One of the traits of Star Wars is that it has cool looking characters. Darth Vader? Boba Fett?
We have some nice pictures from Indie Revolver, first you’ll see how the Chrome Troopers of the new movie look like. As far as I know, this is going to be in the movie. Then, there’s some concept art for the film, I’m not sure about that, but it sure looks good. That’s a beautiful piece of concept art. The guys at Indie Revolver added the following before dropping the picture:
For months, there have been reports of chromed stormtroopers in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII, but those closest to the production have been extremely tight-lipped in regards to this new variant. We’re finally seeing our first glimpses of this new armor’s look:
Then, for the other picture they state:
As exciting as pictures of a real-life Falcon constructed at full scale have been, seeing it in a story context hovering over a lightsaber battle in a forest is magical – even just in illustration. The tall, slender figure is instantly reminiscent of Vader, though it could easily represent the new hooded cyborg or Lupita Nyong’o’s rumored sith villain. Dare we hope that it’s Luke wielding the green saber? The person in the foreground taking aim at the confrontation would either be a good guy or a bounty hunter by every Star Wars metric – lots of texture in the costuming, rag tag gear strapped on everywhere, and operating alone (or with one friend, who appears to be busy) rather than as part of a larger force.
