TLJ Captain Phasma CRL Thread

Recommended Posts

The goal is to get this CRL complete as it's never been done before.  I've asked Ingrid Moon (LadyInWhite) and Misty Melillo to lead this.  Along with

Teresa, Jana, Molly and several others, this is what they have so far.

 

Yes, this is the TFA as the base and I'll make changes based on what they have posted in their GoogleDoc as updates, but wanted to get the base post started.

 

NOTES:

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.

 

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

One thing to do could be to differentiate the chrome finish between TFA and TLJ. I guess you could add in the level 2 or 3 for the TFA CRL that the chrome should be weathered and grimmy, when the TLJ chrome should be immaculate.

Same thing goes for the blaster finish. TFA has a silver, yellowish finish, when her blaster in TLJ is chromed in the same way that her armor.

Also, in TLJ Phasma lost her upper shins and has regular stormtrooper spats instead. And I think remembering reading somewhere that the fingers were different too.

I have a boat-load of changes from the google doc - just need some quiet time to put them in.  You'll see a lot of changes soon.

Truth - all of these are being baked in now.

Spear going to be TLJ only for Centurion? That’d be my vote.

Weapons are optiomal like most CRL's. But a blaster is required for L2 and upwards, I don’t think a spear would be mandatory for higher levels

OK, I added more details from the TLJ CRL L2/L3 from here: http://databank.501st.com/databank/Costuming:TK_TLJ

 

The issue is that some of these L2/L3 details do not apply to Phasma.  Hopefully the girls will chime in and let us know what can be copied over.  I'm adding a few more reference pix.

Guess I should clarify, what I meant is only allowing TLJ Phasma to have it as a weapon for higher levels and not TFA Phasma (much like pauldron/vest/riot shield combo specifications for FOTKs).

Wasn't seen with one in TFA so would not be an option for that CRL
