Okay, so we’ve not seen much of The Force Awakens’ Captain Phasma in action so far. But we know that a), she has amazing shiny armor, b) she’s played by Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie, and c) she’s got a cool cape. In Star Wars, that’s more than enough badassery to earn you an action figure that looks awesome.
Bandai’s latest The Force Awakens Figuarts toy is another villain, but because it’s Phasma, we’re willing to forgive them for doing another baddie. Let’s be honest though, we’d forgive them anyway, because this is just a fantastic looking figure.
The 6” scaled Phasma (meaning she actually dwarfs the First Order Stormtrooper and Kylo Ren by a good head or so) is, like her counterparts, sparsely accessorised—she simply has her equally shiny blaster rifle to her name. But that doesn’t stop Phasma from being so damn cool.
Look at that swagger! Look at that cape! Sure, it’s soft plastic rather than a more natural looking cloth, but it hangs brilliantly on the toy in such a way that it looks great in so many different poses.
Alas, Phasma’s badassery can’t stop you from having to wait awhile to get your hands on this figure. Phasma won’t be out in Japan until February of next year—and when she’s out, she’ll set you back 5,616 yen (or around $46). In the meanwhile though, you can ogle some more pictures of this fabulous figure at the link below.
