  1. Ah! And *THAT* cracks the code. Bummer. :-(
  2. How does it not make any sense? My whole point is I'd buy more stuff if Legion figures were compatible with IA. But because of the way it was done, I'm not remotely interested in shelling out for Legion.
  3. I still don't know why they didn't just make the Legion minis work for both games.
  4. I could see including a few iconic Jeddha tiles, like maybe part of a downed giant statue or a tile or two for the marketplace, but otherwise, yeah, beach would be nice.

    Forced Missions ... no more?

    Now that you mention Onar, any of the Heroes in Jabba's Realm could probably flip to the wrong side. And I could see Davith go Dark Side. Another good use of a mechanic like this would be with a character like Agent Kallus from Rebels. I'd love to see an Imperial Villain in a future expansion where a mission or series of missions offer a chance to win him over as an Ally. It might be neat to have a side mission which lets you do so, because there's a chance the Rebels would never see the mission. Or, you could do it as an Interlude Story Mission with literally game changing effect on the second half of the campaign. Now if we could just convince Bitterman to add campaign maps and mission briefings to his amazing set of tools...

    Forced Missions ... no more?

    Wow y'all made my day! :-) Of course now the revised campaign has to finish with a mass invasion of an Imperial base with the Heroes getting every type of regular TROOPER unit as Allies for that mission with the victory condition of freeing prisoners and blowing up the base. (Like just about every Bond film.) "The name's Eshka'rey. Mak Eshka'rey. Give me a blue milk. Shaken, not stirred." :-D

    LOL! a1bert, I'm picturing the IA equivalent of the little teaser mission at the beginning of every James Bond film.

    Imperial Assault Space combat (photos)

    Actually, this reminds me a little of the space combat in another IP FFG has: Battlestar Galactica.
  9. I appreciate the history lesson, Rikalonius. Like subtrendy2, I'm enough of a fan boy to buy anything that comes out. I play mostly campaign, so a bigger variety of figures = a bigger variety of side missions (and - eventually more to paint) . :-) But I would like to see the Bad Dr. and his Aqualish sidekick, regardless.
  10. You totally need to include Dr. Evizan/Ponda Baba as Scum figures. I realize they just have a cameo in R1 and in ANH, but still, so iconic. Arguably more so than 4LOM & Zuckuss (though I want them, too). And if you want a Creature for Scum, what about the one that Saw interrogates Bodhi with?

    Beyond the Rim (custom campaign)

    Really like the idea of special deployment cards for existing figures. A lot of figures get re-purposed this way in existing campaigns, but the only reference to their differing stats or abilities is in the mission briefing. This makes it easier to track and remember.

    So what’s exciting around here?

    Interesting. You'd need a lot more rebel "squaddie" and "heavy" units. (which might also be a way for people playing rebel list in a skirmish t oget more of some of those figures). You'd need re-tooled side missions to get some of the unique Rebel figures as Villains (and probably not all of them). You may want more strategic, less tactical Rebel Villains like Ackbar, Mon Mothma, Madine, etc. for some campaigns. You'd want more tactical, mid-level Imperial functionaries (non-canon) as hero characters. Agent Blaise, Kayn Samos, Captain Terro, RGC are some obvious ones. Might also want an Inquisitor (as opposed to the GI), additional Bounty Hunters, etc. And of course, you'll need Green side missions to get the existing Imperial and Merc units as allies. Be interesting to see how much content they could reuse in the process.
  13. Two words: Wing Guard

    Brilliant! Well done.

    Beyond the Rim (custom campaign)

    This would make a great Imperial Reward card for a side mission.
