Also you’re skipping the part where he overthrew ******* Mandalore.

Was it the weak, pacifist, nucanon Mandalore? Sure. But still.

His and Opress’s prison breakout scene is truly the best part of the entire series. Practical Force Power use, so refreshing.

Oh, pal, there is SO much more weirder things in Legends.  Trust me, this is tame by comparison. 

i know, i just doubt they'll add legends things to the game : (

And that right there is what I hate about the reboot.  We lose so much awesome stuff!

Post-reboot we have been seeing some of the cool things from legends be reintroduced back into canon, such as Thrawn, and we'll likely see more given time.

Don't think of it as losing said ‘stuff’, but it heroically sacrificing itself to remove all the horrible creations that went along with the good..

Not that there wasn't any, but could you list three things in Legends we are better off without?  I want to know what to avoid.

The Force Unleashed 2? The confusion regarding how many times the death star plans were stolen?

Yes to all of the above with a sideorder of Naboo N-1 starfighters  :)

I like the Gungan's organic aesthetic too; Gungan Catapults and kaadu riders would be great to see.

I know you mean in the game, but if you want an N-1 that's basically perfectly in-scale for terrain, check ebay for the old AMT/ERTL Naboo N-1 model kit. It's dead easy to assemble and is pre-coloured/chromed for people who don't care for painting. You can usually grab them for about £5-10 on auction, or 15-ish BIN.

i want clone commandos and who can forget shock troopers like fox Thorn and all of them i like horn company in the  episode were Eth koth got. captured form grievous and a clone saves hes life

The good news is that clone commandos are canon (they appear in a couple of Clone Wars eps) and they fit well into existing unit types (I imagine them as a Republic equivalent to Pathfinders or Death Troopers).

Wouldn't that slot better be filled by ARC troopers?

Aside from that, clones have great spec ops potential between those two and ARF-Troopers (equivalent for Commandos and Scout Troopers?)

No, ARCs would be better as a generic operative option.  We only see them work in teams twice in the EU, both in original CW cartoon, while their normal depiction was working solo.  In TCW, we saw them work in pairs, at most, which is certainly doable within Legion's force structure without giving them a multi-mini unit.

Darth Maul, Asajj Ventress, Savage Opress and their lesser known friend Sick Benchpress.


Geonosians as a low defense, high speed core unit with built in Jump 2 would be great for CIS. 
 

But most importantly...

Figured I wanted to share my hopes and two cents for upcoming characters and units for the Clones Wars era of Legion.

For Commanders in the Republic...

Anakin Skywalker - An obvious choice as one of, if not THE main character and focus of the Clone Wars, and can compliment against Count Dooku as a force user. I'd love to get him in his "General" outfit.

Yoda - Having a smaller figure would be pretty neat in my opinion, probably with different poses to compensate for not getting as much plastic. 

Mace Windu - Another Jedi that many would love, that, and I'd love an excuse to paint someone whom has a purple lightsaber canonically.

As for Operatives...

Ashoka Tano - Even though she led troops into battle, she'd probably be best used as an operative here. She usually seemed to operate on her own, and could complement working with Anakin, Rex, and/or Obi-Wan.

Quinlan Vos - This Jedi did in fact work as an operative, rarely working with Clones. I'd love to use him and Obi-Wan together.

Other units for the Republic...

Advanced Recon Commandos (ARC Troopers) - Elite Clone Troopers trained by Jango Fett. What's not to love?

Shock Troopers - Clones, probably with Phase 2 armor, possibly with Guardian.

All Terrain Recon Transport (AT-RT) - Republic version with Clones. Not much else to say about that.

Low Altitude Assault Transport (Republic Gunship) - A colossal sized unit that can carry Clones and Jedi. I don't know if this is realistic to get in the game, but would be pretty sweet.

Commanders for the Separatists...

Kalani (Super Tactical Droid) -  I can definitely see him being a release, opposite of Anakin Skywalker, and one in size comparison to Clone Commander Rex.

Darth Sidious - His figure would actually be that Droid that you see in TPM that projects a hologram of his character. His figure can use a translucent substance, to give a look of a hologram, and would probably be really easy to paint. He'd more than likely be kind of cheap in this case. I can see him being released opposite of Yoda.

Darth Maul - TPM version, released opposite of Mace Windu. Would just be a cool unit and character to have, and everyone knows why. 😉

And their Operatives...

Asajj Ventress - The Assassin of the Separatists forces. I can see her being opposite of Quinlan Vos, as those two had a thing in their book.

Cad Bane - Bounty Hunter whom had worked for the Separatists forces on multiple occasions. They too deserve a figure with dual pistols like Rex. Probably released opposite of Ashoka Tano.

Other units...

BX-Series Commando Droids - These guys would be released opposite of the ARC Troopers, like in Battlefront 2.

IG-100 Magna Guards - Droids with Guardian, whom also usually hang around General Grievous and Count Dooku, released opposite of Shock Troopers.

DSD1 Dwarf Spider Droid - I think an obvious inclusion, opposite of the AT-RTs.

HMP Droid Gunship - Release opposite of the LAAT, and can be outfitted as a transport for droids, or a heavy attack vehicle.

Those are my thoughts and wishlist. Pretty sure a majority of these are already being made, which I know we will see in the near-future.

I will say that I am currently non-plussed with one thing; the fact that the sabre tank comes with Aayla Secura and Plo Kloon upgrade cards, means these characters may be currently shelved for purposes of Expansions/commander potential.  

Still, the phase II clones seem to be occupying the veteran niche, so there is hope that we will get a plethora of Jedi Generals.
