If you look close enough you can notice a notable difference between the FO helmets in the movie and how EA presented them in pictures for the game.

    The game version isn't mesh where the "mouth" is. its lined and segmented like original troopers

    zoom up on the mouth of the game's version to see difference.

    Zoom up on the picture from the game. look at the right guy its easier to spot. you see where the spot that looks like the troopers mouth? it has the classic look of the lines (the grey ones in the picture you showed me) its subtle but its kind of weird.. don't know if it means anything. Tell me if you notice it.

  • We have other things to worry about in this game and we're seriously talking about helmets? Helmets!
  • It's because they changed the look for The Last Jedi. Kinda like how Kylo's scar was purposely changed because Rian Johnson thought the one in TFA looked ridiculous.

  • Now they don't look so chubby. They still look like gummy bears.

    If you zoom in on the FO troopers helmets in the screenshot, you can see that they still have the "grill" that was on the the Imperial Stormtroopers helmets, when they're not supposed to have those. It's supposed to just be a mesh lining. The trooper on the right shows it best.

    Only because you pointed out, it but I can see it quite clearly now that you've mentioned it.

    Wait, so you're saying that with a time-skip of exactly 0 minutes between TFA and TLJ that all FO Stormtroopers have now suddenly got different helmets? Well that's going to be a nightmare for all the cosplayers and replica manufacturers to deal with, isn't it?

    You youngsters and your fresh eyes. I see it now. Definitely more noticeable on the right trooper from the explosion reflection.

    I'm just getting old apparently. But don't you worry....I still got it where it counts.
