LEGO has released a statement regarding the new LEGO Star Wars 501st Clone Troopers Battle Pack (75345). The main issue here is that the box image shows the helmet on the Clone Trooper doesn’t show what the final element and the positioning of the range finder. The box art shows it connected lower than the actual piece provided.
LEGO Star Wars Creative Lead Jens Kronvold Frederiksen states,
“Creating new sets involves a number of different teams working together in parallel, and unfortunately in this case the printed box art for 75345 features a computer render of a Phase 2 Clone Trooper helmet that doesn’t reflect the final finished physical element and positioning of the range finder on the figure.
In the final design of the physical helmet element, the visor dictates where holes for extra attachments need to be placed for them to sit. This is slightly higher than the position where the range finder is on the render found on the 75345 box.”
