Is this another look at the stormtrooper designs for Star Wars: Episode VII?

Earlier this week design artist Tom Hodges posted a sketch of a stormtrooper helmet from STAR WARS: EPISODE VII, and many of you seemed unimpressed with the new look. Indie Revolver has what could be another look at the new stormtrooper designs, including one that is being referred to as the "Jungle Trooper." The site has "very reliable information" that the images are definitely for J.J. Abrams' new movie, but since these aren't official, take them with a grain of salt.

The first image does look a bit like Hodges' sketch, so there is a chance these images are for the new STAR WARS. In addition, a person who claims to be friends with someone close to STAR WARS: EPISODE VII has posted this image in a thread about Indie Revolver's report over at the Replica Prop Forum.

Personally, I think they look great, but like I said, it hasn't been confirmed if they're actually for the new movie. What are your thoughts on these possible new trooper designs?

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII will be in theaters on December 18, 2015.

old vs NEW Stormtrooper Helmets

well I gotta say that I actually like the evolution here, although I will miss the old designs, the new designs reflect a thirty year gap.... and hopefully there will be some flashbacks with the original helmets too...
NOT BAD

It likes a good evolution for the Storm Trooper helmet. I'm really liking these designs and I'm glad they are doing something new with this movie and not reusing all the old stuff from the Original Trilogy. It gives the new trilogy it's own look.

Yeah, I can go with that. It looks better than the beachcomber stormtropper with the raybans that you had up a couple of days ago. The one sketched by the 10 year old

I like it. Harkening back to the Ralph McQuarrie designs is a good strategy.

Yeah these look cool. An evolution from the original helmets, but still clearly stormtroopers.

I like the mix of the old school and new school design and approach.

Looks good and not too different from the original.
