Star Wars Previews Trooper Armor Exhibit, Sith Trooper Merchandise for San Diego Comic Con has shared a first look at the Trooper Armor display coming to San Diego Comic Con as well as the “Early Release Edition” of Sith Trooper products available during the event.

What’s happening:

  • At San Diego Comic-Con 2019 (SDCC), Lucasfilm will celebrate the history of stormtrooper design — and the future.
  • Fans attending the mega pop-culture event will be treated to a new exhibit of trooper armor from across the Star Wars saga.
  • This exhibit will feature a first look at the next evolution in Imperial/First Order soldiers: the “Sith trooper” from the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. It’s a modern and more menacing look befitting its namesake.
  • In addition to the display, fans will also be among the first to purchase “Early Release Edition” Sith trooper products debuting at SDCC (pictures below).

What they’re saying:

  • Madlyn Burkert, Lucasfilm archivist, who is co-producing the exhibit: “It has some really unique aesthetics to it. And it has some subtle ties to previous stormtrooper designs, which I think fans will enjoy discovering.”
  • Madlyn Burkert on ordering custom mannequins for the exhibit: “Most mannequins are made for fashion. With our armor, we need a different pose.”
  • Este Meza, Lucasfilm’s senior manager of events: “The stormtrooper itself is one of the most iconic parts of Star Wars. Seeing all of the pieces of armor together is very powerful.”
  • Madkyn Burkert: “We’re really excited to show this design history. It takes us from the beginnings of Star Wars and leads us right to the final chapter of the Skywalker saga.”
