Disney and Lucasfilm have revealed the first look at a new Sith trooper character from the upcoming feature film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con 2019.
The new character model debuted at Comic-Con with a showcase at the Star Wars Pavilion (booth #2913) on the show floor. Disney and Lucasfilm will be highlighting the trooper with an exhibit of the nine different costumes the character wears during the film. Fans and collectors on-site can also purchase an assortment of product inspired by the figure from LEGO, Hasbro, Funko, Fifth Sun and Topps.
“It has some really unique aesthetics to it,” says Madlyn Burkert, archivist, Lucasfilm, via blog post. “And it has some subtle ties to previous stormtrooper designs, which I think fans will enjoy discovering.”
The character’s debut is just one of many announcements from Comic-Con 2019. To stay up to date on the latest news from the event, check out our continuing coverage from the show floor.
