Stratos may want to start an Official thread, but until then here's a link to Gleemax where they have a pic of an Imperial Entanglements booster.

Rob confirmed Darth Vader (at Gencon I think). So add to that Emperor Palpatine, Luke Skywalker Rebel Commando and another Scout Trooper.

Interesting find... is this the 1st we've seen pix of a product nearly a year out?

So I wonder how they're going to reprint Boba this time :P Personally I want to see a new Thrawn, Daala (to go along with the Tarkin mini I have), a reprint of the Universe AT-ST, Zuckass, Jodo Kast (as at least a rare so I can flesh out my Mondern era Mando armies), and above all else because it's about blooming time already a Pellaeon mini.

Just sold off my Universe AT-ST.

Daala would be interesting but I don't care much for Imps these days.

Fett will be "Sarlacc Bait" Fett. :)

I'm looking forward to a new Palpatine. Granted, I'm still playing with my RS Palpy, but I'd love to see what kind of bells and whistles they put on him this time.

I'm hoping for a powerful Palpatine, or at least a powerful CE. If the mini has him onhis throne thoughI wonder how he will work movement wise? Or is it a hover-chair? :D

Luke I'm expecting to have Stealth to gain super-stealth off the Commando Leader.

I guess we can expect a Han, Leia & Chewie too, so that's pretty much the Rebel Rare slots taken! I'd like to see maybe a Rebel Mon Mothma and General Madine.

Imperial wise, I dunno. I'd like to see an Imperial Dignitary and Imperial Inquisitor. Maybe a COMPNOR trooper?

As for Fringe, Maybe another Prince Xizor. Maybe Snoova, Klatu & Yak Face. And I would still like to have a generic Hutt as well as more aliens like Barabel, Squib & Whiphids.

For those interested Wizards and swmgamers.com both have some Imperial Entanglements previews up.

Based on the preview over at WotC, looks like we're getting our new Thrawn wish. As someone who plays Imps 99% of the time, this is finally a pack that interests me. :D

The new Lobot looks pretty good, but I'm most interested to see what the do with the new Palpatine and new Thrawn.

A little off topic, but we need a new Revan who can out-amazing Vader's Apprentice. ;)

umm is it just me or is that Scout Trooper just a reprint pose from the Alliance And Empire Scout Trooper? Ahh Alliance and Empire, the minis line that nobody wants to talk about :P

cheshire
17 February 2009, 06:26 PM
I dunno... I really liked my Luke Skywalker, Marilyn Monroe Lookalike.

But yeah, it's the same Scout Trooper.

New preview...

Bacta Tank:
http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=starwars/article/ImperialBactaPreview

It's a pretty interesting idea. I wonder how useful it will wind up being.

Well, put a ranged beatstick and 2-1B or some other medic next to the bacta tank and you've got something pretty scary for just 15 points. :)

Think about this. Cade Skywalker can heal for 40. Stick him by the droid, and then put Tarpals in the squad. He's healing for 160 in one turn.

Combine that with the place switching ability of Panaka, and then extend the range with Mas Ameda, now you have the ability to switch your beatstick anywhere he is on the board with some cheap filler, and heal your beatstick for up to 160.

Some people are getting their booster packs in from Hong Kong. Some of the stats are looking interesting. I thought I'd post the 3 point mouse droid.

Whiphid Tracker is one of my top wants, I want about 10 of these mainly for RPG use.

Mouse Droid, if there was ever a game changing piece. The Mouse Droid is going to be a big boost to Rebels, Mando's and Vong.

The irony of Vong using mouse droids. :rolleyes:

LOL I alwya s thought there should be a restriction of droids in Vong squads. Also things like Mistryl shadow Guard should not be on an Imperial squad.

Anyway, most of the stats are now posted on the WOTC boards. Thrawn and the new Vader are pretty sweet.

I've been looking at the stats on Bloomilk since Friday night. Bloomilk was pretty quick to get things updated since the stats broke on the WotC board.

The Trhawn is an interesting piece, since it grants opportunist to ALL allies. I'd like to put him with someone who already has cunning. You get the +4 and +10 no matter what.

Then add the new Vader & Mas who will grant everyone Extra Attack!

Just think, Boba BH with for chances at the Big D! 8o

The combinations are going to be just sick with the new Black and Blue squads. Extra attack with opportunist... if they're 10 point shooters then you put in a Czerka scientist and now they're twin attacking with that.

It looks like it's going to be an interesting fight with the new minis.

Emperor Palpatine on Throne
Cost:33
Hp:130
Def:21
Att:+0
Dam:0

SA's: Unique, Evade, Emplacment

Force 3, Force Renewal 3
Force Lightning 3(Force 3, replaces turn: range 6; 40 damage to target and 2 characters adjacent to the targt. Huge and smaller characters are considered activated this round; save 11)
Force Push 2

CE: Characters in your squad can spend Emperor Palpatine's force points.

Nice Force battery. Emplacement means some thought will have to go into playing him.

But General Rieekan is the game changer for Rebels, granting Allies Mobile & Evade!

Admiral Zaarin
5 March 2009, 01:51 PM
Palpy could be using that lightning EVERY round!!! 8o

cheshire
6 March 2009, 04:41 AM
Yes, but since he has emplacement, he can't move. People would have to willingly walk within 6 squares of him in order for Plapy to get it off every round. And if someone does get that close, they're likely to be right up on him. You can't use Force lightning on an adjacent character without risking getting shocked yourself.

You can't stick him in gambit and expect him to last too terribly long without bodyguards.

It's a fabulous piece, but you've got to be careful how you use him.

Sithspawn
7 March 2009, 03:03 PM
I was just thinking about using the X-1 Viper sat in front of Palpy, a square away. Non-accurate shooters risk the shot bouncing back, but get close and not only does the Viper get two attacks but Paly can zzap!! Again, situational depending on the map.

Sithspawn
21 March 2009, 02:07 AM
Anyone get their IE minis yet? I picked up a case a couple of days ago. I'm just missing Xizor, Vader, Rieekan and C-3P0.

What stands out to me is generally how good the scuplt and paint is on the Common and Uncommon minis. The Tw'lek and Ewok for example looks so much better than Arica (Mara Jade).

Emperor Palptine on Throne is one of the best looking minis in the set.

cheshire
22 March 2009, 04:25 AM
I haven't played with it yet, but I special ordered an Emperor on throne from eBay. I plan on using it to tweak a squad that has worked pretty decent in the past. I'll post later and say how it went.

Sithspawn
22 March 2009, 05:47 AM
While a decent piece Palp on Throne is totally screwed against Mobile shooters.

Sure he can evade, but not forever.

cheshire
23 March 2009, 03:24 AM
And pretty much defenseless against a Vong or an adjacent Grand Admiral Thrawn.

bought 4 boosters just this week, and Amazon didn't disappoint.

Luke in commando garb, Thrawn, C3PO ewok deity, Mouse droids, and twilek black sun vigo, are just some of the nice ones I got out of the 4.
