    How old is Aphra as of the current comic?

    Well I'm currently reading the "Screaming Citadel" graphic novel; if I could guess she's in her late 20s. I love how she always refers to Luke as "kid"; even more than Han does lol.

    That's my estimate as well, late 20s or early 30s at maximum. But I still want Marvel to clarify this one day.

    Hmm, I wonder/hope that we will see some Aphra after Endor.

    I know this might belong in the games forum, but I'd love to see her as a character in Battlefront 2.

    They included a lot from the shattered Empire comic in the campaign. So it might be possible.

    The whole Naboo mission comes straight from that comic.

    Operation Cinder also comes from the comic too.

    Just finished The Screaming Citadel book that featured Luke and Aphra teaming up on a weird planet ruled by a vampire-like queen. It was kind of weird reading a story that takes place right in the middle of the OT era with the Imperials dominating everything and there's barely one hint of them throughout the whole book. I borrowed the book from my library. I'm considering buying the next Dr. Aphra book though, which according to Amazon comes out in a few weeks.

    Yeah regarding Aphra's age it would be very difficult to make her any younger than 27 or 28 because that flashback scene where she is burning down her dad's house is said to have taken place 18 years ago. So if she currently was younger than her late twenties she would of had to be like six or seven in that scene. And she definitely looked older than six or seven.

    To me that flashback image of her could range anywhere from 9/10 year old to a 13/14 year old. Definitely not any younger and definitely not any older though,

    Cool figure. Not really into collecting action figures myself so probably won't get it. But nice. Had to make a little joke about the girls pants in a different thread though.

    I am usually not into collecting myself, but this one is a must-have.

    I just need to know two things: When and where can I get it?

    I don't know. I asked that same question on Twitter, but so far nobody has responded.

    Well it's not a question of "if" for me, but when. I wonder if it'll be available before the third graphic novel is released this Summer.

    I did some further research. The Aphra figure will be part of Hasbro's new Vintage collection, which itself is a part of the Solo: A Star Wars Story merchandise.
    Here another pic from the Solo collectibles thread in the Anthology forum.

    I have been told just now that the vintage collection which has Aphra in it will be available around late April.

    Hopefully the word "vintage" doesn't mean that the stores and comic shops will charge $30 for a 6" figure.

    As a special thanks to the work she has done over the past few years, I add former Marvel comics editor @HeatherAntos to our fanclub. She's now one of us.

    I will post an updated list of our fanclub members next week.
