After being teased for months on the 12″ reissues of Wal*Mart’s exclusive R2-D2 and BB-8 in SOLO packaging, we now have confirmation of Captain Phasma’s existence. Thanks to collector and all around great guy Paul Van Dyk, this 12″ reissue (from The Force Awakens line) has been found in Canada. We expect that just like the two Astromech droids before her, this figure will eventually trickle down into the states in the following months.
Clad in distinctive metallic armor, Captain Phasma commands the First Order’s legions of troopers. Having survived the destruction of Starkiller Base, she has a personal score to settle with the Resistance.
Now for those collecting this line, this figure is no different from her previous release (despite what the new description on the back of the box may indicate) and is simply a packaging refresh exclusive to the mega retailer. This figure’s first appearance was exclusive to Toys ‘R’ Us (RIP).
We have updated our 12″ Action Figure Hero Series Checklist with this confirmation thanks again to Paul!
