Couldn't see a Captain Phasma thread so here it is:

Who's picking up this figure?

I already have the BS one and I'm an opener so no need for this. Had they given her a SG cape and included TLJ staff I'd be all over it.

They could have at least given us the TLJ staff since they already released it in the 5 POA one with Finn. I think even with that inclusion, I may be tempted enough to get it.

However, I may decide to get one and paint it up as that gold First Order Stormtrooper Officer from that new animated series.

The card clearly states The Force Awakens so I wouldn't expect the staff or battle-damaged helmet.

Hasbro can milk us down the line with a TLJ version that includes those.

Very excited for this lass, she’ll look GREAT on a shelf with Kylo and the FO Stormtrooper MOC

Pass for me, but cardback is a plus in that they didn't use some goofy photoshopped portrait for this one.

I may, I already have two of the BS ones but I sometimes stash back good looking on card ssamples to open later when the boys and I wear out a figure.

Pass..never liked the character or portrayal in the two silly films. Plus I have the BS release which is fine, not paying another 13-15 bucks for another.

Nope.... it's a pass for me. I already have close to 15 Phasma's .... plus her character was weak in both TFA and TLJ..

Damn dude, is that all from various 5 poa releases or did you just get that many TBS versions cause that's how you roll? I could see taking the capes off and making a unique silver FO specialist ST squad out of her.

This is one that I was so psyched to finally obtain back in the TBWM line. Such a nice figure. Unfortunately any interest I had in it was kinda decimated by TLJ and it's been demoted to a baggie and storage bin. If I come across a really good deal on this VC one down the road I'll get it for my cardback collection - but I can live without it.

Wow, what'd you do to make her shiny/weathered like that?

I never bothered with the shiny paint, cause she'd be outve place next to the paint apps of the Naboo Royal Starship or Starfighters - she's supposed to have armor made from the same material.

Yes, exactly and I am talking about the toys. Phasma blends in and matches the paint apps of the vehicles which were not coated that way.

If only they made her look more chrome. I'd buy it again if it were chromed. Sadly, they can't/won't do it anymore.
I remember at SWC19, I mentioned that to one of the Hasbro guys.

The person I spoke to said at the time, they didn’t have the tooks to vacuum-metallize Phasma.

Yeah that's the one reason I wasn't too interested in this figure, it not looking chrome but a matte silver/gray color. If they ever happen to ever revisit this figure I hope they tool a new non helmeted head sculpt this time around.

I know.

It's like somebody tried to come up with a story point that was more lame than Episode 8.

And succeeded. :unsure:

It's also completely superfluous and goes unmentioned in the films. Otherwise we should also shame Vader's armor for being polished with woodoo hide and fitted in the recently christened Emperor Palpatine Surgical Reconstruction Center. At the same time, it's supposedly made on a shoestring budget and full of pain-inflicting elements Palps never bothered to smoothe out, because pain=darkside=stronger?

Sometimes it's a good thing these elements stay unmentioned.

Hate? No. Disappointed is better. I love the duel with Finn.

She was never meant to be anything more than what she was. Boba Fett did next-to-nothing in the OT yet fans still worshipped him because he looked cool.

Blame the marketing department that hyped Phasma up as some amazing character when in reality her entire role was meant to be “stormtrooper leader with easily identifiable outfit”.
