And reintroducing to Star Wars cannon, the character practically made for this game

Recommended Posts

Grand Admiral Thrawn!

 

 

As soon as I saw this game was released, I hoped they would include him. Now if they do make an expansion he seems like a no brainer:  the Star Wars galaxy's greatest strategist for the greatest Star Wars strategy game of all time, right?

Trying to think of a new character for the Rebels to balance Thrawn, the only ones I can think would be a Rogue Squadron pilot like Wes or Hobbie since every major general, commander and admiral is accounted for (save for Red and Gold leaders from ANH). If FFG wants to get cute with a Disney nod they could add Major Bren Derlin (delivers the bad news to Leia about closing the Echo Base doors), who was played by John Ratzenberger, a Pixar voice regular. He could be a logistics and spec ops character, with an action card that adds a shield generator or troops to the Rebel base.

 

But if Thrawn is going to make the jump from EU to canon maybe Dash Rendar can do the same.

I really don't see FFG making any expansions for this game.  A Rebels themed board game might be in the cards though.  I can't imagine FFG not taking advantage of the huge following that show has gained.

Sorry, Stone, You are correct.  I was thinking back to an earlier discussion of this.  I also was thinking more in line of a bog box centred around Lothal and the Rebels crew.

I'm thinking the same thing. It would be great to be able to play IA as members of the Ghost! I just hope that's the way FFG goes with it. So far, known characters have been introduced as NPCs that can also be used in Scrimmages.

I've heard that an FFG is planning on making an expansion.

My theory if they do add Thrawn is that he will be a 3 3 but with NO skill icons. Making him kinda like Bubba Fett in reverse. It would make him the only 3 3 the empire can get but he'd be balanced because he'd be only good for battles. Feels thematic and it puts Thrawn in a good place in the game where he'd be pretty evenly balanced.
