got the scoop this morning with news of Hasbro's Star Wars
exclusive for San Diego Comic Con coming up soon.
Marvel’s Star Wars comics have given us some delightful new characters over the past few years, but none have been taken to quite like the intrepid archaeologist Dr. Aphra (one-time associate of Darth Vader himself) and her killer droid pals, Triple Zero and BT. Now, for the first time, they’re all coming to action figure form.UPDATE:
io9 can exclusively reveal that Hasbro is bringing a 3.75"-scale “The Vintage Collection” three-pack featuring Aphra, 0-0-0 the protocol droid, and BT-1 the astromech to San Diego, as one of its Star Wars Comic-Con exclusives this year. The set will also be available at FanExpo Canada later this year, as well as in limited quantities online after Comic-Con at the Hasbro Toy Shop.
