The big Star Wars rumor swirling about the Internet this week is that some Stormtroopers will appear in Episode VII with a major makeover. Folks, we think you can do better. Use your image editing skills to dream up the Stormtroopers you'd like to see in the next movie.

The Emperor is long dead, but there are still Stormtroopers—or soldiers like them—stomping about the Galaxy. Taking a cue from our sister site Kotaku and their wonderfully fun 'Shop Contests, we're asking you to come up with your own Stormtrooper redesigns. Entries don't need to be based on the photo above (although they can be), but they should be your own work.

When you're done, upload your brilliant Stormtrooper image in the comments. We'll announce the winners on Monday!
