Hello everyone!

As you all know, Itai Rosenbaum does an amazing job by collecting all the new information about the Marvel Legendary games and centralizing them in the What We Know threads. Since he has not created such a topic for Big Trouble In Little China, I decided to step into his shoes just for this set.

I will constantly update this thread, as new information is released. I will ask you to refrain from discussions in this thread, in order to keep it clean for those interested solely in seeing what's in the box.

If you have some information to share, please provide the source. Unconfirmed information is also interesting to some people, but it does not constitute the subject of this thread.

Without further ado:

Miscellanea:
Release date: August 3 (GenCon 2016 release)
Designer: Rob Heinsoo
Recommended age: 14+
Legendary: Big Trouble in Little China (henceforth BTiLC) is based on the Legendary: Marvel system
Contains: 1 mat, 1 rulebook, 350 cards
MSRP: $49.99 - http://www.coolstuffinc.com/p/224520
Most probably, Lo Pan will be a mastermind.

What's different from Marvel Legendary:
Each player will begin with 6 Chang Sing Strategists (who provide Recruit points) and with 4 Chang Sing Warriors (who provide Attack).
Each player will also have 2 Mediocre Heroes. They give at least 1 recruit point and might get better or worse as the game progresses. There are 12 different Mediocre Heroes (among these are Jack Burton "Jerk", Wang Chi "Good guy", Gracie Law "Lawyer", Jack Burton "Reluctant Hero")
The city consist of the 5 spaces from Marvel Legendary, but the Streets and Rooftops together constitute "Chinatown" (Schemes, masterminds, heroes and villains make use of Chinatown) (http://upperdeckblog.com/2016/07/upper-deck-brings-big-troub...).
There are no affiliations.
Instead, hero cards refer to other hero cards (for instance, if you have one card of X you might get additional benefits by using hero Y's card).
Jack Burton and Wang Chi have three different types of commons. You don't play with all 3, but choose 2, depending on whether you'd want to go for certain interactions between heroes or prepare for a more randomized setup (thus, there are 19 cards per hero, not 14 as in Marvel Legendary) - http://robheinsoo.blogspot.ro/2016/07/hero-buddies-extra-her...
Instead of S.H.I.E.L.D. Officers, players will be able to recruit Uncle Chu cards - http://robheinsoo.blogspot.ro/2016/07/hero-buddies-extra-her...
There is unique artwork for each Scheme.
We see the first scheme that specifically requires 2 masterminds (Sorcerous Lo Pan and David Lo Pan)
Wounds have now an explicit cost of 0 (this was only mentioned by Devin Low in rules clarifications in Marvel). They can be healed if you do not attack/recruit anything that turn.

Heroes:
1, Gracie Law - http://robheinsoo.blogspot.ro/2016/07/nosy-lawyers-catacomb-..., http://robheinsoo.blogspot.ro/2016/07/green-eyed-brides-with...

The Monster Groups could be updated with Wing Kong Exchange and Warriors of Lo Pan -- I know they're mentioned with the Masterminds who lead them.

We don't know yet if they are Villain groups or Henchmen groups, that's why I'll wait for Rob's next preview to clear things up.
