LEGO Star Wars -Dark Trooper Helm
About this deal
Buy if: You're a Lego Star Wars fan and want to start (or add to) a Lego Star Wars helmets collection.
Additionally, the whole structure is tilted forward on the presentation stand, using 2x4 Technic hinge plates. The detailing across the underside is therefore paramount because that remains exposed from the rear. The stepped sloping displayed below appears rather awkward, but I am uncertain how that could have been avoided without new parts.For a lot of the photos I took, I intentionally took photos of the best angles, that allow you to see the red eyes in their best light – the red eyes are achieved using trans-red elements, over some white plates, which does brighten it up nicely, but not nearly enough.
Dark Trooper Helmet portrays a droid, so differences between this model and previous examples from the Helmet Collection should be expected. I appreciate such continued variety and the designer has captured wonderful detail, considering the exceptional complexity of the onscreen Dark Troopers. The pronounced vent looks fantastic, for instance. The new LEGO Star Wars helmet building sets are designed to provide fans with another way of venturing into the galaxy, providing a fully immersive building experience that makes a striking display piece once completed. Three new additions to the Helmet Collection have been officially revealed, including 75343 Dark Trooper Helmet. But that’s not all – beneath the helmet, there are plenty of awesome mechanical details, including a hint of drum-lacquered silver on the semi-circles. It’s very industrial-looking, and I appreciate the amount of greebling, even if you won’t see this view often. Oh, and here’s a demonstration of the tilt – you can actually tilt the Dark Trooper head much more, and make it nod.

Innovation  – Some really strong build techniques here, but LEGO needs to work on making darker helmets more visually distinct
