Star Wars Black Series 3.75" Captain Phasma

Revenge of the Fifth! Here's a look at the Black Series 3.75" Captain Phasma. 

Anyone else disappointed with Captain Phasma in The Force Awakens. I thought she would be more of a bad-ass. What with her shiny armour and authoritative presence. In the end she was most to blame for the destruction of Starkiller Base. She should have put up more of a fight. I hope they have better things in store for her. 

The figure looks great. The armour is shiny and does not come across as looking too plasticky. I think the sculpt is good. The body is all new. The legs look a little too thin but I think it's okay. She is a tall one after all. The paint apps are decent enough. The silver has gone onto the black in some areas. The cape was made of a soft, flexible material. It has good detail and is textured. 

The cape is removable. She looks just as good without it. Hmmm I'm slightly tempted to troop build a squad of these. But I know I better not.

Accessories. She comes with her gold tinged blaster rifle. It's the same weapon that came with the Forest Mission figure. This one has more paint detail. There's a slot on her right leg where you can attach the rifle to if you want.  

Articulation. She's got a ball joint neck, ball hinge shoulders, swivel hinge elbows, swivel and weapon hinge (up down) right wrist, swivel hinge left wrist, ball joint torso, ball hinge hips, swivel hinge knees and swivel hinge ankles. She can hardly look up or down. The torso joint allows rotation and some bend to the sides. She can hardly bend forwards. The elbows can almost bend 90 degrees. The knees fare poorer. 

Comparison shots. I think the two Captain Phasmas make a nice couple. 

A nice figure overall. Definitely prefer this over the Forest Mission version. Why can't they just release these more articulated versions in the first place... Thanks for viewing!
