I am 'really excited' to see the discussion over which detachment will home these guys. Design cues from Clones to Praetorians to Phasma..an FN base, perhaps in universe they are an elite force that would put them on Spec Ops radar. Lets hope we also see them ride speeder bikes and drive Walkers!

Yep Spec ops will snaffle this up for sure they are already discussing it

Anyone taking bets who'll come out with the costume first and how many times it will need to be revised for accuracy? lol
I'll wait a little longer this time


I’m sure Denis is busily updating his helmet.

There also two full kits currently in development.

One thing is for sure, it’s going to make a great Santa Trooper costume

Quick question: if this Trooper is the main infantry they wouldn’t really be Special Operations would they? If they were say Kylo’s special guard then I would say they are spec ops, if not, then I think they would stay here like the rest of the Stormtroopers. Just my two cents.

Yes, it would be SpecOps.  FISD is the home of white armor troopers (and painted white armor), using standard armor.  All colored troopers go to SpecOps, as well as those troopers that have customizations.  

 

In hindsight the Sky trooper for instance should be in SpecOps, and one could argue the same for Legacy Era and perhaps even the McQuarrie trooper.

Cool. Thanks for clarifying.

Well in all my costume prefixes I don't have a TX so suppose I'm looking at getting one now :laugh1:

 

It would have been nice though to see out the new trilogy films with the final Stormtrooper version falling under the FISD and TK designation, YER I know Spec Ops get's specialist troopers but it is still the base of a Stormtrooper.

 

Reading the Phasma comic yesterday and there's a Stormtrooper with the id prefix DB, I want to be a Dead Beat too :laugh1:

I've already begun work on a 3D model for the blaster, the second I caught a glimpse of it yesterday. Will see what I can cook up in the little free time I have. Doesn't look like there's any good images of the right side of the blaster for now so i'll be interested to see what the other side looks like in the future.
