I was planning on buying the LEGO Boba Fett Helmet for myself until I had my birthday and I got it as a gift from friends. This enabled me to get this review done way earlier than I expected. With the introduction of three helmets, LEGO gives us some great looking display pieces.
I’m not sure if either this Boba Fett Helmet or the Stormtrooper Helmet is most iconic, but I can imagine this Mandalorian Helmet is slightly more popular because of the Disney Plus series The Mandalorian. There is also a Tie Fighter Pilot helmet which is slightly less imaginative, but that remains to be seen. I will build and review all three eventually. But for now, let’s dive into the LEGO Star Wars Boba Fett Helmet.
Name: Boba Fett

Because this is a display piece and mostly catered to a more adult audience, there are no minifigures in this set.
This set has five bags and a cool instruction booklet with a small backstory on Boba Fett. The very first thing you’ll be building is the inside of the helmet. This is not the most glamourous job, but it does set things up nicely for what’s to come. And LEGO just does a good job of showing you how parts will be connected later in the build.
The stand and the back of the Mandalorian Helmet come next and then you will slightly add different parts (big and small) to the sides of the model while you slowly building towards that iconic look.
The colors on this set are excellent. I love the soft faded green in combination with the dark red and black. The grey wear spot is a nice touch and the yellow stripe pattern on the side creates that iconic and accurate look we all know and love.
I loved putting this set together. The farther you come the more clear it becomes how all pieces fit together. And because you are building something so recognizable, it’s just great fun to see how the helmet turns out.
Are there any features? I can hear the question already. Yes, there are! Not many, but this Boba Fett helmet does have them. The obvious one is of course the range finder on the side of the helmet. This can easily be moved to the front of the visor. To be fair, I can’t recall if Boba actually uses it on screen but it’s there and most of us know what it’s for.
I consider the plaque with the set name and the LEGO Star Wars logo also a feature as you don’t get something like this very often in a smaller build. UCS sets have them in general, but to call this an Ultimate Collector Series might be stretching it.
Something that I consider to be a feature is the fact that there are NO stickers. None, zero, zip! Once again, I don’t really like stickers, so there is nothing for me to screw up in that department.
And last but not least we have something of a hidden feature. The stand the helmet sits on is built in such a way that you can take it off. You can display the helmet only if you feel like it or if the situation asks for it. It is still Boba Fett’s helmet and it still looks awesome no matter what.
This LEGO Star Wars Boba Fett helmet is one of the best things I have built yet and is a great display piece for any Star Wars and/or LEGO enthusiast out there. Building this is nice and clean and everything fits together really well. This is a solid set and I hope the remaining two helmets will give me the same satisfaction as this one did.
- Great for displaying
- Boba Fett!
- Color Scheme
- Sleek and accurate
- Also great without the stand
- Not a playset
