    Over at the official site, the new Sith Trooper design has been revealed:

    Interesting they're calling it a Sith trooper, especially after Kylo Ren's "forget the past" speech in TLJ.

    Thoughts ?

    Sith Trooper? Do they have Dark Side Force powers? Like Sith Inquisitors?

    Pretty amazing how that "fan made poster" awhile back predicted this exactly :rolleyes:

    But sarcasm aside, so cool!! The name says a lot about where the First Order is heading. Are the Sith back in name?

    Maybe Sith Troopers are just what Kylo uses as his Guards. (Imperial Guards-OT, Praetorian Guards-TLJ) They are red.

    Haha, it did! I had people arguing with me about that poster (which is saved to this very computer) elsewhere.

    Yea. Now that Snoke is out of the picture and Kylo is in control. I could see him go full steam ahead trying to be what he thinks Vader and the Emperor were. With the Emperor' s cackle in the trailer, I know most thoughts associate the Sith Trooper coming with him. However, the Emperor had special guards with a look separating them from Stormtroopers. Snoke even had something different as his personnel guards. To me, this seems like something Kylo would do, basically re-purposing a Trooper in red, in attempts to live up what he thinks Vader intended.

    Noice.

    I seriously hope that they called "Sith" for a reason and they are not just a cool name and a cool design that have 2 seconds of screentime like the First Order Executioners.

    Also, is it me or does the helmet look a little bit Clone-like?

    So the Sith Troopers... these are different than the "Red Fury" stormtroopers or no? Serious question, cause I don't know.

    With that logic, there should be an army of Constable Zuvios sitting in a warehouse somwhere!

    It would be fascinating if these Sith Troopers were clones. I keep going back to Kylo's line in TFA about how Snoke should consider using a clone army. Well, now Kylo's the Supreme Leader, so . . .

    And they are called sith troopers because they are clones of Palpatine. (emperor)(yoda)
