It was a busy weekend full of streaming, and at the end of it all we have lots of updates for all of our favorite games!
Star Wars Legion easily had the biggest showing – with lots of details on the new A-A5 Speeder Truck and the LAAT/le heavy vehicles getting ready to come out soon. But in addition to those reveal we also got tons of info on an entire new Kashyyk wave, including Grandmaster Yoda himself! Wookiees were confirmed to be dual faction, which not only bring the classic wookiee design that the rebels have seen, but also introduce a new ranged configuration to run wookiees! Lots of art was spoiled for almost everything in this new wave!
X-Wing was also not without surprises! In addition to spoiling the rest of the pilots from the upcoming squadron packs, we got a preview for a new Huge ship! The Trident Class Assault Ship, otherwise known as the Mechanical Squid of Doom, is coming as a dual faction huge ship for both the separatists and scum! It was also teased that the Razor Crest, from The Mandalorian, will eventually be making it’s way to X-Wing with a new piece of teaser art! It was also mentioned that the Razor Crest is pretty far out in terms of release date, so don’t hold your breath!
Unfortunately, Armada didn’t get any hints of future content past the Wave 10, it’s next big release slated for an April release. We did however, get some additional previews of 3 cards for each expansions pack. This will at least give the Armada community something to talk about in the mean time – but the lack of a dedicated Armada developer felt like a gaping hole in this entire weekend for me, as Armada is by far my favorite game and now it feels like it’s in a troublesome spot for new content.
Marvel Crisis Protocol
MCP got a nice slice of news, with a new Spider-Man focused wave coming soon, featuring classic villains like Kraven the Hunter and Mysterio, and an all new Amazing Spider-Man! Plus some teases for future X-Men releases in the way of Omega Red!
It was a weekend filled with lots of painting and hobby streams, and also a handful of spoilers – all in all pretty exciting! Let’s see what happens in September during Gen Con, when they are gonna try and do this again for MiniStravaganza 2!
