Almost no one knows what Jawas look like beneath their hooded brown robes—not even on Tatooine, where nearly everyone knows them by reputation. They are junk droid scavengers and merchants, and they traverse the desert planet in their massive, treaded sandcrawlers, hawking their wares to moisture farmers with few other options.
Not quite hostile, these Jawas aren’t truly friendly, either. Because their droids are often hastily refurbished, they push to strike their bargains quickly. Then they roll away in their sandcrawlers before the droids have a chance to malfunction.
It’s this combination of mystery, haggling, and droid-focused trickery that you’ll find brought to life by the figure, missions, and cards in the Jawa Scavenger Villain Pack for Imperial Assault.

In earlier previews of the C-ROC Cruiser Expansion Pack, FFG explored how the Scum faction goes Epic with its huge new ship and how the expansion adds new versatility to the faction’s M3-A “Scyk” Interceptors. However, if there’s any one part of the expansion that’s most likely to impact both Epic and Standard X-Wing™ play, it’s the new crew upgrade— Jabba the Hutt .
Today, we take a closer look at what Jabba brings to X-Wing.
n X-Wing, Jabba the Hutt is a double-slotted crew upgrade that ensures Scum players a chance to enjoy the bounties of his vast criminal network.
But first you have to get him aboard a ship—which, by the way, is no easy task. Currently, only two Scum ships feature two crew slots—the huge-base C-ROC Cruiser and the large-base YV-666 . And only the YV-666 is legal for Standard Play.
Once you get Jabba on board one of your ships, however, he adds immediate value, placing one illicit token to each of your illicit ( ) upgrades. These tokens then give you more uses of the illicit upgrades they modify; whenever you are instructed to discard an illicit upgrade, you can instead discard its illicit token, if it has one.
In short, Jabba the Hutt is Extra Munitions for every illicit upgrade in your squad.
This means Jabba—like Extra Munitions—serves largely to boost the economic value of your upgrades. But it’s important to note that his influence goes a step or two further.

From the Core Worlds to Kashyyyk and beyond, the Force connects all living things and binds them together. Pirates, Imperial cadets, and Wookiees. No matter who they are or where they go, they’re all connected by the Force. They’re all drawn together by the eternal struggles between the dark side and the light…
Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of three new X-Wing™ starship expansions!
- Auzituck Gunship Expansion Pack
- Scurrg H-6 Bomber Expansion Pack
- TIE Aggressor Expansion Pack
In the Star Wars galaxy, seemingly minor events can alter the fates of countless worlds. A Tatooine moisture farmer purchases a pair of droids. A freighter pilot learns that his YT-1300’s negative power coupling needs to be replaced. A hungry Wookiee reaches for a dead animal skewered on a wooden stake…
Who would have expected the moisture farmer’s nephew would become a powerful Jedi? Or that the repairs to Han Solo’s Millennium Falcon would draw the attentions of an infamous bounty hunter, a crime lord, and even the Dark Lord of the Sith? What would have happened to the Rebellion if Chewie and his Rebel allies hadn’t befriended the Ewoks on Endor?
The Star Wars galaxy is full of these little twists of fate. The Galactic Civil War was shaped by them. And you’ll soon have your chance to pursue more of these twists in your games of X-Wing.
With its trio of ships, Wave XI follows these twists toward a host of explosive new possibilities—all nestled comfortably within the game’s existing mechanics. High-tech bombers. Fighters capable of filling highly specialized roles. Double-slotted upgrades. Unlimited ordnance. And a wealth of abilities that encourage dynamic and interactive new ways to fly!

When the battles of Star Wars™: Armada start getting heated, shields begin to fail, and hulls creak and groan under the strain of repeated battering. It’s at times like these that a fleet admiral’s cunning may prove the difference between victory and a resounding defeat…
Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the sixth wave of Armada expansions!
Light on ships, but heavy on new ideas, Armada Wave VI features two expansions—the Imperial Light Carrier Expansion Pack and the Hammerhead Corvettes Expansion Pack. Inspired by Star Wars Rebels and Rogue One, the expansions give us three new ships—one Quasar Fire-class cruiser-carrier and two Hammerhead corvettes. While these are solid ships, they are by no means the biggest and baddest battleships you’ll find in the Star Wars galaxy, but if you overlook the threats they pose? You do so at your peril.
