In Star Wars: Legion Jyn is the fourth commander and first commander not from the original trilogy and she brings a whole new set of tricks to the way the Rebels play.

FFG: Preview the Jyn Erso Commander Expansion

Forced to make her own way in the galaxy since her teens, Jyn Erso had little reason to trust anyone until being drawn into the Rebel Alliance by Cassian Andor and the rest of the Rogue One strike team.

Yavin Base: Jyn Erso Revealed, First Impressions

A pair of photos showing box art for a Jyn Erso commander expansion and a Rebel Pathfinders unit expansion was leaked about a week ago. The leaks were met with excitement, and with disbelief. Rogue One content this early in the game’s life cycle? Not possible, some thought. Those images? Easily re-created in Photoshop. Then someone found out that if you were to change a few numerals in a URL on the Fantasy Flight page, you could see the page names for Jyn, the Pathfinders, Orson Krennic and Death Troopers. Then, on Monday, FFG dropped an article previewing Jyn and Pathfinders, making it official.

So, Rogue One is coming to Star Wars: Legion! Amazing! And Jyn Erso, the first commander available from the gritty tale of how the Death Star plans were stolen, looks super exciting. From the wonderful sculpt, to new keywords, to weapon upgrade cards that flip and change modes, this expansion has a lot to offer.

FFG:Announcing Two Rebel Expansions for Star Wars Legion – Jyn Erso & the Pathfinders

After the Friday’s leak, it’s not surprising that come Monday we got an official announcement.

I don’t know about you, but I’m super excited about these releases. But regardless of how excited I am for these, I cannot wait for the official announcement of my long awaited Death Troopers.

I’d expect to see Krennic and the loooong awaited Death Troopers leaked/announced soon!
