WOAH!

That for being the DCI Content Manager? Very cool stuff dude. Will keep it quiet though.

So....no change to how initiative works? I wonder why not? Interesting.

Obi-Wan is a freakin' beast, although you didn't list the point cost for either Obi-Wan or Dooku. Kind of disappointed that Dooku STILL does not have a CE, but his abilities are pretty cool. Just a different version of the LOTDS Tyranus. Funny enough though, this Dooku will own this Obi-Wan in a one-on-one duel.


Now....back to Obi-Wan....HOLY CRAP. Paired with Commander Gree, that's just freakin' insane. The Republic Commandos will certainly shoot back towards the top of the pile, with +13 attacks and 21 natural defenses, plus Stealth/Super Stealth and Shields 2. Wow. And Soresu + Mettle + MOTF 2??? Means you need to roll a 3 or better. Good luck EVER getting a crit to actually hit Obi-Wan, unless it's with Boba BH, lol.

Gotta say.....WOW. Can't wait to play with him. :D

MMM......yummy.

55 Points....same as CS Yoda, lol. That's an awesome cost for him. Granted, his CE isn't quite as powerful as GGDAC's though, now that I think about it. Still though, I was just realizing how much more brutal the JWMs will be under him. 23 natural defense! WOW.

So, does anyone else see the Republic as becoming one of the top tier factions again, or is it just me? Any squad running this piece that everyone will be able to acquire will be tough to hit or hide from. Awesome!

Quite a few of those are from older pieces, but it looks like they are giving some of them new Unleashed Power levels. Very cool! Any descriptions in there of what they do?

Sweet!

I'm really impressed with Obi, not so much with Dooku.. but Dooku is still decently strong for what he does.
Even though the Republic is getting more powerful with it's insane CEs... I can see Rebel and NR still going strong with the easy access to disruptive, that will nerf a lot of Rep or Sep builds.

OK, I'm seeing things in multiple places that make me think this wasn't kept as quiet as Dean requested of us, lol. Dean, have you been telling people outside of the Admin circle? I know I haven't told anyone. Well, even if the word has spread farther, it's good to see that nothing explicit has been posted yet.

I am SO excited about trying out this Obi-Wan. With the recent reveals this week, like Rex, there are all sorts of incredible squads to be built now. The fact that both Obi-Wan and Rex affect Followers in general is just insane, IMO. Flea's squad with Yobuck, Rex, and Jarael is proof of that. At 200 points add in General OWK....wow. Yobuck at +18 and 24 Defense, with a +22 during Galloping Attack. Jarael with a +14 and 23 defense with her Evade/Parry on top of that, and the possible 10 square move and still pull off Triple if Rex is around. Freakin' crazy.

Yeah, about the new Obi-Wan. It has come to our attention that Soresu is written wrong on Obi's card. Dean said he found where it is against Melee attacks only. Um, sounds like PARRY to me, but, anyway, that is what Dean said this past weekend.
