New Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Shoretrooper image hits the net


Star Wars Celebration Europe in London is about to kick off tomorrow with a 3 day spectacular event for the ages. Just like last years Star Wars Celebration, a few new images are starting to appear on the net. Read on for more!


In the past hour, a new image has appeared on Reddit.com via a Instagram user named work22. The image appears to be a photo of the reported Shoretrooper character that will debuted in the new spin-off ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’.


Late last year, actor Donnie Yen took to Instagram to reveal three Stormtrooper helmets from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. He’s since deleted his post, but next to the traditional Original Trilogy-era design was two new alternatives… The first alternative was the Death Trooper and the second now looks to be the Shoretrooper. The Shoretrooper also leaked a few weeks back in a now reportedly cancelled ” Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Official visual story guide.


Stormtrooper Helmets


Not much is known about them but obviously they are probably going to play a vital role in the new spin-off film. Shoretroopers seem to be some of the newest iterations of stormtrooper due to be introduced in the new ‘Rogue One’ film. Glad to see more imperial trooper variations implemented into the new canon because I loved the prequel/Clone Wars trooper variations as well!


Check it out!

    My favorite trooper type is a scout trooper and this looks like a macho version of it. I’m game

    • Smullie_1138

      That,and it screams used future. Judging by that armor, those troops have been places.

  • SonOfConstantDiligence

    Pretty flippin sweet if I say so myself.

  • Mr_Crankypants

    Cool, but…how is he holding that E11 in the illustration?

    • Luis Petrizzo Rengel

      The hand is behind his holster, look carefully.

      • Mr_Crankypants

        No, the first image. His trigger hand is signalling, clearly, but he’s sort of resting the butt of the blaster on his chest, while holding the thing with his left hand by the still folded stock. It’s a weird image as 1) to do that, he would really need to have the stock unfolded (it’s not) and 2) Wouldn’t it be easier to signal with his other hand, while still holding the E11 by the grip?

        • Luis Petrizzo Rengel

          Nice to hear!

    • Steven

      Finger is on the trigger.

    • John Crichton

      Assuming you meant the first image (movie poster?), looks to me like he’s resting the butt on his chest. Possibly for a signal, though I’m not sure why he’s “reversed” it in a sense. Maybe he threw something and thus needed use of his dominant hand.

      • Mr_Crankypants

        That’s a pretty good explanation…actually the only one I can think of that makes sense.

        • John Crichton

          I also noticed in some of the other shots somewhere (probably in another article) that these aren’t standard blasters like pictured in the second image. The barrels are a whole lot beefier. Not sure how that’d play into the handling.

          • Mr_Crankypants

            They’ve got what looks like a flashlight attached to the barrel, but otherwise they’re sterling smg-based e11s, so that’s not the explanation.

      • Ryan Tomes

        I mean could it look anymore like he’s about to throw something?! Durr

  • Kenny Ritchie

    Canon fodder.

  • Melike

    LOVE IT.

  • The design in Rogue One looks the best yet. So spot on. Makes me now think half the design on TFA wasn’t all that

    • Ryan Tomes

      Or the fact that it was an obvious way to try to detach from the empire. It’s 30 years after, NOT the empire and was meant to be a clean contemporary look. Like they were the only ones thriving in any kind of way after the war. Or that they are attempting to look as if they’re thriving. To me it seems exactly what the Empire represented, at least what they could come up with back when it was made.
