Ever wonder what the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens Hasbro 5 points of articulation Kylo Ren and Captain Phasma figures looks like? They look like this. Anyway, these first looks at the Hasbro TFA line showed up on ebay this morning and sold for a hundred bucks and more despite hitting shelves nationwide in 3 weeks for $7.50, someone’s got a bad case of the “firsts”. But we all get a nice look at what to expect, as well as that seller’s broiler.
UPDATE: Another of this seller’s auctions shows the Kylo Ren cardback as well as the Captain Phasma carded figure, front and back, which sold for $125. Images below, and the card back reveals how the combining accessories are laid out, a co-sell for an upcoming 5POA Luke Bespin, and text reveals of the bios:
Kylo Ren – A dark warrior strong with the Force, Kylo Ren commands First Order missions with a temper as fiery as his unconventional lightsaber.
Captain Phasma – Clad in distinctive metallic armor, Captain Phasma commands the First Order’s legions of troopers.
Also, under the image in the bubble of the combined weapon, a small Aurebesh text reads “combine forest gear”.
The buyer even has to pay $10 for the shipping, which itself also costs more than the actual figure, which will come September 4th when all this stuff hits shelves. Also, because the price of 5POA figures is going up, they threw in a combining accessory – is it canon now that everything’s canon? Probably not. And how many Kylo Rens are on that card? You have the character image, the figure, and the corner image that will be on all the figures – that’s a lot of Kylo Rens!
