Rumor: Episode VII Chrome Trooper Revealed

It's been a full week without any Episode VII leaks, but just when things were getting quiet, Indie Revolver has struck back with this alleged photo of an Episode VII stormtrooper.

Fans of the original trilogy trooper design will be glad to see that this helmet appears to retain the classic proportions. It’s wide, where the new white troopers have a surprisingly narrow face when seen from the front (in line with Ralph McQuarrie’s design sketches for ANH). The chrome trooper also includes the classic stormtrooper frown instead of a floating nose plate.

The chrome troopers do not actually wear a hood or covering in the film. The metal collar stands up from the torso armor and curves up on the sides before dipping down again at the back.

This goes along with earlier rumors this year that there would be multiple types of stormtrooper armor in Episode VII.

UPDATE: Indie Revolver has since added another image to their article. This time it's leaked concept art, that they claim was drawn by Doug Chiang.
