trooper 7

Star Wars fans have been blessed recently with a veritable Imperial March of fantastic toys. Many fans dream of possessing the coolest, best action figure out there and Bandai has been making it pretty hard to choose just one. They’ve made the choice a little more difficult with their newest toy now, however, which is modeled on a new character from Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Move over Fett clones, the troopers have a new captain in town. Fall in line for Captain Phasma.

Although not a whole lot is known about this new addition to the Star Wars Universe, the brief glimpses we have of Captain Phasma from the teaser trailers make it clear that she is quite the badass. How do we know, you ask? Well she’s played by Game of Thrones‘ Gwendoline Christie, has shiny storm trooper armor and has a cool cape…

▼ See? Badass.

Coming in at about six inches, she will stand taller than other Storm Trooper figures in the same Tamashii line. With a fearsome, not to mention wonderfully shiny, blaster rifle no one will be telling this captain that she’s a little short for a storm trooper.

She does of course, also boast classic S.H.Figuarts poseability, meaning that this rendition of Captain Phasma will be leading your First Order troops into any battle situation you can dream up. The only point of contention might be the soft plastic rather than fabric that they used for her cape, but on the plus-side this does ensure that the cape will always be fluttering epically, which you can’t always guarantee with some action figure capes (we are looking at you Superman).

This impressive figure will be available for in-store pre-orders on October 1, but the actual figure won’t be available until February 2016. If you are looking to add this fine-looking figure to your collection than be ready to fork over 5,616 yen (US$46.93), but judging by the pictures, she will be worth every single, shiny yenny.
