In this month's Game Trade Magazine, you can see a few more previews, or at least pieces of some. In the first CP there is an Imperial Navy Darth Vader, a Jedi enhance or event (can't tell) called Old Ben's Spirit, and one other card I can't remember.

I'll get one up either later today or tomorrow when I head in to the shop. I should have though of this sooner >.<

So how do you all feel about a Navy Darth Vader and a Sith Darth Vader?  You know a Rebel Luke will happen in the Hoth Cycle as well.  Rebel Han will happen sooner or later too.  Any other crossovers you can think of?

I would have been rather upset if the new Vader had been Sith. Imp Navy is fine, neutral would also be acceptable.

Based on what we can see, I'm gonna say Vader's full info goes something like this:

*Darth Vader
Cost: 5
Force Icons: 4
Combat Icons: 2x Unit, 1x Edge Blast
Elite (Remove an additional focus token from this unit when you refresh.)
While Darth Vader is attacking, each of your attacking Trooper units gains [unit Damage].
4 Damage Capacity

Also, the Probe Droid card from the Desolation spoiler is in the same objective set (41).

Here is a picture from the Game Trade Magezine I promised. Vader seem like he has some type of attacking unit buff. Could be good with all the Navy small dudes.

Thank you! And glad they used that artwork. Love that picture it is my desktop wallpaper now that I found it on deviant.

I have updated the main post with the info we now have, would have been done sooner but forums and most of FFG have been inaccessible all day till now.

I like that we are getting another Vader. It seems early as it is the first pack but still it's Darth Freaking Vader so it is not a bad thing having another version of one of fictions most iconic villains. I think what we can tell of his ability is very fitting, represents him "inspiring" the troops with his presence. I have already built an Imperial Navy swarm deck and this looks like it will be right at home there.

Likely text on Probe Droid:

2 cost

1 Damage Capacity

Edge blast icon

"Interrupt: When this unit leaves play, deal 1 damage to target enemy objective."

Anyone had any luck getting a pic of these three cards ? I hope the art for Imperial Vader is the art from A Dark Time with the snowtroopers.  

 

Wow you must be psychic

Your reaction and other's are exactly what he/she is looking for. Don't feed the trolls, people.

Also, some great cards (not all, but enough). Can't wait.
