3 New LEGO Star Wars Helmet Sets Are Up for Preorder
Other a pair of extremely popular LEGO flower sets (great gift idea for Valentine's Day, btw), February isn't shaping up to be a big month for LEGO releases. Thankfully, March may pick up the pace, as the company has just put three new Star Wars helmet LEGO sets up for preorder. They're Princess Leia's Boushh helmet, Captain Rex's helmet, and Clone Commander Cody's helmet.
They all look great. They're £69.99 each and are set to release March 1.

The two sets from Star Wars: The Clone Wars are excellent additions to the existing line of Star Wars helmet LEGO sets.
The Captain Rex helmet set (75349) looks phenomenal. It's comprised of 854 pieces and, including the base, stands eight inches high five inches wide, and five inches deep. Like all of these Star Wars helmet sets, it comes with a nameplate and is intended for display.
The Clone Commander Cody helmet set (75350) looks distinct thanks to its orange features. It's made up of 766 pieces and is also eight inches tall. It's five inches wide and five and a half inches deep.
If you're more of a Return of the Jedi fan, you might want to grab the set based on the Boushh helmet Princess Leia wears when she arrives at Jaba's palace to save Han (set 75351). At six and a half inches tall, it's a little shorter than the others. It's four and a half inches wide and five and a half deep.
Like the others, it comes with a nameplate and has the 18+ age suggestion, meaning it's intended for adults.
In this case, that age suggestion doesn't reflect the build difficulty. It's more the designers' intent for the set. These LEGO sets are are intended for display, rather than play.
Kids probably wouldn't have much fun with these once they're built. For more display sets, check out our coverage of LEGO Star Wars dioramas. Chris Reed is a deals expert and commerce editor for IGN.
