Four new LEGO Star Wars sets are due to arrive on April 19 – 75278 D-O, 75276 Stormtrooper Helmet, 75277 Boba Fett Helmet and 75274 TIE Fighter Pilot Helmet. UK retailer Asda has started selling them early, along with a new Wonder Woman set.
The sets are in stock and ready to dispatch, but those who enjoy May the Fourth promotions may want to wait for LEGO.com to get them. Typically, offers available for the May weekend include double VIP points and gift with purchase exclusives.
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.
75278 D-O uses 519 pieces and is priced at £64.97 by Asda. In Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, D-0 is discovered by Rey and her friends as they are on the trail of Emperor Palpatine. The little droid is voiced by the film’s director, J J Abrams.
