SH Figuarts have released promotional images for their 6 inch scale The Child figure from the Disney+ The Mandalorian series
The Child comes with a sculpted body and soft goods robes. He has three head options - one with eyes open and ears up, a second with ears back and down, and the third with his eyes closed as he focuses on using the force. He comes with his cup as an accessory
Where this figure has real value - over the Hasbro version at least - is the inclusion of his hover cot, including top cover. This sits on a clear plastic flight stand. It also comes with a soft goods blanket.
And for even more value the set includes the baby carrier that IG-11 wears in the season finale. The Child sits into this and it can then be worn by the SH Figuarts upcoming IG-11 figure (we expect details on this soon).
The Child will be released in September 2020 along with the Beskar Armour Mandalorian. The set will cost 3850 Yen, that will put him around £30 in the UK, which is a solid price for the set which will be able to crossover with Black Series collectors.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
