Doctor Aphra Wins Hasbro’s Star Wars Fan Figure Vote

THE DOCTOR IS IN…THE 3.75-INCH VINTAGE COLLECTION, THANKS TO STAR WARS FANS!

Doctor Aphra is going on her biggest adventure yet: a journey from the pages of Marvel’s Star Wars comics to your toy collection. And it’s all thanks to you!

The kinda good, kinda bad archaeologist has won Hasbro’s Star Wars Fan Figure Vote on StarWars.com, meaning that she’ll be making the jump to toy form and joining the new 3.75-inch Star Wars Vintage Collection. Doctor Aphra, introduced in 2016 in Marvel’s Darth Vader series, rocketed quickly to fan-favorite status. She was dangerous, funny, and kept the company of two psychotic droids, but wasn’t completely without a heart; it was hard not to root for her, even when battling our heroes. Today, Doctor Aphra stars in her own ongoing series and cosplay sightings are regular.

Comics With Kenobi #30

April proved a pivotal month for Star Wars comics.

From the first issue of Marvel’s Rogue One adaptation, which provided some context and details not seen in the film, to the conclusion of  story arcs in Star Wars 30 and Star Wars: Doctor Aphra 6along with the passing of a beloved member of the Resistance’s Black Squadron in Star Wars: Poe Dameron 13, there was plenty of pathos and high adventure to be had.

Co-hosts Matt Moore and Jeff McGee were suitably impressed with Star Wars: Darth Maul 3, which continued to build nuanced layer after nuanced layer on a Zabrak who began life seemingly as a throwaway character, but has grown to become one of the Star Wars Saga’s most enduring and utterly complex characters.

Comics With Kenobi Issue #26 (238)

It’s never easy losing a friend, an idol, an icon. The loss of Carrie Fisher is one we won’t forget and will feel, acutely, through 2017 and beyond.

It’s among the reasons this episode starts somber, and for good reason, but we never lose sight of the hope that Star Wars brings its legion of fans and the community that has built itself up around the Saga.
