    It's a machine that prints hundreds of millions of dollars for him. Who wouldn't keep going back to it?

    And they are all carrying blasters. "Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid." - Han Solo

    If I could have predicted what kind of dude was up the front it would have been him - to a tee.

    Japanese men would be great stormtroopers. Thin build for the suits, great at standing in a line and would get beaten up by an Ewok.

    Aren't they a little short to be Stormtroopers?

    Except when it comes to shooting Rebel scum. If the Stormtroopers were so precise how come any Rebel is still alive?

    They let us go. It was the only reason for the ease of our escape.

    Time to put away the Stormtrooper costumes. Star Wars is played out. It died in 1997.

    A bit misleading...should read "Men dressed in Imperial Stormtrooper cosutmes..."

    Lots of impressionable readers out there.

    I would so much rather receive an imperial stormtrooper costume like the ones in the picture than another over-priced, slightly improved or special effects-laden "Star Wars" release...

    If those outfits didn't cost near $2000 I'd buy one. Can't justify spending that much just for Hallowe'en and/or pranks, though.

    Yeah, cool costumes. Though the guns really do look sad. Don't think I noticed that before.

    Um, folks? Since their defeat, they are no longer called "Imperial Stormtroopers". They are now known as the "Galactic Self-Defense Force", or GSDF.
