Below we will go through each of the helmets released since their launch in 2015. We will go into the details, prices, and looks of each.
1. Kylo Ren Helmet
The first Black Series helmet released in 2015 was the Kylo Ren helmet. It is based on his helmet he wears in The Force Awakens. From the weathered black to the silver mask, it matches perfectly with the one seen in the movie. It even includes dents and scratches.
This helmet can be taken apart into two pieces. The front has an electronic voice changer to mask your voice, making it the rough style of Rens. Inside are adjustable straps to fit the helmet to your head.
Original RRP $79.99.
2. Shadow Trooper Helmet
Released a year after the Kylo Ren Helmet, in 2016, the Shadow Trooper Helmet was based on the troopers found it in the video game Battlefront. The helmet includes silver, grey, and blue details on the black helmet.
Just like the Kylo Ren helmet, the Shadow Trooper one has a voice changer. It distorts your voice to sound like that of the Shadow Troopers. Additionally, if you prefer an even more realistic experience, the helmet plays lines from the movie.
The helmet contains an adjustable chin strap for stability. Original RRP $79.99.
3. Black Series Imperial Stormtrooper Helmet
The Imperial Stormtrooper Helmet was released the same year as the Shadow Trooper (2016). It was designed to match the stormtroopers’ helmets in Rogue One. The bright white main design has grey and black markings.
This helmet fits a little bit smaller than the other two previously listed. As such, it is a great choice for younger kids to wear. The plastic helmet comes with a chin strap and other adjustable straps for a snugger fit.
This Stormtrooper helmet comes with a voice changer to match the identical voices of each trooper. Original RRP $79.99.
4. Poe Dameron Black Series Helmet
Everyone’s favorite pilot from the sequel trilogy also has his helmet available in the Black Series. Made in 2017, it doesn’t contain a voice changer like the previous three listed. Instead, it comes with speakers that make the sounds of BB-8 and X-Wing Fighters fly by.
The sounds are voice-activated. All you have to say is “hey BB-8,” and you’ll be in the heat of the battle with X-Wings flying by and BB-8 responding to your instructions. You’ll feel as though you are flying a ship yourself.
Unlike some helmets, it has an open design, allowing for better visibility. Additionally, it has the Resistance insignia. It is red, black, and silver like seen in the movies. Scratches and dents are painted on to show the wear and tear of battles experienced. The yellow visor is retractable, allowing you to keep it up or down.
Poe’s helmet comes with padding that can be removed. The removal of padding allows for the helmet to fit a larger variety of head sizes. Original RRP $79.99.
5. Darth Vader Black Series Helmet
Since Star Wars’ first creation in 1977, Darth Vader has been a favorite character for everyone to Cosplay. From his iconic voice to his illustrious presence, he is an intimidating Sith for sure.
Although the helmet doesn’t contain a voice changer, the other features make up for it. As seen in various scenes in the movies, his mask has multiple pieces. This one does as well, including a collar, mask, and hood piece.
When the outer mask is removed it makes a hissing sound. Whereas when it is sealed, it makes a thunk. The helmet also makes Darth Vader’s iconic breathing sounds.
This helmet was first released in 2018, then rereleased in 2021. Its original price was $99.99. The second release increased the price to $124.99.
6. Imperial Shock Trooper
Made in 2019, the Imperial Shock Trooper helmet is designed after the troopers in Battlefront II. Thick, bright red stripes cover the white helmet.
Inside the helmet are adjustable straps, making it fit any head size. Like the other trooper helmets, this one includes a voice changer to match the shock trooper’s voices.
This helmet was an exclusive GameStop one. Original RRP $99.99.
7. Boba Fett (The Empire Strikes Back)
The fearless bounty hunter, Boba Fett’s helmet, is one of the most highly detailed helmets in Star Wars. From the intense battle wear to the range finder, every detail is there. Even though he is seen in various shows and movies, this specific design matches his helmet worn in The Empire Strikes Back.
It is adjustable and has interior padding. Like the other helmets, the padding can be taken out if desired. The interior also includes detailed designs.
The range finder on the outside can be flipped down. When it’s down, it lights up with flashing LED lights.
The Boba Fett helmet is another one that was released twice–once in 2019 and once in 2022. It cost $119.99, then $124.99.
8. Incinerator Stormtrooper
The first helmet released after one seen in a tv show was the Incinerator Stormtrooper. Based on the one seen in The Mandalorian, it matches the white with red markings on the helmet.
These were the troopers that wielded flamethrowers and had heat-resistant armor. Although this helmet isn’t heat resistant, it sure is a hot pick for cosplayers.
It also has adjustable straps and padding inside, making it wearable for all head sizes. The electric voice changers make your voice sound just like the troopers seen in The Mandalorian.
When it was released in 2019, it cost $99.99.
9. Luke Skywalker (X-Wing)
Just like the Poe Dameron helmet, Luke’s helmet doesn’t cover the entire face. It has attachable Velcro padding for the inside and a chin strap to make it a comfortable fit.
If you’ve ever wanted to experience the heat of battle, this helmet does just that! Luke’s visor simulates blaster blasts from enemy ships. Speakers make the sounds of blaster fire as well.
So not only does this helmet sound like the battles Luke experienced, but it also looks the part. The white and red helmet is battle-scarred and damaged just as in the movie.
This 2019 replica originally cost $99.99.

Unbeknownst to some fans is the fact that the original design for Boba’s armor was white. In honor of that design, the white helmet was created. It was released on the 40th anniversary of the release of The Empire Strikes Back.

13. Mandalorian Death Watch
The infamous Death Watch, the group that terrorized Dutchess Satine and her people, have their helmets as part of the Black Series too. Although not made out of actual beskar, it is modeled after the material. It has a very similar design to Boba Fett’s helmet, although the colors are different.
The all-silver-grey armored helmet includes a flip-down range finder. The range finder lights up to reveal LED flashing lights. Additionally, there is a heads-up display that illuminates. The interior is padded, making it fit comfortably on the head. There are also scratches seen around the outside to represent battle scarring.

Another famous pilot’s helmet, Wedge Antilles, matches the one he wears in the movies. With a thick visor, weathering, and a microphone, you’ll be flying like him in no time! The helmet has an adjustable chin strap and comfortable padding on the interior.

22. 332nd Ahsoka’s Clone Trooper
Once Hasbro finally released a Black Series Helmet of the Phase 2 Clone Trooper it was obvious that various battalions would follow. The first to use the mold is the 332nd Ahsoka’s Clone Trooper. This Phase 2 Clone helmet bares the markings of Ahsoka as seen in series 7 of The Clone Wars.
The helmet itself has all of the features of the plain white version. A great looking helmet for the collection!
23. Axe Woves

24. Scout Trooper Helmet
Out of all of the Black Series helmets the Scout Trooper has to be my favorite. Such an iconic trooper from Return of the Jedi and probably the coolest design. We have been waiting ages for Hasbro to make this and it does not disappoint. Packed with all the features you would expect from a Black Series helmet, the Scout Trooper includes voice distortion, adjustable fit and premium deco.
No matter if you are looking for another addition to your collection, or you are looking for the best quality helmets for your Cosplay costume, the Black Series offers a quality variety.
From Boba Fett to Wedge Antilles, you can choose from your favorite movie or tv show characters. Since 2015, they have released a variety of characters’ helmets and some of the same. No matter which movie you want to base your costumes on, they have an option for you.
It’ll be exciting to see which further releases will come out in the next few years. Will we get some unique helmets such as those the members of the Bad Batch wear? Which character’s helmet would you like to see created next?
