The trick with increased shielding is the increased mass of the spacecraft. Launch operations and general propulsion are intrinsically tied to the mass of the spacecraft. A magnetic shield may be less massive than shield plating with a traditional material like lead, but could potentially interfere with onboard instrumentation.
Does protection from radiation fall under life support?
If five different companies can do 6" figures I don't see why another company can't step up and make properly scaled "SW vehicle collectibles" that are actually representative of the onscreen source material.
Hasbro can keep making their ****** under scaled Nerf toys, and we collectors can get stuff like The Ghost and Kylo Ren's shuttle that actually go with the figures we buy. WIN WIN!
I'm just spitballing here, I know all the factors that would combine to make this highly improbable. But I would be more than happy to shell out $100 or more for a quality Ghost, even if I had to have it shipped from Japan.
