Builders looking to assemble their own purple version of a LEGO Classic Space astronaut received a much-needed boost recently, with air tanks in that specific colour popping up at Pick a Brick online. The item was joined by a new Luke Skywalker hairpiece from 75352 Emperor’s Throne Room Diorama, which could prove to be a handy upgrade for any existing versions of the character you may have in your minifigure collection.
Now yet another must-have element has been added to the Pick a Brick line-up, with the LEGO Classic Space purple helmet finally appearing as part of the online selection of pieces. Priced at just 30p each, the minifigure accessory is currently listed as being out of stock but should hopefully be available soon. The LEGO Classic Space purple air tanks have already been on the platform for a few weeks and have been in and out of stock a few times in that period.
The purple (or Medium Lilac) part regularly sells out through Pick a Brick, so we suspect the helmet will probably follow a similar pattern. Still, both elements are worth waiting for and are certainly much cheaper to obtain via the online store than through BrickLink in the UK, where prices start at £1.23 per piece for the air tanks.
The LEGO Classic Space purple helmet is only currently available so far in 80111 Lunar New Year Parade, although at least two of the pieces will be included in the upcoming 40608 Halloween Fun VIP Add-On Pack, which should most likely be available sometime in October.
The helmet and air tanks are Standard parts on Pick a Brick, so will arrive with you within 28 business days. Note that you’ll also need to order at least £10 of such elements to avoid a £5 service fee, so be sure to stock up on a few extra items while shopping online.
