It's because those guys might be members of the 501st.

There is no actual full suit of reproduction Stormtrooper armor on the general market; the 501st reserves the trade secrets to its members, who craft their armor as a rite of passage. Discussions they've had with the stars, including Mark Hamill, shows the 501st makes more wearable suits, better than the clunky ones they wore in Episode IV. Those were worn for a few hours of shooting, but 501st members walk around in that stuff all weekend at cons. Yeah it's still hot as hell to wear, but it's flexible, built as authentic as possible, but better.

Some friends of mine had a similar experience with the guy who plays Gowron (ST:NG Klingon) when he saw their Klingon armor.  Amazing how the fans will build something that is semi-functional, as opposed to what the official costumers make. ;)

Robert O'Reilly played Gowron. I don't know if you make it to cons at all, but just do a big one like Dragoncon a few years and you come to understand that you never, ever underestimate the power of fandom, especially where sci-fi/fantasy fans are concerned.

I purchased a Darth Vader Force FX saber this year at the con, and had it with me when I happened on a guy dressed as Capt. Jack Sparrow, who also had one (for some reason pirates with lightsabers tends to work). I took his picture and he proceeded to explain to me that the difference in the little power coupling doohickey on the upper side of the hilt varied between them because his was a Series II or something, and mine was a later Series IV. He also pointed out that between episodes IV and VI, the chain going about Vader's neck holding his cape was either silver or black, and specifically what color in each movie.

Now, A New Hope released when I was a little kid, and I thought I was a fanboy over the years, and had noticed the chain difference...not in which movies, but on that evening I was pwned and out-Star-Wars'ed severely. The fans will study all the details in a piece of canon equipment, and they'll reproduce it better than the stage props. For instance, there is allegedly a flaw in Clone Trooper armor in one of the new movies, IIRC a visor at the wrong angle, which made it on screen. Fan repros faithfully even duplicated this flaw.  :-\

I'm the proud owner of a 15-foot long hand-knit scarf, which is one more snowfall from being pulled out of the closet.  ;)  The power is indisputable.

The 501st ... now there are some crazy, crazy people - though they are not the only ones who make good stormie armour.

I'm still a fan of the cheesecake series of the stormie, the scout trooper, the TIE pilot ... even though wimmenz would never be in the Imperial forces, they look good in the outfits! :D

I just started knitting my own Doctor 4-esque stripped, 15 foot, scarf ^.^

I love how most people in these videos just ignore the fact that there are Imperials dancing in the streets... XD

What I coined as 'train face'. Ever ride a city train or subway and you know what I mean...there's always that one guy that tries to keep a straight face and avoid everything.

Then again, it looked like Tokyo.  After all the Godzilla movies, what kind of threat is a guy in a robot-looking suit?   ;D

Didn't one of them say it was in harajuku, which I think is the fashion district (or maybe just the chic district) of Tokyo?
