Mere days after the second episode of The Mandalorian season 2 premiered on Disney+, Lucasfilm has already turned the installment’s infamous eggs into a toy. This time last year, only die-hard Star Wars fans might have been excited about The Mandalorian‘s premiere, though it didn’t take long for the series to win over just about everyone familiar with the galaxy far, far away. In telling the story of a lone bounty hunter (Pedro Pascal) who comes to protect and care for a powerful Child (Baby Yoda), The Mandalorian proved to be a huge success for Disney+. As a result, season 2 is one of the most anticipated shows to emerge this year.

The Mandalorian‘s season 2 premiere kicked things off in epic fashion, but this weekend’s episode 2, “Chapter 10: The Passenger,” slowed things down a bit. In an attempt to gain more information about other Mandalorians, Mando agrees to transport a character simply named Frog Lady (Misty Rosas) to a new planet so she can reunite with her husband and fertilize her unhatched eggs. The eggs in particular have become a controversial point from “The Passenger,” because the adorable Baby Yoda ended up eating more than a few.
Now that Baby Yoda’s interest in Frog Lady’s eggs is a major talking point among audiences, Lucasfilm has jumped on the opportunity to score some bucks off it. Per StarWars.com, a Funko Pop! of Baby Yoda pursuing Frog Lady’s eggs has already been created. The item should be available for purchase later today for fans eager commemorate this strange, polarizing moment forever. Check it out down below.
Baby Yoda’s admirers on the internet are torn on how to feel about his (frankly disturbing) eating habits. Some defend the little tyke as an alien who has already demonstrated his tendency to eat virtually anything, while others feel this is an inexcusable act from Baby Yoda. Regardless of how one feels about it, though, it might be safe to say that all will be forgiven when Baby Yoda does something cute in this week’s episode 3. Remember: He is just a child.
Elsewhere in “The Passenger,” Mando, Baby Yoda, and the Frog Lady had to contend with some terrifying ice spiders, and the group briefly found themselves stranded on a planet they definitely weren’t aiming for. Compared to The Mandalorian’s season 2 premiere, the second episode was definitely a step back in terms of pacing, and fans might be hoping for a return to the premiere’s action with the third episode. It’s still early on in the season, and there’s still plenty of time for more thrills and Star Wars Easter eggs. Preferably, though, The Mandalorian will lay off on the egg-eating going forward.
