  1. Well I’m not sure where I come down on the TaunTaun debate, but I do think it’s curious that the name Tauntaun sounds like the music for Jaws. Taun...taun... taun...taun... taun...taun.
  2. I thought he was expensive at 35, but maybe he’s too cheap.😳😋
  3. So R2’s 2 pip has Blast and you can see two B2 Super battle droids and fire (as in the scene from RoTS). Judging from the Smoke token, looks like his 3 pip is about that ( 🧯 ). And why no Standby token (not that you’ll want to with him, just odd). And since they pushed back its delivery date, not even clones will get a new unit before the end of the year. Well, guess we still have the corps unit upgrades.😒😢
  4. I knew they would end up pushing back on some of the units expected this year.😢 There were 4 unit and only 3 1/2 months left. As for repair, the update seems to address R2 specifically. RRG pg59 Repair X:Capacity Y (Upgrade Keyword) ”Repair x: capacity y is a free card ability and can be used as a free action during a unit’s activation. When a unit uses the repair x: capacity y ability, place one wound token on the card that has the repair x: capacity y keyword, and choose a friendly droid trooper or vehicle unit at range 1 and in line of sight. Remove a total of up to x wound, ion, and/or vehicle damage tokens from the chosen unit or restore up to x miniatures to that unit. This ability cannot be used if the card that has the repair x: capacity y keyword has a number of wound tokens on it equal to or exceeding y.” So it looks like 1 use = 1 wound token on R2’s card and does 2 repairs. At least that’s how I read it.
  5. That makes it better than Luke’s original 1 pip. Not only do you get the extra attack, but denying an Aim too...😈
  6. If you use Luke’s 1 pip on a Suppressed enemy trooper, can you use any Aim or Surge tokens it may have?
  7. There is still the corps upgrade expansions, which come out before the end of the year, but I know what you mean, it does stink. 😒😥
  8. I know, but I like the crisp images. It’s better for the list building sites etc.🥺
  9. I find it irritating that FFG reveals a card that has already been spoiled in a previous article, instead of going with the Hope upgrade card.😒
  10. Yeah, when I finally noticed and mentioned it, the card had already been found and talked about for about a day. I pretty much got the same response, “Yeah, we know. We already talked about that.” But... but... I didn’t. 🥺 I can’t wait for the Escape Pod article where we’ll finally see the unit that 3PO belongs to (the R2-D2 unit card).😬😳🥺
  11. You can also check on your local area’s FaceBook Star Wars Legion pages. You might find someone to split sets with or at least unload the extra bits you don’t want.
  12. Sorry, that was out last update. People have talked lots about possible counterparts, like K2-S0 and Cassian, etc.
  13. It looks cool, but how would it be different (aside from the weapon’s look) from Snowtrooper flamers? He actually kinda looks like a Snowtrooper too. Wonder if the Rebels will get the knight, or any Knights (aside from Obi), that survived order 66, even though they don’t live to RoTJ?
  14. So I’m not what you would call wealthy, so I need to plan out purchases, and it just seems like we know a lot is coming, but not really know when they are coming. Just so I got the whole list, so I can make my poor wallet’s suffering not so painful all at once, this is a list of what we know and when it will come. Please let me know if this is right, or if I missed something or if you have heard dates (even rumours). Thanks in advanced. Luke & Vader (Operative Expansions) - they haven’t really said what expansions are coming next, but I’m guessing this is coming this month since it recently had the most attention. Clone Wars Core Set - I believe the rumours are that this will be coming in the next couple of weeks, but by the end of the month at the latest. Clone Wars Phase 1 Clone Trooper Expansion - I think these will come at the same time as the CW core sets (See CW Core set above). Clone Wars BARC Speeder Expansion - I think these will come at the same time as the CW core sets (See CW Core set above). Clone Wars B1 Battle Droid Expansion - I think these will come at the same time as the CW core sets (See CW Core set above). Clone Wars Droidekas Expansion - I think these will come at the same time as the CW core sets (See CW Core set above). The Escape Pod Terrain Expansion - This may be a terrain expansion, but it also contains the R2 & 3PO unit and we don’t have a month set for this, but it comes out before the end of this year. Corps Unit Upgrade Expansions - There is one of these for each faction and again, we haven’t been told when, but that it will be out before the end of the year. Imperial Bunker Terrain Expansion - Also set to be out before the end of the year. Count Dooku Commander Expansion - Set to come out in the first quarter of 2020. Rex Clone Commander Expansion - Also set to come out in the first quarter of 2020. Phase 2 Clone Trooper Expansion - Also set to come out in the first quarter of 2020. B2 Super Battle Droids Expansion - Also set to come out in the first quarter of 2020. AAT Trade Federation Battle Tank Expansion - Also set to come out in the first quarter of 2020. TX 130 Saber-Class Fighter Tank Expansion - Also set to come out in the first quarter of 2020. Dewback Expansion - For most of us the Dewbacks haven’t hit shelves yet, but afaik it’s supposed to be out this month. Again, please let me know if I missed something. Also I thought there were two unaccounted for SKUs, but the Obi exclusive would take one of the unaccounted SKUs. Does that mean we have one product that hasn’t been announced yet?
  15. I just realized my post was incorrect. It’s the corps upgrade expansions (1 for each faction) that is coming out before the end of the year and not the B2 and Phase 2 Troopers. The B2s and Phase 2s will be out in the first quarter of 2020. Sorry for the confusion.
  16. Yep, you’re right, I missed that. They are supposed t be out before the end of year.
  17. Yes. AFAIK they are releasing BARCs, Phase 1 clones, B1 Battdroids, and Droideka at the same time as the core sets, but each of those extra expansions are contained in the core sets. See the previous posts for a value breakdown. The next expansions for CIS (droids), and Republic (Clones) will be B2 Super Battledroids and Phase 2 clone Troopers, both of which will be different corps units. They are set to release sometime before the end of this year. If you’re also playing clones (and not splitting your core sets with someone), you can also get the Escape Pod expansion which also comes out before the end of the year and will contain R2-D2 and C-3PO, who can be added to a Republic army. The next expansions, Heavy vehicles and a second commander, come out in the first quarter of 2020.
  18. 🎼Send in the Clones...🎼 Isn't it rich? Are we a pair? Me here at last on the ground, You in mid-air, Where are the clones? Isn't it bliss? Don't you approve? One who keeps tearing around, One who can't move, Where are the clones? There ought to be clones? Just when I'd stopped opening doors, Finally knowing the one that I wanted was yours Making my entrance again with my usual flair Sure of my lines No one is there Don't you love farce? My fault, I fear I thought that you'd want what I want Sorry, my dear! But where are the clones Send in the clones Don't bother, they're here Isn't it rich? Isn't it odd? Losing my timing this late in my career But where are the clones? There ought to be clones Well, maybe next year
  19. So in those cases the corps units (especially those with range 4 like the ubiquitous DLT) will be their own sniper support or a unit that can take one down. Despite the extra activations, I think sniper strike teams will be far less prevalent, not gone, but definitely less prevalent.
  20. Maybe, but remember the table is 6 feet long and range 5 is only 2 and 1/2 feet, so you might find you have to move in a little closer to other units than you wanted. Units like Speederbikes, Droideka, BARCs, T-47s, Boba and Sabine, all of which can close to range 3 in a single round, some of which can also fire in that round. The thing about range 5 is that, the sniper war may have ended, but regular units have a chance to fight back now. Where as before snipers were immune unless there were snipers on the other side.
  21. Too true. The question is, is the T-47 even worth 140 points? I don’t think there is another unit that is really comparable, so it’s hard to say.
  22. The code on the proof of purchase tokens are not unique. They are unique to the unit, but not unique from the same type of unit, so a rebel trooper unit expansion will have the same number as another rebel trooper unit expansion. Also there is nothing that would stop someone from getting that number or a pic of that token, so it wouldn’t prove much. For that, why not just make a PDF of all cards available? The articles that FFG releases provides pics of all unit cards as is, so there is not much stoping anyone from printing what they want, or even editing, then printing.
  23. Yeah, but it is the worst unit in the game, so don’t begrudge it a little extra help.😊
  24. Yeah, but keeping the old price is in-line with their “these are only competitive changes” shenanigans.
