It’s nice to see another Marvel character given the LEGO Helmet treatment. And this time around, Peter Quill’s Star-Lord joins the ranks of Iron Man, Venom, and Carnage to have this particular helmet motif. But what makes this most recent offering stand out is that it also doubles as a pencil pot. I appreciate how LEGO designers opted to include this functionality since it’s not just a centerpiece display but also serves a particular purpose. I will certainly like to have this on my desk.

The LEGO Marvel Star-Lord’s Helmet (76251) comes at 602 pieces and retails for $79.99. You can pre-order this now at, with a release date of April 1st. Check out the rest of its product details, and if you want, you can also use our affiliate link below to pre-order this set.

More LEGO Star Wars Helmets Revealed – Now Up at LEGO Shop@Home

After its initial launch in March of last year, LEGO has now added more Instagram-worthy sets under its LEGO Star Wars Helmets collection. And this time around, the Empire is getting another boost with the introduction of the LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Helmet (75304), and the Scout Trooper Helmet (75305).

These latest additions to the LEGO Star Wars Helmets feature some of the most iconic figures in Star Wars lore. This most recent version of the Sith Lord is by far his largest brick sculpture to date. If you recall back in 2019, LEGO has also released a Target-exclusive LEGO Star Wars Darth Vader Bust (75227) as part of LEGO’s promotional event in celebrating LEGO Star Wars’ 20th anniversary. However, this year’s offering c0mes with almost 3 times the number of LEGO pieces compared to its predecessor.

Additionally, the LEGO Star Wars Scout Trooper Helmet (75305) comes as the third Imperial-inspired set among the LEGO Star Wars Helmet collection, following that of the Stormtrooper Helmet (75276) and TIE Fighter Pilot Helmet (75274). It will be great if LEGO will also come up with a Rebel Pilot Helmet of some sort to balance things out. We just have to wait and see.

LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Batman Cowl (76182) Revealed

After unveiling its LEGO Marvel Carnage (76199) brick helmet a couple of weeks ago, a third-party retailer now gives us a look at another LEGO buildable display set following the same genre. Similar to Target’s reveal, Barnes and Noble has now published official images of the LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes Batman Cowl (76182), scheduled to arrive on April 26.

Batman Cowl

If you were following the rumor train on this one, you have probably seen what this new LEGO DC Super Heroes Batman Cowl has to offer. Coming in at 410 pieces, the model stands at 22 centimeters and is geared primarily towards the adult LEGO fan community. It follows the same design concept as that of the LEGO Marvel Carnage, even coming with a similar nameplate intended for display purposes. And given that the brick-version of Marvel’s Carnage is expected to retail for $60, then it goes to show that its DC counterpart may likewise sell within the same price range as well.

As of this posting, B&N seems to have removed the LEGO Batman Cowl over its shopping portal (oops, I guess someone was quite excited for the reveal) and is still yet to appear over at LEGO Shop@Home. I’ll update you as soon as more information comes up. Thanks to Hoth Bricks for the tip.

LEGO Marvel Carnage (76199) Now Up at LEGO Shop@Home

Last week, it was revealed that a villainous Marvel character will be added to the LEGO Helmet Collection in the form of the LEGO Marvel Carnage (76199). Initially offered as a Target pre-order exclusive, it is good to know that the set has finally appeared over at LEGO Shop@Home slated for an April 11, 2021 release.

LEGO Marvel Carnage (76199)

The LEGO Marvel Carnage (76199), which is basically more of a bust rather than a helmet, takes its cue from its notoriously evil villain counterpart from Marvel comics (which makes me also wonder if having such a vicious baddie in its roster of Marvel sets will run counter against LEGO’s values). This is not the first time that LEGO featured this ultra-violent character, though. There are two particular LEGO Marvel sets where this blood-colored symbiote is featured: 2015’s Carnage’s SHIELD Sky Attack (76036) and the more recent Spider-Man and Ghost Rider vs. Carnage (76173). And now having the LEGO Marvel Carnage (76199) helmet/bust under the LEGO 18+ series further seals Carnage’s place in the LEGO subthemes.

And in case you’re interested to add this set to your Instagram-worthy LEGO collection, then you may click the following affiliate link below to add this set to your LEGO wishlist. The LEGO Marvel Carnage (76199) set comes in at 546 pieces and will retail for $60 once it arrives in stores on April 11.

New LEGO Marvel Carnage Helmet (76199) Revealed

It looks like there is a new addition to the LEGO Helmet Collection hailing from the Marvel universe. Reddit user pbpdesigns have shared some details on what seems to be a Target-exclusive. And from the looks of it, we can expect a new, crazy cool LEGO Marvel Carnage Helmet (76199) set any time soon.

This info came in when pbpdesigns shared a notification from the Target app revealing this LEGO Marvel Carnage Helmet (76199) pre-order offer as you can see below. As of this posting, the Target alert indicates that the set will go live for pre-order on March 11, 8 AM CST, and the link for its product page is not yet published live.

Carnage helmet coming to Target. Just got an alert. from lego

The LEGO Marvel Carnage (76199) is based on one of Marvel’s most formidable symbiote villains who is also slated to appear in future Sony films. Similar to sets under the LEGO Helmet Collections, this set follows the same design concept appealing mainly to adult LEGO fans. And though this new subtheme seems to offer more Star Wars characters, it looks like LEGO intends to accommodate more licensed characters outside of this theme. On a side note, there are also rumors (and leaked images) circulating online on what looks like a similar Batman brick-built bust. I guess only time can tell if this will also officially surface or is just another kind of deliberate misdirection.

I also understand the hype over this new LEGO Marvel Carnage helmet considering how on-point its design is. The black and red color scheme beautifully stands out, and I love how the details of Carnage’s eyes and glorious teeth define this iconic villain. I just can’t figure out if this set also comes with printed pieces for those symbiote-laden eyebrows and forehead, but I guess that it might be stickers.

Though it is labeled as a Target-exclusive, I am still expecting that this set will eventually appear over at LEGO Shop@Home. I’ll keep you posted. So what do you think of this new LEGO Marvel Carnage Helmet bust? Will you pre-order this over at Target? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

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.

LEGO Marvel Iron Man Helmet

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.
