Disney Really Screwed the Pooch With the Baby Yoda Toys

The breakout star of The Mandalorian was a complete surprise to everyone. The second Baby Yoda popped up at the end of the first episode, it changed everyone's expectations of what the show was and what it was going to be about going forward. The biggest surprise of all, however, is not that Disney kept the character's existence a secret, but that the company is completely unprepared for the demand for merchandise.
