Disney Store is celebrating Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens with a line of die cast figures based on the film. These figures were released back on The International Star Wars event on September 4th, which was also called Force Friday and the day that all of the new movie toys had hit. Also included in the die cast assortment from Disney are Captain Phasma, Finn, Rey & BB-8, Kylo Ren, the First Order Stormtrooper, and the First Order Flametrooper.
Captain Phasma is one of the most popular characters in the film and merchandise based on the character, especially action figures, have been flying off the shelves since September 4th. Captain Phasma has the responsibility of leading the First Order Stormtroopers into battle against the Resistance and is also one of the main female characters we will see in the upcoming film.
Thank you to Disney and The Disney Store for providing the Captain Phasma exclusive Die Cast figure to us to review.
Availability: September 2015
Captain Phasma stands at 7 1/4″ tall and made with die cast, which makes the figure heavier compared to other materials such as plastic. The figure is also made with some plastic parts such as the cape, blaster, and helmet. The rest of the body such as the torso, arms, and legs are made with die cast parts.
The body is painted with chrome, which is a nice touch and really stands out with the black deco on the hands, elbows, shoulders, hips, and knees. The cape is painted black with a red foil accents, which gives it a unique look.
The base is made of flimsy plastic and sometimes may have difficulty supporting the figure depending on the position he’s left standing. There is only one peg hole on Captain Phasma’ feet and one peg on the stand. The base does have some carvings sculpted on including the Star Wars logo. The blaster is made of plastic, and may have some issues staying in the figures hand.
The back of Captain Phasma’s back have holes including on the figures back, legs, and triceps showing metal screws in place that were put there to assemble the figure. The screws are visible only if you remove the cape.
He has a decent amount of articulation including a ball jointed head, ball-hinged shoulders, hinged elbows, swivel wrists, ball jointed hips, hinged knees, and hinged ankles.
Captain Phasma offers a lot of value for the MSRP price of $24.99 USD. He is a nicely detailed and accessorized figure and a beautiful sculpt.
