If you haven’t already heard, Stormtrooper for the Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is getting a major makeover. Gone is the smooth white armor and in comes a fiery red angular getup. And oh, it won’t be called Stormtrooper anymore. It has gone full-on Sith and as such, hence forth it will be called Sith Trooper. I am not even making this up. Sith Trooper it is now. It is unclear if the makeover will improve the troopers’ aim.
Some of the toys and merchandise company have revealed the Sith Trooper-related products ahead of the San Diego Comic-Con (July 18-21), including Hasbro Black Series 6-inch Sith Trooper and Funko Sith Trooper Pop!. But nothing gave the most detailed look than Hot Toys Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker 1/6th Scale Collectible Figure.
Information regarding the Hasbro Black Series Sith Trooper and Hot Toys 12-inch Figure is not forthcoming, yet. But from the images posted by StarWars.com, we do know the Hot Toys’ collectible comes armed with a blaster, a few interchangeable hands and an official movie figure stand.

Well, fans, get ready for your wallet to be hurt, like real bad. But first, you must already secured the ticket to the San Diego Comic-Con to be able bag the aforementioned. Or you could wait for them to float into the market which I am pretty sure they will be soon enough, albeit not the Early Release Edition.
