Star wars Instagram posted this. behind the scenes apparently. Definitely not from 1977. Probably rogue one helmets. Look at them eye holes

Nice to see that my OT kit won't be put out to pasture anytime soon. :D

Looks like hes trimming the kidney plate with the butt plate.. all one piece!

That's because they are based on ROTJ suits.

 

Nice photo. I never get tired of seeing this kind of stuff.

Where are the high brows? Looks like we're going to be swarmed with low brow helmets only...

Yes, but the kidney notch is there! 

Just kidding I'm sick by just staring at that single back armor...

I'm guessing that with the boots, they were simply reusing the dozens and dozens of pairs of white boots left over after filming the Force Awakens.

Pi had heard Rogue 1 was timelines between EP V and Vi ... Not just before IV ... The timeline between III and IV was clone wars tv series, was it not?

I believe Clone Wars was between II & III, and Rebels is between III & IV.

So they've done something between prequels already... Rogue One, if they're doing armour like ANH and ROTJ, seems to fit between V and VI...

Some more observations about the original pictures. Some parts of these almost look like FX armor, especially the very rounded tops of the shoulder bells, the overlap of the back and kidneys, and the strap connecting the chest and the back. Other stuff like the narrow cod piece, I've never seen before. And, the drop box stuck in the thigh armor is just funny. :)

I seriously hope these are not the real stormtrooper costumes they are using in the movie. It's like they took armor making back 15 years. More of it seems similar to FX armor than to any of the current fan made kits. (And then they assembled them poorly.)

Finaly some nice trooper costumes. Looks 1000 times better to my eyes as this TFA stuff.

Nice to see they do it this way.

That's how a trooper should look. OT Style!

You just need to be an on set consultant and get them where they need to be. I know this movie is suppose to take place right before ANH, but I don't think the transition from Clone Troopers to OT troopers needs to be this sloppy. They look like they have a mix of FX/AM2.0 armor that was not even bothered to tailor to the wearer.

I like OT armors more than anything. But these are looking weird. Really waiting to see more pics.

I do not like this at all. Too bad they are messing with it :(

It would have been so easy for their production team to tap the dozens of 501st members who have vast knowledge of the OT armor. Even if they wanted to change it afterward, it would have been a great place to start.  What a huge missed opportunity.

They could also be engaging in disinformation... They would not be the first to do so... Keeping the masses on their toes.
