Just because Star Wars won’t have a panel at Comic-Con this year, doesn’t mean that they don’t have something big to share with fans. What we are getting is an early look at a new Stormtrooper! The name might be the most interesting part, Sith Trooper.
You can see the photo above with the red suit, instead of traditional white. This photo is of the Hot Toys statue, but there will also be a Hasbro Black Series figure, Funko and more! The fill reveal happened on The Star Wars Show, which you can see here:
Now to the real question, exactly who are these troopers aligned with? Could these be troopers loyal to Kylo Ren and the Knights of Ren? Kylo hasn’t actually been revealed as a Sith yet, so that would be interesting. We also know that Emperor Palpatine will be back for this movie as well, so is this some secret army. Better yet, will Palpatine actually be clashing with Kylo instead of joining with him? We can’t just assume that all the evil will just get along. That’s the beauty of something like this though isn’t it? These are the discussions that we live for as fans!
I’m sure there will be all kinds of new products and info at the Star Wars/Lucasfilms booth at Comic-Con coming up. For now, let’s hear your Sith Trooper theories!
