Here’s our first look at LEGO’s new Mandalorian and X-Wing pilot buildable helmets

Today, we’re getting our first look at two of the upcoming LEGO Star Wars buildable helmets. Delivering two iconic characters from a galaxy far, far away, fans will soon be able to assemble busts of the Mandalorian himself alongside Luke Skywalker’s signature Red Five X-Wing Pilot Helmet in LEGO form. Head below for all of the details.

Last year, 9to5Toys reported on the next lineup of buildable LEGO Star Wars helmets, and today thanks to Amazon.Pl, we’re getting a first official look at two of them. Marking the first of the lineup to debut for 2022, there are a pair of builds hailing from different properties in a galaxy far far away.

First up, we have what will likely be the fan-favorite of the new creations, the Mandalorian’s helmet. Stacking up to 584 pieces, the upcoming set is comprised mainly of light grey bricks to pull off the bounty hunter’s iconic look. Fortunately, there are some chrome accents that really elevate the buildable helmet, even if there is less of the shiny silver finish than I would have liked to see from the LEGO Group. It largely resembles that of the Boba Fett Helmet from 2020, and fittingly so since they’re both Mandalorians!

Returning to the Original Trilogy, we’re also getting Luke Skywalker’s iconic Red Five X-Wing Pilot helmet as the latest LEGO Star Wars set. This one stacks up to 675 pieces and takes a much more unique approach than the Mandalorian helmet. The most distinct aspect will be the transparent visor on the front of the kit, but there’s also some new printed elements to pull off the signature look of the Rebel Alliance accessory.

Each of the helmets will seemingly launch with a $59.99 price point, though we’re waiting for an official confirmation from the LEGO Group on its latest Star Wars sets. And as we’ve seen in the past, you’ll find a display base built into the kits with a printed name plate to round out the package. There’s still no telling exactly when we’ll see these builds debut, though our money is currently on March 1. That puts them at an earlier release than our previous reports of a May the 4th launch.

Today’s unveil officially brings the total number of LEGO Star Wars buildable helmets up to seven. There’s no word yet on if the previously-reported on AT-AT Driver helmet will be released at all.

9to5Toys’ Take:

Today’s new LEGO Star Wars Buildable Helmet unveils are something of a mixed bag. Let’s start with the good. I am loving the X-Wing Pilot and just how awesome it came out. The visor section is way better than I could have expected and really makes the build pop compared to the others we’ve seen in the past. As for the Mandalorian helmet, I can’t same I am surprised to see the LEGO Group avoid an all-chrome build, though I am disappointed nonetheless.
