Looks like we're getting Slave one and Dengar.

Slave I was on the initial announcement and is already in the list. All we can see of Dengar is a picture no card. I've already added Chewie and the other cards from that pic of the box back.

Yep but i can't remember if any illustrations on FFG's game boxes aren't finally cards or stuff in that game.

We can see Dengar and Nien Nunb on the box and i'm pretty sure they are cards for EoD :)

To be fair, while we can be pretty sure that there will be a card with art featuring Dengar, we don't know for sure that it will be a unit.  That said, I tend to agree that it's more likely than not.

Likely yes but it could just as easily be something different. Until we see the art on a card I'm leaving it out for now.

Man, striking while not in the engagement seems crazy good. I hope DS gets at least one unit that can also do this somehow (or an enhancement that gives them this ability like Chewbacca's Bowcaster does.)

Han just got a lot stronger.

I need to look at the lando again to see if he is worth adding with Han/chewie.

Backtracking a bit to this Dengar discussion, the announcement for the final Force Pack of the Hoth Cycle, Escape from Hoth, partially spoils a Dengar unit card. Obviously this is all speculation, but I'm inclined to believe that that more or less guarantees that we won't be seeing another Dengar in the Edge of Darkness. Multiple versions of the same character will likely largely be limited to the major players of the Star Wars universe--your Vaders, your Lukes, your Hans, your Boba Fetts--and I just don't believe Dengar ranks two cards yet. Particularly as Escape from Hoth and Edge of Darkness will likely be coming out pretty soon to each other.

Yes, he absolutely is.  He combos incredibly well with Han.  You can assign Han to attack, trigger his ability, remove Han from the engagment (laughing at those defenders who now have to strike), then assign Han to attack another objective and trigger his ability again.  Han shoots first twice!  Or, if you lose an edge battle involving Han, you can take Lando's action before your opponent can strike to move a defender home, then use Han's targeted strike to take out the defender anyway.

 

If Lando and Chewie are your only two units on the table, but Chewie has his bowcaster, you can attack with Chewie, lose the edge battle, move Chewie home with Lando and still shoot the defender.  Not quite as combo-tastic as Lando+Han, but still pretty mighty.

From what we have so far, I think Boba Fett with Mandalorian armor is the best option for dealing with Chewbacca. Since Mandalorian Armor gives Boba Fett Targeted Strike, you can target the back-seat-Chewbacca when you attack. Since you are the active player, you choose which reaction to resolve first and choose to capture Chewbacca instead of letting Chewbacca deal massive damage to your units.

The other option is to lock Chewbacca down with focus tokens. The problems with this are 1) If he has been granted the Protect keyword, he'll still cause a headache, and 2) Cloud City Operative can help to ready Chewbacca faster.

Other options include Force Choke and Vader's reaction, not used during an engagement. Or ForceLLightning if there are a bunch of protect wookies around.

I'm a little surprised that Chewbacca is a Smuggler, while Han Solo is not. Hmm.

I suppose another obvious way to deal with Chewbacca is with Bossk. I was worried when I first saw Bossk that he would hardly get a chance to capture Wookiees and get the extra card draw, but now that I've seen Chewbacca's set, I think there's a good bet Chewbacca will be in a lot of S&S decks.

Do we know when the Edge of Darkness is to be released?

I thought mid May was the general date they had aimed for a while back, maybe in conjunction with the third force pack?

 

EDIT: Just looked at the release page, third force pack is listed as may, edge of darkness just as Q2, so anywhere up to June
