In a bundle just as rare as little Grogu, Microsoft announced two sweepstakes for The Mandalorian-themed Xbox Series S|X consoles and accessories.
An Xbox Wire blog post announced Xbox’s Lucasfilm collaboration featuring a package of Grogu goodies celebrating The Mandalorian’s Season 3 debut. The Star Wars gaming gear is an extra-limited edition set, only available by entering the sweepstakes on Twitter, with more Mandalorian-themed accessories up for grabs through Microsoft Rewards.
Beginning today and wrapping up on May 11, The Mandalorian fans can enter through a retweet with #TheMandalorianXboxSweepstakes of the Xbox official contest post. The custom Xbox Series X and Series S consoles feature the show’s beloved Star Wars dad, Din Djardin, and the adorable Baby Yoda – or Grogu. Sticking to the theme, Xbox is also offering a tiny hoodie for the consoles’ bright green controller, complete with Grogu’s fluffy trim and all.
Anyone in Xbox-supported locations can enter the Twitter sweepstakes, but the Xbox Wire post notes its hosting an additional drawing for a human-sized Pram bundle open to US account holders only. The prize includes the same consoles, but they’re packaged with the giant Grogu pod that features all sorts of bells and whistles with flashy lights, cupholders, and massage cushions.

The Mandalorian Season 3 kicks off today on Disney+ with the first of eight episodes, and we’ve already got a list of burning questions from the debut’s biggest reveals. After comments on cameos from some Star Wars characters we thought long-perished, The Mandalorian co-creator Jon Favreau only adds to those rampant fan theories and speculation.
Grogu and Mando’s latest adventure should be available to Disney+ subscribers now, with new episodes airing on Wednesdays. As for The Mandalorian’s premiere, the 8/10 IGN review summarized:
“The show goes back to the beginning to demonstrate how much has changed even if its core dynamic remains the same, laying solid groundwork for a host of new conflicts for the Mandalorian and his foundling to face together.”
