Because you can never have too many helmets. 

Walmart has fully revealed the next couple LEGO Star Wars models, which include two new helmet models and an Imperial Probe Droid from Empire Strikes Back. The two new helmet models are for Darth Vader and the Scout Trooper, respectively. The Probe Droid is a definite highlight though, as it looks rather detailed.

Let’s talk about the Star Wars Darth Vader Helmet (75304) first. This collectible is a pretty complex build, capturing all the iconic details of this helmet in a compact size. The model comes with a display stand and nameplate, giving it a nice premium look whenever you have visitors over (which probably isn’t happening anytime soon). It’s a 834-piece set, measuring at over 8 inches high, 5.5 inches wide and 5.5 inches deep.

Just like its sibling, the Star Wars Scout Trooper Helmet (75305) comes with a display stand and nameplate. Although it’s fairly detailed, it sounds like a much easier build at 471 pieces - little more than half of the Vader set. This thing measures over 7 inches high, 4.5 inches wide and 4.5 inches deep.

The Imperial Probe Droid (75306) is the star of the show. This droid comes with posable legs and a transparent, brick-built pole to suspend it over a snowy scene, harkening back to its first appearance on the ice planet Hoth. This is meant to be a build-to-display model, so it also comes with an information plaque to show it off. It’s a 683-piece set, measuring over 10.5 inches high, 9 inches wide and 4 inches deep.
