I’ve been saying since I saw Star Wars: The Last Jedi that Captain Phasma is the new Boba Fett, and this video proves it. I mean that in the sense that her stories outside of the films are far more entertaining, and much like Fett, she died in a way that really undermines just how much of a bad ass she was. Take her armor for example, which I just now learned is blaster resistant and was once the property of Emperor Palpatine. It’s a damn shame we didn’t see that armor get put to better use, but I’m sure the expanded universe stories about her will make mention of it quite often. Learn the history of Phasma’s armor below, and let us know if you think she was a wasted character.
One of the several awesome moments in Star Wars: The Last Jedi took place in the throne room. If you’ve seen the movie you know exactly what scene I’m talking about. Well, Huxley Berg Studios has re-created that scene with LEGO stop-motion and the end result turned out pretty impressive. If you haven’t seen the movie yet, then you might want to skip it because it contains some major spoilers for the movie. If you have seen it, then enjoy!
There are so many unexpected surprises in Star Wars: The Last Jedi and one of the biggest ones is the appearance of a certain character that almost nobody expected to even show up. While talking with writer/director Rian Johnson, /Film learned the story behind this very surprising moment.
A few weeks ago a promo spot for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was released that featured Luke Skywalker stepping into the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon for the first time in over 30 years. It was very cool to see after all these years and today we have a new photo from EW to share with you along with an interview with Mark Hamill. In the interview, he talks about what it was like for him being back on the Millennium Falcon.
Hot Toys has revealed their latest Star Wars action figure featuring the 1/6th scale Execution Trooper action figure from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. This is our best look yet at the Executioner Trooper and, of course, I want to get one! The Trooper has a really cool look and that electricity axe that he’s wielding looks like it could do some serious damage.
In case you’re wondering the purpose of the Executioner Trooper here’s a description:
The First Order can only operate effectively with the absolute loyalty of its followers. Should any soldier be found guilty of treason, it is up to this special branch of Stormtroopers to dispense final justice.
While we all wait to see how Kylo Ren’s story arc unfolds in the Star Wars saga, we have a new 1/6th collectible action figure from Hot Toys for you to check out. This is the version of the character from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, with the change of the scar across his face and everything. As you can see, we also get a look at Supreme Leader Snoke’s Praetorian Guards. Some of the photos show Kylo in a kneeling position with the guards behind him. I assume he is kneeling before Snoke. This is yet another great figure with all the awesome details we’ve come to expect from Hot Toys. Here are the details:
