As 76251 Star-Lord’s helmet approaches release, Blocks is taking a look through the Marvel multiverse to see which helmets could be next.
As the LEGO Marvel theme continues to evolve, it is offering far more display models for fans of the multiverse. The latest addition is 76251 Star-Lord’s Helmet, based on its appearance in Guardians of the Galaxy and just in time for the third instalment from director James Gunn. It’s a quirky display piece that also doubles as a pencil holder for some reason.
Slightly weird desk storage aside, it continues to expand this range with something way different to its predecessors. Blocks, the LEGO magazine for fans, is flying on the Marauder to see which others could be next…
Perhaps the most obvious choice on this list is Loki’s helmet, which features the horns that are an iconic part of his look. They change quite a bit between his appearances, but his original helmet from Thor is definitely the most recognisable. With plenty more pearl-gold pieces introduced in 76191 Infinity Gauntlet and 76210 Hulkbuster, then recreating the curved helmet itself should be easier. The biggest challenge would be the actual horns, which need a lot of curved or shell elements, and they currently don’t come in this colour.
This design has quite a few similarities to Star-Lord’s mask, and could even use the same circular tiles for the eyes. In fact the biggest difference is that the helmet fits Scott Lang’s entire face, so it would need to curve in all three dimensions. On each side are also little triangular communication antenna, which would need to be incorporated too. In the movies Ant-Man’s helmet is a weathered chrome, but using light grey LEGO bricks would probably work just as effectively.

Green Goblin’s mask
Now this one would be hugely popular with all Spider-Man fans, as the Green Goblin is probably Spidey’s most famous nemesis (sorry, Venom). It’s an incredibly organic helmet featuring an elongated cranium and very prominent pointed ears, so it would make for a very engaging build. There are a lot of suitable elements in green though and there could be hints of purple also included to pay homage to the original Sam Raimi version. It would mainly need new trans-yellow pieces for the eyes and possibly pearl-grey LEGO tooth elements.
With recent cameos in Spider-Man: No Way Home and She-Hulk, Daredevil is back in the multiverse. His half-mask, which hides Matt Murdock’s identity, is either red or a dark yellow, depending on the particular Marvel show. Either colour would make for a striking display piece, and could use the same stand design as 75327 Luke Skywalker (Red Five) Helmet. One of the trickiest elements would probably be getting the angles for the nose and horns without making Daredevil accidentally look like a red Batman.
Mighty Thor (aka Jane Foster)
Plenty of the women of Marvel wear fantastic helmets, from Shuri’s Black Panther to Captain Marvel herself, so it would be great to see some representation in this range. Mighty Thor caused quite a stir when her minifigure helmet included a nose-guard, and it would definitely be striking at this bigger scale. Dark grey and red pieces could combine into the overall shape, with some silver accents for the wings. Achieving the different Asgardian patterns would require some clever techniques that could possibly be taken from 75349 Captain Rex’s Helmet.
There are so many masks and helmets worn by characters across the multiverse, whether they are hero or villain, and many of them would make amazing display pieces. Who would you like to see next? Grab a hammer or charge up on some gamma rays and come tell Blocks on any of our social media channels.
