Indierevolver.com shared the images online for the first time on Thursday. The first image is clearly for modernized version of a stock-issue Stormtrooper helmet. Consensus seems to be that the second image is an updated Snowtrooper helmet.
The helmet designs jive with the information that website Making Star Wars shared on June 17. They also mesh conceptually with what J.J. Abrams did with with the U.S.S. Enterprise in his Star Trek reboot. The new designs are modernized and slick, and their identities are unmistakable.
Between these images and the picture of Mark Hamill rocking the Jedi beard, this has been a damned good week for Star Wars fans.
This is the best gif you’ll ever see
