The First Appearance of Aphra

What would you think if I told you that the next great Disney princess was going to be in Star Wars VII? What if that princess wasn't actually a hero, but a villain? Her name is Aphra and she is the next big thing from Star Wars, Marvel and Disney. I can't believe this is happening, but it's crazy how fast the First Appearance of Aphra is flying off the shelves and disappearing from E-Bay.

Why is this a big deal? Well, it's been a long, long time since a new character was introduced in the Star Wars universe. With Disney owning Marvel and Star Wars, plus bringing a whole slew of new Star Wars films to the big screen, this seems like a calculated move to many collectors. Add in a few evil droids with names very familiar to Star Wars fans, plus a really cool cover and an even cooler variant and you have a recipe for hotness.

I saw the same thing happen with the variant for Edge of The Spider-Verse 2 variant and I've regretted passing it up. I may even be too late for this one, but I'm going to give it a shot.


Variant copies of CGC 9.8 Darth Vader #3, the 1st appearance of Aphra are starting to hit eBay. I still think something is up with this character and looking around the bowels of the Internet I see several mentions that she will make an appearance in Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens. Again, I'm not saying the story centers around her, but this could be interesting for speculators.
