Looks like Disney Store will be offering a few exclusives at Celebration Europe next week as an ad for the event reveals a new Elite Series FN-2187 Die Cast figure as well as a Limited Edition Captain Phasma figurine. Look for official details on these items and more soon.
UPDATE: A call to the Disney Store (courtesy of Brad Berry) as uncovered that this figures will be released on July 18.
PROS: The overall sculpt and size is good, making it manageable for most display applications and the pose is fitting for a bounty hunter in midst of battle. The carbon freezing chamber base gives it nice presentation while making it very stable for displaying. The best aspect of this piece is the addition of the light-up base – something that would have been great in the 2014 Darth Vader base. No assembly required.
CONS: Pricey for the size and its limited edition (750 piece) production run is driving up the secondary price on eBay with listings ranging from two to three times the retail price. Paint apps could be tighter, especially the silver weathering which borders on excessive.
Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and judge for yourself whether this piece is worth adding to your collection.
