It's an interesting design, FWIW.  I'd actually been seeing rumblings that the new Stormtrooper design might actually be more in line with the original McQuarrie design.  Tom's sketch seems like it has hints of that as well as being a sleeker evolution of the OT Stormtrooper helmet.

Well, that should be the end of that then - we all know once you delete your post, it leaves the internet for good.

That guy may be the biggest oaf I have ever come across on the internet...I forgot and its in the thread above that he came here and registered in a fake name and cried about how the guy who shared them never intended them to be let out into the public and how people's jobs were at stake.

For the record, if Disney wants me to see anything, I can guarantee them I have no ability to relay accurately what I saw.  Verbal or via my artistic ability.

Everyone's seen the pictures of the Falcon's interior by now, yes, yes?

Yes. 

Shocking to see the Falcon hasn't been reupholstered.

New stormtrooper helmets will take getting used to but I like the freshness of the design.

I agree, they will take a little to get used to after having such a memory burned in of the original troopers - but that being said, they do look kind of cool.  Between these pics and the Falcon stuff the other day, I'm really starting to get excited at the prospect of Star Wars on the big screen again.  I hope we start getting some official stuff released, although I know the movie is still well over a year away.  Every time we see a pic like this, I still have to think "wow, this is really happening".

They look like ducks.

Why would there be stormtroopers anyway? I thought the Empire was destroyed. Are we talking about a hold out faction near a certain black hole maw facility?

You need to forget everything you know about the expanded universe.

It's all out the window.

I never personally looked at the possibility of one battle wiping out a "galactic empire".  EU aside it still is likely the war would've dragged on.  Han even says there are plenty of command ships when mentioning Vader on the Executor comes up but the executor is the only SSD at Endor.

The EU took the angle that the empire becomes fragmented but I'd think its possible it could actually rally and be stronger as a fighting force. 

The way the movies end everyone's just all giddy and everything is wrapped up nice and neat.  I always looked at the various SE scenes at the end of Jedi as, at the very least, spread over a Lon period of time as the planets were liberated or the majority revolted.   I'd think there are ample systems not happy at the outcome though.

I think if you're looking JUST at the movies, it's likely that Coruscant was still a major Imperial stronghold.  And that's despite the little add-on scene from the end of ROTJ.

And with these possible looks for Han Solo being revealed, it opens up that old question:  blue or brown?!?!?!
