See How Much Different Star Wars 7's Stormtroopers Will Look Here
From Cinema Blend
The design of the Stormtrooper has enjoyed several tweaks through the first six Star Wars movies, from the clean-cut white-and-black appearance in A New Hope to the color enhancements brought in for the digital prequels and the new Clone Wars TV shows. And if the following images are accurate, the Stormtroopers will look quite different for J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII, as well.
Maybe we’ll have to start calling them "Chrome Troopers," based on the images shared on Indie Revolver, a site that has brought interesting visual scoops over the course of Episode VII’s production schedule. These reportedly are concept images of the design of the new Stormtroopers. They look metallic, with a reflective surface that could look amazing if, say, a lightsaber glow is reflected back in the Trooper’s face. The hood is a new addition for any sort of Stormtrooper that we have seen to date, though the site claims, "The chrome troopers do not actually wear a hood or covering in the film. The metal collar stands up from the torso armor and curves up on the sides before dipping down again at the back."
Truthfully, this looks more like Doctor Doom than a character in a Star Wars movie!
