Ideas for Future Waves

2 Pack similar to "Aces" or the Rebel Transport set, Titled: "Corellians"

 

X-Wing (Corran Horn's Green X-Wing)

 

Pulsar Skate

 

Corran Horn X-Wing Pilot Card

Mirax Terrik Pilot Card

Booster Terrik Pilot Card

Whistler Astromech

 

Generic Corsec X-Wing Pilot Card

Generic Rogue Squadron X-Wing Pilot Card

Generic Smuggler Pilot Card

 

 

How about a Nebulon B Escort Frigate with Both Imperial Pilots and Rebel Pilots so each side can use the ship.  This would make this more marketable especially since it would probably be more expensive than the Tantive IV.

 

I would like to continue seeing new ships, but also some more alternate paint fighters.  How cool would it be to have all 12 Rogue Squadron X-Wings?

 

Maybe a Stealth X-Wing!

 

Let me know what everyone is thinking

Fill out a mercs/bounty hunter force. Bring in Slave II, Bossk's ship, 4-lom's, Denghar's, etc... Pirates and others. Allow a third faction, perhaps one that combines the Firespray and the YT?

With EU's reclassification as the altcanon Legends, I can't call Wave 5. Outrider I think's likely, and the Skipray Blastboast and TIE droid I can see FFG making, but that's not even a wave of ships. I genuinely don't know.

 

FFG will surprise us. I for one would never have predicted the TIE phantom.

I do kinda hope FFG produce a 'classics' set. Prequel film ships that are still functional etc. The time gap isn't that huge, there are real life fighters operating today who's designs are older than the republic/rebellion era gaps.

I'd love to see them do a Vulture Droid swarm. Or the ARC fighter.

I'm fine with prequel ships if they are not compatible with the current ships. So I don't have to buy them and I don't have to face a Naboo Starfighter in a tournament.

Mara Jade and Lando Calrissian flew yachts that were quite similar to each other. Would be fun to see that happen :)

 

I'd even guess that Jade's Fire (Mara's ship) and Lady Luck (Lando's) could have different base stats or be used as titles.  When it comes to other pilots I'm thinking Lobot has probably flow LL a few times and then there are always some "pretty and/or important" people to serve as the generic model.

 

 

On the Imperial side I want to see the Skipray.  While FFG would probably shake things up I see it as being a LOT like the Firespray except it can have a turret primary weapon at 2 dice and may have some differing upgrades.  It could also include a "Heavy Ion Cannon" upgrade which is what its actual primary weapon system would be but in game it is better represented this way.

I wouldn't be surprised to see a future line with ships from the upcoming Star Wars Rebels. It would be good for cross-marketing between properties. Plus the Ghost looks pretty neat.

•  Imperial Aces 2 (featuring TIE Advanced / TIE Bomber)

•  Rebel Aces 2 (featuring Stealth X-Wing / Y-Wing)

Stealth-X feels a little too forward in the timeline, honestly. A "Battle of Yavin" set with Advanced/Y-wing would be neat, though.

  Nebulon would be a bit too big i think. but the others would be cool..  also all the Wraith squadron pilots would be cool as well...

I see another Imperial Aces including the Defender - background wise all pilots had to be aces to get into the thing, in the Tie Fighter game you fight along-side Darth Vader on several missions, so a Vader pilot card for the T/D makes sense... perhaps a Title for it. Might make it pricey as can be... so might not be a popular choice but makes sense... or a Tie Fighter aces pack.

 

Perhaps an X-wing/Y-wing repaint Rebel aces with some nice titles or upgrade set (lots of un-love for Y-Wings, maybe a title or mod could make them popular again) 

 

If they do another set of Aces for each side I'd imagine a lot of stuff for balancing effectiveness of ships so we might see much more variety in tournaments.

 

Transports the size of the falcon that have appearances in games/films/etc seem a good bet, Outrider probably guaranteed. 

 

If they do Nebulon B frigates then maybe a Nebulon B for the rebels as the medical frigate and a Nebulon B 2 for the imperials so there's an option to have different models for both sides - but it's a big difference in size between a CR90 and a NebB (300m vs 150m... might be too big and expensive).

 

Imp Assault gunboat would be a logical choice (though maybe very close to a B-Wing statwise, which might make it less likely... FF seem to want fleets to be different between the two factions).

 

Rogue squadron X-wings would be really nice touch, but I wonder if there's a copyright issue... 

 

And if they did 12 alternate paint X-wings the Imperial player would be crying out for something similar - even if they had to make stuff up for it - Imperial navy was much grey'er but I'd imagine they could come up with something (Royal guard Tie Fight and Defender maybe? Or perhaps some variation based on new republic)

The Gunboat may be similar statwise, but that'd be it. The dial and actions would be very different.

It would be nice to see the Nssis-class Chiss Clawcraft. It would make for a beautiful model.

I think a Hapan Miy'til would be interesting (if not comparable to an A-wing) to offset the Clawcraft, or "Clutches" from I, Jedi

I would second the imperial gunboat/missile boat and the YT-2400

 

I also would love to see some more Y Wing options BTL-A4 (exchange turret for cannon). "Longprobe" (exchange turret for sensor slot).  Plenty more pilots

 

Tie Avenger is a great choice as are the new/old ships from Rebels (I too like ghost, though am not so sure about the ugly parasite fighter).

 

Also since they have mentioned the dune lizard in the rpg, if a third faction comes out, all fo the Mandal Motors fighters (dune lizard, syck. kimogila, krayt) would be great options.

 

The imperial customs frigate would be a good choice for the imperial huge ship or maybe that new ship at the begining of the SW:Rebels trailer that is dropping TIEs

 

I would love to see an E-9 Explorer, but that is really more an RPG vessel not suited to this game.

Rebel:

not a bad stand in from Firestorm Armada, unfortunately everything else from that range is too small scale wise.

I'm probably late to this thread but i'd love to see a 3rd faction ships (Hutt/Nym/black suns,Pirate)

 

Suff like the ships that were introduced in Star Wars Galaxies: Jump To Lightspeed. (like 12 year old game lol).

 

I'd definetly want to see 3rd faciton but their ships are not interchangeable with empire or rebel alliance.

 

I am sure we will see new ships from the movies coming out in the next few years but i'd like to see some of the EU ships we've already heard of.

Also:  please oh please oh please oh please.  Assault Gunboats and MIssle gunboats .. i will so start an imperial collection of fighters if these show up.

Love the outrider and bounty hunter ships but I have to advocate for the inclusion of, my boy, Dengar and his Punishing One.

Can I get an amen?

Rogue squadron X-wings would be really nice touch, but I wonder if there's a copyright issue... 

 

And if they did 12 alternate paint X-wings the Imperial player would be crying out for something similar

 

They wouldn't really need 12 different paint jobs for Rogue Squadron unless they were representing the custom jobs they all had done when they resigned their commissions and absconded with their X-wings so that they could liberate Thyferra from Imperial influence without the red tape. And you just know that any player willing to field that untidy bunch is going to want to paint them all themselves.

 

Speaking of the Bacta War, they were also accompanied by a squadron of Twi-Lek Chir'daki fighters, an Ugly comprised of a TIE ball cockpit with four gyroscopically-mounted X-wing engines, S-foils and laser cannons, which spun around the cockpit like a B-wing.
