    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.

    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.

    for x-wing it would be similar to giving a con ship a slightly smaller or larger base, so not miniature related.  It just happens that it is miniature related in Legion.  It would stand to reason that if FFG is ok giving one of their games that treatment they would be willing to do it with all of them.

    honestly i bet they had been planning the clone wars since the beginning.  It seems to fit this style of game better than the GCW.  Also Alex Davey said that the had the first two years of content already planned out and the clone wars should definitely fall into that time frame.  I'm guessing that they will either time the clone wars with the start of the new season of the show or release it during the big Star Wars release day in September.  They might wait until the holidays but that might take away from any tie in with the new movie.

    Firelock Games has an Island set for their pirate game. The two larger peices could be used to create that type of area.

    The more i think about it, the more i think the size of the play area is a problem with the t-47.  I mean the T-47s main strength should be its speed, it should swoop in make a strafing run then clear the area turn around and come repeat.  With the relatively small play area the T-47 is forced to circle over enemy troops which is a position that the T-47 doesn't want to be in.

    honestly, i wouldn't mind IF it was world wide, but as far as i know, it's US only, and even if they announce it in europe, i bet it won't be for my country...

    This is what disturb me here... But it's a nice idea... just don't make it too much exclusive,.

    I am disappointed slightly too, mainly cause I just cant afford to GO to the location to buy the minature. I could prob affford the 20 dollars or whatever they are charging for it, and ID even get at least 2, as the Classic Brown would look good going up against the N1s. but its litterely only going to be availible at ONE location in the middle of no where,  IL. I dont understand how minature collector companies think everyone has big buco dollars to go to conventions to get there stuff, when they could make more money selling them online to everyone. This is just bad marketing because its not FFG that makes the money, its the scalpers on the 3rd party markets.

    I think LE figures are best when released at a con AND sold directly via the company site for folks who won’t be at the con. Both Privateer Press and Wyrd did this many times.

    IG-88 will be making an appearance as either a character or crew.  So IG-88 could be one of the 3 and it would add another bounty hunter.  That is from this quote from the product page:
    Lando Calrissian may excel at rigging a game of sabacc, but IG-88 is more likely blast a hole in an organic!

    I would like to see more keywords like Bounty.  Something like Smuggle: A unit with Smuggle can place a contraband token on that unit.  At the end of the game if you have a unit with Smuggle and a contraband token in your opponents deployment zone then you gain a victory point.  If a unit that has a contraband token is defeated the token remains on the play area where the unit was defeated.  A unit with Smuggle may pick up a contraband token that is laying on the play area.
