A Look at the LEGO Marvel Iron Man Helmet (76165)

The LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Summer 2020 sets have been officially revealed, and one particular set that caught my AFOL’s eye is the LEGO Marvel Iron Man Helmet (76165). The announcement of this set is a welcomed surprise actually, and a fitting tribute to one of the pillars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Thanks to the Laughing Place, we now have a better look at what to expect from the upcoming LEGO Marvel Iron Man Helmet (76165) and what it means to the trend of buildable display helmets later in the future. To be accurate, we only have a couple of images for this set as of today, so I do hope to see its respective listing at LEGO Shop@Home anytime soon.

LEGO Marvel Iron Man Helmet

From the get-go, LEGO intends to give this set its 18+ branding making it clear that this set is intended for AFOLs or adult fans of LEGO as a buildable display set. True to their word, the LEGO Marvel Iron Man Helmet (76165) follows the same aesthetics as that of the LEGO Star Wars Helmet Collection such as the TIE Fighter Pilot Helmet (75274), Stormtrooper Helmet (75276) and Boba Fett Helmet (75277). At 480 pieces, this brick rendition of Tony Stark’s helmet also comes in a similar scale as compared to its Star Wars counterpart.  LEGO also seems to be aiming for a uniform display base for all of its collectible helmets, including a standard nameplate for all of them.

The box art of the Iron Man Helmet also follows the same design as its predecessors, with the 18+ logo prominently displayed in front. LEGO intends this brick sculpture to be more of a display set that appeals to older LEGO collectors. The Avengers logo is also included in front adding an MCU vibe into it – a fitting tribute to a fallen hero that we all cried for during his final heroic moments in Avengers: Endgame. Among the helmet series, this one definitely has a reserved spot in my collection.

The LEGO Marvel Iron Man Helmet is expected to arrive in Target stores on June 1, though we can also expect it to be available by then at LEGO stores both online and in-store since there was no mention that it is a store exclusive.

So what do you think of this latest addition to the LEGO helmet series? Will you give this a thumbs up? Do you have other licensed characters in mind that are fitting to be given the LEGO helmet treatment? Let me know what you think in the comments below.

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Summer 2020 Lineup Officially Announced

Earlier today, Yahoo has just announced the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes summer 2020 lineup of sets that pays tribute to the Earth’s mightiest heroes. It’s been more than a year since we saw the conclusion of MCU’s Phase 4 in Avengers: Endgame and this time around LEGO is throwing another batch of sets that relive those action-packed moments. Same as before, they may not accurately reflect those particular MCU scenes, but LEGO’s brick renditions are still to be desired. And to top it off, this summer 2020 series now gives our first brick-built Iron Man Bust in tribute to the legacy of Tony Stark.

While two of these are now listed at LEGO Shop@Home, the remaining LEGO Marvel Super Heroes summer 2020 sets, including the Iron Man Bust, are still to be included. You may want to click on the following links below if you wish to add them to your LEGO wishlist. Yahoo also mentions a Target release date of June, so we’ll have to see if these sets will also be available at LEGO stores by then. Check out these images courtesy of Yahoo and the Laughing Place.
