Has there been any mention or rumors on the theme for the next set of Force Packs?

 

Endor? Tatooine? Dagobah? Cloud City? Death Star? Dare I ask...Naboo?

 

I can sort of see them doing maybe a "Rise of the Empire", "Fall of the Republic", or "The Jedi Purge" themed set next...

 

Or maybe "The Kessel Run" themed set? Would like to see me some Maw Installation stuff :)

Not yet. Announcement is expected this month if it is to start in November after Balance of the Force drops in October.

Mmm..

 

So FP5 August. FP6 September. Balance in Oct. I can't remember if FFG normally takes a month break between cycles?

This kind of delay has happened before in Game of Thrones. IDEALLY and NORMALLY, FFG tries to have cycles run back to back, such that 1 ends and then next month a new one begins. But a year and half ago, there was a 4-month delay between cycles, with very little support FFG over that time frame. It was a sad, lonely set of months...

They are probably prepping for gencon/worlds, I don't think we will see anything from Endor, it would be weird to go from 1 battle to the next I hope we see more a open ended cycle.  I want Black Sun, i want Lukes time in his Dojo on Tatooine making his 2nd lightsaber, I want Biggs, Porkins,


+++ Engagement: Resolve Strikes +++

magni strikes with greedo for 2 unit damage to Han Solo and 1 Blast Damage.

What delay ? August just started. We have product announced all the way to October. November is 3 months from August so if the next cycle is to start right after Balance of the Force it will be announced this month. There is no delay at this time. We have two more force packs then Balance of the Force. So the next 3 months are already mapped out.

It'd be better if they just made one pack based on one event or location. Endor pack, Black Sun, Coruscant Senate, etc. Make them slightly bigger. 60 cards a pack once every two months.

They already do 60 cards per pack...

October is a guess only for Balance of the Force, and we have product for September only because the July Force pack missed its intended shelf date.  The force pack well was originally intended to dry up in August.   They could possibly have delayed the release intentionally to ensure there's no month without a release, but it's definitely been a little wonky.

They delayed the release as soon as they noticed two things in one month. Most of us saw that coming a mile away.

 

October is 3 months from July. To keep things flowing we see balance then. It is possible given previous history they take a break after a deluxe expansion. If we see no announcement this month then we know next cycle will start in December after a 1 month break.

 

After collecting 5 LCGs since 2009 I pretty much have FFG figured out.

FFG confirmed Multiplayer for Worlds - Balance of the Force has to be October.

How about a theme based around Jedi and then Sith?

My money is on Endor cycle.

I too believe that endor is next up.

 

my thinking is somewhere on the lines of what we got in the core set.   they gave us boba fett, han solo which both factions were expanded on, and then we have 1 set of ewoks which i think is where they will go next.  lots of good stuff for both sides with endor.
