    Let me guess: “we’re doing the ones we got most demand for first”.

    Another woman missing from that set: Captain Phasma – the chrome-plated stormtrooper played by Gwendolyn Christie, whose armor is fucking cool as hell. Instead we get random stormtrooper and tie fighter pilot. WTF indeed.

    that is weird.

  • This is completely typical.

    I’ll never understand toy manufacturers, surely boys will want an action figure of Captain Phasma… Is she on the girl’s side of the store with form fitting armor and a handbag?

  • RogerBW

    An exploding handbag, obviously. And maybe a pink blaster.

    and so disappointing. my little niece is already a SW fan, and i was looking forward to getting her some SW merchandise. of a girl storm trooper, or jedi or something…

  • Bluejay

    Well, to be clear, there IS merchandise featuring the female SW characters:



    It’s just that they’re still excluded from certain toy packs for no good reason.
