  1. Wait for it.... I have got to get me one of these!
  2. I've been using some of those sideloading deck boxes which have worked out great for me. They hold about 175 seleeved, and I throw some dividers in there to separate them by upgrade type.
  3. In one of my gaming groups, we actually play the Battle of Yavin scene on repeat throughout a session. Sounds pretty cool with the ham radio-esque chatter in the background, really adds to the experience!
  4. FWIW, I ordered only wave 3 stuff on July 21st with free shipping and just got my shipping notification at 11:30 AM today.
  5. why not just draw it on it?? You could probably use a chalk line and just wipe it clean when you're done.
  6. Also, we can finally shoot down an ABBA squad. Don't underestimate how fun that will be.
  7. Yeah, I don't know about laminating anything, not quite my style. As for the sleeves, if you mean the upgrade card size, the sleeves FFG makes for this size card are called "Mini European Board Game Sleeves" and has FFG product #FFS02. I also use the FFG movie poster sleeves for the pilot cards (SW for rebels, ESB for imps), no complaints there. They are a little pricey, though. Lastly, if someone was using tuck boxes they printed online, it's probably a good bet that the file they downloaded was posted on the X-Wing Miniatures Game page on BoardGameGeek, as seen here: http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/103885/star-wars-x-wing-miniatures-game Just scroll down to the 'Files' section and browse for a bit, there's probably some tuck box templates in there. Hope this helps.
  8. Honestly, just having C-3PO as a crew member should cause stress. He was as annoying as ****.
  9. All I've got is the B-Wing, and this is how it sizes up in inches, unmounted: 1 9/16" W 1 1/4" L 2 7/16 H Length accounts for the mounting peg in the back. Hope this helps.
  10. For most people, it's a good idea to start with one or two core sets and then maybe 1 of each expansion ship. This way, you get enough to try a little of everything and see what you'd like to get more of. But if you want to have it all... I've seen some people aim for 100 points worth of every ship's minimum cost, i.e. 8 TIE Fighters (12 pts. per Academy Pilot, 96 pts total) or 5 TIE Interceptors (18 pts per Alpha Squadron pilot, 90 pts total), and so on. This way, you'll never be short any particular ship for whatever 100 point squad you want to make. Of course, if you want to play with more than 100 point squads, the sky's the limit. Well, the sky and FFG's inability to keep up with production demand.
  11. No problem. I kinda doubt they'll carry them in store, but I'd love to see it. FYI, they're now listed as in stock online.
  12. I just saw on the GameStop website (yeah, that GameStop) they have TIE Interceptor and A-Wing expansions listed as preorders for a 7/24/13 ship date, retail price. They don't say how many they're getting, but they say they won't charge you until the order is shipped, so not much risk in preordering I guess. Seeing how wave 2 is pretty much gone everywhere else now, I thought this might be noteworthy.
