Promotional First Order Stormtrooper Poster Unveiled!

StormtrooperTwitter user Eric Patrick Cameron, AKA “TheSuperJedi” spotted this Star Wars promotional poster at with several First Order Stormtroopers at a nearby FYE store. There’s not really much else to say here, but be sure to click on the above image to see it in higher resolution.


You probably remember that a stormtrooper in the same pose was posted in the Celebration program back in April:



Not much has changed since 2005 in terms of promo posters. See the Revenge Of The Sith promo poster versus the promo for The Force Awakens. 🙂

      Wow, must have offended a lefty without a funny bone. All those posts got erased. Be aware, no freedom of speech here. Make sure you are PC (Politically Correct) to the max.

        Stay mad.

        Really? I’ve said some politically incorrect things and there was no problem. I went as far as calling diversity “nonsense”.

        • June 29, 2015 at 6:11 am

          Yep, someone didn’t like me talking about the stupidity of PC speech.

    you’re really scraping the barrel for star wars news now.

    • June 28, 2015 at 10:51 am

      Nothing to see here! Run along trooper! Your not as interesting solo versus Solo, the Harrison Ford difference! HOWEVER IT LOOKS GOOD FOR BACKGROUND PICTURE SELLING SUCH A TOY!

    • June 28, 2015 at 11:15 am

      Get over yourself. These people work extremly hard to bring us info every single day. They cant just create news. When theres nothing big released they do what they can to keep us fans happy. This poster is cool!

    • June 28, 2015 at 11:29 am

      Screw off man. I find this news awesome. I’m going to my F.Y.E. Tomorrow to see if I can get one. Stop thinking about yourself.

      I’d like to send out a HUGE thank you to the staff that runs this site. I’m thankful for everything you guys do and post. Keep up the excellent and informative work!!!

    • June 28, 2015 at 3:43 pm

      It’s 18th of December. The film is being released. There are still people with a false sense of superiority claiming that it’s not worth mentioning for some reason.

    • June 29, 2015 at 1:52 am

      Did you miss the part where we exclusively reported on Nien Nunb and Admiral Ackbar a little over a week ago, or our exclusive report on how Ken Leung has a small role in the movie? Because I’d like to think those are pretty far from the bottom of the barrel!

      Weekends are usually slow for the site. This is just a palate cleanser.

  • June 28, 2015 at 10:46 am

    so much like that armor

  • June 28, 2015 at 10:49 am

    Could’ve done without the Disney logo, but..
    cool, yeah.

    • June 28, 2015 at 11:12 am

      Agreed. That Disney logo could’ve been reduced to the same size of the words in the lower right corner of the poster.

    • June 28, 2015 at 12:59 pm

      I don’t know if I’ll ever get used to seeing that Disney logo.

      It’s interesting that it’s so prominent though. I would have expected the Lucasfilm logo to be there and Disney copyright stuff in small print at the bottom. It’s interesting that they are putting such a large stamp on it.

      I’m not into Marvel but I wonder if the Disney brand is so visible on their stuff?

      • June 28, 2015 at 1:43 pm

        If the Movie is Awesome…I’ll be “over” the Disney logo Real Quick!

      • June 28, 2015 at 9:52 pm

        This is probably for a store location or a Disney store. Marvel posters in some of those store have the Disney logo too.

        I bet the actual poster and banners for theaters will just have the Lucasfilm logo. Same goes for the trailers and the film.

        For the film, at the very end of the credits it will probably state it was release by Walt Disney Studios. Just like the end of some of the Marvel films (Iron Man 3).

    • June 28, 2015 at 3:50 pm

      I know… It’s like seeing Kermit the Frog play the roll of Yoda.

      • June 28, 2015 at 5:51 pm

        For me, Yoda was and will always be Miss Piggy.
        How come there’s no “Yoda and Piggy vs The World” team-up movie yet? Because that would be awesome.

        • June 28, 2015 at 11:09 pm

          Frank Oz did Yoda and Piggy. Kermit was Jim Henson.

    That is not a bad artwork but it isn’t overwhelmingly great either. It’s nothing I haven’t seen a thousand times before. Sure the new armor looks kinda cool, but these are supposed to be the bad guys of the movie and I find it hard to be that facinated by ruthless killers. The Disney logo looks kinda weird on that one indeed. I guess because we are used to seeing it in combination with cute or cheesy artwork.

    • June 28, 2015 at 5:44 pm

      I agree in some points.
      Stormrooper is amazing. this promotional poster is not bad but it’s the same photo we always see in simple modern posters. High quality photo in a colorful background.
      I say again: it’s not bad, but I prefer some originality, good classic illustrations. Or digital… There are som people who uses digital artwork to create great environments.

  • June 28, 2015 at 1:30 pm

    I know it was inevitable, but the Disney logo really ruins this poster for me… They should try to make it as subtle as possible, otherwise it ruins the aesthetic of the picture. Preferably no logo at all. Also, what are the chances that this is a fake? Why would disney let one rogue poster find its way into an FYE store?

  • June 28, 2015 at 3:53 pm

    Looks very CGI’ish and kiddie friendly.
    I call it garbage, sorry folks.

  • June 28, 2015 at 4:18 pm

    Cool poster.
    Shitty Disney tag.

    • June 29, 2015 at 12:11 am

      That tag makes me want to puke.

  • June 28, 2015 at 4:21 pm

    Maybe they could modify the Disney logo to be more honest and just put a $ in front of it.

  • June 28, 2015 at 4:37 pm

    I seriously hope we won’t have to endure a Disney tag in front of the actual movie. I love Star Wars, but feel that Disney, like Fox before it, is a pretty terrible company. I know people disagree, and that’s cool. They’ve done some good things (and some absolutely horrible things).

    While it won’t ruin a good film for me, I am hopeful they will allow the brand it’s own identity, similar to Marvel. It still makes me nervous seeing that ugly-ass swirly logo on an otherwise decent poster.

  • June 28, 2015 at 5:00 pm

    I didn’t know Darkwing Duck was a Stormtrooper. I like the original Stormtrooper look.

    • June 28, 2015 at 5:25 pm

      so original

  • June 28, 2015 at 5:56 pm

    I forgot that Revenge of the Sith poster with the Phase II 501st. That’s actually an interesting comparison.

  • June 28, 2015 at 6:36 pm

    That F”cking disney logo…

    • June 29, 2015 at 3:25 am

      You would rather have the 20th century fox logo huh you hack.

      • June 29, 2015 at 10:32 am

        Disney or not, without Lucasfilm logo it looks fake to me

  • June 28, 2015 at 7:43 pm

    Did someone accidentally use the wrong company logo on this poster?

  • June 28, 2015 at 7:46 pm

    Is Gizmoduck making a comeback?

  • June 28, 2015 at 8:21 pm

    Obviously fake. Yes it is photoshopped reused art from celebration. Yes, it’s on an extremely dumb fake looking background. And yes, it is a lame copy of Ep 3 poster. Plus, the Disney logo would not be that big. FAKE.
    Good looking fake but illogical! Just stop to think about it!

  • June 28, 2015 at 8:35 pm

    can they use a different pose?

  • June 28, 2015 at 9:09 pm

    That’s soooo lame, and Disney logo just covers the whole pile of sh*t. This is for kids, I only hope movie itself will be more……!

  • June 28, 2015 at 10:15 pm

    I always experience an acidic reaction upon seeing the Disney logo. Having it over top of Star Wars continues to be an unpleasant experience.

  • June 28, 2015 at 11:19 pm

    Now it looks ever more plasticky.

  • June 29, 2015 at 4:31 am

    I love Disney and am glad that they initiated this Star Wars re-boot. Did anyone notice that they seem to be coming out of a ship or At At in the back ground? Interesting.

    • June 29, 2015 at 7:49 am

      I would absolutely LOVE to see a Mickey Mouse crossover with Star Wars. It would be the best!

  • June 29, 2015 at 4:57 am

    Not sure if it’s real; I mean, it’s literally a paint-over of the Battlefront promo. But hey, if they sell it, I’m buying it. Don’t really care if it’s official or not.

    And I actually like the Disney logo, although I wish it was maybe 25% smaller.

    • June 29, 2015 at 10:43 am

      I wish it was 100% smaller.

  • June 29, 2015 at 5:54 am

    They took the image from the celebration program and did some photoshop editing on it. Neither bad nor great, just catchy. Black & white over red always works.

  • June 29, 2015 at 9:19 am

    Is it seriously thought that the Force Awakens will begin with a Disney logo? I really can’t see that. I hope I don’t see that…

  • June 29, 2015 at 12:40 pm


  • June 29, 2015 at 6:02 pm

    Disney logo ruins everything

    • June 29, 2015 at 6:32 pm

      Nothing a pair of scissors wont fix

  • June 29, 2015 at 6:31 pm

    I’d like it a lot more if the Disney logo blended into the poster better.

    • June 29, 2015 at 9:22 pm

      The Disney logo would have been cool if it was 100% transparent. (cough)

      • June 29, 2015 at 10:29 pm

        Well, we’d all prefer that, yes. But since this is the way it’s gonna be, they might as well make it a little less obvious. I mean, how much more publicity does Disney really need?

  • June 29, 2015 at 9:43 pm

    Some will disagree with me, but the Disney-ishness (is that a word?) of both ‘Rebels’ and this poster seem to indicate that Disney plans to Disney-ize a series that already has it’s own vibe and fan-base.

    I think they need to steer as far (far) away from this franchise as possible, creatively, or we’re looking at a rough decade for SW.

    I personally find the vast majority of Disney movies to be squeaky-clean, artless garbage. I get that George Lucas wanted to entrust his well-established brand to another well-established brand- but they need to save their logo for ‘Tinkerbell’ sequels and other phony, empty, kiddie pablum.

    • June 29, 2015 at 9:47 pm

      Either that, or just bring in ‘Herbie, the Love Bug’ and ‘the Cat from Outer Space’, and let’s get this party started!

      • June 29, 2015 at 9:50 pm

        Zippidy Doo Dah!!!

    • July 1, 2015 at 5:25 am

      I think that what people are forgetting is that—yes, whilst Disney owns Lucasfilm—it’s ultimately Lucasfilm who’s making this film, and at the head of TFA is K.K., J.J., and Kasdan. Disney isn’t making this movie. What their track record is has no bearing on the quality to expect from Abrams and Kasdan. Besides, studios rarely mess with scripts when they’re already golden. Kasdan and Abrams are both excellent writers and storytellers (I point you to Star Trek and Silverado). Don’t expect Lucasfilm or Disney to “ruin” it.

      • July 1, 2015 at 6:02 pm

        I agree with MOST of what you are saying, in substance.

        Except for this…
        “…studios rarely mess with scripts when they’re already golden.”

        What an ass-hat in a suit thinks is golden and what the rest of us think is golden is usually two very different things. Have you seen some of the garbage the big studios have released in the last few decades?

        And studios OFTEN interfere with movies, especially when they are fronting the cash.

        • July 8, 2015 at 5:21 pm

          @Anon: Yes, and I fully realize that. But that’s not my point. What I meant was that when a writer presents a truly excellent script, almost everyone will recognize that; even the studio. That’s why some movies get 90% critic ratings and 90% user ratings. Even studios ignorant of story-telling recognizes a brilliant script.
