new movies stuff

I'm usually picky about custom cards but you've done a great job with both versions of Kylo Ren. I think this puts him up there with Vader and Jedi Luke as a strong melee figure without borrowing too heavily from their own tricks/mechanics. Mind Probe is a neat and thematic EOR effect too! I give your Kylo Ren 5 out of 5 "TRAITORS!" Great work, keep it up!

Edit: Rey is so broken, no joke. Self-Taught Fighter offers too much benefit and too much aggro for no cost. Mind Trick is way too powerful; look to 0-0-0's Unnerving for reference. Conditions are his whole shtick and he's not a strong fighter. Foresight Protection would be great if it was her only OP ability, and it was "a friendly figure," so she could give herself Foresight as well. Combined with the other two abilities for 10 points, and BGG, and surge +2dmg, and surge Pierce 3, it's all Mary Sue as all heck.

Rey is a great combatant but has too many overpowered abilities. I'd drop some of them and tone down the rest. I give your Rey 5 out 5 "SPARKS, THAT WILL LIGHT THE FIRE, THAT WILL BURN THE FIRST ORDER DOWN." She is as ridiculous as that movie quote.

Honestly, it should have always been called "Rebel Assault" because those filthy terrorists deserve no quarter.

Plus, the vast majority of games have the Rebels on the offensive instead of vice-versa.

What about this one for Rey?   I really apreciate your feedback

Hey this is much better! I hadn't even realized how high her Speed was so that's a good change, down to 4 (plus 2 from Self-Taught, potentially). The change to her dice pool is still good for melee figures but less consistently strong, and your adjustment to Protection is fair. I'd even make Protection "+1 evade AND +1 block. Limit once per round," to separate it from Onar's ability.

I'd be willing to see your take on Finn as a strong Rebel Trooper, but i guess we do already have Ko-Tun Feralo and Fenn Signis. Maybe you could do Captain Phasma as a new and improved Kayn Somos but with a blaster and a Stun melee option.

As for the Kylo Ren card, I'd make his mind probe a special action - it always was depicted as something that takes a moment and effort, not something quick and easy.

Also, I like it when cards for characters represent what defines and drives these characters (I love what they did with Maul, Palpatine and Ahsoka, for example), not just some fancy abilities.

In Kylo Ren's case, he always goes into a rage when he fails, not when he suffers injury - this is what defines an important aspect of his charakter. I'd give him a 'Rage' special ability that revolves around that - for example, he could become focused after his attack misses or fails to deal damage, or that he becomes focused each time your opponent's victory point-score exceeds yours.

In the case of Rey, you could mirror this aspect in the positive and center it around her optimistic and hopeful personality by giving her a special ability that allows you to draw an additional command card during the draw command card-phase if your opponent's victory point-score exceeds yours.

Something along these lines.

Where's the Rose upgrade attachment (Finn only)?  -7 points, "Treat Finn's card as if it were blank. At the end of each activation, Finn takes 1 strain"

I'm tempted to do a series of NT characters based on my own perception of the characters, but I don't want to be disrespectful of an earnest attempt by OP.
