    Just imagine the Fry 'shut up and take my money' image here. Just fingers crossed Corran has useful card text. Yeah he turns into a bit of a Mary Sue, especially in 'I, Jedi', but damn if those books weren't awesome way back in middle school. I'm somewhat afraid to go back and read them now...

    I can't say I'm at all surprised that there'll be a Rebel aces set.

    I'm hoping theres more than just X and A wing Ace pilot cards. But, probably not.

    Seems logical. I hope they include Plourr Ilo. Or Shira Brie. One of the female pilots anyway...

    Edit: Actually I'd be more surprised if we didn't see a rogue Squadron set at some point to be honest, rather surprised we are getting the Imperial elite pack first. Then again rebels are getting a corvette and transport.

    Ask not the EldarGal a question, for she will give you three answers, all of which are puns and terrifying to know. Back off man, I'm a feminist. Ia! Ia! Gloppal Snode!

    Will definitely pick up a set or two of any rogue squad box if it's released as I loved the books back in the day!

    I'm sure the Imperials would have recieved a large vessel too... if they had them small enough. Star Destroyer still would be the size of a gaming table, even if scaled down to the Corvette...

    Lancer frigate would work beautifully, though.

    A-Wing cards would be great as then they will hopefully get more useful abilities. They are hardly taken for anything except maybe a cheap (for Rebels) missile delivery.
