    More likely she knew turning off the shield would alert her command and most probably have Kylo come look into the matter himself... which he DID!

    Although I heard there was a deleted scene where Kylo found the crashed Millennium Falcon and even went inside!

    It's a joke in a Lego game, not an official explanation.

    And Lego games aren't remotely canon.

    Yeah, I feel like they should've kept it in the film.

    Those side stories ARE considered canon though. Just not how they're presented. Isn't that right?

    Unless those events have been presented in other media, then no. Nothing Lego does is canon. It's all meant as lighthearted entertainment with no impact on timelines or canon.

    Really hope Phasma comes back! Rian has potential for her!

    Isn't Phasma coming back in a more significant role in Episode 8? It will be good to see this first lady villain of Star Wars make a triumphant return to the First Order, after her rather underwhelming screen-time in TFA! ^:)^

    One of the misleading things about the marketing and promotional material for TFA was how much of a presence Phasma had in it. What truly baffles me is how that photo of her in Vanity Fair depicts her involvement in the battle of Takodana, and yet that is not the case in the film. Even making a story choice as minor as subbing her in for the stormtrooper that fights Finn would have validated her narrative value more. She defeats him on Takodana, then he gets back at her on Starkiller Base.

    Her lack of role didn't bother me tbh.

    Her implementation in the film is what it is at this point, but it's just a shame that the marketing misled many into thinking she would be a significant antagonist.

    Same. I was expecting more. Maybe on Jakku and at Maz's Castle. And Starkiller Base. The trash Compactor scene was worth it though. Dislike it, but worth it.

    That's one of the reasons I try to steer clear of as much official info as possible. Having the wrong expectations for a movie rarely works out well.

    I like Phasma, BTW. She looks cool and has a great voice! I'm hoping for some wicked Phasma action next time around - but I won't expect it ;)

    Yeah, I didn't see or hear anything about Phasma before I watched it for the first time. No expectations to be disappointed.

    A testament to avoiding being misled by hype.

    I had no problem that they didn't have a lot of her in 7 but she was alright the amount if time that she was in it. If she will be in 8 then I hope that they will have more of her. Wasn't she thrown into a trash compactor at the end of? I bet that she is pissed and wants revenge, that would work for 8 and hopefully she will be in it for more time than in 7.

    Can it be that Captain Phasma is not human but maybe Rodian or Zabrak given the giantic helmet? IMHO it would be cool to see some stormtroopers in the FO who are not human.

    They set Phasma up as Finn's would be nemesis but the switch was that she wound up being neutralised successfully before Finn would have to confront the embodiment of the truly dark side of the regime he has deserted from. And for Rey's sake. He is fortunate to survive.

    Likewise, Kylo is set up as Rey's would be nemesis. Rey is forced to deal with the realisation that she is meant to take a path and that the saber is a type of beacon. When she accepts that path she eventually neutralises Ren.

    He on the other hand has turned away from the light and taken a leap into the darkness for a shot at promised glory and power. He too has had to overcome his instincts to achieve this, or so he believes. His "thank you" is an attempt to abdicate responsibility. When the purging of weakness is not forthcoming, Ren struggles to continue on his path while denying his instinct that he is wrong.
    Because of this, Ren is unfocused. Hence the inability to anticipate Chewie's shot and the rest.

    Phasma was turned into joke, definitely. Cant accept her as a serious dangerous character after TFA.

    Why? Because Chewie overpowered her?

    I love Phasma. Cool character and great actor IMO. Looking forward to seeing what they do with her next.

    I think she's more credible as a bad ass now if anything, because she will want revenge.

    I guess this remains to be seen. For me, and I'm a fan of the movie, she was disappointing. Good in theory, but I agree with others that she wasn't given enough to do. I'm a fan of Christie's as well. So you can Imagine my little "Oh dear" in the cinema when she was just a punchline. If she's used better in 8 I will be very happy.

    The plastic duck that Luke recovers as he's escaping DSII explosion must be set up for Episode IX.

    And don't forget the wookie cookies.
