I'm diggin' it. Indie Revolver updated their post with another image of the helmet. Apparently, RPF -- a site dedicated to replicas of movie props -- have a prop image of the new Stormtrooper helmet:
Overall, it's a much-needed update to the classic Stormtrooper helms we were raised on, and it looks like it belongs in the Star Wars universe.
