    Easy.
    When your opponent is considering his placement of obstacles, point violently, yell "OMG, what the **** is happening there", and when they turn to look, grab his Luke, rip it up, throw it on the ground, and begin whistling. 
    "Luke?  What Luke?" 😱
    <And in case anyone thinks I am serious, please don't mistreat cards, even those as obnoxious as Luke>

    Maybe the designers were going more for theme. The gunner Luke was kind of obnoxious in the movie as well.

    Exactly. It's not the card's fault.

    This is very much a chicken/egg and/or horse/cart catch-22 situation.
    The Vault isn't getting much use because it has significant bugs, is missing significant content, receives no responses for support from FFG, etc. What user in their right mind wants to invest a lot of time working with the Vault given what I just stated?

    In a perfect world, there would be a balanced distribution and supply/demand for assets available within the conversion kits. In that world, everyone searching for items, say on eBay, would be met with equal sellers/traders. It is my humble opinion that this "world" is pure fantasy.
    First, I don't think that there is going to be sufficient conversion kits produced (at least initially) to meet the demand that will exist.  This in turn is going to make it more unlikely that you are going to be able to find someone that will match up with your needs; in other words, trying to find someone that wants to sell/trade precisely what you are looking for ...
    Second, many of the posters on this site are already unhappy with the make up of each of these kits ... many for the exact same reasons. Therefore, I would predict that demand for certain items is going to far out weigh supply ... This will most assuredly result in seeing extreme demands for certain items ... those demands being either very high prices, or requests in trade that are anything but balanced. I also expect that the initial limited supply of conversion kits is going to result in the same kind of demands, especially from those that will do their best to buy many conversion kits, just to sell them, either as an entire kit, or to piece them out, most likely hoping to get greater return individually, then they would by re-selling the kit in its entirety.
    Third, I predict given the above, and the response that has already occurred by the unveiling of what is in the conversion kits, there are going to be many, many threads posted after September complaining of same.  It would not shock me if re-stock availability of conversion kits goes unfulfilled for at least 6+ months ... leading to even more unhappiness.
    I have given much thought to this, and actually have another 1/2 dozen points or so, but you get the idea ...
    I truly believe that those who have an average to above average collection of X-Wing 1st Edition (spanning all factions), and are hoping to say purchase only 1 conversion kit initially, for the faction they play most (reducing the initial cost), are going to be some of the most unhappy people in the long run.  I think that once they decide they really want conversion kits for the other factions, they won't be readily available. This in turn is going to make it even harder to try and take the path of buy/sell/barter pieces, and the pieces need for this approach won't be available.
    As a disclaimer, I am not moving on to second edition.  I have an enormous 1st edition collection, mostly because I love the miniatures. I have never actually played the game.  But even if I did, I would be reluctant to move on for various reasons that aren't worth discussing at this time.
    Quite frankly, I hope my thoughts on this, in time, are proven wrong.  I hope that all of you that wish to move on to second edition can do so both economically, and on the time schedule you desire.  I wish you all the best !
    I just don't think it is going to work the way many people believe ...

    So, this seems to be one of the few threats not yet infected by X-wing Second Edition... Well, not anymore. Thanks to Any2Cards I was able to keep check of my collection and accompanying inventory of X-wing, for which I am very, very grateful. Therefore, I started a version for the Second Edition of X-wing. It is up-to-date with most of the known information, and I will keep updating it as time goes by. You will find a lot of "old" information which I will keep in until I know it is not in the new version. Therefore, the tabs are correct up until the Upgrade Cards, the ones after still have a lot of old data. I hope to finish a first definitive version soon!
