Hi all, Just made my core set purchase, it's not come yet but I've watched loads of videos of reviews, unboxing sessions and game sessions on You Tube / BoardgameGeek. One thing I here a lot of is the speculation that Capital starships are going to be too big for the game [agreed] and that once the main movie ships [Tie Bombers and B-wings Lambda class shuttle] have been done then who knows what will come next beside Episode 1-3 stuff.
Well, my theory is that the LucasFilm licience will encompass all of the material from the books, comics and video games. Generally Lucas retained all the rights to creative material created by other media sources.
take, for example, the Decipher Customisable Card Game: The had cards and images for loads of other starfighters which LucasFilm hold the rights to they include
Punishing One [Dengars Ship]
IG-2000 [IG-88's Ship]
Hounds Tooth [Bossk's Ship]
Mist Hunter [Zukuss's Ship]
Pulsar Skate [Terrik's ship]
and Prince Xizors ship too
Jabba's space yatch
Not sure if I got all the names correct there but you get the picture, there are probably many many more from the video games and books.
Presumably they'll also bring out expansions based on missions/scenarios and unique pilots.
They could make a flat board expansion thats a small space station with turret guns on
