While legions of Star Wars fans await the latest film’s Hall H presentation at San Diego Comic Con 2015, you can get some detailed looks at the new Stormtroopers thanks to these toy images. Inspired by the redesign of the iconic outfits, these new toys are just the first snowflake atop the iceberg of merchandise that will roll out between now and the December 18th release date (and beyond, certainly). Toy versions of Daisy Ridley’s desert-dweller Rey, Oscar Isaac’s brash pilot Poe Dameron, and fan-favorites Han Solo and Chewbacca are sure to be waiting in the x-wings, but for now, it’s the First Order Stormtroopers.

Remember when John Boyega unmasked himself as one of these soldiers in the trailer? Apparently, this is the team he belongs to, though little else about them is confirmed at the moment, except that they’ll appear in The Black Series edition. The six-inch figure and its packaging will be a Comic-Con exclusive, with a limited number available on HasbroToyShop.com after the convention, with an estimated price tag of $24.99

Then there’s the LEGO version of the Stormtrooper, comprised of over 80 separate pieces that combine to form a nine-inches tall, posable figure. Fans will have to wait until January 1, 2016 to buy their own, but both the toy version and a life-size figure made from traditional blocks will be on display at Comic-Con. And what set of Star Wars toys would be complete without a Hot Wheels racer?
