There was a leak a couple of days ago but I figured I’d wait a couple of days to post the high resolution images of the next two sets in the LEGO Star Wars Helmet series.
Captain Rex (75349) and Commander Cody (75350) will join the ranks of Darth Vader and Boba Fett as their protective headgear are immortalised in LEGO bricks.
The recommended retail price for these are €69.99 / USD$69.99 / £59.99 and will be available on March 1st at all LEGO Brand and Certified Stores around the world.
While these are quite nicely designed, I was never a huge fan of the helmet series. Felt that they should have been bigger in size so that there could be more details but it seems like these are still popular enough to churn out more.
Maybe we’ll get to see a General Grevious helmet/bust in the future.
Clone your own icons with new LEGO® Star Wars™ helmet building sets – marking 20 years of the Clone Wars
Two heroes of the Clone Wars, Captain Rex and Clone Commander Cody, receive the LEGO® Star Wars Helmet treatment with new, highly detailed, build-to-display building set models
Billund, January 26, 2023: Revealed ahead of Nuremberg Toy Fair, the LEGO Group has announced two new additions to its popular series of Star Wars helmet building sets, both linked to the 20th anniversary of the Clone Wars – those events in the Star Wars galaxy which kicked off in the 2002 film Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and continued in the animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
LEGO® Star Wars fans will soon be able to join the Grand Army of the Republic by building the instantly recognisable helmet models of Captain Rex and Clone Commander Cody, two iconic heroes from the Clone Wars as they arrive in two new sets for fans, available from March 1st.
The 854-piece set based on Captain Rex’s helmet captures the iconic blue trim and range-finder of the 501st battalion’s clone captain, one of the most famous characters in the animated series The Clone Wars and second-in-command to Jedi General Anakin Skywalker.
Clone Commander Cody’s helmet is recreated in a new 766-piece set, bringing to life the striking orange detailing of the helmet that appeared prominently in many episodes of The Clone Wars, with Clone Commander Cody standing alongside Obi-Wan Kenobi as another commanding officer of the 212th clone battalion.
Each set is highly detailed and features printed nameplates of each character, making them perfect collectables for any LEGO Star Wars fan and the perfect build-to-display models to mark this milestone anniversary for the Clone Wars.
“For two decades, the Clone Wars has shaped a hugely important story in the history of the Star Wars saga, and we feel immensely proud to be bringing two of its key players to life for fans around the world,” said Jens Kronvold Frederiksen, Design Lead for LEGO Star Wars.
The 854-piece LEGO Star Wars– Captain Rex and 766-piece LEGO Star Wars– Clone Commander Cody helmet building sets are available from March 1st from LEGO.com and LEGO retailers priced at €69.99 / $69.99 / £59.99. Each set has a recommended building age of 18+.
