In what appears to be a leak from a movie theater that received an early mailer, special collectible 3D Glasses will be coming to select theaters for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's release in December. The glasses are modeled after the visor portion of two Stormtrooper types, the standard white-suited troopers and the new jet-black special forces called the Death Troopers.

The glasses are manufactured by Look 3D and distributed by Master Image; Look 3D has worked with Disney before, including working with Lucasfilm on the collectible glasses created for Star Wars: The Force Awakens release last December, featuring the likes of Kylo Ren, the new First Order Stormtroopers, and BB-8. They each feature that recognizable visor design on hard plastic, with custom-shaped lenses and the Star Wars logo on the side - in black on the white glasses, in green on the black ones.

Collectible 3D glasses, sometimes given away for free at Midnight showings, sometimes available for purchase (the leaked retail sheet lists these at a suggested retail of $9-12, but that's often heavily discounted for those actually attending the movie - it's at the discretion of the theater), have become fairly common, particularly from Disney. Several Marvel Studios movies have offered up custom 3D glasses, like Tony Stark's sunglasses, an Iron Man and Captain America helmet-styled glasses, and others.

There's no word on what theater chains will be getting these glasses, or what their possible availability will be - it seems from the leaked mailer that those questions have not yet been answered by the chains themselves. However, Master Image has distribution set up for Americas, Europe, and Asia, so fans around the world at least have the potential of these collectibles coming home with them.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters December 16, 2016. Directed by Gareth Edwards, it tells the story of Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) and a band of Rebels that stole the original Death Star plans, as first mentioned in the opening crawl of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. It is the first of the new standalone films that take place outside of the primary "Saga" denoted by episode numbers. Though the standalone films won't revolve around the Skywalker family, Darth Vader will appear in Rogue One as a secondary antagonist.
