2 Pack similar to "Aces" or the Rebel Transport set, Titled: "Corellians"

 

X-Wing (Corran Horn's Green X-Wing)

 

Pulsar Skate

 

Corran Horn X-Wing Pilot Card

Mirax Terrik Pilot Card

Booster Terrik Pilot Card

Whistler Astromech

 

Generic Corsec X-Wing Pilot Card

Generic Rogue Squadron X-Wing Pilot Card

Generic Smuggler Pilot Card

 

 

How about a Nebulon B Escort Frigate with Both Imperial Pilots and Rebel Pilots so each side can use the ship.  This would make this more marketable especially since it would probably be more expensive than the Tantive IV.

 

I would like to continue seeing new ships, but also some more alternate paint fighters.  How cool would it be to have all 12 Rogue Squadron X-Wings?

 

Maybe a Stealth X-Wing!

 

Let me know what everyone is thinking

Fill out a mercs/bounty hunter force. Bring in Slave II, Bossk's ship, 4-lom's, Denghar's, etc... Pirates and others. Allow a third faction, perhaps one that combines the Firespray and the YT?

Mara Jade and Lando Calrissian flew yachts that were quite similar to each other. Would be fun to see that happen :)

With EU's reclassification as the altcanon Legends, I can't call Wave 5. Outrider I think's likely, and the Skipray Blastboast and TIE droid I can see FFG making, but that's not even a wave of ships. I genuinely don't know.

 

FFG will surprise us. I for one would never have predicted the TIE phantom.

I do kinda hope FFG produce a 'classics' set. Prequel film ships that are still functional etc. The time gap isn't that huge, there are real life fighters operating today who's designs are older than the republic/rebellion era gaps.

I'd love to see them do a Vulture Droid swarm. Or the ARC fighter.

Current Fleet

Republic - 2 X-Wings, 2 Y-Wings, 4 B-Wings, 3 A-Wings, 1 YT-1300

Imperial - 2 Tie Phantoms, 3 Tie Interceptors, 1 Tie Defender, 1 Lambda-Class Shuttle

I'm fine with prequel ships if they are not compatible with the current ships. So I don't have to buy them and I don't have to face a Naboo Starfighter in a tournament.

I'd even guess that Jade's Fire (Mara's ship) and Lady Luck (Lando's) could have different base stats or be used as titles.  When it comes to other pilots I'm thinking Lobot has probably flow LL a few times and then there are always some "pretty and/or important" people to serve as the generic model.

 

 

On the Imperial side I want to see the Skipray.  While FFG would probably shake things up I see it as being a LOT like the Firespray except it can have a turret primary weapon at 2 dice and may have some differing upgrades.  It could also include a "Heavy Ion Cannon" upgrade which is what its actual primary weapon system would be but in game it is better represented this way.

It would be nice to see the Nssis-class Chiss Clawcraft. It would make for a beautiful model.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a future line with ships from the upcoming Star Wars Rebels. It would be good for cross-marketing between properties. Plus the Ghost looks pretty neat.

•  Imperial Aces 2 (featuring TIE Advanced / TIE Bomber)

•  Rebel Aces 2 (featuring Stealth X-Wing / Y-Wing)

Stealth-X feels a little too forward in the timeline, honestly. A "Battle of Yavin" set with Advanced/Y-wing would be neat, though.

The YT-1930 is pretty nifty. And I know that V-wings saw Imperial use for some time into the New Order.

I see another Imperial Aces including the Defender - background wise all pilots had to be aces to get into the thing, in the Tie Fighter game you fight along-side Darth Vader on several missions, so a Vader pilot card for the T/D makes sense... perhaps a Title for it. Might make it pricey as can be... so might not be a popular choice but makes sense... or a Tie Fighter aces pack.

 

Perhaps an X-wing/Y-wing repaint Rebel aces with some nice titles or upgrade set (lots of un-love for Y-Wings, maybe a title or mod could make them popular again) 

 

If they do another set of Aces for each side I'd imagine a lot of stuff for balancing effectiveness of ships so we might see much more variety in tournaments.

 

Transports the size of the falcon that have appearances in games/films/etc seem a good bet, Outrider probably guaranteed. 

 

If they do Nebulon B frigates then maybe a Nebulon B for the rebels as the medical frigate and a Nebulon B 2 for the imperials so there's an option to have different models for both sides - but it's a big difference in size between a CR90 and a NebB (300m vs 150m... might be too big and expensive).

 

Imp Assault gunboat would be a logical choice (though maybe very close to a B-Wing statwise, which might make it less likely... FF seem to want fleets to be different between the two factions).

 

Rogue squadron X-wings would be really nice touch, but I wonder if there's a copyright issue... 

 

And if they did 12 alternate paint X-wings the Imperial player would be crying out for something similar - even if they had to make stuff up for it - Imperial navy was much grey'er but I'd imagine they could come up with something (Royal guard Tie Fight and Defender maybe? Or perhaps some variation based on new republic)

The Gunboat may be similar statwise, but that'd be it. The dial and actions would be very different.

Edited by Damoel, 06 June 2014 - 04:50 PM.

Fleet timez!

 

Anarchists: 3 A-Wing, 3 B-Wing, 2 Y-Wing, 6 X-Wing, 3 Z-95, 3 E-Wing, 2 HWK290, 2 YT-1300, 2 GR-75, 1 CR90

Good Guys: 6 TIE/LN, 1 TIE/AD, 3 TIE/D, 6 TIE/IN, 4 TIE/SA, 4 Phantom V38, 2 Lambda Shuttle, 2 Firespray-31

I think a Hapan Miy'til would be interesting (if not comparable to an A-wing) to offset the Clawcraft, or "Clutches" from I, Jedi
