I should probably have done this a few years ago. I had preordered the Hot Toys Captain Phasma due to the hype before The Force Awakens was released. Not only was her role minimal in the movie but the figure itself sucked. Limited articulation, wrong visor lining color (supposed to be chrome/silver and not black) and my figure was bow-legged. Someone at GAF told me that she was supposed to be bow-legged...hahahahaha, gtfo. Anyway, she's my least favorite Hot Toys and the reason why I didn't sell it because the resell market for her at that time (and now) is crap. I didn't want to lose out on $100 so soon after I had received it. I probably should have bought Sideshow's PF instead.The design is ridiculously cool.
I always have a policy of not buying figures of characters unless I actually know who they are and watched/played the media they're from. I don't want to wind up with some figure of a character that ultimately sucked in execution...
... But I may start making exceptions. Between Second Sister, Mandalorian, and other recent Star Wars designs, they've put out some truly stunning characters from a visual standpoint.
