Stormtrooper Helmet From Star Wars Episode VII Now Seems Pretty Well Confirmed


501st Legion

I shared an image on our social media last night taken from a site I’d never heard of; an image that purported to be the new Stormtrooper helmet from Star Wars Episode VII.

Well, when the 501st Legion, who are pretty much the official cosplayers of Star Wars, share it, that basically confirms it’s legit. So what do you think?

I’m not crazy about the idea that the Empire are still the villains. I’ve seen some potentially huge spoilers on other sites today, but I’m not going to share them here. The take-home, though, as this affirms, is that the Empire is around in some form. That said, if we’re going there, I like the design – reminds me of a yellowjacket wasp up close.
