As far as a 5POA line, I do

As far as a 5POA line, I do really like the figures and how they've done them. Phasma for example, has a very subtle stance that I like a lot, and figures wih robes have the legs sculpted on the inside. It's not a substitute for a fully articulated line of figures, but I can appreciate it for what it is .

I've not been a fan of the

I've not been a fan of the current 5POA line. Seems like an unnecessary step backwards in quality and features since Disney stepped in. Up to this point most of the 3.75 Star Wars figures had fairly nice articulation at the same price point of the current 5POA TFA figures.

If they wanted a way to move potential peg warmer figures, they should have just opted for another droid builder set rather than the weird combiner weapons. However, I'm sure that's more targeted at kids who would rather have an "Imperial pizza cutter" over a random droid leg.

Walmart seems to have the exclusive on 3.75 black series figures from TFA, at a bit of a markup than past 3.75 black series figures. Still seems the way to go for 3.75 figures at the moment, even though the lineup is a bit limited for the time being.

I don't mind them moving down

I don't mind them moving down to 5poa,but the excuse given is cost and yet we don't see any savings on our end!

That said just a heads up if you have Family Dollar in your area they have all the TFA figures for 5 bucks.

Keep in mind, Boba Fett's

Keep in mind, Boba Fett's first (movie) appearance in ESB was pretty much the same as Phasma's... just stood there in the few scenes he was in, said a few lines like "He's no good to me dead" and didn't do much of anything else (oh okay, he shot at Luke a few times).

I'm still a Phasmaddict despite her underwhelming appearance in TFA though... I have this 3.75 one, the Black Series one, the Elite diecast version, the TRU 12 inch exclusive, and the 18 inch Jakks! Am I missing anything else?

Lego too

There's an upcoming Lego Constraction (a.k.a. Bionicle-style) Phasma that looks very nice as well. Right now the minifigure only comes in the landing shuttle set.

To me a hot toys is going to

To me a hot toys is going to far unless this character turns out to be way more important later,or a boba Fett-like cult star. At this point making a hot toys Phasma is like making a hot toys Wuher.
