San Diego Comic-Con is upon us! And with 2015 being called The Year of Star Wars, the hype for Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens is real!

In an article published on Business Insider, Kirsten Acuna shows us our first look at the special edition item that Hasbro will be showing at SDCC. The First Order Stormtrooper will be a part of the 'Star Wars: The Black Series.' Let's take a look!

For those having trouble reading the description, here it is:

Shock troopers clad in white armor first appeared on the Galactic stage during the opening battles of the Clone Wars. Clone Trooper armor became iconic almost immediately: its stark white design stood for hope that peace and stability might be restored to a galaxy at war. But this dream of peace died with the republic, and the empire that rose to take its place imposed order by any means necessary. Soldiers within the grand army of the republic were given a new name: Stormtroopers. as these former protectors of galactic peace mercilessly crushed resistance across the galaxy, their white armor came to symbolize oppression and the indomitable power of the Emperor's will. Yet the tyranny of imperial rule sparked rebellion, and the Stormtrooper legions were scattered in the aftermath of the Empire's fall. Now, the rise of the First Order ushers in the next chapter in the Stormtrooper's legacy as a new era of ruthless brutality begins.

The box also includes four small books that describe the history of Stormtroopers as described on the side of the box.

Phase 1 Clone Trooper

The description reads:

From its earliest appearance during the Clone Wars, the iconic white armor of the Clone Trooper symbolized galactic peace and stability. Its design reflected the stark aesthetic of its Kaminoan creators, but it also drew inspiration from the Mandalorian shock trooper armor worn by clone template Jango Fett. Although Phase I armor offered superior protection in combat, it was uncomfortable to wear, particularly while seated.

Phase 2 Clone Trooper Armor

The description reads:

Phase II Clone Trooper armor featured numerous improvements to the earlier Phase I design. Significantly more comfortable, it also supported a wide array of modifications that allowed Clone Troopers to customize their armor for specific combat roles and situations. These variations also allowed Clone Troopers greater freedom to express their unique and independent personalities through the appearance of their armor.

Phase 3 Stormtrooper Armor

The description reads:

With the rise of the Galactic-Empire, the clone army was reorganized and renamed. Although veteran Clone Troopers continued to serve as Imperial Stormtroopers, many were retired right away. Only a few were kept on to train new recruits. The Stormtrooper Corps brutally enforced Imperial doctrine across the galaxy, and the white armor that had once stood for peace and stability became a symbol of terror and oppression.

Phase 4 First Order Stormtrooper Armor

The description reads:

Equipped with sleek armor and powerful weapons, the Stormtroopers enforce the will of the First Order.

As you can tell by the description, Disney is keeping everything 'Episode VII' related a secret. We will most likely learn about the new Stormtrooper at SDCC or after the release of Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens on December 18, 2015.
