I would really like to see more pieces with Synergy and Rapport. Obviously, WotC isn't going to go back and add it to the characters already made, but I think they should be more common abilities. The only characters with Synergy that I know of are Barriss Offee and the Solo twins (and any Republic Anakin with Obi Wan, JMs CE.) Rapport is a little more abundant, but still lacking. Dr. Evazan and Ponda Boba, Barriss Offee, Clone Troopers and Wookiees with Cody and Gree, the Coruscant Guard with Vader, Mercenaries with Nym, the Queen's non-uniques, and of course Jabba's hired guns.

But anyway, there are so many other miniatures that could (and should) have some kind of 'link' with each other. Obviously, the Synergy ability is kind of strong so it should be limited, but not as much as it is now. However, Rapport is nowhere close to 'game-breaking'. Lowering the cost of a miniature by a point may allow for an extra character to come in or provide an upgrade for one that's currently in the squad, but I think that it is a sacrifice that could be made to encourage 'theme' squads. I think that it would provide an intriguing twist to squad building...Do you go with the discounted piece or the higher priced one that may be a little better?

Am I the only one that thinks this would be a nice upgrade to the game or am I just one of many? Sound off and let me know what you think...

I think the new vader in force unleashed and his apprentice should have the synergy ability(maybe even rapport).

I think we should see more Rapport. As for Synergy...meh, but It'd be nice to see Grievous, JH get a boost in attack...

Synergy would be a nice boost to underused figs, but it is hard to fit in correctly most of the time.

As for rapport, i love it, but only Queen Amidala makes any real use of it. One point here or there rarely makes it worth anything. Either it needs to be more general like Amidala's or more than a single point unless it makes something possible for reinforcements (ie-4-LOM/Zuckuss).

Yea, I agree because it shouldn't be something that can be nerfed by Disruptive.

There are still some good combos that need Synergy and Rapport. (Chewie and Han, perhaps)

Yeah, they should definitely have Synergy and Rapport.

I also think they should remake Obi Wan, JM(and perhaps rename the fig) and take away his ce and give him Synergy with Anakin and perhaps give him a few more force powers to make him more unique to Obi Wan JM, but a remake of Obi Wan JM with some modifications probably wouldn't happen though.

yes if they made a Mara Jade Skywalker with super rapport with Luke JM would be awesome cause then he might get played once in a while.... and yes I totally agree that han and Chewie should have it as it seems right now that I hardly see Chewie get any play


I use Chewie a lot.

If we ever get a padawan Obi, it would be kool if he had these with Jinn. That could make a really nice combo with the Jinns we have.

I would sooner see more Affinity then Synergy/Rapport.

Synergy is more important then Rapport. Rapport is quite a pathetic ability when it is teamed with 1) Mid/High cost pieces and 2) Substandard pieces.

They need to be so careful with Rapport as well, make sure that they don't make a mistake somewhere. You can already have Wookie Freedom Fighters in Imperial squads, if they keep making more Rapports available how long before the faction rules are a mere inconvenience?

Synergy though I am all for

In 500point games I could see this as seriously broken. Time to make a shoebox squad :)

Rapport doesn't have anything to do with faction jumping though. Gree's CE is what lets any Wookiee be in a squad with him. The Rapport SA just makes them cost 1 less.

My bad, I reviewed the cards and you are correct. I guess I dont have any worries over Rapport, just so long as there isn't too many similar rapport making figures "too cheap"

Rapport is useful, but not that game-breaking. It's a neat trick with lobot and zuckuss, and you can bring in the RS 4-lom. And queen amidala along with her CE makes various followers better. But, beyond that, it's not really noticible. So more of it? I suppose, but give it to some factions that need it, such as the sith and the new republic. ( rapport for troopers would be a welcome change. )

I would like to see a lot more synergy in the next few sets.
