LEGO just announced three new Star Wars helmets for 2022, and this year it has a little something for everyone. LEGO has you covered whether you love Star WarsDark Troopers, or The Mandalorian. This is the way.
In 2021, we got Darth Vader and Storm Trooper helmets, along with a fun new Imperial Droid, but for 2022, LEGO stepped things up a notch. According to Brickset, all three LEGO helmets are up for pre-order today and start shipping next month.
Whether you prefer to join the dark side or want to try and save the galaxy, these three new helmets will complement any LEGO Star Wars collection. The company is offering an iconic Luke Skywalker helmet, a Dark Trooper, and, as expected, The Mandalorian helmet complete with the metallic sheen of Beskar armor.
The Mandalorian LEGO Helmet
The Mandalorian Helmet perfectly captures the metallic glow of Mando’s Beskar armor. Thanks to several different shades of gray LEGO managed to recreate the contours of his helmet. The 584-piece set should be easy enough for anyone to build, but these sets are designed for adults. And while these look awesome, unfortunately, the Mandalorian helmet (and all three mentioned today) are only about 7-inches tall, and a little over 4-inches wide and deep. So you can not wear one, even if you want to.
Pay tribute to the iconic bounty hunter with this build along with the included brick-built stand and nameplate. All three helmets are now available to pre-order and ship on March 1st, 2022.
Luke Skywalker LEGO Helmet
Each new LEGO Star Wars helmet has unique elements or clear LEGO bricks to complete the look, including Luke’s. The force is strong with this one, delivering builders 675 brick pieces to finish the Luke Skywalker (Red Five) helmet. You’ll love the brick-built microphone and interior padding, giving it an authentic look, not to mention that stylish translucent red visor.
Dark Trooper LEGO Helmet
While I’m more of a Mandalorian fan myself, this Star Wars Dark Trooper LEGO helmet is hot. The way the helmet is tilted slightly forward in a mean and menacing stance, glaring at you with those evil red eyes, is fantastic. For this build, LEGO delivered an iconic helmet with 693-pieces in the same black sheen as the real troopers from The Mandalorian season 2. And just like every helmet announced today, we’re getting unique translucent red bricks for the eyes.
Once you’re finished building this, put together the brick-built display stand and nameplate, and put it on a shelf for everyone to appreciate. Get the Dark Trooper, or any of the three, starting March 1st.
