Are you having trouble finding some of them? My TRU has a ton of each, so I am not worrying, but is it like an area thing? Or does it depend on the Walmart? Just seems strange they wouldn't give a plentiful amount of stock to each store.Yes, I only hope it actually gets to Wal-Mart stores unlike some of the current ones. I will be picking her up for sure.
Seriously. After seeing the movie, I no longer care one whit about this figure/character.My two conditions for buying this figure:
1) Legit shiny armor
2) The character is retroactively made to actually do something in the movie
Sooo... guess I won't be buying this one. B)
Agreed! Which is why I've held off buying the 5POA version so far, in hopes that he was right around the corner. IMO, it is Luke, Han, Leia that deserve SA representations. Not these secondary death scene nominees.It's funny-- I'd rather have a SA Hux than Phasma at this point.
URL’s for ALL Walmart Black Series Figures?Where was it confirmed that they are releasing another wave?
Of course, I suppose there'll be another Phasma figure by that time. Ooh! Or maybe 3D printing will be cheap and easy enough that the metallic armor will be achievable! Combined with a better on-screen character! All my wishes may come true!Just wait until the second movie.
Or you will have the Artfx and Bandai versions available, higher quality and probably for cheaper than what scalpers will ask for the Hasbro version on ebay.Of course, I suppose there'll be another Phasma figure by that time.

I liked Phsama. Yeah her part was shorted in the film but her armor looks awesome. I am looking forward to this one.
That is exactly what I was thinking but knowing Hasbro's tendency to skimp on tooling I bet the just make a longer shin or something and the fan outcry will be heard from space... is the helmet exactly the same? I don't think hers has the light in the left cheek.I would imagine she would have to be an all-new mold as she should be taller than the standard stormtrooper.
Yeah I'm not sure why so many people require Phasma to be some crazy awesome character to justify buying the toy. There are countless characters in the Star Wars universe that did virtually nothing in the films that people still clamor over. /QUOTE]
Yes, because those characters actually have a cool design. Instead of some boring silver armor. That's fine if you like it, but don't knock other people for having different tastes in what they want from their figures.
Personally I love the obscure background Aliens/characters more than most of the ones that are in your face. And take up most of teh screen time. I don't need the character to have some Awesome back story, or to do the craziest thing on screen for me to like them. I like interesting and detailed designs. Something that no doubt took some time to refine. Not update take a 30 years old Stormie design, and spin it with edginess.
Did the 6" Asty share the same body as Poe? Did the 6" Phasma share the same body as the Stormtooper? Did any of 3.75" 5 POA figures share parts?Is the armor different enough to have its own tooling or can they just modify and use the Storm trooper mold and add a soft good cape and unique head?
If it is common enough, that may be why we are getting her and Asty, they can both be made with tools from the existing waves with minimal changes.
I seem to remember an interview posted on the main page here where a Hasbro guy said vac gold/chrome was out of the question due to some sort of concerns... I want to say regulatory or environmental/health? It sounds like they want to do it, but are prohibited from doing it for some reason like that. Which is lame.Two characteristics that would make this a must-buy: Soft goods cape, vac chrome.
Remember when all C-CPOs had the vac gold detailing? Now they just paint him gold? Yeah, this is what makes me think vac chrome is highly unlikely for this figure. At least at this point. They'll paint all of her figures for a while, and then when they sell through they'll do the vac detailing so we can all rebuy her.
I think the soft goods cape is more realistic. If they don't at least give her that, I may stick with my 5poa version.
