TLJ Captain Phasma CRL Thread

Recommended Posts

Hey Brandi - just so you know I'm not forgetting or ignoring these.  OK, well ignoring for a bit but I'm adding in the bits to the first post and also sending text out to the LMOs, as right now I think we have enough photos for an initial CRL.  Like all CRLs, they are not static and will likely evolve over time as better images and also more accurate armor, etc. becomes available.

No worries! I'm sure there are more pressing matters out there. ;)

 

I do have a side by side comparison of the Imperial boots black Spec OPS vs. Phasma TLJ screen grab, if that helps. I can send that over as needed. i know I've already inundated you with photos!

That would be great!  Esp. as I'm sure the LMOs will be asking about that part.  Posting the links here is great as they can see this thread directly too.

 

I've submitted the text to the LMOs and let's see what they come back with.  Any other tweaks you think should be done (I keep the first post updated for easy tracking).

Not the prettiest comparison, but somewhat effective. I can do a more formal one, as needed. This is the boot I'd like to use for my TLJ Phasma because I believe this is what was used. From the research I've done, it appears that some TK boot was used and this seems most similar.

You cannot see the side seam and it's hard to say for certain that it's exact, but costume departments (and Art Dept) are known for recycling wardrobe for various characters, etc. There looks to be a piece of black elastic holding the toe pieces to the heel armor, and that seems to cover the seam and obscure the elastic panel some.

 

When I used to go to Western Costume and some of the wardrobe houses, I'd often see the same items used over and over. We Art Dept (and Costumers) often use the same things repeatedly, if it works, don't break it!

Hi all, I've been pouring over all of the reference materials I could get my hands on and was wondering if someone can help me confirm some things... apologies if these things have been hashed out already!

 

 

1. The gasket for the knee appears to have a cutout/slit for movement. The first time I saw this was in a magazine photoshoot, so I dug through frame by frame and found what I think is matching screen references for the opening. If I was to hazard a guess, there are two gaskets for each leg, one is the thigh gasket (which the knee armour plate is connected to, and a shin gasket. The shin gasket tucks under the thigh/knee gasket which causes the overhanging knee plate that I see often

2. Some of the finger armour appears to have a recessed groove like the hand plate. Every second and third finger plate has the groove, whilst only the thumb tip has a groove. The index and middle finger armour also has a raised section with a small pillbox like recess (like the hand plate).

3. In the CRL and visual guide the SE-44c has chroming but the one she fires in the film is all black. Are either OK?

4. The frown on TLJ Phasma is a lot tighter than TFA Phasma. I've been measuring against the Anovos I am deconstructing and there are some differences that make the frown thinner. I have yet to document this properly. I am starting to think they changed the faceplate only, not the whole bucket.

Just want to point out that the SE-44c image is showing an F-11D right now.

Do we have any pics of the palm of the glove? 

 

Just wondering about the stitching on the inner palm.

Right then time for some change requests on the nice new CRL! :laugh1:  These are what I've been fed from the armourer team in my Garrison.

  • 2nd Blaster needs changing to the pistol
  • Cape has only one strap, currently says 2.
  • Quick Silver Baton description is wrong - no circles, they are all rounded slots.

    "The Baton has a cut out sections centered 1/3rd from each end that is comprise of a three Rounded Slots which match the onscreen reference."

  • Undersuit is not shiny for the "shorts", it should have leather or pleather type satin material.

 

Oh and Davids ID is 19666 not 16714!
