Though we never got to see them in the movie, it’s cool imagining that Saw Gerrera has his own air force, and he’s painted them black and white. As for the TIE Reaper, it didn’t get as much attention compared to the Striker, but it still looks damn cool.

Saw’s expansion contains two ships, a modified X-Wing and U-Wing, with Saw and his freedom fighters being available as pilots (Saw is a U-Wing pilot). Of course, there are also upgrades provided, including 10 new ship cards and 15 new upgrade cards.

As for the TIE Reaper, it isn’t the fastest ship, but she has it where it counts—being a deadly offensive ship. The Reaper also comes with a jam ability that prevents other ships from using focus, target lock, or evade). It even comes with crew upgrades that could carry the Emperor or Deathtroopers to add extra stress to enemy ships.

The ships look cool, and I’d be happy to add them to my collection of ships. Then again, I can’t help but think that Saw’s rebels should be part of the Scum and Villainy faction instead of rebels. I mean, wasn’t he kicked out of that group?
