The LEGO Group has announced two new additions to its 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 movie “Star Wars: Attack of the Clones” and continued in the animated series, “Star Wars: The Clone Wars.”
The helmet models of Captain Rex and Clone Commander Cody, two heroes from the “Clone Wars,” will be available from Mar. 1.
“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,” says Jens Kronvold Frederiksen, design lead, LEGO “Star Wars.” “These rewarding, relaxing builds should be able to take pride of place for any LEGO ‘Star Wars’ collector and offer a new way to create, display and enjoy these iconic characters who played such a pivotal role in many stories that we know and love from the galaxy far, far away…”
The 854-piece set based on Captain Rex’s helmet captures the blue trim and range-finder of the 501st battalion’s clone captain. 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.
