The Mandalorian premiered its third season on Disney+ this week, and in honor of the occasion, Microsoft is giving away a pair of special edition Xbox consoles. The consoles feature the show’s titular characters, Din Djarin, and baby Grogu.

Participants can obtain this extra-limited edition of Star Wars gaming gear by joining the Twitter competition in honor of the upcoming Season 3 premiere of The Mandalorian.

Din Djarin, the titular Mandalorian, is depicted on the larger Xbox Series X console, complete with his signature armor, while the alien baby Grogu is featured on the smaller Xbox Series S console, complete with his distinctive green and black coloring.

The bundle also contains a custom-made Grogu controller clothed in its little hoodie. According to Twitter posts, the Grogu-themed Xbox Series S is autographed by Pedro Pascal, Jon Favreau and show co-creator Dave Filoni.

From March 1 to May 11, The Mandalorian fans can participate by retweeting the Xbox official Sweepstakes post with the hashtag #TheMandalorianXboxSweepstakes. These sweepstakes are open to anyone in a region where Xbox is available.

Microsoft also offers fans to win a life-sized copy of Grogu’s hover pram. However, the Xbox Wire specifies that only U.S. account holders are eligible to win this human-sized pram combo.

These Pram XL Sweepstakes have the same game consoles, but they’re bundled with a massive Grogu pod, complete with LED lights, massage cushions and also holders for controllers and headphones.

The Pram Sweepstakes is open from March 16 through May 11, and the official rules, including the free entry option, can be found at Microsoft Rewards.
