In Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Empire has now transformed into the First Order, and the Rebellion is now known as The Resistance. And with these changes comes new costumes for both the X-Wing Pilots and the Stormtroopers. Which, let's all agree, greatly helps the sales of Star Wars action figures and other related merchandise. With Star Wars Celebration going on this weekend, the Anaheim convention center has built a loving shrine to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, where they are showing off costumes and props from the new movie. We've collected some of the fan photos, which reveal two new stormtroopers. The new and improved Snowtrooper. And the never-before-seen Flametrooper, who was first introduced on a poster released yesterday.
Also included in this epic exhibit is Sith villain Kylo Ren's lightsaber hilt. We get to see both Rey and Finn's full costumes. The new droid BB-8 has been put on display for the world to see. And we get a close-up look at the new Stormtroopers. The exhibit also explains exactly what these new Stormtroopers are used for in the movie. Take a look:
First Order Flametrooper: Specialized Stromtroopers of the First Order. Flametroopers carry incendiary weapons that can transform any battlefield into an infernal blaze.
First Order Snowtrooper: The latest generation of cold weather assault Stromtroopers, Snowtroopers wear advanced insulated armor and helmets that reduce the glare of icy terrain.
