I have updated the pictures of the Death Star Troopers to new clearer pictures.

Nice! The DH-17s I sent you are being put to good use, hooray for accuracy!
Because my budget, or the lack thereof, won't allow it.QuoteIs there any trade demand for those?
lmao. im sorry that was just funny.
why dont you just army build those too? make a tantive scene, have a couple of good ol dead "rebelscum"
i actually think the head ball joint is one of the best things hasbro has to offer on their figures. it adds for a lot better poses. and if you dont think it looks "realistic" enough for you..then go the gentle giant.Not cost effective... and as far as the headball joint goes, that's just my opinion. It doesn't mean I'm right.
Actually I like the ball/socket joints Hasbro is using.
They make for a more natural looking pose if you're wanting the head tilted I think... Much more versatile, and definitely simpler than injection-molded ball/socket joints like Dutch Vander's. I don't think they all look bad, and actually I think very few have had an awkward look to them really. Usually I blame that on sculpt more than design. VTSC Han was I believe more odd due to the head's excessive shrinkage, more than anything.
His articulation at the torso was a little overdone too, but I think the rest of the figure is pretty decent and iwth the vest on he's quite nice. Take the arms/legs and sculpt up a new torso, and I'd be pretty happy I think.
I'm at my max of 37. Break down is: 32 to fill out a platoon of 36 (the other 4 being squad leaders represented by Tantive IV troopers,) 4 are custom Lts (Imperial rankings added to the armor) and 1 to stand in my Vintage/Modern counterpart display.
With 16 Tantive IV stormies, 59 VOTC Stormies and 37 Cleaned Saga Stormies I have a total of 148 Stormtroopers (including the 4 officers) making up 1 company of 4 of my official Imperial Battalion. Well over 210 if I included all my Commtech Stormtroopers and excess cleaned Saga Stormies I have up for trade.
In this case, I have no problem saying never. Hasbro doesn't seem fit to make the toolings for an AT-TE that most fans want, the tiny Cloud Car, and any number of vehicles that are much smaller in scale. Similarly, they refuse to make any screen accurate playset (or even another inaccurate one, for that matter). They site that public demand for new vehicles and playsets don't offset the cost of their toolings. Yes, in current Q&A's they say due to the success of the re-release of both the Shuttle & AT-AT, they will consider larger vehicles when the time is right. But, both of those are drastically underscaled and are both are considered large vehicles currently.
Would I like accurately scaled vehicles? Yes. Do I currently have the space for ones of the size you describe? No, but maybe again one day. Do I believe there are collectors that would buy them? Yes, but that doesn't mean there are enough collectors for Hasbro to warrent the investment. Whether you or I believe they could turn a profit (no matter how small), it really only matters what Hasbro believes and if they think it's worth it. I don't EVER see them making this, though I do believe it would be cool. I would be quite happy with one about 1.5 - 2 times the current size, which would place it within the size of Amidala ship. That was clearance out and still sold slowly (and probably more for the droid that was packaged with it).
