Lego is offering a free Death Star II Battle set (opens in new tab) for all Star Wars purchases above $75 for May the Fourth 2020. The deal ends May 4.

It's time to suit up for "Star Wars Day" — that annual May the Fourth (be with you) fan celebration that happens on Monday. Luckily, Lego has three new helmet sets to help you get in the right mood.

Supporters of the Empire can choose to build any or all of the following Lego sets: a Boba Fett helmet (opens in new tab), a Stormtrooper helmet (opens in new tab) or a TIE fighter pilot helmet (opens in new tab)

While the helmets are not wearable, they would look great on a bookshelf or with other items in your "Star Wars (opens in new tab)" collection. The dimensions are diminutive enough to fit on most furniture, with Boba Fett's helmet at 8 inches (21 centimeters) tall, and the Stormtrooper and TIE fighter pilot helmets at 7 inches (18 cm) tall each.
