There's a lot of supposition there. For instance, how do you know the new Vader's going to be Sith? Couldn't he be Imperial Navy?

Could be yes. All we can do is guess at this point. I have added that possibility to my list.

Does FFG usually spoil the entire force pack before it is released?

FFG never does full spoilers. Fans do though and scans are added on cardgamedb.

In this month's Game Trade Magazine, you can see a few more previews, or at least pieces of some. In the first CP there is an Imperial Navy Darth Vader, a Jedi enhance or event (can't tell) called Old Ben's Spirit, and one other card I can't remember.

Anyone had any luck getting a pic of these three cards ? I hope the art for Imperial Vader is the art from A Dark Time with the snowtroopers.

Excellent scans and reproduction.  Vader's ability is sick!  Free unit and objective damage each turn?  Yes please!

Either that link is wrong or a bad joke as it keeps taking me to YouTub music video.

Never click on anything with "tinyurl".

Here is a picture from the Game Trade Magezine I promised. Vader seem like he has some type of attacking unit buff. Could be good with all the Navy small dudes.

So how do you all feel about a Navy Darth Vader and a Sith Darth Vader?  You know a Rebel Luke will happen in the Hoth Cycle as well.  Rebel Han will happen sooner or later too.  Any other crossovers you can think of?

I would have been rather upset if the new Vader had been Sith. Imp Navy is fine, neutral would also be acceptable.

Based on what we can see, I'm gonna say Vader's full info goes something like this:

*Darth Vader
Cost: 5
Force Icons: 4
Combat Icons: 2x Unit, 1x Edge Blast
Elite (Remove an additional focus token from this unit when you refresh.)
While Darth Vader is attacking, each of your attacking Trooper units gains [Unit Damage].
4 Damage Capacity

Also, the Probe Droid card from the Desolation spoiler is in the same objective set (41).
