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. Funko obviously has their own exclusive POP figure of the trooper, and there's a t-shirt featuring the menacing helmet front and center.
"It has some really unique aesthetics to it".
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.
Stormtroopers have been a part of the Star Wars franchise since the beginning.
Per Star Wars tradition, the upcoming film will introduce a brand-new Stormtrooper design to the galaxy. Star Wars: Episode 9 Sith Troopers have been revealed as the latest in a long, long line of cannon fodder and generally rubbish marksmen. They've made it. And it'll be at San Diego-Comic Con! This early release edition will be available for $15. And if you happen to be at Comic-Con next week, you'll have a shot at getting the first Star Wars Sith Trooper merchandise, including figures and more. It will be available for $32. The Sith-red troopers suggest Palpatine will take control of the First Order in The Rise of Skywalker. Star Wars fans will also recognize the name derives from the Knights of the Old Republic game. They were originally members of the Republic Army who served under Darth Revan.
The Sith would eventually institute a strict training regimen to become a Sith Trooper. With Sith Troopers running around, The Rise of the Skywalker may finally bring the Sith Lords out of the shadows where they've lurked for generations.
