The Star Wars franchise and Lego have formed a strong relationship over the years, with Star Wars Legos ranking not just as some of the best-selling Lego sets of all time, but as some of the best-selling toys of all time, period!
But this synergistic team really outdid themselves when they came out with the uber collectible Lego Star Wars helmet line, a steadily expanding series of iconic built-to-display Star Wars helmets aimed at older builders.
Launched in 2020, Lego has been drip-feeding installments at a rate of 2 to 3 builds a year, with older helmets gradually falling out of production and skyrocketing in value.
But in this post, no Lego Star Wars helmet is too obscure, as I’m going to guide you through each and every build released thus far.
A Brief Overview Of Lego Star Wars Helmets
Each box arrives with the plastic Lego bricks required to assemble the helmet and stand.
You also receive a custom tile with the name of the helmet owner etched, and to make disassembly as easy as possible, a brick separator tool is included as standard.
Want To Collect Them All? Here’s How Many You’ll Need
As it stands, eleven helmets have been released, and Lego is showing no signs of stopping any time soon. The latest builds are
- Lego Captain Rex Helmet 75349
- Lego Commander Cody Helmet 75350
- Lego Princess Leia (Boushh) Helmet 75351
Some of the early releases are remarkably tricky to find these days, so if you’re just starting your collection now, you may run into a few roadblocks, but stick at it, and your persistence will pay off.
Are The Lego Star Wars Helmets Big?
As cool as it would be to have some life-size Lego Star Wars helmets, this collection is downsized significantly, which is actually kind of a good thing, otherwise you’d need an entire room to house them.
Fully constructed, helmets measure between 7 and 8.5” tall, stand included, which is about as high as an iPad Mini is long, making it pretty easy to find a good spot to show them off on a shelf.
Are These Legos For Adults?
There are a couple of reasons why you’ll see an 18+ age recommendation on the boxes of these helmets.
Firstly, they’re quite complex, and a child will almost certainly struggle to build them correctly.
Secondly, they’re collector’s sets, and collector status generally means something needs to be handled and owned responsibly, which, needless to say, isn’t a kid’s forte.
Thirdly, there isn’t much “play value” in a fully constructed helmet, which limits its appeal to a younger audience. And finally, the company simply anticipates an older demographic for these sets.
Every Lego Star Wars Helmet (In Order Of Release)
Lego Star Wars TIE Fighter Helmet 75274
The first helmet in this beloved series was a real doozy… the TIE Fighter pilot helmet. Almost entirely black, with lots of complex front-facing pieces, it’s a tricky build, but boy is it pretty when you finish it.
Two Imperial emblems stationed on either side of the forehead (just like the real deal), give it an extra shot of pizzazz, and it even arrives with the flexible gas transfer tubes that you see the pilots using in the movies.
Lego Star Wars Stormtrooper Helmet 75276
The image of this helmet has reached cultural ubiquity since the release of the original trilogy, and even though Stormtrooper armor seems to be completely ineffective in the movies, the “buckethead” style of their helmets is still super cool.
Lego Star Wars Boba Fett Helmet 75277
Next up is the beskar mask of the ferocious bounty hunter Boba Fett. Resistant to both blaster fire and lightsaber strikes, this helmet is one of the most impressive in the original trilogy, but it’s also one of the standout designs in this Lego series too.
Featuring Fett’s signature flip-down rangefinder, this is one of few helmets in the series to contain a moving part, and the vibrant colors make it a real eye-grabber.
Lego Star Wars
Darth Vader Helmet 75304
Here it is… the mask that transformed Anakin Skywalker into the most feared entity in both the Star Wars universe and our own. This samurai-inspired, skull-like helmet is the quintessential piece of Star Wars imagery, and no Lego helmet collection will ever truly be complete without it.
Hilariously, the folks over at Lego botched the copy on the top of the packaging, meaning every single box reads “Dark Vader” — Damn autocorrect! But make no mistake, these are genuine products.
Lego Star Wars Scout Trooper Helmet 75305
Often seen speeding about on, well… speeders, Scout Troopers are a special regiment of Stormtrooper trained to head out on reconnaissance missions, and their helmets are tailored to suit this task — Note the aviator-esque visor that grants superior vision.
With fewer pieces than any other helmet in the series thus far, this is the best option for novice builders. Once upon a time, this also meant that it was the most affordable, but as it’s gotten rarer since its release, the price has appreciated somewhat.
Lego Star Wars Dark Trooper Helmet 75305
Introduced in The Mandalorian series, the Dark Troopers are experimental battle droids programmed for one reason and one reason only… kicking butt, and they do it well!
With menacing narrow red eyes, these techno-ninja style helmets are almost as fear-inducing as the mighty Vader’s.
Lego Star Wars The Mandalorian Helmet 75328
The Mandalorian almost never takes his beskar helmet off, and who could blame him — This thing is amazing! Thankfully, the Lego version is also insanely cool, featuring lacquered brick sections to provide that signature metallic shine.
Designers should be particularly praised for their choice to use two different gray tones throughout, cleverly adding a sense of depth, as if light is hitting one side of the helmet, while the other side is shrouded in shadow.
Lego Star Wars
Luke Skywalker (Red Five) Helmet 75327
With the addition of Luke’s Red Five helmet, the rebels make their first appearance in the series, and they arrive in style! Featuring a brick-built visor and chin strap, the attention to detail here is phenomenal.
You’ll also build the moveable microphone through which Luke reports “Red Five standing by”.
Lego Star Wars Captain Rex Helmet 75349
Captain of the 501st Clone Legion and second in command to Anakin Skywalker, Rex is a dauntless warrior, and his signature helmet is a thing of beauty.
Featuring his distinct hawk eye markings, blue embellishments around the visor, kill tally details, and a moveable rangefinder, it’s one of the best side character helmets in the franchise.
Lego Star Wars Commander Cody Helmet 75350
From Anakin’s second-in-command to Obi-Wan’s, we arrive at Commander Cody, a Clone Marshal Commander famed for leading the renowned subunit of the 7th Sky Corps, the 212th Attack Battalion, during the Clone Wars.
His helmet features striking orange embellishments and a unique visor.
Lego Star Wars Princess Leia (Boushh) Helmet 75351
While it originally belonged to bounty hunter Boushh, Princess Leia donned his infamous helmet to impersonate him and infiltrate Jabba the Hutt’s compound in order to free one Mr. Han Solo.
It’s one of the most unique and detailed builds of the lot, making it a challenge even for experienced builders.
There you have it — All 11 Lego Star Wars helmets in the series so far.
There are some fantastic pieces here, and there are still some amazing bits of headgear to give the Lego makeover, which means there will likely be more awesome designs released in the near future.
