    Alphabet Squadron (new SW novel)

    Should be "Aurebesh" Squadron

    New SSD Photos & Info

    I'd guess it's at least 32 inches, based on the guy holding it (and it being wider than his shoulders, sticking out on both sides).

    New SSD Photos & Info

    Here's a side by side screen capture from Crabbok's recording of the In-Flight report. Personally, I'd say the ISD and VSD are effectively dwarfed by the SSD. Exciting!

    Y-wing 2.0

    The art is inconsistent, too. Horton Salm's card is clearly a Gray Squadron Y-wing flying inside Death Star II. No turret is shown for his poor gunner, Kin Kian to operate. Get it together, FFG.

    Y-wing 2.0

    Why did they print the specific name of the single seat variant on all cards? The BTL-A4 is a one-seater, notably flown by Dutch Vander and Gold Squadron. The BTL-S3 (like the Clones Wars era BTL-B before it) was a two seater, notably flown by Horton Salm and Gray Squadron. The best pilot/gunner pair might be Wes Jason and Hobbie Klivian. The S3 variant was Legends, of course, but now is Canon again, thanks to multiple recent Disney-era mentions: The Weapon of a Jedi Luke Skywalker book and the Poe Dameron comics (starting with issue 17). I assume in 2.0 you can have a gunner (or other crew member?) added to the "BTL-A4", which makes no sense. Seems like a typo-level error. Ideally we'd have two sets of Rebel Y-wing pilots cards: BTL-A4 for the Gold Squadron guys and BTL-S3 for the Gray Squadron guys. It seems like the second time FFG has screwed up with the Y-wing. On the plus side, the new model looks great!

    Is that a 2.0 Medium base?

    2.0 Base Tokens

    Oddities from Rebel Conversion Kit. Where's *Thane Kyrell (T-65), *Evaan Verlaine (Y-wing), and *Norra Wexley (Y-wing) in the official contents list? For the unique pilots of the ARC-170, Phantom I, Phantom II, Sabine's TIE: each pilot can only fly next to 2 of the 3 other pilots, using just the contents of just 1 kit. YT-2400 can fly with 2 generics; Falcon, Ghost, U-wing cannot.

    Thank you! Exactly what I needed!

    2.0 Base Tokens

    As I understand it, the Conversion kit contains all Wave 1 pilots and no Core 2.0 pilots. Except for T-65 and TIE/LN generics, where appropriate.

    2.0 Base Tokens

    I see that the "Quick Start" cards from Core 2.0 are showing *Luke & Red Squadron Vet and *Porkins & Blue Squadron Escort. Thus, the Core 2.0 should provide 4 pilot cards for T-65 along with 2 base tokens: *Luke Skywalker/Blue Squadron Escort *Jek Porkins/Red Squadron Veteran EDIT: To be fair, these might be swapped. The only way to get 2 X-wings from a Core 2.0 set is to have 2 Core 2.0 sets. Thus a double up of tokens (i.e. using unique Luke face-up and unique Luke face-down; i.e. Red Squadron Veteran; would work just fine.

    I don't know. I couldn't find base token details anywhere (except the T-65 unboxibg)

    Really? I could swear I saw it differently. Where are the people with the kits when we need tgem?

    2.0 Base Tokens

    When the Rebel Conversion kit says it can convert "2 existing X-wings", what does that mean for base tokens? Presumably it contains the stand-alone T-65 expansion fully, at least once. I further presume it does not include the Core game T-65 pilots. Maybe it just straight-up includes 2 x all cardboard (and cards, less unique duplicates) from a T-65 expansion pack. Probably the easiest for FFG. At that rate, the reported card numbers might not add up. For the T-65, you would get 2 dials, 6 base tokens, and 8 pilot cards (Wedge, Biggs, Garven, Thane, Blue Squadron Escort x2, Red Squadron Veteran x2). *Biggs/Blue Squadron Escort x 2 *Garven Dreis/*Thane Kyrell x 2 *Wedge Antilles/Red Squadron Veteran x 2

    2.0 Base Tokens

    Let's get a list of what really matters for conversion of your collection: the base tokens. {I am trying to keep this first post updated} The only one I've seen for sure is the T-65 X-wing expansion (from an unboxing video). Presumably this tells us what "1 X-wing" is defined as, in base tokens? It comes with 3 small ship base tokens, as follows: *Biggs/Blue Squadron Escort *Garven Dreis/*Thane Kyrell *Wedge Antilles/Red Squadron Veteran I see that the "Quick Start" cards from Core 2.0 are showing *Luke & Red Squadron Vet and *Porkins & Blue Squadron Escort. Thus, the Core 2.0 should provide 4 pilot cards for T-65 along with 2 small ship base tokens: *Luke Skywalker/(Red Squadron Veteran OR Blue Squadron Escort) *Jek Porkins/(Red Squadron Veteran OR Blue Squadron Escort) In the Y-wing we need at least: *"Dutch" Vander/ *Horton Salm/ Hopefully the backs of these can be such that Gold and Gray can be flown together (i.e. Gold Squadron generic on back of Horton, Gray Squadron generic on back of Vander).
