Grogu and IG-12 from Star Wars: The Mandalorian were a beloved team-up in Season 3. IG-11 was originally a bounty hunter droid that was reprogrammed to protect the Child. The stoic, yet humorous droid sacrificed itself to ensure the escape and survival of Grogu, Dinn Djarin, and company at the end of Season 1.

Two seasons later, their ally, Greef Karga (Carl Weathers) had become High Magistrate on the planet, Nevarro. He gifted the young foundling with the new IG-12 to operate and communicate with others as an incentive for Grogu and Din (Pedro Pascal) to stay as marshals. The gift has a ‘yes/no’ function to the exo-suit, which led to much hilarity and proved useful in their fight against the relentless villain, Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito).

This popular duo will now be immortalized with their own Slideshow Collectible, designed by Hot Toys. The fan-favorite bounty droid will have a highly-detailed and authentic likeness as a 14-inch (36 cm) figure. The expertly crafted mechanical head will include an LED light-up function. In addition, the body will have 28 points of articulation with pipe and wire detailing. It will also have a detailed cockpit with moveable controls.

The standard Collector’s Edition ($264) will have four prominent features:

  • a sixth scale (4.5 cm) collectible Grogu that is specifically designed for the cockpit.
  • One sixth scale Anzellan Droidsmith collectible (aka alien species of Babu Frik) with two interchangeable right arms.
  • One snack and one fruit
  • A sound effect feature that allows IG-12 to say: ‘Yes’ and ‘No.’
