Leak from Spiel's convention list has the next GCW releases being Lando and Agent Kallus.

We also seem to have missed out on the Heroes and Legends news in this thread?

Maul is looking good but really excited for the T-Series droid, finally a cheap commander for CIS (55pts).

Prolly gonna grab Agent Kallus. Would be interesting to see if they do ISB Agents to go with him.

Looking forward to the generic clone commander. Always good to have the option for General Nobody.

Lando and Kallus? Nice and, frankly, about time in Lando's case. I really hope FFG isn't going to make us wait as long for Ahsoka, but after R2 and 3PO coming so late as well it looks like they're really dragging out the fan favorites...

Right behind you.

There's probably more licensing stuff surrounding characters like Lando, R2, C3PO and the like.

Kallus is one I kinda expected, didn't expect Lando without Lobot though.

Is that actually a thing? I mean, I don't know how this stuff works in the case of Star Wars, but you'd think Disney threw enough money at Lucas and has the kind of legal department that they have full control over the IP they bought. Right?

I can certainly put the two droids down to being a double faction unit and FFG not releasing them before Clone Wars and thus the Republic was out, but still. Can't help but feel they're making some odd choices with their character releases*.



* I mean, look at the Spiel rumor. Rebels get two characters and Empire gets none. Unfair!

Disney owns the IP, but that doesn't necessarily mean there aren't other bits and bobbles moving in the background as well. My wild, pie in the sky speculation has to do with them wanting to establish a 'canon' point for the characters to get included with Legion. As in, "did this actually happen? did this? did this?" tying them in.

Also, it's possible that these two are not the only thing. They said there's 4 GCW items coming awhile back.

Shouldnt it also have to do with the likeness of actors being put into miniature for?

I think its just a problem with the game engine itself. The core system just doesn't incorporate named characters particularly well beyond the one you take as your commander and a lot of the power from characters comes from the cards they bring, which you can only bring in very limited amounts. It really limits the ways character can be worked into the game.

I guess if you focus on the game there is limited design space and once you got a certain angle covered with a character, there's not much point to having more, similar characters included for gameplay reasons.

Still, with it being Star Wars I'd think that they would want everyone to be able to play with (and more importantly be able to buy ) their favorite characters. And with Star Wars being so driven by named characters, it's something that they had to have considered from the start.

Oh well, maybe it's just me waiting for Ahsoka and Bombad General Jar Jar. Got to pass the time somehow...

There are very definitive hints that Ahsoka's coming.

Anakin's coming and he's helpless without her?

But seriously, there are? That's cool.

Worth mentioning that Lando and the Agent weren't leaked by the 'usual' methods. Spiel Essen posted them in the open rather than hidden.

With mutton chops like those, I'd expect that Imperial to have beskar claws that come out of his hands.
