When LEGO announced the first wave of Star Wars helmets many of our readers may have been scratching their heads over the 18+ age rating and the fancy black packaging as LEGO had only recently begun building their adult portfolio. Also notably absent from this line of iconic helmets was perhaps the most iconic helmet of all, the Dark Lord of the Sith himself, Darth Vader. Well, LEGO has corrected this with wave 2 of the Helmets Collection. It includes the ominous visage of 75304 Darth Vader, along with 75305 Scout Trooper, the Stormtrooper variant first seen on the forest moon of Endor, the lightly armored Scout Trooper. The new helmets include 834 and 471 piece respectively, and have price tags of US $69.99 | CAN $99.99 | UK £59.99 (Darth Vader) and US $49.99 | CAN $69.99 | UK £44.99 (Scout Trooper). Both sets will be available for pre-order from March 25th, 2021 from LEGO.com and other retailers, and on general sale globally from April 26th.
