Just curious as to why Rebels are getting support for these "Spec Force" guys with the new Madine. Isn't "Spec Force" essentially the same thing as "Commando"? Why start a new theme when one that is nearly the same thing already exists and could use support?

Because it isn't essentially the same thing as Commando. All the Commandos from the Battle of Endor were members of SpecForce, but certainly not all people in SpecForce are Commandos. All the white-uniformed soldiers at the Battle of Hoth were also members of SpecForce (the Wilderness Fighters), but by no means are they Commandos, certainly not the way "Commando" has been indicated in this game (essentially one of the guys at the Battle of Endor). SpecForce branches much, much further than the Commandos.

Sounds like everybody gets to be "Special Forces" except those poor suckers who got mowed down on the Tantive IV or would marines count as SpecForce too?

Anyways, from a technical standpoint you're right. Mechanically though I suppose I feel that adding a "SpecForce" mechanic seems a bit superfluous. In Starwars minis generally military units would seem to fall under two categories; Troopers and Commandos. Troopers being larger infantry units like Clone Troopers or Hoth Troopers and commandos being more exclusive or elite military units. Both Rebel Troopers and Rebel Commando themes aren't really playable at the moment with the exception of the Elite Rebel Commandos and could use some help I think. Why not strengthen those themes rather than making an entirely new theme that's basically the exact same thing?
