I'd like a new Jabba, as well.  It's really exciting: these are my two favorite factions.  I don't know a lot about EU lore, though, so I don't quite know what to expect.  Should be interesting.

You should read Shadow of the Empire. It was part of a multi platform thing that George Lucas did to have a new "film" in the series without making an actual film, had a video game, soundtrack, comic book, trailer and novel all interlocking to tell the story between Episodes V & VI. That is where we meet Xixor and learn how Leia got Boush bounty hunter gear too.

I'm a fantasy guy, but for me, when I read science fiction (once in a blue moon) I care about cool aliens.  xD

 

And Groggy, you meanieface, you forgot my post. 

Which post?

For a while I thought Guri was that adroid from Hit and Run objective, I forget her name.  Er, I mean the human replica droid on recon mission, not hit and run, dur

"Contains twenty-six new objective sets (two copies each of twelve unique sets, and one copy each of two “Limit 1 per objective deck” sets) 

 

So only 1 box  is needed for 2-set-competitive play. Yis.

Correct. This is standard for all LCG deluxe expansions. EoD was an exception because it was essentially the S&S and S&V "core set" and thus needed to have a lot more variety than the typical deluxe expansion box.

The end does it for me in that book - when Lando chucks that thermal detonator into the trash chute or whatever and confirms his badass-ery as I'm going to call it.  Can't recall anything else that brings such a grin to my face from that story arc.

I've seen an omnibus of these comics, but didn't realize there was more.  Interesting.  I'll give the book a look, maybe.  Thanks.

I second Toqtamish. SotE is awesome. The video game wasn't half bad either.

It's been less than a month on the boat. I would think in the next 2-3 weeks we'll see it in stores.

Imperial Assault hit the seas a week before Between the Shadows. As soon as you see news of Imperial Assault hitting the shores, then it's time to start getting read for BtS!

Well, the good thing is that BtS will probably come out just before my birthday, so I won't feel guilty buying it.  And I might get Imperial Assault for Christmas, but maybe Descent instead.  Agh.

Still sticking with my initial estimate of first or second week of December.  This game has been pretty consistent with 6 weeks on the boat, then 1-2 weeks for shipping.
