When we first posted our speculation report on what sets LEGO would display at New York Toy Fair 2020 we noted that one of the expected April sets was still a mystery.
“Additionally a fourth set is being linked to LEGO set inventory number 75274, and is expected to retail at $70. At this point, this is the full spectrum of speculation on this suspected addition to the LEGO Star Wars theme.”
Now we know that the phantom set is in fact a 724-piece TIE Fighter Helmet, has an RRP of US$69.99 and is a retailer exclusive.
The story’s original source suggests that it will be released as a direct-to-consumer product through LEGO.com and their branded stores on April 19th. Other sources have added that it – at least in the USA – could also be made available through Target on May 4th.
Of course, none of this is accurate or official until LEGO provides information on the product – you can expect to find out a lot more about these helmets in about a week’s time. Until then you can discuss them in the Buildable Model Helmet thread in our LEGO forum.
