 I would check out some of the links in this forum to the videos.  There is a good demo video and unboxing video from Gen Con.  There are also pictures of the next set.  FFG has preview articles that show the ships, but I agree that there is nothing to compare scale with.

Thanks,

Duncan

eyeballing it…  I'm guessing the Bases are 1.25" square +/- 0.25".  The fighters overlap the edges of the base a bit but seem to be no bigger than 1.5" +/- 0.25".

The "Medium" size ships on display appear to be on 2.5" +/- 0.5" bases (squares with twice the size of the fighter scale ships).  The Slave 1 is entirely contained by the envelope of the base with the falcon over lapping it by a bit.  The falcon could easily be 3" to 3.5" in length.

So that's my guesstimate.

If they are true to the announced scale of 1/270, an X-Wing should be 46mm (almost 2in) long, and the Falcon 100mm (4in) long.

My X-wing measured 45 mm exactly (nose to end of the engines).  The base measured 1 and 19/32nds long (just over 1.5 inches) and 1 and 9/16ths wide (again just over 1.5 inches).

I've got to imagine you were measuring the tops of the bases not the bottoms.  The sides of the bases are sloped downwards.  The bottoms of the bases are exactly 40mm square.

 

Here are some other measurements I made:

X-Wing, nose to engine: 45mm

TIE Fighter center of solar panels: 32mm

TIE Fighter bottom of solar panels: 22mm

Y-Wing laser tips to engine: 59mm

TIE Advanced center of solar panels: 33.5mm

TIE Advanced botom of solar panels: 25mm

X-Wing height : 18mm (0.8 in)
TIE Advanced height: 22mm (1 in)
Y-Wing height: 13mm (0.6 in)

Height measurements include the peg as they were concerning storage.

Comparison images:

Those are WotC SSB minis on the black bases.  Only a single altitude peg was used to bring heights closer.  Larger images are available if you remove the "_md" from the image url but I wanted them to fit on the forum page.

 A bit disappointed they didn't commit to a call sign on the X-Wing.  I would have liked it if they just left it blank and gave you a decal to apply yourself.  Or they could have did it like the Wizards one and made it Red 4 and you could add or remove as you like, but the way FFG did it you're going to have to repaint the whole call sign if you want it to look accurate.

Thanks for those pics!  They certainly look better than the WotC stuff.  Anyone compared them to the old MicroMachines?

Wow.  These are quite a bit bigger than I was expecting.  That makes that 3' x 3' play area seem all the more crowded.  And explains why all the speculation regarding what they mean by "Large surprises" couldn't reasonably include capital ships.  They would have to be huge.

 Man, I never fully realized just how sad the WotC TIEs looked until I saw that photo. Can't wait to get mine!

Sad is a very kind descriptor and the sample pictured is one of the better looking ones.  I foolishly tried the old hot water trick with them thinking I could straighten the panels out, sadly they curled even worse, to become full semi-circles.  Ah well, I sold them last year for five bucks a piece, so it worked out in the end.

 With those curled wings, you should have billed them as ultra-rare 'TIE Abominators' and sold 'em for $10 apiece! 

I have some as well, but with nothing better to compare them to, they always seemed 'okay' to me. That's over!

You're in Toronto, right? Maybe we should arrange a game!

 The real cool pieces in SSB was the larger ships anyhow.  I so wish that game had been better.  The fighters should have represented wings, similar to A&A War at Sea.  Also not keeping scale withing even classes of ships was a killer.  I still want a capital ship game where all the ships are to scale to each other.

 

Thanks,

Duncan

I have a ton of those. The comparison is striking. Time to sell those off.
