  1. We're getting the Gozanti cruiser, the T-70 and the Tie/FO before the end of the year and US distributors have already ordered them. The rest of Wave 8 isn't happening until next year, sadly. Honestly, I didn't believe FFG could manage 3 major Star Wars releases before Christmas: Armada Wave 2, X-wing wave 8 and the new Imp assault Hoth wave; it was just to much to expect we'd see it drop in the same month. o7
  2. It still kinda falls under where my sources are and I don't want to get anybody in trouble. Essentially, my normal information flow is being cut off for reasons outside of my control. o7
  3. Hello boys and girls, one and all from the Armada community, Happy news from FFG: your Star Wars Armada Wave 2 goodies will be available in the US starting Tuesday,November 24th. Get out there and and blow some Rebel scum to bits, or fight the evil oppression of the Empire. Also, this may very well be my last unofficially official post for product releases; it's been a good run. (Though, I will still poke around in the forums; I love seeing repaints) To head you off with some answers to some questions I've seen: I still won't reveal my information sources; let's just say I won't be privy to my sources any longer. Yes, I'm a dude. No, I don't work for FFG. No, I'm not a penguin IRL. This community has been good fun to communicate with and I'm sad I won't be a source of info for you fine folks any longer. As always everyone, Fly safe, good hunting o7 Newt
  4. No 'Newt' date yet, but I should be getting it soon. Someone also posted in here that US distributors have the product in hand: not that I'm aware. Also, if distributors have product they must wait until the ship/ street date of the product before they can release it. For example; if wave 2 were to release on the 20th then the distributor has to wait until that date to ship the product as that is the date they are allowed to. Breaking shipping/ street dates runs the distributor the risk of losing suppliers. It varies company to company. o7
  5. No ship/ street date yet. Orders must be placed by US distributors next Tuesday, the 13th. So I'm thinking early to mid November. But I'll make a post when I find out o7
  6. Community member #1: "What of the reports of the rebel fleet massing near Sullust?" Rest of the community: " They are of no concern to us." Hello community, It has been very quiet on the Armada front as the fleets mass at Sullust for a skirmish and taste of what's to come for Armada Wave 2. I am happy to announce (officially unofficial and discreetly of course) that there is a light at the end of the tunnel for the Wave 2 release. I was just notified that orders for US distributors are due on October 13th. **Speculation!** It looks like we're going to have a mid-late November release for wave 2. I, for one, am looking forward to see how the community utilizes the new pieces and am excited to see the paint jobs and conversions that come along with it. When my Bothans report back on when the official street date is you will know. Until then, Fly safe and good hunting, o7 Newt
  7. We are halfway through Q3 already. I know you always provide solid info, so I'm not accusing you of stating the obvious and claiming it as insider info. Was the 3 a typo and did you mean to say Q4? Hey rowdyoctopus, I double confirmed my source indeed says Q3, but I don't quite believe the accuracy on it either. Things are a bit jumbled with post-gencon and pending episode 7. But I'll be back when I get the in-store date. o7 No problem. Thanks for the updates. Your wording made it seem like Q2 was possible still, was the only reason I asked Sorry, rowdy, the context was that we were told July initially, now we're looking at end of September at the earliest. So, in my mind, it's a delay. o7

  9. Hi boys, Sorry I haven't given you anything to go on lately; information has been chaotic with the buildup, now cooldown of Gencon. Armada wave 2 has been delayed until Q3 and even this is still a 'projection'. I'm not any happier about it than you; I'm looking forward to full forward firepower for my Imperial fleet. With the cat out of the bag about a super secret release that's 'on the water' that may or may not be in line with Hasbro's release on Sept. 4 for episode 7 you can imagine logistics are pretty twisted. X-wing probably has the longer stick in this situation so Armada looks like it got sacrificed. However, for you x-wing fans that didn't make it to the show, wave 7 will be in your hands August 25th and the Raider has been available for 2 days since this post. That's all for now. As always, when I know something I'll let you know. Safe flying o7, Newt
  10. Armada Wave 2 delayed til Q3 (confirmed, sadly)
