Lucasfilm has unveiled a new Sith Trooper design that will make its film debut in December's Rise of Skywalker - but it'll be landing on Earth next week for Comic-Con International: San Diego.

In full Disney style, an array of Sith Trooper merchandise is scheduled to debut at SDCC this year. Described by the studio as "the next evolution of Imperial/First Order soldiers," these Sith Troopers merge the classic Stormtrooper design with the Imperial Royal Guard outfits.

"It has some really unique aesthetics to it,” said Lucasfilm archivist Madlyn Burkert. "And it has some subtle ties to previous stormtrooper designs, which I think fans will enjoy discovering."

The Sith Trooper will be one of nine different Star Wars costumes on display at SDCC's Lucasfilm booth #2913, including: Imperial stormtrooper, TIE pilot, death trooper, shoretrooper, biker scout, First Order stormtrooper, First Order TIE pilot, and Captain Phasma.

Sith Trooper merchandise scheduled to debut at SDC includes a Geeki Tiki, a Mini Muglet, Fifth Sun t-shirts, a Funko Pop!, a Hasbro Black Series figure, a hat, a pin, a 1/6 scale Hoy Toys figure, a Loungefly backpack, a Rubi's kids costume, a trading card set, and a bookmark.
