Three new characters join Lego Star Wars helmet line up

Published on: 4th February 2022

The Luke Skywalker, Din Djarin and Dark Trooper inspired helmet designs make a striking display piece once built.

Lego fans can build the helmets of three Star Wars favourites with Luke Skywalker’s iconic pilot headgear, the headwear of legendary bounty hunter Din Djarin from The Mandalorian and Dark Trooper, with glowing red eyes.

The highly detailed Lego Star Wars Luke Skywalker helmet features a brick-built microphone, translucent red visor elements and nameplate, while the sleek Lego Star Wars reimagining of the Mandalorian’s iconic helmet uses metallic Lego elements to recreate the shine of beskar.

Those enticed by the dark side can show their loyalty to the Imperial Remnant with the Lego Star Wars Dark Trooper helmet. The model recreates the contours of the helmet in Lego style and uses a combination of translucent red Lego elements and white bricks to recreate the Dark Trooper’s shining red eyes.

The new  Lego Star Wars helmet models will launch on 1st March.

The latest designs follow the Lego Star Wars AT-AT set, which was released in November.

This Lego model of the gigantic vehicle, used at the Battle of Hoth in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, features 6,785 pieces, a movable head, spinning guns, adjustable legs and side panels that open to reveal detailed interiors.

The set comes with nine minifigures and accessories, including Luke Skywalker – along with a wire so fans can recreate the scene of him swinging from an AT-AT’s underside in an attempt to thwart the Empire’s attack – General Veers, two AT-AT drivers, a Snowtrooper Commander and four Snowtrooper minifigures, as well as two speeder bikes and an E-Web cannon set of accessories, plus plenty of interactive elements and Easter eggs. Ideal for display or action, the set can also fit an army of Snowtrooper minifigures inside – 40 in total.
