The Mandalorian: Funko Pop Leak About The Child?
Did an image of a new Star Wars bobblehead leak a plot point for The Mandalorian, Season 2
Okay, if you are leak averse, turn away. Go away. Click away.
Still here? Good.
Last chance. Seriously.
Moving on. So, The Child…
Some eagle-eyed folks might just have picked up on a plot point connected to The Child (better known as Baby Yoda) in the upcoming season of The Mandalorian.
Season 2 debuts on October 30. However, we might just have a little inkling of what might be coming thanks to a picture of some new Funko Pops.
Pop Goes The Leak?
Funko POP News has released several new images of upcoming Funko Pop! vinyl figures Cara Dune, a Gamorrean Monster, and the Mythrol on Twitter. But the biggest mystery following the release of the promotional merch photos revolves around Baby Yoda’s figure which comes with an egg canister, something that was obviously not in the featured in the first season of The Mandalorian.
The site cited the tweet below:
