LEGO extends Star Wars offer for its adult fans

New build-to-display models include Boba Fett, Stormtrooper and TIE Fighter Pilot helmets.

The LEGO Group has unveiled a new addition to its popular Star Wars range.

Fans can now show their loyalty to the Empire with new collectable LEGO Star Wars Boba Fett Helment, LEGO Star Wars Stormtrooper Helmet and LEGO Star Wars TIE Fighter Pilot Helmer build-to-display models.

Inspired by the villains from the film franchise, the new models are available to pre-order now and will officially launch on April 19.

“The Star Wars galaxy continues to provide us with endless opportunities to bring scenes and characters from the movies to life using LEGO bricks,” said Jens Kronvold Frederiksen, LEGO Star Wars design director.

Derek Stothard, vp of licensing at Lucasfilm, added: “Helmets have been a staple in Star Wars iconography since the very beginning, helping to shape the designs of some of the most notable characters in the galaxy. So, it only made sense to immortalise those helmets in LEGO brick form.

“It’s always fun to work with the LEGO Group to create new, engaging and mentally stimulating products for builders around the globe, and we’re so excited to bring these LEGO Star Wars helmet building kits, and brand-new packaging, to our fans.”

The new LEGO Star Wars Buildable Model Helmets are the latest example of how the LEGO Group aims to inspire builders of all ages to build, rebuild and get excited by the process of creation.

The new LEGO Star Wars Construction Sets will be the first products designed for those aged 18+ from the LEGO Group to be launched with a new stylish packaging designed to reflect the sophisticated nature of the creative process.

All new products in the LEGO Group’s ranges that appeal to adults will now feature the sleek, minimalistic new design across related packaging, building instructions, exclusive content and in-store and online store design.

Genevieve Capa Cruz, audience strategist at LEGO Group, explained: “Our older fans often look for building challenges related to their passions or interests and many want to display models once they have completed the build.

“The new stylish packaging reflects the sophisticated LEGO build process to clearly differentiate our sets that appeal to adults from those that are loved by our younger fans. The design for different products will also use cues from our older fans’ favourite films, sports or hobbies to help them choose their next challenge and get them excited to proudly display their creations when complete.”
