These guards are called Elite Praetorian Guards and they all have different weapons like nunchucks or double-bladed fighting sticks. They all have different helmets and fabric ornamentation but the core armour set on the chest and the arms appeared to be the same to me. The chest and the arms being the same really gives them all sameness while allowing them to have some individuality. They also have red boots on that is obscured on the particular guard.

Meanwhile, Star Wars icon Mark Hamill came up with clarifications regarding his statement about disagreement with director Rian Johnson. The actor revealed that he is pretty satisfied with the way his character Luke Skywalker is being portrayed in the movie.
"I was quoted as saying to Rian that I fundamentally disagree with everything you decided about Luke, and it was inartfully phrased. What I was, was surprised at how he saw Luke. And it took me a while to get around to his way of thinking, but once I was there it was a thrilling experience. I hope it will be for the audience too," Hamill told Variety.
