Well, they will probably ship 4, maybe 6 per box.  And at $90 retail, that's $540.  But figure if MM can sell it at $60, then they're probably paying <45 for it, making their (and FLGS) cost per box at $270, assuming it's 6 per box.

I'm looking at using the minis for RPG purposes.
Remember that Z-95s are used as planetary defense forces.. so therefore this is how it looks for me:

6 Z-95

3 E-Wing

4 Tie Defender

2-3 Tie Phantom

I have only been in the game for a few months, so my Fleet is still expanding with what is out now. By the time Wave 4 comes out I should have what I need that is already out (plus one of each big ship and the Aces), so I am already planning.....

 

E-Wing  x4

Z-95      x5 (maybe 6?)

Tie-D    x3 (most likely 4)

Tie-Ph  x4

 

I will start out getting 2 of each, then build from there as my wallet allows.


Rebels: YT-1300; HWK-290 (2); A-Wing (2); B-Wing (2); E-Wing (2); X-Wing (3); Y-Wing (2); Z-95 (3)

Empire: Firespray (2); Lambda Class Shuttle; Tie-A; Tie (5); Tie-I (2); Tie-B (2); Tie-Def.; Tie Phtm (2)

Since these ships are high point costs and I Don't like running 2 or 3 small ship builds.
1 defender, 1 Ewing these ships are elite ships w loads of options. 1 each Unless the defender has an amazing new movement.
1 phantom, I may purchase 1 more because 4 base atk is really good for 25 points.
2 z95. I doubt I'll use an alpha strike missle platform as a pure swarm list. The base xwing is still a better ship for the points compared to a z95 w a missle.

And of course I reserve judgement to purchase more based on any new cards we haven't seen.

Probably just one TIE Defender and Phantom to start. The Rebel ships don't interest me much, yet.

Just thought this would be a good thread to see what people say.

 

My plan right now is

 

2x E-wing

2x Z-95 (this could easily bump to 4 if the ship performs well)

2x TIE Defender

2x TIE Phantom

 

For an idea of where I'm coming from my collection is:

 

1xCore

 

3x X-wing Expansion

2x Y-wing Expansion

2x A-wing Expansion

3x B-wing Expansion

1 Falcon

1 HWK

 

3x TIE Expansion

3x TIE Int

1x Aces

2x TIE Advanced

3x TIE Bomber

2x Firespray

1x Shuttle

 

I also plan to get one of each huge ships.

 

How about everyone else?

 

 

Wow, your collection totals almost perfectly match mine, with the exception of the firespray, of which I have one and the B-wing (just 2).

 

I also plan to start with 2 of each expansion.

Funny.  I just recently in last 2 weeks got the extra Firespray, B-wing, and TIE Bomber.  I was totally under the impression there wouldn't be anything new any time soon and wanted to fill out my fleet a bit.  I also picked up a solo X-wing siting there all by itself at Barnes and Noble looking lonely surrounded by A-wings, TIE Advanced, and other useless ships (just joking, it didn't look lonely).  So that number should be 4x X-wing.

 

I know Aces will be here soon, but was kind of let down that the transport hadn't been updated.  Had no clue that Wave 4 would be announced.

 

VERY EXCITED for this next wave.  Hope they have the timeline right.  It would be a big let down if it gets delayed.  But I'm really impressed with FFG.  They seem to have their ****   together.  Like someone said in another thread "A company of gamers for gamers".

I will probably purchase the following:

 

1x Defender- with the Shapeways one I already have, that will give me 2 and I don't see a need for more.

 

1x Phantom- a pretty specialized ship, again, I do not think I will need more than one... we'll just have to wait and see.

 

1x Z-95- with the three (better looking ones) I have from Shapeways, that will give me four and I think that is plenty.

 

0-2x E-wing- not really a big fan of the design but I might have to buy at least one for completions sake.

I have a good feeling that Wave 4 may drop at Gen Con this year.  That's why initially I'm looking to get 2 of everything in Wave 4 (Last year, FFG has a limit for purchase of 2 units through use of a "ticket system").  Once Wave 4 hits retail, that will change when more is known about Wave 4 as a whole.  With the news of Wave 4, I cannot wait for Gen Con. :)
That said, I'm very excited about the Headhunters and Phantoms, so I might bump those up to, at minimum, 4 - 5, and 3 - 4 TIE Defenders and E-wings.

Probably just pick up a couple e-wings, and a couple headhunters. If there is a viable imperial aces build featuring defenders/phantoms maybe get those. But I have been telling myself ill pick up an imperial ace build for almost a year and it has yet to happen.

 

The ewing looks pretty sick, so I need to get those. And since we have been escalating points lately, a pair of cheap missile boats might be a good option too.

Well, the TIE Defender just became my default X-Wing purchase if I don't know what else to get. So however many that means. Probably 1 Z-95 (not really a Rebel Swarm fan myself), but more if one of the pilots turns out to be Mara Jade. No real interest in the E-WIng (no offense, just not my kind of fighter), and a few TIE Defenders. Time to make Onyx Squadron from the CCG!

I'm planning to get:

6x E-Wings
8-10x Z-95s
6x TIE Defenders
6x TIE Phantoms

I didn't think I'd be interested in ships that weren't from the OT, but I blew that when I bought 4 HWK-290s. Plus having multiple upgrade cards could be useful. I am the only one I know of in my aera that has X-Wing, so I try to make sure I have enough to share, also future proofing for when my son becomes old enough to play, I can gift half my ships to him.

Maybe one of each. Possibly two z95s. I find that I auto limit my collections a bit.

Was talking to my local importer mate yesterday to make sure my order got in for the 1st stock wave. I'm going for 6 Z-95s, and 3 of each for the rest. Although 8 is possible in a Headhunter swarm I think it's overkill, chances are 5 is probably enough but I also like the look of the ship. I used to get 2 of each and 1 of the large but since I cracked and started doing repaints I kinda want more of each for customs, up to 5 X-wings already. Painted up 3 blue squadron B-wings on the weekend.

Being all straight fighters, there's a lot of purchase potential. Bombers, missile-boats, two is fine; but Hot Machines? Who knows!

My initial notion is six Z-95s and two each of the rest. 

That could eventually ramp up to as many as eight plus fours, but I'll have to see how I like 'em.
