also includes the little green dude’s floating bassinet.

Hot Toys IG-11

Hot Toys IG-11

One of our favorite characters to emerge from The Mandalorian is IG-11. The robotic bounty hunter didn’t last long but the Taika Waititi-voiced droid certainly left a lasting impression. Hot Toys‘ sixth-scale figure measures 14″ tall, has 29 points of articulation, and has a light-up mechanical head. His waist can even spin 360º.

Teen Yoda

Teen Yoda

16 years have passed and Baby Yoda is no longer the adorable child he was playing with the controls aboard the Razor Crest. He’s now an angsty, sulking goth teenager… and Mando has a real dad bod. See how this scenario plays out in AOK’s animated parody.

The Child Animatronic

The high tech bassinet is sadly not included.
