Build your very own Empire, from helmets to droids!

LEGO just gave adult Star Wars fans even more of a reason to geek out like a kid at Christmas, with three new sets based on iconic characters from the franchise.

Two of the new sets are additions to the LEGO Star Wars helmet collection that debuted last year. Build the power of the dark side with an 834-piece Darth Vader helmet ($69.99) designed to stand out in your collection as a highly detailed replication of the iconic mask. To protect Vader, there is a 471-piece replica of a Scout Trooper helmet from Return of the Jedi ($49.99). Both helmets come with a buildable display stand and a nameplate.

If you are looking for a building set with a little more action, the third new LEGO Star Wars item is an Imperial Probe Droid ($59.99) based on The Empire Strikes Back’s iconic opening scene on Hoth. This 683-piece set comes with a fully possible droid, with details including the little blinking orange light, a clear stand on top of the freezing Hoth snow, and an information plaque.
