That's a beautiful card. The "Journey" auto cards are my favorites so far. Love the design.

What do they mean by we inserted 'a couple'?

the most wasted character/actor in the history of Star Wars. They cut out a scene that was critical between her being badass and being completely useless.

obviously it'll depend on parallels and count of cards, but where do we think her prices will settle?

Like $125 like Yen and Whittaker, lower like Freddy Prince Jr?

She is like a £30-40 auto for Game of Thrones. You therefore need to apply the algorithm for Star Wars premium; base auto card cost (x+y where y is premium) / run (ab x z) = cost range.

And how big of a role phasma has in the new movie. If she has died in Ep7 it'd be a lot lower.

Obviously I was joking, but if it's £30-40 GOT, I would say circa £100 Star Wars. Also seems like they are not inserting many from the way they expressed it.

I think they mean literally that ... the image was of a red outlined card, reds are usually the 1/1 colour, plus one triple auto. That could be it. In which case you could probably add a 0 to your above price estimate.

Not entirely sure:

In the movie:
kills civilians
yells at Finn
gets jumped by Chewie

Cut from the movie: Something happens between this and the next scene

Back in the movie: She's scared when Chewie growls enough to lower the planet shields without putting up a fight.

I read a write-up that suggested an easy fix would have been if they had re-shot the melee fight between Finn and that kung-fu trooper with the energy staff to be against Phasma instead.

Oh well. She will have a larger role in Episode VIII

Good lord, I hope not. But now I'm a tad worried you may be correct.... Why else say "a couple" unless they mean a couple types? Single autos and the triple?

She will likely be in mw3...which also is a good chance at on card as well!

I love her big signature.
I have a few of her Game Of Thrones autographs already. I collect those and she's one of my favorite characters on the show.
I wonder if Topps will be able to get Emilia Clarke autographs for their young Han Solo movie when the time comes. If so, that'll be a popular one!

My fave is prolly Stephen Stanton, nice and legible and fancy looking.

Ashley Eckstein is a close second how she signs as Ashoka too which is neat.

I agree. I have one from her.
She uses the same "A" for both names.
Stylish and a time saver, too!

Didn't Phasma get blown up on the D̶e̶a̶t̶h̶ ̶S̶t̶a̶r̶ ̶3̶ Star Killer Base? Last we saw wasn't she being put in a trash compactor or something ?

I assumed that too. After watching TFA for the first time I really rolled my eyes at her character. She lowered the shields literally without hesitation or resistance and then was essentially thrown into a garbage compactor. There is nothing they can do to save her in my mind (no matter how badass she may be in TLJ) because she was so useless and unloyal in TFA.

Don't get me wrong though I love TFA and I'm not here to bash it, but she sorely misused and poorly characterized.

We didn't get to see the deleted scene where after being thrown into the trash compactor she was attacked by a Dianoga but was able to escape when the compactor walls started moving. At the last moment before being crushed she was able to reach a droid team consisting of a Protocol Droid and an Astromech. The droids were able to shut down the compactor and open the magnetically sealed door. A close call indeed, but she is fine!

So what you're really saying is that in The Last Jedi, she'll hang around a bit at the start, look pretty cool, and then get knocked into a random holemonster where she will find a new definition of pain and suffering as she's slowly digested over a thousand years ?

I really wasn't expecting that to happen until Ep.9, actually. There is a small chance that she may accidentally pilot her ship into a space slug in TLJ. As long as she can avoid any major Mynock damage- things should be ok!
