There are now five buildable helmets in the LEGO Star Wars theme’s 18+ line-up, with the two latest entries set to be released on April 26. And it probably hasn’t escaped your attention that both of this year’s additions stick to the villainous precedent set by 75274 TIE Fighter Pilot Helmet, 75276 Stormtrooper Helmet and 75277 Boba Fett Helmet in 2020.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing, though – partly because of course we needed a Darth Vader helmet in this style, but also because it means that the complete collection just looks really neat lined up on a shelf, as you can see in the images above and below.
In fact, if the LEGO Group decides to finally break away from the original trilogy next year, we’re probably going to need at least three helmets in one go to create a similarly co-ordinated display. For now, though, we can revel in the fact that we’ve got almost the entire spread of Imperial buckets to build amongst these first five releases, along with the galaxy’s most venerable bounty hunter.
You’ll be able to complete your own LEGO Star Wars Helmet Collection next month with 75304 Darth Vader Helmet and 75305 Scout Trooper Helmet. And if you haven’t yet caught up on last year’s releases, don’t worry: they’re all still available at LEGO.com.
