When he isn't downing pints with Bleeding Cool Rumormonger-in-Chief Rich Johnston at the local pub or starring as Nebula in the upcoming film Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Kieron Gillen writes the Star Wars: Doctor Aphra comic for Marvel. So when Gillen found out that Doctor Aphra, who he co-created with artist Salvador Larroca during their Darth Vader comic, could be the next character to get a 3.75-inch toy release with Hasbro's Vintage Collection retro packaging, as reported yesterday by Bleeding Cool, he took to social media to motivate voters:
It has been brought to my attention there's a vote for the next 3.75" Star Wars figure. Aphra's on it. Go democracy! https://t.co/SF2XP6hwdj

Aphra is currently tied with Ahsoka from Star Wars Rebels, with each holding 26% of the vote.
