    The newest trooper variant in Star Wars, the Sith troopers, will make their debut in The Rise of Skywalker. Other than a close look at their armor at SDCC, no official information has been released to this point, so fans are resorting to rumors and theories. Well now it appears someone may have uncovered links to official merchandise which may reveal the troopers' allegiance.







    POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD





    Reddit user Milnersblog posted a link to a URL that is connected to the official site StarWars.com. Through there, several images can be found of new merchandise, one of which is a Sith trooper T-shirt clarifying who commands them in The Rise of Skywalker. The shirt says:

    Here is the image of the shirt posted on the thread, and back-linked to the official Star Wars site:



    [​IMG]



    Now it appears this link isn't supposed to be public yet, but it is. With that in mind, it is possible these designs never see the light of day in terms of being made available for purchase, but the link to these items directly links back to the official StarWars.com site, which lead us to believe these are legit.



    Here are a few other items connected through the link the redditor posted:

    More proof that this is legitimate, as my podcast co-host James Baney pointed out, is that some of the merchandise in these images is posted in an existing StarWars.com article.

    You might remember one other bit of information about the Sith troopers was accidentally posted at San Diego Comic-Con at the trooper exhibit, a placard which said:

    Safe to say these troopers are a bit more mysterious than your old school 'bump your head' white stormtroopers from A New Hope. We now know they answer to Kylo Ren and the Knights of Ren. The plot thickens! This does make sense, as the troopers helmets match the First Order's style, and we know Kylo Ren has always been a Sith fanboy. We'll keep you updated if more information about this surfaces.



    The Rise of Skywalker is a little over four months away, but merch leaks are starting to pop up more and more, and we imagine some official marketing for the film should take off after D23.

    "Only the finest troopers in the galaxy." Yet how much you wanna bet they're gonna miss their shots 99.9% of the time they're on screen? :rolleyes: Poor Ben...

    Interesting…. it makes me feel that maybe Abrams is revisiting Kylo Ren's inferiority complex as he relates to Lord Vader... I'm looking forward to learning more about these mysterious characters...

    I heard that with these T-Shirts, if you quote the code 'SNOKESTORSO' at checkout you can get 50% off your First Order. ;)

    (EDIT: Just in case, as I got an 'informative', I will clarify this is purely a joke... !)

    Lost in the fine print:


    *You only get half a T-shirt as well.

    I assumed the sith troopers were going to be under Palpatine’s command and fighting against Kylo. I guess I was wrong.

    I think there is a possibility that initially they answer to Kylo but end up being under Palpatine’s command
