About 5 minutes after you give up hope.

If you go to the Upcoming page, you'll see they're still in the development phase. So, I wouldn't get too impatient yet. We've all got a long wait ahead of us.

Save those Gencon bucks boys…


Wedge Antilles: The only character from the original series that appears in all three movies, has only one costume, and still manages to help destroy TWO Death Stars.

Odd most companies don't show product at events unless they are pretty much done.  This would be like WotC still working on cards a month before a sets release.  It may say development, but they are done with all the cards and what they do.  Because if they expect to be released in the Q3 or at Gencon…..all 4 of these have to already be getting pumped off a production line in China as I type.

And I'll save alot more getting them from Miniature Market than at Gencon lol.

When will they start shipping? 

When will they start filling the back orders they alread have? 

It seems they are really having supply problems. 

Seems like they should just move production back to the US so they can control it better. 

Sooner or later they will lose the momentum they have and people frustrated by not being able to get any product will go else where.

…Is that an X-Wing series quote or is my memory messing with me?

Yes, I believe Wedge says something along those lines in response to a mission briefing in one of the early X-wing novels. The usuage of the phrase in question is fairly common in business, so it didn't originate in the series, it was just borrowed and used there.

Upcoming page on FFG website now lists Wave 3 as as the printers, and Wave 2 as coming mid July, so….FWIW.


Be seeing you.

So if wave 3 is "at the printers" sounds like all the cards are done…..so yeah.

I saw the B-wings at the printer and the first thought I had was to jump up and cheer like the Rebel troopers did in the Empire Strikes Back when the first transport is away :D


Spectre Leader, standing by.

It's been two weeks since the last preview. The previews for the previous wave came fairly close together, so maybe they'll post a new preview soon. I'm very eager to learn any new information about the Wave 3 ships.
