The Lego helmet collection has quickly become a favourite among adults. These sets are affordable, and not too costly. These sets are fun and challenging. The Lego Star Wars Boba Fett Helmet, one of the earliest sets that will be released in 2020, was one of those first sets. Many others have followed their lead. It is still a favourite because of its simple design.
These helmet sets are lightweight and can be placed on a desk, or on a shelf. These helmet sets look great when they are part of a series. Boba Fett, who stands alongside the heroes, is the star in the series. Stormtrooper or Scout Trooper. Just remember, no disintegrations!

Lego Star Wars Boba Fett Helmet review: Build
Lego helmets can be built in the same way as Lego BrickHeadz figures. The internals of the helmet are constructed from SNOT bricks, which means that there are no studs on top. You can layer Boba Fett’s helmet pieces by creating an inner square that has studs around its sides. Although it takes some time for the helmet to take shape, it will eventually come together.

The Lego Star Wars Boba Fett Helmet pieces are spread over five bags, and in total the build will likely take you between one and two hours to complete, depending on how experienced of a builder you are. The first bag is concerned with putting together the helmet’s innards – a frame covered in those afore-mentioned SNOT bricks which then get built upon. By the end of bag two, you’ll have built a tidy-looking black stand on which the helmet sits on. These are uniform across all sets, making them look excellent if displayed as a collection. A printed plaque with the set’s name on really finishes it off. It isn’t until bag three that Boba Fett really starts taking shape. Once you start placing those sand green bricks around the frame, there’s no mistaking what the finished product is going to be.
There are some interesting – and somewhat unorthodox – building techniques employed in putting together the Lego Star Wars Boba Fett Helmet. Ever noticed how Boba Fett has yellow stripes on the side of his helmet? We hadn’t, not until we built the set. But Lego miss no detail, and lo and behold – he does indeed have an array of stripes on the side of his head. In the model, these are cleverly built sideways; an array of yellow and green bricks are slid onto a rail, with bricks around them holding them in place. It’s a super neat technique, and one that’s very effective when complete.

Because most of Boba Fett’s helmet is created in chunks, which are then affixed onto the central frame, it’s easy to go back and rectify something if you – God forbid – make a mistake while building. We made a silly mistake very early on that wasn’t spotted until close to the end of the build. But thankfully it was straightforward enough to remove the sides and find what needed to be fixed. Don’t do what we did, though – pay closer attention while building!
Ours was an easy mistake to make, and it’s partly down to the fact that the printed instructions to go along with the Lego Star Wars Boba Fett Helmet are not the best quality. Like other sets in the range, the pages are black and partly glossy. It makes it difficult to clearly see in some lights, particularly when it comes to distinguishing dark green bricks – which really don’t stand out very well on a black page.
Lego Star Wars Boba Fett Helmet review: Design
Thanks to his striking color scheme, Boba Fett is one of the most iconic mainstay Star Wars characters there is, and in Lego form that really shines. Next to an all-white StormtrooperOr an all-black Darth Vader helmet, Boba Fett’s helmet mix of sand green, dark green, and dark red (and those yellow stripes) really stand out.
When it’s finished, the Boba Fett helmet is a really solid build that, unlike some other Lego display models, you don’t feel is going to break every time you pick it up. We wouldn’t suggest throwing it around, of course, but moving it from one display place to another should be no problem. And, no matter where you decide to put it, it’s going to look great. We’ve settled on sitting it alongside our other Lego helmets, but even by itself, the Lego Star Wars Boba Fett Helmet looks fantastic.
Our only real gripe with this kit – and Lego’s helmet range in general – is that they don’t contain any minifigures. A minifigure to match the helmet, to stand aside the display plaque, would really round off the set perfectly. Still, it’s not the end of the world; there are plenty of sets out there that do contain Boba Fett (see our ‘Other sets’ section below).

Do you need the Lego Star Wars Boba Fett Helmet to protect your head?
The Lego Star Wars Boba Fett Helmet is a must-have for any Boba Fett fan, whether you are a Star WarsOr recent Star Wars trilogy fan. It is not a toy for children. If your child likes to play with the models, this might be a good choice. We think adults and older children will enjoy a great build, followed by a beautiful display piece.
This Lego set does not include any minifigures. If you are a collector of Lego’s little figures, this might not be the right set for you. This Boba Fett replica headgear is a great buy if this is not an issue and especially if you already have other Lego helmets.
