Fantasy Flight Previews Tauntaun Riders For Star Wars: Legion

Sure, it's summer here in the US, but those south of the equator are right in the middle of winter. They've got their heavy coats on and dealing with the harsh conditions of cold, wind, and snow (or maybe not, but they are for the sake of this intro). In such conditions, I bet they wish they had a nice tauntaun to ride around on. But even if they don't actually exist, your little mans will be able to ride them into battle with the Tauntaun Riders set for Star Wars: Legion. We get a preview of them here. No word yet on how the figures smell.

Fantasy Flight Previews Sabine Wren For Star Wars: Legion

Boba Fett had some really cool armor. Most of us can agree with that.

Fantasy Flight Preview Imperial Death Troopers For Star Wars: Legion

One of the cool things about Prequel movies is that you can introduce a cool new concept, or unit, or character that's really cool... and then suddenly disappears forever from everything because they can't just go back and work them into the later movies that came out earlier... Such is the fate of the Imperial Death Troopers. But while we won't be seeing them show up in A New Hope anytime soon, you can have them on your Star Wars: Legion tabletops relatively soon.
