When the new Mara comes out, I might try building a deck around her, the Emperor and Boba.  Six protectors will make him a good deal more viable.

I think that sounds interesting. 

 

I haven't played enough of the game to really warrant being listened to at this point, but off the top of my head, I sometimes think that both of the enhancements in the pod being 'Jabbable', so to speak, is interesting.  Heck, even for beefing up Jabba himself.

 

  At least I'd be able to do a remake of the Aerosmith song: Jabba's Got a Gun.  Might be a chart-topper.

I'm only counting 4 protectors there (2 Royal Guards, 2 Shadow Guards).  You could toss in the BotF Mara and hope to use Join Me to grab a Guardian of the Peace for a 5th protector... then use Palpatine to grab Join Me back and grab another Guardian of the Peace for a 6th...

Boba Fett is thematic, but just not very playable. His icons are wrong for his ability. He has too little health. While the armor is a great card and gets Boba targeted strike, something like 50% or more of units die when he strikes them (i.e. wrong icon spread). He is elite and has good Force icons, but he is a sitting duck for just about everything. The worst thing is that if he is losing edge on purpose to use his ability, he (or a protector) is probably dying or getting focused out.


Welcome to the machine!

2 Shadow Guards per Mara pod IIRC.

Nope, just 1.  We know card 1( the objective), 2 (Mara), 3 (Shadow Guard), 4 (Mara's saber), and 6 (Rage).  Card 5 will either be an enhancement or an event, but is definitely not a Shadow Guard.

One way to make him semi-viable would be to use the aforementioned protector units and then deliberately lose the Edge battle. This will allow Boba - barring any Heats of Battle and multiple enemy tactics icons - to (hopefully) stay alive long enough to capture a card.

 

But yeah, he could really do with a new version.

I agree.  We're going to be seeing (and have seen!) new versions of a few iconic characters.  Let's hope Fett makes the list, as well!

Fett is the iconic S&V character in much the same way as Luke is for Jedi/Rebels and Vader is for Sith/Imperials (hard to limit those characters to a single affiliation).  I'm sure we'll see more versions of him in the future.

I could definitely see a Navy version of Boba.  The objective could be called Government Contract or something.  Sith maybe not, just like a Rebel version of Luke would be fine (in fact the Hoth pilot version probably should have been Rebel), but a S&S Luke would be weird.

I doubt that Boba will switch affiliations on us, but I'm sure we'll see more versions of him.

Considering there are two Jedi versions of Luke, I can see more than 1 Scum version of Boba Fett.


Rebels: 3 X-Wing, 1 Y-Wing, 1 A-Wing, 1 B-Wing, 1 YT-1300

Imperials: 5 TIE/LN, 1 TIE/ADV, 1 TIE/IN, 1 Firespray-31

Perhaps, but isn't it in the very nature of, shall we say, the more questionable characters in S&V to switch sides at the drop of a hat?  X3 

 

Though Boba is one of those awesome, hardcore and principled bounty hunters...

Luke was not just a Jedi and yet both the versions of him are Jedi Affiliated.

We've seen a Rebel version of Han, I'm sure that a Rebel version of Luke is coming eventually.

I get that, I‘m just saying in regards to the idea of the next Boba Fett being of a different affiliation. I think we would see another Scum version of him first.

It's too bad Boba couldn't receive errata with 3 capacity, and (if necessary) his armor with only +2 capacity.

I agree there (and think I said the same myself) :-)

I think so, too.  I was just saying he's tricksy.  XP
