New Episode VII stormtroopers revealed!

Indie Revolver recently posted pictures of the new Star Wars: Episode VII-era stormtroopers and snowtroopers. Though these photos are not 100% confirmed to be accurate, it does seem to signify that stormtroopers will appear in the film, in some fashion.

The new stormtroopers have a more modern and sleek look. The visor is now connected to the nose-mark on each side, and the air ventilators near the mouth are much smaller. You can look at the image below to see the evolution of clone/stormtrooper armor, provided by RebelForce Radio:
Additionally, an image was released of possible snowtrooper armor. This is very similar to the armor briefly used by clone troopers in the Star Wars: The Clone Wars episode "The Lost One". 

The appearance of snowtrooper armor at all is a huge hint that some of the movie will take place on a snowy planet. Hoth is the first thing that comes to mind, but another viable option is Ilum (I-L-U-M). Ilum is also a cold planet, and it bears significance to the Jedi Order. The crystals found in the caves of Ilum are a necessity to the construction of Jedi lightsabers. Perhaps some of Han and Leia's children and/or Luke's children, will go to Ilum to build their first lightsabers. 

What do you think of the new stormtrooper helmets? Tell me in the comments, and may the force be with you.
