Do you feel the (adorable) force? Because it is strong today!

This morning, Luscasfilm started off Toy Fair New York with a product showcase event for new merch inspired by The Mandalorian and the upcoming final season of The Clone Wars

Items on display came from a wide variety of merch makers, including Hasbro, Mattel, Funko, Buffalo Games, LEGO, and many more. Many of products inspired by the adorable Baby Yoda had been announced previously — including Hasbro’s collectibles, Mattel’s vinyl-headed plush, and Rocklove’s necklace.

However, Lucasfilm debuted some brand-new The Child merch to steal our hearts, too — most notably a The Child Animatronic Edition figure (pictured above) from Hasbro. Available now to preorder for $59.99, this interactive version of everyone’s fave space toddler features motorized motions and tons of sound effects inspired by the series.

Other new releases included the first look at Build-a-Bear’s The Child plush, LEGO’s The Mandalorian building set and Brickheadz, and new games from Hasbro, such as Trouble: The Mandalorian Edition and Operation: The Mandalorian Edition.

For The Clone Wars, Lucasfilm’s biggest reveals included a new Mandalorian Darksaber Lightsaber from Hasbro and Ahsoka Tano Mickey Ears designed by Ashley Eckstein (available at Disney Parks).
