The Mandalorian fans can go full Mando with this electric helmet from Hasbro.
In The Mandalorian, you need someone as skilled as the Armorer to come along and forge you one of the greatest helmets. But in real life, you can just buy these things right off the shelf, and there’s no need to supply your own beskar before it’s made.
That’s why today, as part of Star Wars’ continuous Mando Mondays, Hasbro announced that it’s releasing an extremely realistic-looking Mandalorian helmet that comes straight out of the show. The product is officially called Star Wars: The Black Series The Mandalorian Electronic Helmet, and this new item is currently going for $119.99 at Target.
As of right now, the helmet is officially in pre-order status. And it won’t be released until April 1, 2021. But that just gives us plenty of time to watch The Mandalorian season 2 all the way through and prepare the rest of our cosplay if we want this helmet to be a part of it.
Some of the details of this helmet include a removable tactical light as well as what they call “interior welcome lights.” This will give you the feeling of actually being like Mando himself when he slips the helmet on and sees through his display. Though for this helmet, of course, there won’t be any type of Mandalorian-accurate display. (You’ll also want to have some batteries around to power up the helmet as it runs on one AA battery.)
Additionally, during this Mando Monday drop, Hasbro revealed the Star Wars: The Black Series 6-inch Remnant Trooper Figure. This figure is inspired by the rogue, post-Empire stormtroopers that we saw in season 1 of The Mandalorian. And though challenging as they were, we can’t wait to see more of them in season 2. This figure is coming a little earlier than the helmet, released on Nov. 29. And it will cost you $19.99 at Target.
