With the new Star Wars film comes another Stormtrooper. This redesign looks actually really cool. It would seem that The Rise of Skywalker will be bringing with it the full force of the dark side. StarWars.com just officially released the first look of a brand new Stormtrooper. It’s red, It’s angular and it looks evil! It’s called the Sith Trooper.
It would seem as though the Supreme leader Kylo Ren is going all in hardcore to hunt down any resistance. For fans that have the luck of attending San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) next week, they will be able to get their hands on the Sith Trooper before anyone else. They will also be able to see the full uniform of The Rise fo Skywalker as part of the special exhibit being put on at the event. There will be Hasbro Black Series 6-inch and Hot Toys 12-inch figures, as well as a Funko Pop, a tiki mug, pins, trading cards, T-shirts, hats, kids’ costumes.
It has some really unique aesthetics to it. And it has some subtleties to previous stormtrooper designs, which I think fans will enjoy discovering.Madlyn Burkert, Lucasfilm archivist
