Two heroes of the Clone Wars, Captain Rex and Clone Commander Cody, receive the LEGO® Star Wars Helmet treatment with new, highly detailed, build-to-display building set models
Billund, January 26, 2023: Revealed ahead of Nuremberg Toy Fair, the LEGO Group has announced two new additions to its popular 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 film Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and continued in the animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
LEGO® Star Wars fans will soon be able to join the Grand Army of the Republic by building the instantly recognisable helmet models of Captain Rex and Clone Commander Cody, two iconic heroes from the Clone Wars as they arrive in two new sets for fans, available from March 1st.
The 854-piece set based on Captain Rex’s helmet captures the iconic blue trim and range-finder of the 501st battalion’s clone captain, one of the most famous characters in the animated series The Clone Wars and second-in-command to Jedi General Anakin Skywalker.
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.
Each set is highly detailed and features printed nameplates of each character, making them perfect collectables for any LEGO Star Wars fan and the perfect build-to-display models to mark this milestone anniversary for the Clone Wars.
“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,” said Jens Kronvold Frederiksen, Design Lead for 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…”
According to research from the LEGO Group’s global ‘Play Well 2022 Report’, 80% of adults are looking for new ways to unwind and relax (80%), with the majority of them (92%) wanting to unwind and find their flow through activities that are related to their hobbies and interests, including beloved product lines such as LEGO Star Wars.
Since 2020, the LEGO Star Wars Helmets portfolio has continued to grow with iconic helmets recreated from the Empire, dark side, and others. In March 2022, the company launched its latest two products: 75327 Luke’s Helmet and 75328 The Mandalorian Helmet.
The 854-piece LEGO Star Wars– Captain Rex and 766-piece LEGO Star Wars– Clone Commander Cody helmet building sets are available from March 1st from LEGO.com and LEGO retailers priced at €69.99 / $69.99 / £59.99. Each set has a recommended building age of 18+.
