The US release dates for the Star Wars: Legion Separatists and Republic Specialist Packs have been delayed until March.
In a tweet from last late yesterday, Atomic Mass Games confirmed that the Star Wars: Legion Separatists and Republic Specialist Packs were going to be delayed in the US due to an issue with the US Rail System. They are still coming out, just slightly later than expected. The rest of the world will still have their release date remain February 19th.
Unfortunately, due to delays within the US rail system, the Republic and Separatist Specialist Packs will now release in the USA in early March. The release date for the rest of the world will remain February 19th. We will update the date once we have additional information. pic.twitter.com/WbXIj6nQjX

The two new Specialist Packs in question are these:
“While Jedi Generals like Anakin Skywalker lead the Grand Army of the Republic into battle, clone troopers keep it running at peak efficiency. Some clones even combine the skill at arms and genetic template all clones share with further specialized training in areas like communications and engineering to support Republic operations on the ground.
This expansion puts four clone specialists at your command, giving you new ways to fill your units’ personnel slots. Additionally, the clone commander found in this expansion can lead an individual unit or your entire army and three new command cards that can be used by any Republic commander open up a host of new strategic options. “
“While the vast majority of the Separatist Alliance’s droid forces are programmed for battle, some specialize in things other than combat. Whether they gather valuable reconnaissance or repair their fellow droids, they serve a vital function in the war effort.
The four droids you find in this expansion expand the capabilities of your Separatist armies, allowing you to further customize units with the personnel slot. Additionally, a T-Series Tactical Droid can lead an individual unit or your whole army, providing even more versatility. These tactical droids are further bolstered by three command cards that give them–or any Separatist commander–access to devastating new strategies. ”
It is an unfortunate delay but at least Atomic Mass Games let folks know about it. The tweet did not specify what what the cause of the delay other than an issue with the US Rail System. Hopefully whatever the delay is gets sorted out and we’ll get these packs the first week of March.
You could say the Star Wars: Legion release got derailed for a bit.
