Uh... R-41/T-Wing for the Rebels, Assault Gunboat and I dunno... the TIE Vanguard for the Empire?

 

I hope we don't see the YT-2400 anytime soon. I still want more diversity for Rebel craft from another Rebel flying pancake saucer ship. Yeah I know if they do it it'll be different but c'mon, the Baudo? K-Wings?

I'll be extremely disappointed if they don't do at least ONE prequel ship in the next wave.  They already have 2 ships now from the prequel era in the firespray and z-95, three if you count the y-wing sort of.  Plus they can't use the argument of ships around during the OT either as the E-Wings are a post ROTJ creation.  The EU ships this wave are all pretty well known for the most part, but another wave of EU ships would be starting to get more obscure even for casual fans.

I hate that you did this.  HATE...ya, ya, ya... path to the dark side and all that...

 

But I would bet on Yt-2400 since we didn't get another big this time.  I hope we get to see any 2 of these: Tie Droid, Predator, and clawcraft/hunter, starviper, I-7 howlrunner. 

 

Other option is an all prequel wave.  I would then expect vwing and Arc180 or a jedi starfighter(ETA-2) and good lord who knows for the "empire" at that point... fanblade fighters? Belbullab-22? third faction?  Droid starfighters... yep.

All the -Wings come in pairs, and they've announced the E-, so I'd bet the K-Wing.  There's lots of possibilities though:

 

Rebel/New Republic:

Sorosuub Yacht (either the Lady Luck or Jade Shadow).

 

Imperial:

Chiss Clawcraft (in my dreams!)

TIE Vanguard

 

Pirate faction/prequel wave/covert ops ships (Chewbacca Lambda, CorSec X-Wing, etc.)

So you want the Weiner Dog of Space ships (the Lady Luck)... and the K wing.. which is one of the sillier EU designs... OK.....

 

Give me a YT-2400 any day...

I don't believe we'll see a TIE Avenger in any future wave. Unless I've got it all wrong the TIE Avenger is another name for the TIE Advanced and we already have that. Vader flies the TIE Advanced x1 but the other pilots are listed as TIE Advanced on the cards. It is unfortunate that the model is wrong for the TIE Avenger/Advanced.

Sort of? It has been referred to as a TIE Advanced, but several other prototypes were as well. However not only is the model for a TIE Avenger wrong, but so is the dial as the Avenger was also the successful attempt to make a fighter with TIE Fighter maneuverability and a hyperdrive. Plus it also had twice as many laser cannons as the X1 so it would at least have 3 attack dice, not the 2 everything in the pack has.

 

So as unfortunate as it may be, I still don't think any of the ships in there are Avengers. I do really want me an Avenger though. Never a big fan of the X1's.

Actually, they're Yevethan D-Type Trifoil Fighters, from the Black Fleet Crisis (where General A'baht most famously served).  Preybirds have no fins, and have relatively square wings.

They're from a bit in the future of the fight, too, from about ABY 16-20 or so (or that's when they were made famous, at least).
