STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER Unveils Our First Look At The Sith Trooper Ahead Of SDCC

The first official merchandise for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker has now been unveiled ahead of San Diego Comic-Con, and it focuses on a new breed of Imperial Stormtrooper known as the Sith Trooper...

With San Diego Comic-Con set to kick-off next week, Lucasfilm has given fans an early glimpse of the latest form of Imperial fighter to menace the galaxy far, far away: the Sith Trooper.

The character design was unveiled via a range of official merchandise over on StarWars.com, and, as you can see, the armor closely resembles that of the First Order Troopers while sporting the menacing red hue of Snoke's Praetorian Guards (or The Emperor's Royal Guards, if you prefer) from The Last Jedi.

The name "Sith Trooper" is very interesting, as it would seem to suggest that these formidable-looking fellows will be utilized as guards for the returning Emperor Palpatine. Might they also have some connection to the Dark Side of The Force, perhaps?

Check out the merchadise images below, and let us know what you think of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker's Sith Trooper in the comments.
