Star Wars 12" Last Jedi - CAPTAIN PHASMA!

Star Wars: The Last Jedi - 12" Action Figures - Captain Phasma - Hasbro 2017

I had a lot of high hopes for Captain Phasma. A female storm trooper captain in silver armor with an intimidating stature and a cape is a recipe for awesome. But in actuality, I felt that she was very underused. I don't know exactly what I expected from her, but a glorified drill sergeant that plummets down an abyss of a crumbling Starkilller base seems very lacklustre. I thought I had picked up all the Phasma action figures until I saw this 12" figure at FiveBelow and realized I had skipped it. I vaguely remember seeing a 12" Phasma for Force Awakens at TRU and thinking it looked like a generic silver Stormtrooper. I passed on it at the time. The funny thing is, I believe this Last Jedi version is a straight-up re-release, but for some reason it is now infinitely more appealing (especially for five bucks!) Spoiler: In fact-checking this post, I learned that there are deleted scenes on the Last Jedi DVD that imply Phasma is not as dead as we might think (although I highly doubt she will have a role in Skywalker). Let's check her out below!

Star Wars 12" figures are always a bit lacking with only five Points of Articulation.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Phasma with the 12" Last Jedi Rey.
