LEGO.com put these up a little while ago, and now that work has calmed down for me, I can catch up on stuff like this. There are three new LEGO Star Wars items that you can pre-order today with an estimated shipping date of April 26, 2021.
75304 Darth Vader Helmet
Definitely the worst of this new batch of sets, and probably the worst helmet design so far. 75304 Darth Vader Helmet is $69.99 and has 834 pieces. The Dark Lord commands a premium price.
75305 Scout Trooper Helmet
The standout winner in my opinion. 75305 Scout Trooper Helmet is also $49.99 and comes with 471 pieces.
75306 Imperial Probe Droid
The third offering isn’t a helmet but is packaged in the same style as the helmets. It lacks the UCS label but I’m apt to call it a UCS Probe Droid. I’m unsure if getting anything bigger would have made any sense. As a desktop ornament, this is a pretty good size. I’m inclined to want to review it soon. 75306 Imperial Probe Droid has 683 pieces and will cost $59.99.
All three of the new sets will ship on April 26, 2021 from LEGO.com. You can also pre-order them from Amazon if that suits your fancy better:
- 75304 Darth Vader Helmet $69.99
- 75305 Scout Trooper Helmet $49.99
- 75306 Imperial Probe Droid $59.99

I really like that Probe Droid, already pre-ordered it. The Biker Scout helmet is pretty sweet, too. But it’s almost impressive how mediocre that Vader helmet is! Like, if there was ever a helmet for them to have to knock out of the park, this would’ve been the one. If this thing was like a mini playset that *opened up* to reveal a scene inside (DS trench run, dueling Ben, Vader’s meditation chamber, bridge of a Star Destroyer, whatever) then at least I’d understand that the exterior has to make some concessions to fit the cool innards. Heck, even if it was removable and there was the head of Billy Joel playing the harmonica inside, that’d explain it. But since it is *just* the helmet, it doesn’t have those limitations. I know the angles on Vader’s helmet are wonky, but they could’ve done a much better job.
