The next set I’ll be taking a look at for the new LEGO Star Wars Helmets is the TIE Fighter Pilot Helmet (75274). It has 724 pieces which is the most out of the three helmets but at the same price point of $59.99. The contents of the box include six numbered bags, a small sticker sheet, the instructions, and two loose tubes.
For the boxes for this line, they have a matte finish to it with the helmet details being embossed.
The build starts off with the foundation of the helmet with the internals using a lot of bricks with the studs on the sides. Again it looks ugly but all four sides will be covered up later on.
Next up, we have the base which uses a couple of Technic liftarms that stabilize the helmet to the base. There are also parts for the backside of the TIE Fighter helmet.
For bag 3, we have a lot of black parts that are used to cover the top half of the helmet on both sides as well as on the front visor area. There’s nothing really special about it but there is a lot of plate stacking.
Following that, we attach the two gray tubes to the front for the flexible gas transfer tubes. For the nose/mouth guard area, it uses a couple of hinges to give it the slanted design. The two small stickers are used here to finish off the detailing. The rest of the parts are used for the left side of the helmet and again, there are a lot of plate usage to get the curves down. Finally, there are some 4×4 round corner tiles to give it some more detailing.
For bag 5, you just fill in the right side of the helmet. It’s the exact same as the left but opposite. There’s not much more to that.
Lastly, we fill in the area around the chin with the vents using black sloped grill pieces. For the tubes, it uses some Technic Wheel 31 x 15 at the base a lot of small train wheels for the flex tube, 18 on each side to be exact. It’s very repetitive but the end result works well. The tubes connect to the bottom of the base. There are also some printed dish pieces for the insignia on the top front of the helmet. Finally, there’s also the printed plate for the LEGO Star Wars TIE Fighter Pilot that sits at the front of the base.
Overall the LEGO Star Wars TIE Fighter Pilot Helmet (75274) has a bit more detail than Boba Fett but a lot of the build is also very repetitive. The angles on it is pretty spot on and the way the tubes are designed is very nice. Since it is a helmet, the coloring is extremely bland on the completed build as there is absolutely no color besides on the plaque on the base.
