Let's start with deco. Most Phasma figures have silver paint on the helmet and torso, but swirly silver molded arms and legs. This one paints the whole darned thing, with crisper helmet detailing which stays within the lines. The cape is pretty much the same, but you'll probably appreciate how the black paint stays where it should and doesn't get at all blobby. Subtle textures on the mouth and shoulders remain, and if you didn't get the Rogue One line's 2-pack the improved sculpting bits here are going to be new to you.
As 5-jointed Phasma figures go, this is the unquestioned champ. The super-articulated one has more movement, but the bonus accessories and paint job here are about as good as we've seen so far. Maybe Hasbro will come up with something better, but even if they don't it's enough of an improvement that I can recommend it without feeling like a shill. (The Finn helps a bunch, though.) Get her if you see this set at a price you like.
Exclusive Notes: This item was not produced for the North American - and perhaps Global - market. The item was effectively rescued from oblivion by Entertainment Earth, a story I am not at liberty to discuss at this time but hey, maybe some day.
Collector's Notes: I got mine from Entertainment Earth.
Force Link Notes: "On my command." "Report to my division at once." "Move to your ships now." (The "Move to" is a little muffled and sounds kind of like a sexy moan. Or maybe I'm just a pervert.) "Fire!" And a bunch of dueling buzzing pike noises. I assume that's what they are, anyway.
