LEGO Star Wars 212th Clone Trooper helmets misprint could be fixed in a couple of months

The LEGO Group says it’s aware of printing issues with 212th Clone Trooper minifigures in LEGO Star Wars 75337 AT-TE Walker, and is currently working on a fix.

The latest iteration of the 212th Clone Trooper minifigure was released in August as part of 75337 AT-TE Walker, but eagle-eyed builders noticed that the printing on the helmet was not quite accurate.

In Star Wars canon and even in the promotional and retail images for the set, the orange arrow on the helmet has a visible tip. On the real-life part, however, the tip disappears under the brow of the helmet. Reddit user Wolfee4421 has now shared a screenshot of an email they received from a customer services agent in Italy, saying that the LEGO Group is aware of the misprint.

“Thank you for sending us the photos,” reads a translation of the email. “We have been told by several fans that the orange decoration on the forehead of the helmet is too low and the tip of the arrow is not complete. Our quality department is gathering as much information as possible to correct the print. Our warehouse will send you replacement helmets shortly.

“Unfortunately, I cannot assure you that they will have completely resolved the problem. If they are still not perfect, we kindly ask you to be patient and request replacement parts in a couple of months to be sure that the department has corrected the printing process.”

This suggests that plans are already underway to rectify the misprinted helmet, even if it might take a couple of months to get into production.

Anyone who’s been wishing that their Clone Trooper had the fully visible print could try taking the same advice of waiting a few months and ordering a fresh helmet, in the hope that the mistake has been remedied by then.

In the meantime, LEGO Star Wars 75337 AT-TE Walker is available now at LEGO.com for £119.99 / $139.99 / €139.99.

    Great way for LEGO to devalue the misprint secondary market. Flood them with misprints. Also, I do not collect misprints and feel they are worthless but know there is a unique market for screwed up prints.
