Images that seem to reveal a new Stormtrooper helmet design have been leaked online through Indie Revolver.
The images, which are said to have come from a reliable source, draw inspiration from the original Ralph McQuarrie concepts and build upon the classic Stormtrooper look of the original trilogy to bring a more modern and up to date feel to the Imperial soldiers we already know.

Star Wars Expanded Universe Timeline
Check out the timeline! It's still under construction!
In the continuity of the Star Wars saga there are eight clearly defined eras into which every story fits, and you can see these listed below.
The earliest stories occur Before the Republic, and tales of the Sith Wars and Jedi Civil War take place during the Republic era. The time of the Star Wars prequels are nestled within the Rise of the Empire era, which comes to an end with the Battle of Yavin and the start of the Rebellion era. After the fall of the Empire comes a New Republic, but the galaxy is changed again when the Yuuzhan Vong invade the galaxy at the start of the New Jedi Order era. The future is unclear, but many tales have already been told in the Legacy era...
The final publishing category is Infinities, which are often alternate universe or other stories considered non-canon. We currently have not included these stories in our timeline.
As new stories are always being added, this is a continuous work in progress, so if you spot a mistake or omission please let us know!
