The Reveal of SITH TROOPER from "Star Wars - The Rise of Skywalker"
Top of the news this Thursday morning - as I scrolled thru my social feeds - was the reveal of the SITH TROOPER, to appear in the upcoming "Star Wars - The Rise of Skywalker" film! Awash in Red with Black (joints) accents, it looks like some custom-painted the Storm Trooper armour for cosplay at a convention! Hey, I am NOT knocking it, as these are my blog-colours = a combo used for tons of my exclusive edition releases with different artists LOL
"The next evolution of the Imperial/First Order guard was unveiled Wednesday in toy form." Reported ew.com, "As described by StarWars.com and Lucasfilm’s official The Star Wars Show, this new red uniform serves as “a modern and more menacing look befitting its namesake.”"
And of course the reveal(s) came in the form of TOYS! Starwars.com has all the low-down here, some of which I have replicated here, including the above-featured "The Black Series, Special Edition, Sith Trooper" = A Early Release Edition priced at US$32 - available at Booth #3329!
