Last week, it was announced that LEGO® DOTS is going to be discontinued, with no new releases after the March Harry Potter wave. But will other themes be stepping up to keep up our supply of customisable posters, storage boxes and pencil pots?
The adult-focused Helmet series keeps on coming, with another in the Marvel series revealed today. 76251 Star Lord’s Helmet has been unveilled ahead of the Nuremberg Toy Fair this week. With 602 pieces, it has an interesting form compared with previous marvel helmets, as this helmet is not designed to cover the entire head.
It has been a couple of years since we have had a Marvel helmet in this scale (not counting 2022’s much larger Black Panther), but I cannot help but think something must be being hidden away, given LEGO Spider-Man’s 20th anniversary this year.
I guess I can only hope.
This model has 602 pieces, and will be released on April 1st, 2023. Expected pricing is 79,99 USD / 79,99 EUR / 69,99 GBP / 129.99 AUD / 799.0 CNY / 99.99 CAD.
I am delighted to see that this model, while predominantly designed for display can also serve as a pencil pot. DOTS will be retiring, with the forthcoming Harry Potter releases being the last sets in that theme. however, the notion of using LEGO elements for customising, as well as arts and crafts remains
I’ll have to admit, I like the look of this, and it appears there might be some interesting elements and build techniques involved.
