These are the first helmets based on prequel trilogy-era characters in the collection, which has so far drawn exclusively from the original trilogy and The Mandalorian. And they’re also the first based on characters featured most heavily in The Clone Wars, which was first depicted on screens 20 years ago in Genndy Tartakosvksy’s original animated series.
While 75350 Clone Commander Cody Helmet is based on the character’s Phase I helmet, 75349 Captain Rex Helmet is instead based on the more iconic Phase II design. It’s a clear point of distinction and differentiation between the two helmets, and gives collectors a clear reason to buy both: you won’t just be building the same gear twice in two different colour schemes.
“For two decades, the Clone Wars has shaped a hugely important story in the history of the Star Wars saga, and we feel immensely proud to be bringing two of its key players to life for fans around the world,” said Jens Kronvold Frederiksen, Design Lead for LEGO Star Wars.
“These rewarding, relaxing builds should be able to take pride of place for any LEGO Star Wars collector and offer a new way to create, display and enjoy these iconic characters who played such a pivotal role in many stories that we know and love from the galaxy far, far away…”
Both 75349 Captain Rex Helmet and 75350 Clone Commander Cody Helmet will be available from March 1, 2023, for £59.99 / $69.99 / €69.99 each. Check out all the details on these two new additions to the LEGO Star Wars Helmet Collection below.
