As part of the build up to Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Topps has been releasing new trading cards from the film every day offering new looks at specific characters and moments from the film.

layed by fan-favorite Game of Thrones star Gwendoline Christie, Phasma was featured briefly in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, ordering Finn around and ultimately getting shoved in a garbage chute.
Fans were disappointed with her lack of presence in the film, especially after the marketing campaign hyped up her character in the new film. Writer and director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi Rian Johnson has promised fans that Phasma will be prominently featured in the new movie, and fans have already gotten a glimpse at some key scenes.
In the trailer, she's shown with a long staff and goes up against Finn, who is wielding the electric staff that was famously used by the Stomtrooper who yells "Traitor!" before the duel on Takodana.
Captain Phasma has seen a sort of "creative overhaul" in recent months, providing more backstory and fleshing out her bad ass persona.
The Phasma novel by Delilah S. Dawson shows the character's origins and rise through the First Order, while her self-titled comic book from Marvel shows what happened in the closing events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
In the comic, Phasma has to cover her tracks so no one finds out that she's responsible for the shield generators being depowered, ultimately leading to the destruction of Starkiller Base. With revenge prominently on her mind, she pins the crime on a scapegoat so that she can live on and fight for the First Order, in hopes of one day facing Finn face to face.
It looks like she'll have her chance in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which premieres in theaters on December 15.
