    Anyone else feeling stuck by this change?

    Descent 2nd Edition came out in 2012 and the conversion kit is still available on the FFG website. Granted, it's not a guarantee but the precedent is there for long term availability. Jim

    What is X wing 2.0 official release date

    September 13th is the official release date.
  3. This is wrong. They are not talking about Ventress in Solo. They are talking about Aurra Sing. Jim

    2e on the cheap

    I will not forget one glorious day when my Empire army grew by several units of halberdiers and knights. Was in Walmart and they had their Battlemasters on clearance for $4.99 each. I bought ten sets. Jim

    Solo: A Star Wars Story [SPOILER THREAD]

    Saw it last night. Loved it! Liked it more than Rogue One or TLJ. Maybe even more than Return of the Jedi. My daughter has wholeheartedly declared it her favorite Star Wars movie. She absolutely loved Qira. We'll be going at least 2 or 3 more times in the theater. Jim

    YT-2400 2.0 the new Jumpmaster?

    You keep assuming that the 2.0 YT-2400 is going to have a Gunner slot when that may not be the case at all. Jim

    When Will They Stop Selling 1.0 Ships?

    I'm sure they will want to sell off any remaining stock of 1.0. I doubt there will be a "hard date" to stop because it isn't like they are going to rip all those open and repackage models in 2.0 packaging. Will likely just be a matter of, when a store runs out they won't be able to order more of the 1.0 of whatever ship and it will be out of print until the 2.0 version is released. On the plus side, even new players will be able to get the older ships for awhile if they want to jump in hard with conversion kits. Jim

    Conversion Kit Unboxing on 5/18

    Yes. They have stated pretty clearly that the Quick Build cards will only feature upgrades from the expansion the ship comes in (and maybe the core set cards) so it makes complete sense that they won't be putting Quick Build cards into the conversion kits, because they don't have all the new cards that will come in the re-issue 2.0 packs done yet. It's disappointing, but it does make sense. I'm hoping that whatever they provide as an option for getting the cards in a wave without having to buy new models will also include the Quick Build cards.
  9. Tarkin in RotS wasn't CGI. It was actor Wayne Pygram. Just FYI. Jim

    FFG, please take your time testing 2.0

    You won't need the app to actually play. Just for squad building. Also, for truly casual, people can build squads using the Quick Build cards provided with each ship - just build to a specified threat level using the cards and you're good to go. Jim

    New v2 Article on Movement

    Y-Wing dial now has blue speed 1 banks. Otherwise it stayed the same.

    New Falcon from the Solo movie, where is it?

    I was hoping for an announcement for it also. I think that due to 2.0 it is delayed til Wave 2 for Christmas - my reasoning for that is so they didn't have to release another expansion with both 1.0 & 2.0 components.
  13. I definitely want Clone Wars factions to get the full range of ships. That said, I would love to get the N-1 for the Rebels faction just to get Leia as a pilot. Jim

    What 2.0 ship are you most excited about?

    All of them really, but super-excited for X and Y-Wings. I have loved both those ships since 1977 and am looking forward to playing them a lot more again.
  15. Make a nice framed display of the alt arts. Keep anything for Epic where I can get at it. Pack the rest of the cards and cardboard away in the attic. Most of the acrylic tokens look like can still be used, since they have a blank side if they need to be flipped. Jim
