Decimator is $39.99, while YT-2400 is $29.99.  Any reason for this price difference?

Imperials have to pay tax on their ships. The rebels smuggle past customs!

Due to the major losses in the war, the Imperials are imposing much higher taxes in order to make up for them.

Join the Rebellion. Pay less taxes.

I think the real answer is "because the market will bear the price increase".

I preordered mine, did you?

Because X-Wing is pay-to-win, clearly.

I wonder if it's got a little to do with the GW model of prices based on in game cost, high points value means less sold so higher price.

Aye but people still buy max numbers of each for 100 points, which is about even for the small ships, besides they have a core price and they aren't going to make the headhunter cheaper becasue it's only 12 points.

 

I'm not sure 2 Decimator's will be doable, but certainly not 3, whereas you could take 3 YT-2400's in 100 points so lots of people will buy 3.

Let's not besmirch ffg by accusing them of gw pricing, bare in mind ffg does not manufacture themselves or own the licence and we don't know how that effects prices.

Selling cards that you need for tournament play in large ships that cost £25 basically for a card put them on par with GW, nothing wrong with that they are a company and they gotta make money!

Okay you don't need the card you want the card those are different things, sure they are a business and want to sell stuff but they are a long way from GW style price gouging.

 

When the starter costs £70 and you need to buy holocron rebel alliance for £30 before you even have a game then the GW comparison becomes valid.

 

If your not happy with the price you can wait till it comes down a little in price on third party sites much like the tantive has, if it's just a card you want ebays an option.

 

You'll struggle to find a bigger moaner when it comes to GW and their prices my rants can be found on warseer, and on these forums I've openly said individual ships are a bit pricey, but given you can buy every model twice for both factions and still pay less than a single starting army  for 40k it's quite reasonable.

 

GW would never release a game where you spend £40 and have a tournament legal force.

Not all all, contrast E-wing and Z-95. The Decimator costs more because the model's so big they had to enlarge the box to fit it in. No other reason.
