LEGO Star Wars Helmets: 75343 Dark Trooper, 75328 The Mandalorian, & 75327 Luke Skywalker (Red Five) [Review]

The Helmets Series has been a massive success since its introduction, capturing iconic characters across Star Wars, Marvel, and DC. While the troopers and TIE pilot may excite some, Boba Fett and Darth Vader proved to be the great lures for dual fans of LEGO and Star Wars, especially those who grew up with the original trilogy. After all, the set’s 18+ rating was definitely targeted at the more…tenured fans. Given how many helmets have permeated the slew of related works though, the designers have a wealth of inspiration for their next models. Much like the fans, the designers must have felt like something was missing. We got plenty of “bad guys” but where were the “hero” helmets? Well, two out of three new helmets recently announced by LEGO may debatably balance things out:
75343 Dark Trooper | 693 pcs | US $59.99 | CAN $79.99 | UK £54.99
75328 The Mandalorian | 584 pcs | US $59.99 | CAN $79.99 | UK £54.99
75327 Luke Skywalker (Red Five) | 675 pcs | US $59.99 | CAN $79.99 | UK £54.99

A few days ago, we got our first look at two of the upcoming LEGO Star Wars helmets, 75327 Luke Skywalker (Red Five) and 75328 The Mandalorian. Today LEGO is taking the wraps off the final set for the Spring 2022 Helmets Collection wave, 75343 Dark Trooper Helmet from The Mandalorian.

Like the other helmets, the black Imperial helmet will retail for US $59.99 | CAN $79.99 | UK £54.99 when it’s available starting March 1. It includes 693 pieces.

Two new LEGO Star Wars helmets revealed: 75327 Luke Skywalker & 75328 The Mandalorian [News]

This morning Amazon.pl revealed two new LEGO Star Wars sets from the ongoing helmets series, 75327 Luke Skywalker (Red Five) and 75328 The Mandalorian. Luke’s helmet has 675 pieces, while the Mandalorian’s features 584. While there’s no price listed for the sets yet, expect them to run about $59.99 each, in line with previous helmets from the series. We expect that they will be available starting March 1. Like the other buildable helmets, each set comes with a display stand and printed plate with the character’s name. Interestingly, the Mandalorian’s helmet appears to differ a bit in construction from Boba Fett’s helmet that was released in 2020.

LEGO Star Wars adds 75304 Darth Vader, 75305 Scout Trooper, and 750306 Imperial Probe Droid for spring 2021 [News]

Thanks to retail giant Walmart, we’re getting a first look at three new Star Wars construction sets for adults. LEGO will continue their line of Star Wars Helmets with Darth Vader and the Scout Trooper. The Helmets Collection started last year with Boba Fett, the Stormtrooper, and the TIE Fighter Pilot.

Next to the two helmets, the Imperial Probe Droid will get the LEGO treatment once more. The droid has been made in minifigure scale quite a few times before, but this time it consists of a lot more than 25 pieces and will be in a much larger scale, making it a UCS-style droid similar to 75187 BB-8.

There’s no word yet on precisely when the sets will be released or the prices. These sets vary a bit in size from the previous wave, so we’re not sure if LEGO will price them at the same $59.99 USD.

LEGO Star Wars helmets: 75274 TIE Pilot, 75276 Stormtrooper, & 75277 Boba Fett [Review]

Twenty-one years and around 700 sets after its inception, the LEGO Star Wars theme has done something new. It has introduced LEGO sets with an age rating of 18+. No, they’re not risque models of Princess Leia, merely display models clearly targeting adult collectors who want display items for their mantle. Few LEGO themes have embraced adult collectors the way the Star Wars line has. With the multi-generational, massive fanbase for Star Wars, this isn’t surprising, since now more than 40 years after the original film there are certainly more Star Wars fans over the age of 18 than under it. And this focus on adult fans isn’t new. Back in 2001, LEGO introduced the Ultimate Collector Series, kicking off not just with an X-wing and TIE Interceptor, but also an 1800-piece bust of Darth Maul. Now LEGO has introduced a trio of new mantle decorations in the form of three iconic helmets from the Star Wars universe:
75274 TIE Pilot Helmet | 724 pcs | US $59.99 | CAN $79.99 | UK £54.99
75276 Stormtrooper Helmet | 647 pcs | US $59.99 | CAN $79.99 | UK £54.99
75277 Boba Fett Helmet | 625 | US $59.99 | CAN $79.99 | UK £54.99

All three of the Star Wars helmets are available now, and run for the same price with around 600-700 pieces. So what makes these new sets worthy of an 18+ rating? Spoiler alert: nothing. However, that aside, let’s see how the sets stack up.
