Sith Trooper

Every new Star Wars movie release seems to bring a new design for Stormtroopers. It happened even during the original trilogy, with each new planet in the Star Wars galaxy different Stormtrooper designs came with it.

For San Diego Comic Con, the official Star Wars website has offered a look at the Sith Trooper, a new design that will make an appearance in The Rise of Skywalker. From the look of it its mostly just a standard Stormtrooper just its red. There were glimpses at a toy that will be available at comic con and it looks like a sword will come with the toy, but not a lightsaber. Sith trooper seems like a weird name unless this trooper is going to be force sensitive in some way.

We already have one red stormtrooper in Star Wars canon, named Cardinal, it seems to have had a rivalry with Phasma, but this design looks like its meant to be a different character than that.

What do you think of the sith trooper?
