I voted Rebels, but primarily because I'm already planning a whole series of SA realistic figures of the crew to make up for the terrible 5 poa figures on the shelves. That said, these are all great ideas and would be fun to tackle.

I went with vintage tributes because I have a feeling the next few years on these could be dominated by more "current" themes.

I went with Mercenaries/ Bounty Hunters because there is more fodder (in my opinion) available.

Khan Trill-Khan Trill was a freelance Bounty Hunter who took a job from Grand Moff Rilex Marshon. Marshon had put a bounty on Colonel Dru Brightstar and all other rebels in his sector. Khan tracked down Brightstar and apprehended him. When he went to collect the bounty, Marshon refused to pay and revoked Khan's IPKC (Imperial Peacekeeping Certificate) which allowed him to operate in that sector. When Khan complained, Marshon turned his troopers on him. Khan quickly dispatched the troopers, freed Brightstar and ended up joining the Rebel Alliance in the process.

This was my first character when I started playing the Star Wars RPG back in the day. The Bounty Hunter Template was based on Boba Fett and some other hunters. That is why your starting character started with a small arsenal including armor, a thermal detonator and a jet pack.

Rando Jaxin Rando Jaxin is an up and coming Bounty Hunter. Having limited funds, he purchased simple weaponry and a suit that offered little in the way of protection. His major purchase was his NeuroStar 3000 helmet. The helmet contained a full sensor suite including thermal imaging, HUD, and audio pick ups. It also contained a full communications array allowing him to transmit and receive on several frequencies. Rando hopes to earn enough to add to his equipment

Having been spurned by Count Dooku, and seen the Nightsisters fall on Dathomir, Asajj Ventress journeyed to Coruscant to become a bounty hunter. Her first quarry - Ahsoka Tano, on the run from the Jedi after having been charged with a crime she did not commit.
