“Some of our favorite Star Wars characters have the most profound, intimidating on-screen presences, despite the fact that you can’t see their facial expressions,” says Jens Kronvold Frederiksen, Creative Director, LEGO Star Wars. “In recreating the sinister helmets of Darth Vader and the Scout Trooper, it was important to capture the details and essential features that people around the world will recognize, even those who aren’t too familiar with the Star Wars galaxy. I think all three display sets are extremely cool and I hope fans will enjoy the building process and be thrilled to display them once complete.”
Passionate builders can enjoy some time to relax as they take on these complex creative challenges, recreating every authentic detail in true LEGO style. When done with the build, the models can be displayed with a bespoke plaque to put the final touch that will make the perfect desk ornament or centerpiece in the home for Star Wars fans.
All three sets are available for pre-order starting today, March 25th, from the Online LEGO Shop and other retailers, and on general sale globally from April 26th. The two new helmet sets join the collection of LEGO Star Wars helmets from last year; the #75274 LEGO Star Wars TIE Fighter Pilot Helmet, the #75276 LEGO Star Wars Stormtrooper Helmet, and the #75277 LEGO Star Wars Boba Fett Helmet. You can still find all three of them at the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Wow. They look awesome together! I’m now itching to collect them all! 😀
Guys, I was watching the designer video for the space shuttle and there is a life size red rebel helmet in the background. Some people speculate that it is going to be a set! What do you think?
I saw that too! But it looked more dark red than red to me.
Ha! Now I see it! I wonder who’s helmet it is. I don’t remember any of the pilots having red or dark red helmet.
Maybe it’s not from Star Wars at all. Maybe it’s something to do with NASA or even military pilot helmets?
What’s going on at the neck section of Vader’s helmet? I like the rest of it, but that section seems odd for some reason.
It may be from an upcoming SW film and not related to anything we have seen before. Also, are you guys sure it’s lifesize? It seems smaller. A lifesize helmet would be dope!
Sorry! I put my comment in the wrong place. I was referring to the discussion about the helmet in the space shuttle video. Sorry.
That does look odd. The neck section should be smooth. I’m not sure why it’s jagged like that. The face of the helmet looks great though.
I think that’s just the angle. In this review, you can see the chin and neck are much smoother: https://youtu.be/yIz0F4szbj0
Neat. They look good together. Too bad all the cool helmets are on the dark side. Haha.
Great collection! I wonder what they are going to do next. Right now we have black, white, black, white, and the only colorful one is Boba Fett. 😀
