As we patiently refresh every single website in the world waiting for that sweetBaby Yoda merchfromThe Mandalorian, we’re excited to exclusively revealanothertoy based on a new character introduced in the series: the Heavy Infantry Mandalorian, as part of Hasbro’s popular Black Series line.
This character was introduced inEpisode III of the show, “The Sin,” so if you haven’t seen it yet and don’t want to know more, stop here.
The Heavy Infantry Mandalorian appears twice in “The Sin.” First, he’s there to mess with the main character over his beskar and drop some M andalorian history facts. Later, he’s there to save the Mandalorian from an angry mob. It’s at that point we see him wielding a massive Gatling gun-type weapon, which felt a littleBaze Malbus-inspired.
The credits list the character as “Paz Vizla,” which is interesting considering the voice coming from the character is (Mandalorianwriter andcreator Jon Favreau. Favreau also voiced a Mandalorian character named Pre Vizsla onStar Wars: The Clone Wars, and while the spellings are different, it feels a little too close to be a coincidence, right? We’ll see how that plays out.
Anyway, now that you know about the character, let’s see the toy. You’re here for the toy and the toy you shall have. Like. Now. Really.
That’s the 6-inch Black Series Heavy Infantry Mandalorian from Hasbro. Retailing for $ 29. 99, it’s a Best Buy exclusive that isavailable for pre-order right now. Here are some more photos of the figure in different poses, so you can click through like a flipbook.
Heavy! Infantry! Mandalorian!
And while we still don’t know when or if aBaby Yodais coming from Hasbro, the factthissemi-secretive character could be released so soon is certainly a good sign for that one.
