Is This Our First Look At Some Of STAR WARS EPISODE VII's Stormtroopers?

Indie Revolver have two photos which apparently represent some of the Stormtrooper designs from J.J. Abrams' Star Wars Episode VII. Hit the jump for a possible first look at the new Stormtroopers, including one which has been dubbed as the "Jungle Trooper"...

According to the source in the link below, the design of trooper as seen in the first picture is being informally referred to as the "Jungle Trooper." It has earned this unofficial and unconfirmed nickname due to the design appearing in a sequence which takes place at the tree house set and around various Puzzlewood exteriors.








As seen in the image above, the trooper mouth piece appears to be made of a mesh that allows more air to pass through for the actors. And, according to IndieRevolver, the breathing hole/vent seen close to the chin is only on one side. It would seem that the Tom Hodges sketch that leaked earlier wasn't too far off. Does the new Stormtrooper look excite you? Do you think the larger visors will give the troopers better aim and a longer life expectancy? Leave your comments below and tell us what you think.

Not bad. Kinda like streamlined versions of some of the Johnston/McQuarrie sketches.

I want to be a stormtrooper now.

JJ don't get my hopes up with pretty costumes and designs and make a shitty movie!

It's so weird, part of me honestly doesn't want to embrace these changes. I love what I'm seeing, I love that we're getting more star wars, but something in me is saying, "but why can't it be like it used to be?", and "Why does it have to change, why can't I have what I had in the original trilogy?" I don't know maybe I'm alone in this, but I just get a really torn feeling looking at these.

Might be real, might not be.

DylansMyDog - 8/14/2014, 6:54 PM
@DennisW22 ok... go on :)

Pretty good
JoshWilding - 8/14/2014, 6:59 PM
Not entirely sure these are legit. The site (which I've never heard of) say that they "represent how some of the Imperial Forces will appear". Where are the images from then? A cosplayer who has told them that these are what they'll look like based on McQuarrie's designs or actual photos from the set? Nice find regardless. :)
blackandyellow - 8/14/2014, 7:01 PM
Nice find.
DylansMyDog - 8/14/2014, 7:02 PM
Ok @DennisW22 fair enough, but when you're ready to spill let me know

Looks cool. Like someone previously said,who's funding the creation of new tech for the empire? ; P
TheDirtyMexican - 8/14/2014, 7:12 PM
I'm not really a fan of Star Wars, but I'm finding myself getting more excited about this.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 8/14/2014, 7:15 PM
Stormtroopers still exist? What's their purpose?
AsgardianHobo - 8/14/2014, 7:17 PM
Holy Shit!!!!


@DARKKNIGHT

Good point. Shouldn't they all have been freed or something? Nah, lets keep using clone slaves.
batz11 - 8/14/2014, 7:18 PM
@dio

PIMP VADER is the source of $$$...

DylansMyDog - 8/14/2014, 7:20 PM
@AsgardianHobo I hope they disregard the clone stuff that was one of the many things the prequels messed up
batz11 - 8/14/2014, 7:22 PM
Still hoping for chictroopers...

AsgardianHobo - 8/14/2014, 7:26 PM
@Batz

They cloned the wrong gender originally! They all should have been hot, tattooed chicks. Those stupid bastards....
LordOfTheZegaRealm - 8/14/2014, 7:27 PM
Nice and sleek, I like it.
BANEofExistence - 8/14/2014, 7:27 PM
I love this new look!
AsgardianHobo - 8/14/2014, 7:31 PM
If you were making armor/camo to infiltrate any planet anywhere, would white be the best choice? ;)
AsgardianHobo - 8/14/2014, 7:34 PM
Maybe budgets ran short after their Hoth designs, so they just went with it.
NuclearMan - 8/14/2014, 7:35 PM
A natural progression from the original
dethpillow - 8/14/2014, 7:38 PM
looks good to me.

it's crazy how stormtrooper movie design and costuming was around in the 70s and we've only made things worse and worse.

and they costed probably about nothing for George Lucas to make back then.
but they looked crazy perfect.

compare that to Hydra in Cap TFA or the Dark Elves. and it's like "what happened?"

how is this possible?
Enki - 8/14/2014, 7:40 PM
Damn, they do have the look of the Ralph McQuarrie concept art.

I love it!!!!!
batz11 - 8/14/2014, 7:40 PM
@AH, exactly! lol
SuperCat - 8/14/2014, 7:41 PM
Love it. Nice find, @MarkyMark!
dethpillow - 8/14/2014, 7:42 PM
@AsgardianHobo - ha, well would helmets in the first place be the best choice when you're stationed in the Death Star? why do u need a helmet there? it's only gonna mess with your visibility and comfort while fighting, u know?

and like everyone says, why do they need armor at all when one shot will kill them? why not wear pajamas or something.
anyways, personally i'm glad the Empire always put style over substance, just as a member of the audience, but it is funny how mismanaged the Empire was.
