In wookieepedia, the First Order Tie Fighter pilots don't have red on their helmets.

However, some of the toys show these weird red lines:

I remember seeing red on the pilot's helmet in the film, but I assumed it was just a reflection of some kind. This belief was reenforced by the first image and the fact that some toys show it all black. I was therefore very surprised to see some toys had the red marking. Do any First Order pilots have red on their helmets, or is this some kind of mistake in the toy coloring or something?

Only the elite special forces ones.

From the canonical Star Wars databank:

Elite Special Forces fighter pilots bear red flashes on their helmets, and report to the upper ranks of the First Order hierarchy.

  • O.O Man, I was sure those red lines were just reflections, haha! Thanks. :)

    @Valorum Not lie, but they tricked me. My toy doesn't have any red on it. Mine must not be the "special" kind :/
