Spark of Hope

Not sure we needed another Rey and Kylo, but Ewoks are a welcome addition. Hopefully we'll see more of them soon with red, blue and other yellow options.

Temporary Truce is a cool mechanic I'd love to see on Asajj-Obi-Wan if the points would work.

Given the possessed downgrade, I wonder if we'll see Old Daca. I am still hopeful for Pong Krell as a blue villain with the option for two double-bladed lightsabers like Rex's Pistols and Palpatine's Sabers.

Finally, it's nice to see a good Trawn, though I expect he'll be as annoying as current Jyn.

The most amusing thing about Temporary Truce, to me, is that Kylo from the Two Player Game will love playing against it, due to the mono-color nature of it. Since you don't have to stick to only the new versions of Rey and Kylo, you could play that old version with that plot, and either version of Rey, though you'd have to give up a character die to do it. Not sure if it's worth it, given the potential reroll of the character dice on the new versions.

Glad to see we're finally getting ewoks, and I kinda like the "no dice" mechanic on the warriors, but why are Chirpa and the warrior both yellow instead of red? If Boss Nass and the generic gungan warriors are red, then shouldn't these guys be red, too? Other than Paploo, of course - the speeder thief is clearly a rogue.

We're also getting a new C-3PO in this set, based on the box art, with his original look. I hope his subtitle is something like "ewok god", so he can have the ewok subtype along with the droid subtype, to work with the other subtype stuff in this set.

There's also this post, showing a pic with a character version of R2 (why is he blue?), so I'm hoping the new 3PO is also a character. And they've spoiled a new version of Maul, who is not bad, but I agree with that article about him being not good enough for the cost.

You might get your wish in that C-3PO will be a RED character and the ewoks yellow. So you still get your mix and match. Just not Ewoks as red.

It's also why Padme1 is Yellow, while Padme2 is Red. Is there really a difference in that story character versions? Had they shown midriff Padme who was more a leader in the clone wars, then it would make sense.
