The helmet of Mandalorian Bo-Katan Kryze is joining Hasbro’s expanding line of Star Wars replicas. These affordable prop recreations, part of the Black Series, have made collecting iconic hardware from a galaxy far, far away easier on those of us who are budget conscious.

We saw the announcement over at Figures.com. Based on her live-action counterpart played by Katee Sackhoff in The Mandalorian, Bo-Katan’s helmet has many of the same features as the previously released Boba Fett bucket. It features a “working” rangefinder that illuminates when lowered, along with a detailed interior, batteries not included, of course.

The helmet won’t be released until Fall 2022. Unfortunately, I have not seen a Black Series helmet in stores since the Pandemic. So, it may be a good idea to pre-order this thing at whatever retailer you prefer.

Featuring highly detailed deco, series-inspired design, adjustable fit, interior padding, and electronic lights, this full-scale STAR WARS THE BLACK SERIES BO-KATAN KRYZE PREMIUM ELECTRONIC Helmet is an iconic addition to any STAR WARS fan’s collection. With the press of a button, the rangefinder drops down, activating 2 red LEDs that flash in a “hunting” pattern as well as a white LED-illuminated heads-up display (HUD).

I own a few of the Black Series helmets. However, Boba Fett’s is probably the best version of the helmet I’ve come across when it comes to fit. It’s an excellent display piece but doesn’t hold a candle to the high-end replicas.

However, if you’re cosplaying, it is lightweight and a bit more forgiving when it comes to wear and tear. Bo-Katan’s helmet appears to be constructed the same way, including the padding on the inside.

These replicas have come such a long way over the decades. I remember dropping $100 on a Don Post Boba Fett helmet in the mid-1990s. Within about five years, the inside of it started to weep this weird brownish liquid, almost like the material was melting.

Now for nearly the same price, you get something superior and with more attention to detail. Even the old Darth Vader helmet managed not to be very screen-accurate but still ran about $40-$50. We sure were suckers back then.

What do you think of the Black Series helmet replicas? Which iconic hardware from Star Wars would you like to see make its way to this line? Let us know in the comments section below.
