Here is a look at the Finn vs Captain Phasma 2 pk. coming soon from Hasbro. As you may recall, this set was on display at SDCC 2016 but without Phasma’s BFG accessory. Look for this to be shipped along side carry-forward packs of the Baze Malbus and Stormtrooper set in a few weeks.
A new exclusive Deluxe “Vs.” set has popped up on Toys”R”Us.co.uk featuring Captain Cassian Andor and an Imperial Stormtrooper Officer. The Cassian is repacked from the U-Wing Fighter and the Stormtrooper is a repaint of the single carded basic/universe figure.

PROS: Hasbro surprised the collecting community when they announced that they’d be tackling “beasts” in the 6″ scale and they got things very much right with Jabba. The sculpt is the best likeness yet with exacting details in the skin – right down to the obligatory tattoo. Hasbro also added a fun bit of interactivity as you can recreate Jabba signature belly laugh by way of rotating the arms up and down to open and close the mouth. Unfortunately, you’ll have to supply the sound effects yourself.
CONS: For an original retail price of $40 (US), this seems really overpriced and overwhelmingly bland when in its retail packaging. Many collectors found themselves frustrated in that the support accessories were only available through the SDCC exclusive. Tough to argue with those sentiments.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.
