Images recently emerged of two new LEGO Star Wars sets – 75276 Stormtrooper Helmet and 75277 Boba Fett Helmet – while Bricklink confirmed 75274 TIE Fighter Pilot Helmet. Now, a press release has been shared with more information and images.
This new series of sets is aimed at adult fans, with an 18+ advisory on the box. Each box builds a replica of a helmet from Star Wars between 18cm and 21cm tall, with a display stand and unique display plaque. Other themes will be visited too, with 76165 Iron Man Helmet on the way too.
Pre-orders are open now in the USA and will open around the world tomorrow, with the sets priced at $59.99 in the USA and €59.99 in Europe. They will be released on April 19.
“The Star Wars galaxy continues to provide us with endless opportunities to bring scenes and characters from the movies to life using LEGO bricks,” says LEGO Star Wars Design Director Jens Kronvold Frederiksen. “The new LEGO Star Wars Helmets provide a challenging building experience but only use existing LEGO pieces to recreate the iconic contours and colours of headgear, showing what is possible with the LEGO System in Play.”
“Helmets have been a staple in Star Wars iconography since the very beginning, helping to shape the designs of some of the most notable characters in the galaxy,” says Derek Stothard, Vice President of Licensing at Lucasfilm. “So, it only made sense to immortalise those helmets in LEGO brick form. It’s always fun to work with the LEGO Group to create new, engaging and mentally stimulating products for builders around the globe, and we’re so excited to bring these LEGO Star Wars helmet building kits, and brand-new packaging, to our fans.”
