LEGO reveals its Dark Side with the launch of its LEGO Star Wars Helmets collection

The LEGO Group has unveiled three new LEGO Star Wars construction sets for adult builders to recreate some of the most iconic designs from the Star Wars galaxy, including two new additions to the LEGO Star Wars helmet collection.

First revealed last year, the helmet collection features a bust inspired by Darth Vader and a helmet designed in the likeness of a Scout Trooper. Making up today’s launch is the new model honouring the Imperial Probe Droid.

The range has been designed with the LEGO’s community of adult builders in mind, allowing fans to build, display, and pay homage to the Dark Lord of the Sith. The LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Helmet is an 834 brick build, the Scout Trooper helmet is a 471 brick set, and the LEGO Star Wars Imperial Probe Droid weighs in at 638 pieces.

“Some of our favourite Star Wars characters have the most profound, intimidating on-screen presences, despite the fact that you can’t see their facial expressions,” said 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 recognise, 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.

The sets will be priced between £44.99 to £59.99 and will be available for pre-order from March 25th, 2021 from LEGO.com and other retailers, and on general sale globally from April 26th.
