Another unit I couldn't care less about.  Good to those that want another Luke, but I still want to know why they decided to go with these now, and not give units to the factions that actually need them?  Pretty bad that CW will need to wait 6 months for their first heavy options, but by golly, we'll rush a second Luke and Vader out! 

I find the whole situation very strange and looking at the numbers of each unit makes me wonder if something happened? Rex and Dooku should have been after the Core set which could have given us more options, but maybe the last two missing units will be Clone Wars (unless the rumors are true..........)?

On the notorious scoundrels podcast the designers confirmed that LFL came to them and requested that they roll out Original trilogy character merchandise in the midst of their clone wars design cycle.

They said that they were always planning on doing different versions of characters but they didn't expect to do them this soon. We will see more of them but not for a while as they do indeed want to focus on getting new characters out.

It was cool listening to their design process for the new operative Luke and Vader though. Im excited to have them breath new life into iconic characters. Vader needed the help and Luke needed a new option to mix up his playstyle.

I'm hoping that the rumors are just that, and the two "missing" skus are something like a Specialists Pack, to bring the new factions up to speed in terms of faction specific command cards, medics, repair droids, and generic officers.  Be cool to use the chance to further differentiate the new factions, by having the repair droid be the one that heals droid troopers, while the Republic medic is actually a combatant.

Is this including the card upgrade packs?

Hmm?  I'm not understanding the question.  The card pack is a confirmed product; the rumors I'm talking about are the Cassian and Iden commander expansions that were talked about a week or so back.  While I don't hate the two characters, I'd much rather see them pushed waaaay back until we had better options for the GAR and CIS.
