It was only a matter of time before Internet sensation Baby Yoda, officially known as & # 39; the child & # 39; from Disney & # 39; & # 39; The Mandalorian & # 39 ;, was packaged for retail. Although it is very late.

Although not much is known about the diminutive, 50-year-old character linked to the wise "Star Wars" Jedi master, toy versions of the breakout star inexplicably did not go on sale prior to the premiere of "The Mandalorian & # 39; s "last month.

The official & # 39; Kind & # 39; doll from the mini series & # 39; Star Wars & # 39; & # 39; The Mandalorian & # 39 ;.

(Mattel)

But fans of Jon Favreau & # 39; s live-action mini series were overjoyed on Tuesday when an 11-inch vinyl-and-plush Mattel doll appeared for presale on the Walmart website for $ 24.99. It has large ears, insect eyes, green skin and robes.

However, their excitement was quickly suppressed with the power of a light sword when it was revealed that the dolls would not arrive until May 2020. Not only that, the item that was requested disappeared shortly after it appeared on the Walmart website, making it even less likely to appear under Christmas trees this holiday season.

“A little too early, our pre-orders were launched. Sorry we are. The opportunity to re-order from Walmart.com customers soon will have, "said the retailer in a statement to The Times, evoking Yoda's speech pattern.

A statement from Mattel said that the doll will actually be sent in February and is available for pre-order on the official Disney website, Disney.com and through other retailers. Bobblehead versions of the character are also available for pre-order, but clothing and merchandise with its cute resemblance are already there for the taking.

Hasbro said it won't launch any of his Baby Yoda-inspired merchandise until 2020, which is surprising because it means that Disney won't cash in the big demand for the products before the end of the quarter. (Don't be afraid, there are still plenty of intergalactic merchandise linked to the release of "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" this month.)

In the meantime, many unofficial versions of the doll, horrific bootlegs and insanely expensive Etsy knockoffs have filled the Baby Yoda vacuum cleaner in recent weeks. Several of them have become the stuff of memes and nightmares.

Here's a look at some of the best (and worst) baby Yoda dolls online, thanks to the good people on Twitter.
