Captain Phasma (Quicksilver Baton). A figure as mysterious as the character it portrays. No one knew this figure existed, and now we are all playing catch-up on this exciting and unexpected release.

Here's what we know:

  • The code name for this figure is "Tango Leader."

  • Item number: 124732

  • This is a repaint of the 2015 release, but with a new head sculpt and fabric cape.

  • At the time of this posting, this is not yet listed on the Toy "R" Us Canada website.


So far this item has only shipped to Ontario Toy "R" Us stores. According to our sources, there are 2100 in the distribution center, but none are currently scheduled to ship out.

Though the urge may be strong, don't panic, or resort to paying eBay prices! This appears to be the first shipment. Hopefully the information above will help you in your search, and hopefully there will soon be enough of our dear Captain to go around.

UPDATE: Fellow collector Patrick reports that Captain Phasma has been spotted in Montreal, Quebec today as well! "More than 20 available on the shelves. So these are definitely starting to hit TRU stores all over Canada."

For a closer look, fellow Collectors Michael and obsessivecollectingdisorder have both posted several loose images of this surprise exclusive:
