LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader and Scout Trooper helmet release date and prices confirmed

The LEGO Group has confirmed the release date and prices for the two new additions to its LEGO Star Wars Helmet Collection, 75304 Darth Vader Helmet and 75305 Scout Trooper Helmet.

Both sets were originally revealed by Walmart earlier this week, several days ahead of the LEGO Group’s official embargo. The US retailer only debuted the first images and piece counts for the sculpts, however, leaving us in the dark over when we’ll be able to buy them – and how much they’ll cost.

We can now share that both helmets will go on sale worldwide on April 26, while pre-orders will apparently begin from today. It’s not clear at the time of writing whether you’ll be able to pre-order from LEGO.com regardless of where you are in the world, or whether – as with 76199 Carnage – those pre-orders will be US only, but we’ll keep you updated.

While all three of last year’s LEGO Star Wars helmets came in at £54.99 / $59.99 / €59.99, this year’s additions don’t fall into the same bracket, predominantly by virtue of their piece counts. 75304 Darth Vader Helmet is the largest entry in this collection to date, ringing in at 834 parts, and will subsequently retail for £59.99 / $69.99 / €69.99.

75305 Scout Trooper Helmet, on the other hand, sits at the opposite end of the spectrum: it’s the smallest LEGO Star Wars helmet yet by piece count, with just 471 elements in the box. As a result, you’ll only need to hand over £44.99 / $49.99 / €49.99 to get your hands on it next month.

If you still need to catch up on the current LEGO Star Wars Helmet Collection, all three sets – including 75274 TIE Fighter Pilot Helmet, 75276 Stormtrooper Helmet and 75277 Boba Fett Helmet ­– are available now at LEGO.com.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
