As part of my LEGO Star Wars collection I also started to purchase the helmets. I already have the Stormtrooper Helmet [1] and Boba Fett Helmet [2] before I started my blog. In this article I am showing my progress of building and my experience of the TIE Fighter Pilot Helmet [3].

The TIE Fighter Helmet is a nice build. Even though there is a lot of black and sometimes it is difficult to see clearly where each bit goes, it is easy to build. The only thing which could be a bit of a struggle is the 'hoses' to connect to the base plate. You need to make sure there is enough space between some of the elements to make the curve go smoothly.

History of TIE Fighter

The first generation of TIE pilots was composed of clones, survivors of the clone trooper pilots of the Republic Starfighter Corps from the Clone Wars. The first clone pilots were first-generation Jango Fett clones, but the best clone pilots were honored as the prime clones for newer pilot lineages, and were distinguished by their all-black dress uniforms.[5] This early use of clones was one of the main reasons why TIE pilots were often viewed as expendable and given little protection during combat.[4]
