2 new articles with upcoming releases of Rebel Commandos and Han Solo, probably have the Imperial releases next week

We're getting articles a certain number of months before their release.  Given the staggered releases, I'd expect the Imperial stuff next month similar to how Leia was announced a month after Veers.

"When defending from a Ranged Attack, during the Apply Cover and Dodge tokens step, you may assign yourself 1 Suppression token" probably

I cant see any use in that? Can you?

Han model looks like Agent Scully doing steampunk cosplay.

Anyway...  looks like some cool stuff.  I really like how you can field the Commandos two different ways.  I think you can field both unit types out of a single box too!

For Imperials I'm expecting probably Scout Troopers w/ some sort of sniper option and whatever leader.  Maybe Grand Moff Tarkin although he seems a bit too similar to Veers in being a back-line support guy.

He's wearing a greatcoat over a waistcoat, both of which are probably full of ammo. That combination will pretty much make anyone look pudgy...

But hey, at least it's not as bad as Leia's sculpt.;)

The pudgy isn't about his figure, it's about his awful face...

The one thing immediately throwing me off about han is probably his hair, just seems oddly neat and plastered over. A good paintjob might be able to salvage the sculpt, we'll have to see what Sorastro does with him.

So, I haven't read the rules (I just bought the game yesterday & it's still shrink wrapped) but Han just seems OP right out the gate.

Am I off my rocker? He gets to shoot twice, and he gains an aim token and a dodge token when you issue "Sorry about the mess".

... and I now have multiple pre-orders for additional Rebel gear.  

This has escalated quickly.

Ehhh... as someone who knows a bit about getting realistic faces onto miniatures... that’s a bad one.  He looks like... hmmm... there is an actor... name is escaping me... an older, pudgy guy.  It’s just... not good.

I've heard that Ford's likeness rights are almost impossible to get...

+1 Suppression means you get +1 Cover. If you're standing in an open field, Commandos can go from no cover to Heavy Cover to just take a Suppression token (keeping in mind you have Courage of 2 already). 

Fitting for a unit taking the specialist role. Han is going to be a walking nightmare for anyone but Vader it seems like.

Veers can probably do okay too. He needs to feed his dice Aim tokens, but he has Sharpshooter 1. 

You mean Veers needs Aim tokens to shoot? You know his Spotter ability to hand out aim tokens can work on himself right? So he can pass an aim token to a squad and then himself then shoot.

So that Comms card that’s partially obscured in the Commando pack is called “HQ U...” and reads “During the...of the Comm...an order.”

Anyone wanna bet the card is called HQ Uplink and the full text is: During the Issue Orders step of the Command Phase, give this unit an order. 

Based on that, I’m betting the card is either very expensive or needs to be exhausted to be used.

I immediately thought Chris Farley in Tommy Boy - fat guy in a little suit.
