    Not sure we needed another Rey and Kylo, but Ewoks are a welcome addition. Hopefully we'll see more of them soon with red, blue and other yellow options.
    Temporary Truce is a cool mechanic I'd love to see on Asajj-Obi-Wan if the points would work.
    Given the possessed downgrade, I wonder if we'll see Old Daca. I am still hopeful for Pong Krell as a blue villain with the option for two double-bladed lightsabers like Rex's Pistols and Palpatine's Sabers.
    Finally, it's nice to see a good Trawn, though I expect he'll be as annoying as current Jyn.

    Umm, long story short, it's a miniatures game--which come unpainted. If they were pre-painted, one could not paint them in the personal manner as one would wish. If you don't paint, then commission a painter.

    Hey y'all,
    Now that we have a reasonable idea of the core forces etc. I would like to further discuss the potential in future expansions. While individual releases are great to flesh out an existing core force, I would like to offer some complementary ideas.
    One interesting possibility would be a box of figures comprising Twilight Company from the first (new) battlefront book. This would be awesome and the sculpts/ alien potential is really strong (I want a Besalisk figure). This could easily fill-out a specialist group, and offer a new leader.
    Additionally, the crew of Rogue One could be done in this way, with both Cassian and Jyn being able to double dip as leaders, and/ or an expensive specialist unit.
    Other complementary forces could be, Sullustan Rebels, Jedha Partisans (awesome alien possibilities) with Saw as a leader, the Ghost Crew (reluctantly), Ewok reinforcements, Death Troopers with Krennic, hired mercenaries, Inferno Squad with Iden etc.
    Alternatively, they could go the big box route (like in IA) and do a Jedha expansion (with tank, Partisans etc.), a Scarif expansion, Endor, Hoth, Sullust, etc.
    Which of the two (or a combination of both) would you prefer/ like? And what other ides do you have?

    I love the PT! I would love to have CIS and Republic ships! However, I think that I remember hearing in an interview that Disney did not want FFG to develop PT stuff so that it would not distract or somehow detract consumers from the Sequel era content. Thus,  I expect First Order and Resistance ships long before we see CIS and Republic. The Empire did use Venators though, and they even appear at the end of RotS. The Venator is possibly my favorite capital ship, so I really hope that they make it in.

    I really liked the (short-lived) Resistance Fleet from TLJ and hope that Armada brings them in quickly. I'd be fine with a new core containing the Battle of D'Qar or something. But, if that was going to happen, I would have expected it to drop in December or November before the film.

    Here is the thing, You don't know it is wrong. You are assuming it is wrong. You have no idea if it is wackadoo or however you want to put it. My statement was that the information we were given is a quarter 1 release and the upcoming page says at the printer. That information is factual. The upcoming page could be wrong, sure, but that is the information we are given. You don't know it is wrong. For all you know, it is correct. So seriously, stop thinking you know the accuracy of that page because you don't.
    They have had some special preview releases and their part in Force Friday where that stuff of course wasn't on that page. Otherwise they did update that page to indicate the 3 destiny sets so far was at the printer, then on the boat then shipping. I doubt they kept that page super up to date accurate but they still updated it from time to time. That is what we do know. What we don't know is that it is absolutely wrong cause you say it is. It is entirely possible that the upcoming page is wrong and they are going to do a holiday surprise with the full release of Legacies this week and all that talk about a Q1 release and Rivals article was just to throw us off. Sure that is possible, why not.
    What we do know:
    Legacies is a quarter 1 release. - Source FFG
    Upcoming page says at the printer. (whatever that means) - Source FFG
    Rivals is getting a small limited early release on Friday. This is not the official release and is not tournament legal. The official release comes sometime in Q1. - Source FFG
    Many distributors are reporting they have legacies for sale.  - Source people on this forum - The information we were given by FFG is that they should have Rivals for sale, not legacies. Something here is umm, wackadoo......

    This set is a really weird one. I got a call from my LGS last week asking if I still wanted 3 boxes of Legacies. I went in on Saturday we talked for a bit I paid for my 3 boxes and casually asked him if he knew when the set was coming out. He told me that his distributor told him it should be in hand on the 22nd of December. We then talked about the starters and draft pack and he really had no clue they were coming anytime soon.
    I am in Canada so I feel like we are getting the same sort of information that Europe is getting, however from FFG's perspective only the US is getting product before the new year. The owner of the LGS has never been hasty with product he always contacts me about a week or two before the sets hit. I don't know what to think anymore, but what I do know is that if everyone is getting mixed dates releasing small quantities to a limited market is going to upset a lot of people.

    @ScottieATF First I am not a child and you really need to stop trolling. I don't need to be told multiple times how good or bad the upcoming page is. Everyone knows how good and bad it is. FFG puts whatever information on that page they want us to know. However, they tend to act in good faith with that page most of the time. Most companies do not do this and it is odd FFG does. That page currently is one of only two sources of official information we have, the other being the quarter one announcement. I am not making a big deal about that page and I said I take it with a grain of salt. You however are fixated with it and need to tell me multiple times it is wrong, Seriously? Why would you even care?
    Also, I don't care if FFG releases it in early Jan or not. I made the point most products don't get release during that time for various reasons. Has nothing to do with my feelings about that release date. BTW companies warehouse goods all the time. FFG does this A LOT. It is how they are able to release products world wide on the same day. Do you really think all their goods magically appear at the distributors on exactly the same day all over the world? They warehouse ALL THE TIME. They have to do this for all their goods currently in stock. Yes, it costs money, so does everything else.
     
    Anyways they clearly missed the window they wanted to release in. The seasons are very important, so much so they had a small shipment of the rival packs sent out early. It is entirely possible their worldwide release got blow up by late delivery to North America and they are going to move forward with their European release. It is odd but the seasons are so important they may just stagger the release. If that is what is happening we probably will see Legacies in the US whenever they get in. We'll know the truth of the matter on Friday if Europe is actually getting Legacies or just the Rival packs like everyone else.

    It's accurate for some products in some cases, but widely inaccurate in other instances. But most importantly for this product and specifically in this instance it is demonstratively inaccurate. This has been laid out to you multiple times, and yet you're still pulling from that well. You're citing a source that you know is false, wackadoo is the nicest term I can use to describe that.
    If the Upcoming page is 3-4 months out of sink with this product is it a reliable indicator? The answer is 100% not. Until they put a date on there it is useless, and by the time they put a date on there we already would know the date from other sources. Stop citing fake news.
    When you'd prefer to release a product is just one contributing factor to when that product get released. Do the math. They want to release 3 products a year (aka about ever 4 months), it takes 6 months to print and ship a set, shipping for China is a 6-8 week process. That means sets go to production as soon as the previous one finishes up. There's very limited slack time in the production and distribution model for this game based on what they've told us about the process. You may not prefer to release early January, but you can't hold up production of every subsequent set either. And if you have the product on hand you aren't not going to sell it. That just be spending money on warehousing that you don't need to spend while delaying making sales. Your distributors aren't going to incur that cost either.
    And while January may not be the preferred month for retail releases, not all products are equally effected by market trends. This is a lifestyle hobby game, the demand for it is going to be less impacted by seasonality then other products.
