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

Third Stormtrooper from the left: "Aren't you a little short for a Stormtrooper?"

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

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.

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...

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

Lots of impressionable readers out there.

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

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

Only imperial stormtroopers are so precise...

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

BTW Mod, Imperial Stormtroopers, no small s on the stormtrooper, proper noun 'en all that.

Aren't they a little short to be Stormtroopers?

No surprise the guy on the right is at the front of the audience.......

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.

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

George Lucas is sure riding on Star Wars until he can't ride no more !!!!!

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

George Lucas will than release a 3D version this year or next year again !!!!
