Disney/Lucasfilm and Hasbro announced the next fans' choice winner of the fan vote from this past week. The character who won is Dr. Aphra, which is a new character in the expanded Star Wars universe featured in the Marvel comic books.
About the character:
Chelli Lona Aphra was a human female archaeologist who was recruited by Darth Vader after the Battle of Yavin. Aphra, along with her two assassin droid companions, 0-0-0 (Triple-Zero) and BT-1 (Beetee), fulfilled several missions for Darth Vader before falling out of his favor.
Look for Dr. Aphra in the Vintage Collection 3.75" line by Hasbro towards the end of 2018.
We'd like to say thank you to Hasbro for sending us a nice surprise for May The Fourth 2017! The nicely designed package included a Bladebuilder set and a postcard which features Star Wars action figures of Hasbro's 40th Anniversary Darth Vader and Obi-Wan (Ben) Kenobi (photographed by WorkMoreOrLess). Thanks Hasbro!
