Is That The Wrong Stormtrooper On Marvel's Adaptation Of Star Wars: The Force Awakens?

But the design of the Stormtrooper is an intriguing one. The eyespace in the helmet is closer to the current design of the movie Force Awakens Stormtrooper, but everything else, separate serrated mouth line, and the design of the leg and boot is utterly the design from the original trilogy rather that the new film.

Will this be amended for publication? Of is the adaptation of the movie going for a sense of nostalgia even more than the film?
