11 July 2019

Described by the studio as "the next evolution of Imperial/First Order soldiers", these Sith Troopers merge the classic Stormtrooper design with the Imperial Royal Guard outfits.

Abrams, Producer Kathleen Kennedy, Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian), Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Kelly Marie Tran (Rose Tico), Joonas Suotamo (Chewbacca), Naomi Ackie (Jannah) and R2-D2 onstage during "The Rise of Skywalker" panel at the Star Wars Celebration at McCormick Place Convention Center on April 12, 2019 in Chicago, Illinois.

The new Sith Trooper will be on display at San Diego Comic-Con along with a number of other Imperial and First Order Stormtrooper designs.

Adam Bankhurst is a news writer for IGN who thinks he can take on a Sith trooper in a fight. Its a modern and more menacing look befitting its namesake. As it turns out, these are called "Sith Troopers" and Hasbro and Hot Toys have given us a look at the new figures ahead of SDCC 2019.

These latest images show the latest version of the First Order stormtroopers, but instead of their traditional white and black uniforms, they're wearing red.

A major question regarding the Sith Trooper is what it means for the Sith in the sequel trilogy era.

But how do the Sith Troopers fit into Rise of the Skywalker, aside from hinting at Kylo Ren and company wanting to get a slice of that merch money from Tatooine and beyond? Want to discuss a possible story?

I'd expect that the Stormtrooper exhibit at SDCC will reveal a few additional details about these new troopers, though likely nothing too spoilery. Sound off in the comments!
