Captain Phasma CRL 2017 Update Thread


Recommended Posts

The current Captain Phasma is here: http://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TK_TFA_captain_phasma


The goal is to add L2/L3 requirements to this CRL, and we've asked Ingrid Moon (LadyInWhite) to lead this.  Along with Teresa, Jana, Molly and several others, this is what they have so far.



1. This first post will always be the master list.  Any agreed upon changes will be reflected here.

2. I will cite any change, e.g. [TFAL2] as something that is copied from the TFA L2, or [Ingrid] as an Ingrid change.

3. Goal is to have this 100% complete by the end of the year.

4. Removals will be in red, additions in blue.


Alrighty, so, let's get the party started. :)

Hi I am still a 501st recruit but I know Phasma very well. TLJ Phasma is the armor that I am starting off with. I been trying to figure out the new chest plate It seems that its cut higher up definitely not the same cut as TFA. But It could just be in my head I am sure they switched to the standard, I have not actually measured it out yet to be sure. I been looking over every second of TFA Phasma that I can.  I would be happy to add my input.  If its wanted.

The I would like to add more detail for the collapsed quicksilver baton since I just finished extremely accurate 3d modeling of the baton. The collapsed version should be about 2 foot in length and 3/4 inch in diameter. It should have 3 cut outs of varying length that should be 1/2 in width. Inner cut 4 in, Middle cut 1 in, and outer 3/4 in. 1in between the inner cuts,  1/4 in between the inner and middle cuts, and 1/2 in between  the middle and outer cuts. The taper for the point starts at the end of the last cut out. Which should be about 5 in long. It looks like the extended version keep the same length of cut out and space and the taper is the same length.


Here is one half  for  demo:


[_.5"_(       4"       ).25"(   1" )_.5"_(.75") ______5"_____>


Do what you will this info. I would say use it for L2/L3 check off.

Also, for now, we don't have enough CRL images to complete the TLJ Phasma CRL, so this is a great time to add any requirements to it before it goes up for LMO review.

 I am also posting this in TFA Phasma discussion.


 So the CRL for TFA the upper sabatons(the armor pieces on the boot) are pictured with incorrect placement. the top edge should go under the spats not on top of it. It always looking wrong to me but I just figured it out today. They were displayed wrong in the prop show.  Scenes in the TFA shows with it under but also showed with it slightly over. I think they are meant to be placed under like every other set of sabaton I have seen on every other suit of amor. I think that during shooting they had a tendency to pop out of placement because of the method of attachment. Its shown here slightly above and then below the spats. Lastly if you look at the visual dictionary for the force awakens, it shows the sabatons under the spats.  Same for the TLJ visual dictionary. 


So that's my reasoning for why the spats have incorrect placement.



PS all the toys also show the sabotans under.
