There's no doubt that this card from the announcement is a Y-Wing only torp upgrade that adds a bomb upgrade icon. The only question is if it will be Scum only. (and what the cost will be but i guess free)

No doubt... because there are no bomb tokens shown like with IG-2000 expansion and FFG always provides tokens for everything to be used.

I don't think it's Scum only. The first line likely says "Y-Wing only."

What? Yes there are. What?

That's what I think too.

That would be a big plus for Y-wing in general.

Considering that there's two of those upgrades in the box and you only get one Scum Y-Wing, I would guess Y-Wing only as well

Scum: None yet

That's not really an indication becasue you get 2 Y-wing dials and 2 lots of generic cards too.

Hm. So we still don't have a reason to take a Y-wing without an Ion Cannon Turret. A basic Y-wing without a turret is overcosted by about 2 points, I was hoping for an Ion Cannon Upgrade slot that would have a negative cost and give a Bomb or Crew slot, so you could actually fly naked Y-wings competitively.

You'd have to have another Y-Wing to use the second dial, wouldn't you? So they're telling you that you can use a Y-Wing if you already own one =) If you bought a second Most Wanted box you'd have 4 bomb upgrade cards, 4 Y-Wing dials, but only 2 Y-Wings

Yeah but the actual model is the same as the rebel one just different paint. Same principle as the HWK and firespray, they are gibing you 2 scum y-wings in the box provided you have a rebel one.

None of the cards are spoiled yet so there could be a decent alternate turret in there.

I see what you're saying now. So there's still the possibility that the bomb upgrade could be Scum only. My bad

Wouldn't each Y-wing potentially need two of those "Bomb Refits" to coincide with the two Torp slots? I hope Most Wanted comes with 4, or even 3.

You don't need to strip your miniatures, painting over is fine. No, there should not be a fourth faction, three is the magic number for countering flavor lists and to break up faction distribution. Someone else has likely thought up and posted your amazing new build, so you don't need to stroke your ego when reposting it. The prequels sucked and so would a game based on it. YES, there should be a Custom Forum for terrain and repaints! Moving on...

What? Yes there are. What?

 

 

The Most Wanted Expansion pic doesn't have any bomb cards (including rule card), or tokens.  The IG-2000 has those things, so did every ship that was able to use bombs.

 

IF the Torp card gave a bomb slot, it would be the first time FFG gave an ability and didn't include the cards/tokens to use it in the specific expansion.  

 

I will say this is the first time an "swap slot" fixer card has been used for a token ability like bombs, rather then just generic upgrade cards.

Autoblaster Turret?

To both above: but what I really want is a competitively viable way to take Y-wings without any turret weapon at all, of any kind.

I am pretty sure that the slave 1 title gave torps but you didn't get any torps in the box
