If you watched the designer video for the LEGO NASA Space Shuttle Discovery (10283), you may have seen a mysterious brick-built helmet in the background. Sitting on the back shelf behind Milan is a red helmet that looks very much like a Star Wars Rebel helmet. It doesn’t seem to fit in with the rest of the items on display and there are four shots in the video at different angles to give a good look at it. One particular moment at 3:10 where Nico steps back to show off it a bit more, somewhat saying “look at that helmet”. We already know that LEGO likes to throw in teasers and Easter eggs in their videos and sets and this is a space-themed video. I’m going making a giant leap and saying that it could be a prototype of a new LEGO Star Wars life-size helmet line similar to the Hasbro Black Series helmets.
As you can see from the images, the helmet is solid red with a white stripe down the middle and some stripes on the side. There’s even some flaps in the front for the visor. I can’t find a reference to who wears a solid red helmet in that style. All I found was something similar for John D’s Red 4 X-Wing but it doesn’t look like it. What do you guys think that helmet is about?
