Never mind the Wag-sta, he is an ass, and he/we/they like it that way.

Every forum needs their grade A Ass-cot.

 

Yeah Whaggies.. I know...

"New" was probably a strong word. I've been around long enough to recognize regulars, and have more than one immediately negative answer to a thread I've started, specifically from wonderwaaaagh.

Luckily this game keeps me coming back.


As a couple of people have said, the problem isn't your post by itself so much as your post in the context of the other half-dozen posts asking the same question. (Obviously it would have been hard for you to know that.)

When you look at the game as a whole, there are a couple of ships that have appeared on art from the prior wave--but there are far more ships that were introduced without appearing, and also more that have appeared in art but (like the Yevetha D-type) at least haven't shown up yet. In technical terms, the hypothesis has really terrible predictive validity, and it's past time for it to be tossed out.

Peoples reaction to these is always funny.
If someone ( God help them ) ever makes a post about a third faction that helps out the Y-wing and advanced and that card has artwork with another ship on. I think the forum would explode. Welcome to the OP btw

No, I think it would only explode if it included a pirate Star Destroyer that carried squadrons of Y-Wings and TIE Advanced, and featured artwork from Star Trek.

Quick question about the outrider though:

I remember having a toy when i was a kid, and it was a small freighter type, only it tilted in the middle and formed a T shape. Was that the outrider? Or am I just completely mistaken? Looking over a lot of art for the outrider, I don't see any images of it tilted, or even see how it could be.

It definitely wasn't the Outrider. Not sure what it could have been--a Skipray? Not a freighter, but at least it has the variable-geometry aspect.

Ooh, or the YV-666, better known as the Hound's Tooth?

I think the next phase of ships could include some of the bounty hunter pilots and their ships. IG-88, Zuckuss, Dengar, et. al. There's a lot of room to add fighters and large ships from that group.

Actually, the toy they made for Outrider in the mid- or late-90s did exactly that. Probably just to make it stand out from the Falcon a little more.

EDIT: Found a link with some pictures. You have to scroll down to the bottom to see the rotating center part.

here we go. note the huge cannon that apears to be missing from FFG's model. or rather, how this model is very nearly an entirely different ship.

We're not going down this road again are we?

 

C'mon... this stuff is fun.

Don't be such a kill-joy. :P

 

I'm not being a kill joy. It's just been hashed over so many times. Why don't we start a new Star Destroyer thread. We haven't had one of those for a few weeks.  :D
