Force Awakens 12"
« on: October 8, 2015, 09:21 AM »
Anyone happen to buy a 12" Assault Walker? I've been looking at photos and it looks to me like these things would fit pretty nice mixed in with a bunch of basic line 4" scale ATSTs if you had them towards the back and just on display.

edit-looks like I should have posted this in the 1/6 scale figs thread. Sorry mods.

Has anyone noticed the TRU exclusive 12" Captain Phasma in store during their toy runs? I see them showing up on eBay now.

Haven't seen it. Just looked on eBay, helmet looks pretty good for a Hasbro figure.

A whole slew of them showed up at my local TRU this week (at least 10 of them), and they seem to be hanging around okay (in that there doesn't seem to be a rush on them, not that they don't seem to be selling at all).  They're priced at 19.99, and she actually looks pretty good.  The silver paint Hasbro used is probably the shiniest I've seen on a Phasma from any US licensee so far and, short of vac metal  or the Bandai model kit coming in 2016 or the Funko Pop in the Smuggler's Bounty box, might be the best representation of the costume's actual color scheme on the market, collectible-wise.

I don't know about the durability of the paint (whether or not it would flake or chip), but it certainly looked nice in the package.  I'm not a fan of the "shampoo bottle" figures, but I have to admit, the sculpt (what I could see of it through the window) and the detail was very well done.

I have seen them all over lately.  I don't think he will be hard to get if you're collecting them.  They definitely look cool, but no space for that huge scale anymore.

Are you talking 12" or 18"?

Pretty sure I have seen both.  Want me to snag or stash if I see one?  I didn't realize anyone was collecting these.
