    that could work, but i still think we will see some of the major crime characters like Jaba and Maul.  They, especially Jaba, don't fit with the other factions.

    It would be interesting to include Tusken Raiders and other cool units that don't fit in a faction as a Battlefield expansion.  They could be released with related deployment, condition, objective cards.

    Separate damage and accuracy dice to give better distinction between weapons, particularly missiles and torpedoes. Missile should hit more often but not nearly as hard as torpedoes and those should rarely hit anything with a halfway decent agility value but when they do hit like a mac truck.

    The ATST already has a rule for that with the weakness: Rear keyword.  The other thing is that the storm troopers only disable it with their regular blasters, they have to bring in a heavy weapon to destroy it.  I would also imagine that an ATST is more armored than an x-wing because an x-wing has shields to protect it.

    I'd be happy have either one even as terrain. Downed LAAT might be cool for a clone wars version of Downed AT-ST.

    Yeah, he was basically the architect behind the whole thing.  I see him paired off with Master Yoda for the Republic.  I can also see him being a commander for the Republic.  His Republic commander would be cheaper and have more of a support role, where his CIS commander would be more like a mixture of Vader and the Emperor for the Empire.  They could be called
    Emperor Palpatine - Empire
    Chancellor Palpatine - Republic
    Darth Sidious - CIS

    I, personally, don't really see too much similarity between Deathtroopers and Stormtroopers.   The helmet is different, and barring unsanctioned painting of Imperial troops, they are easy enough to differentiate.  
    I’ve said it before, that all that really makes the sandtrooper a sandtrooper and not a stormtrooper is the gear they have, which with an upgrade (environmental gear) you have them.  
    That being said, having the extra backpacks pauldrons, etc in a rereleased sprue based Stormtrooper expansion pack would basically print money for FFG.

    I think some form of reconfigure would be the easiest way to handle changing forms.  It would allow them to print the different stats on the back side of the card and it would take an action to flip.  This would prevent someone from using the greater speed of the rolling form and the attack in the same round without some way of getting more than 2 actions a round.

    I'm hoping they don't add a generic Scum faction, I want some actual gang factions.

    It was one of the questions asked in the Q&A part of the FFG panel at Adepticon.  They said that there will be a rules update that says they can't be used at the same time.

    The way I see it is the Empires next Corps will have a training upgrade and a heavy weapon that is a detachment.  That's as far as the similarities would go.

    I think it's likely to be Shore troopers.  There is going to be the whole scarif board thing which would tie in to the shore trooper thing.  The Shore troopers also have a heavy weapon setup that mirrors that of the Rebel Veterans.  The heavy options would be the E-22 and reciprocating quad blaster cannon.  As they were seen mixed in with storm troopers they could also have their extra mini have a card that allows it to become the leader of a storm trooper unit similar to the generic commander.
    however i would like it to be the Imperial Navy troopers as they are the last trooper option that got screen time in an actual battle during the OT.

    What I want: Probe Droid for support, Mudtroopers/Imperial Army troopers as a cheap infantry option.  Slightly larger unit size, Imperial equivalent of the Z-6 for heavy weapons, with a keyword or two that work with playing defensive with them.  Imperial Navy troopers would be a great option as well, treating them as a specialist unit that has various options for personnel. 
    What I expect:  Dewbacks for the support, and Shoretroopers.  
    What I fear: Dewbacks and Sandtroopers (blah)

    the thing is this sculpt looks to be significantly taller, so it will be harder to hid him in terrain.

    What I wish is that this con exclusive was available in the FFG store during the Con, then was "no longer available". I know some other vendors do that... Although, one vendor does have those limited edition figures on sale once a year while supplies last.

    jcmonson got a reaction from Andreu in Anyone going to Celebration? (Exclusive Sculpt)   
    At least for me, I'm bothered because it does actually change the game. I use a bunch of the Battlefield in a box desert terrain.  The desert escarpments is the exact same height as the core set Vader.  It does block LOS to him while he's behind it.  Since this new Vader is taller because he's standing on rocks, LOS would not be blocked because his head and probably chest would be exposed.  My issue is that FFG decided to release a expansion of an already released character with a different 3d footprint, in a game where that kinda thing is important, as a Con exclusive.  In this case it makes it worse for me, but it's the precedent that it sets that bothers me.
