The escape pod that crashed on Tatooine and altered the fate of the galaxy comes to Star Wars: Legion miniatures game. Escape pods are a standard feature of warships, but this particular pod carried precious cargo in the form of C-3PO and R2-D2. The battle cards in this Battlefield Expansion set outline two distinct play scenarios involving the recovery of the droids. In the first scenario, the escape pod crashes on Tatooine in the first round, and recovery of the droids becomes the primary objective of both armies. The second scenario is an extraction mission where the two droids have become lost in the planet's brutal landscape, and both armies are desperate to be the first to find them.
The centerpiece of this expansion is an unpainted, hard plastic escape pod miniature wedged into a sand dune base. Alongside the escape pod, the expansion includes finely detailed C-3PO and R2-D2 miniatures with six battle cards, four unit cards, and three command cards.
Star Wars Legion: Crashed Escape Pod will retail for $39.00.
