    Hey guys whats up, i want the next spot in line, i can't wait for the New Hope expasion,

    here i brought some pizza, fresh from domino's, and i got some cheese sticks.

    i want to see the character cards, and some of the battle cards. I don't think Luke will be as powerful as he will when the ROTJ expasion comes out.

    I think i'll just set up my van right here *picks a nice open spot*

    i got satalite(sp) TV, don't ask how though.

    hey who is watching lifetime on my TV, no lifetime...thats just wrong

    hehehe

    hey their dropping the ball on giving us our teasers. That just won't do.

    i wonder what the Obi-Wan will have on it. and does anyone know about a Vader card in SR, i heard there was one but i could be wrong, i would think there would be one in the ANH expasion. oh well

    hey i got more pizza some DP(Dr. Pepper for Short) and i think i am going to play some Video games(brought my XBOX too) :D

    Well the new card is up...kind of a disappointment though. I mean really the only way this card could possibly be good is if it combos with some other new card. As it is it just plain stinks ESPECALLY for a rare.

    *joins line, waves at Kam*

    Hello everyone!

    Yoda4982, there is a Vader card that comes with the Vader Unleashed figure. I'm guessing it will be similar to one that will be in the ANH set...

    Here is the new card.

    I agree it is a bit of a disapointment. This and the last one were just "so so" cards. While not inherently lame or anything like that, they really did not reveal too much about the new set.

    This card is different than Aiwha rider because it is Character arena and has a "First Strike" level of speed built in. But you get to look at your opponents hand after the battle phase, which is after any major cards affecting the current battle have been played, and before they draw the next one. IMHO Aiwha is still better becasue it can be used "here and now" in game terms, meaning I can look at my oopnenets hand "now" and see what they are possibly going to build or play, and that is before they have a chance to target it.

    So unless there are some other cards that work with this in some way, I do not see how this is such a great card yet.

    OMG, thats considered a character, ok if i get that card anyone can have it. I have only two droids in my deck-R2, and 3PO

    man that card sucks. I am going to go blow things up right now, if you need me i'll be at my van playing Halo.

    The newest ability has been revealed. It is called "Intercept". A unit can take on an attack instead of the targeted unit. Like if LS attacks Wat Tambor, and you want to keep him in the arena so he can continue to make your opponent have 1 less build, a Vader with Intercept could take the attack on him instead of Wat.

    Now I like that; intercept sounds very promising... After the seeing the so-so cards, now I have a new hope for the, uh... A New Hope expansion. ;)

    Obi Wan Kenobi F is the latest card to be revealed at Rebelbasers! Simply Awesome card. So much Bang for the Buck! I hope this is a hint of the other "mains" cards we will see in the set. Vader is going make Anakin look like... well a snot-nosed brat (wait.... he is......) :)

    yep, just as i thought he is better than the young Obi-Wan, its great, intercept is really a nice technicque(sp) i wonder if Vader will have anything new on it.

    Hi guys, Funky Wampa here, formerly MJK_WotC reborn in civilian clothes. How's things goin' - looks like the keg's tapped, but I brought along a sixer of Henry's if anyone's got the thirst. Cool, I can talk about beer now. :)

    <hands out a few cold ones>

    So, I've been out of the SWTCG marketing spiel for a little while - have they released all the new mechanics yet? I see they're starting to give some peeks at cards - some of 'em aren't too shabby. I think I'll dust off the decks and start lookin' for a game pretty soon.

    Anyway, I better go see what the folks at 'Basers are doing - save my spot in line.

    Thanks!

    I really like the intercept mechanic, is this the last new mechanic we are going to see in ANH or do we get antoher one?

    Thanks for stopping by Funky_Wampa! Glad to have you here! We'll hold your place while you go to the Rebel Basers, no problem.

    To summarize, Chris has revealed two of the new mechanics. Accuracy and Intercept. We are all dying to hear about the last one, but it will be soon we hope. We have seen 4 cards. Obi Wan F, Red 2, Elite Stormtrooper Squad, and Imperial Sentry Droid. The pizza and subs are flowing, as well as the various liquid replenishments. We play Episode 1, 4, 5 and 6 back to back 24/7 on a large screen behind the SWTCG Tournament tents, and nobody is supposed to give the Ferrets anything with real or simulated alcohol in it for at least 30 days. :)
