I have already orderd mine but still trying to figure out what I want to field with it.  I dont know its point cost or how expensive its upgrades will be. All I know is that It will be my main ship I plan on fielding. 

 

 Anyone else pre-order yet?  What other ships are you planning on fielding with it?

 Pretty hard to answer for the reasons you stated. As a fan of the rebels I'm hoping that Han in the Falcon will be a nice tentpole for the rebel fleet. The only thing that terrifies me about him is Vader and cluster missiles with that horrific agility rating. Really interested to see how they do these big ships, hope they make them effective…considering right now quantity has been better than quality.

what would you like to field with the Falcon? i know everything would be nice but If I were to get the Falcon i'd like to field a couple of A-wings I have a feeling it might be all that can be put on a list for a 100pt game. Its not a good guess but it feels like a gut feeling. But I guess only time will tell

Pretty much impossible to speculate how to compile a list when I'd say we don't have 10% of the facts regarding any of these units' abilities.

I have pre-ordered two each of the big ships. And 4 each of the other expansions, never know when I might need them, hehe.

 I haven't preordered one, but as far as what to do with it? I'm goin' Sammy J. on some Rebels, that's what.

am guilty of doing this with TIE fighters. those things look so cute, reminds me of those pesky bats that swarm you in any typical RPG cave

Me for sure, at least once, right after I unbox:)

 

Again we know some stats from pics but that may change.  I think these may 50/50 useful, the rebs already have a hard time with less ships.  The last numbers I saw were the falcon would be close to 50pts… that means maybe ~2 supporting x-wings.  Who knows maybe a falcon/a-wing combo will be good???

 

As for imp, not sure the supporting ships would be good enough to support.  Maybe the interceptors will compliment the slave 1???

Will be interesting to see though.

Getting my preorder in next month when I have more cash.  I will probably only get the one since I intend to use it as Slave I in missions I create for my brother and his friends.  Although I hope they make a variant with different stats and colours to use as a Firespray.

The only thing that bothers me about the Falcon is the agility rating. Clearly, Han could push that thing to the limit and the Empire Strikes Back asteroid scene shows that the Falcon CLEARLY has the ability to outmaneuver TIEs when Han pilots.

I would assume the agility value doesn't just cover the ship's speed etc. but also its size which lets face it is an easy target for TIE fighters.  Also game balance has to give it some kind of minor disadvantage.  Maybe Han's pilot card will allow him to change blank results into evades to represent his skill, as mentioned earlier we know very little about this unit so until then…
