The vote has concluded on the official Site and the results are in. There was some stiff completion across the entire spectrum of Star Wars fandom for this year’s contest, but Doctor Aphra has won the day and will be receiving her very own Vintage Series figure.
Doctor Aphra was an early favorite for the contest and her fans didn’t disappoint. She has become a very popular character in her brief time in the new canon, and adds representation from the new line of Marvel comics to the figure collection world. Aphra creator Kieron Gillen spoke with the official site about the figure.
“I’m of a generation that some of my earliest memories are of Star Wars figures and the magic herein,” Doctor Aphra creator and series writer Kieron Gillen tells StarWars.com. “The idea that someone Salva [Larroca] and I made up is going to be one of those, immortal in plastic, feels all kind of magical.”
The official site also mentions that Ahsoka (Rebels version) came in second in the vote. So, all you Ahsoka fans can hold out hope for next year.
