All gear, no species or specialties.  There's a two page spread that explains a few talents that (i guess) aren't in all the core books but may be referenced by some of the gear listed.
Barrage, Blooded, Brace, Jury Rigged, etc

It includes the Unwieldy weapon quality and the Lightsaber(Brawn) skill which are probably previously only FAD entries.

The rest of the book is broken down into weapon/armor/gear type

Blasters
Exotic Weapons
Brawl Weapons
Melee Weapons (lightsabers are included in this chapter)
Explosives and Ordinance
Armor
Attachments
Equipment

All the equipment details are within the description blurb so no need to look at the "Brawl weapons chart" to check damage, crit, costs.  All are included on the description.

Overall, nice look to the book.  Have not had time to go through and see what are all new items versus reprinted but if you have a question, I'll be glad to post when I have time

Yea, I'd love to hear anything standout or interesting from the book, or if it just in general has lost of stuff that could effectively let a group use it and one of the core books for most purchases. For specific questions: Is the book focused mostly on OT era stuff or did they reprint some of the Clone Wars book stuff in there? Are there any unique armor sets like a specific Stormtrooper armor set, or Darth Vader set for those who might want to retheme the suit to some other Sith lord? Is the book mostly focused on Hero equipment and weapons and if so are there any standouts like Lando's Closet.

Probably questions better for a thread dedicated to the book than us all further commandeering the prophet’s thread. 😁

Sorry folks no boat party as apparently FFG's transporters are on line. Went from "In Development" to "Shipping Now" overnight. Guess they skipped the whole printing thing.

They don't print any more... they just conjure it up from the darkest reaches of the force.

No, but it is a rare occurrence. The only other time was an eight-day window between the release of Far Horizons/Onslaught at Arda I (which both released the same day) and the announcement of Stay on Target.  08/14/2014 through 08/22/2014 are the only days where we've had literally nothing announced.

Then lets hope for a Friday announcement or one sometime next week. Of course there is the chance they are planning on doing an ST era book with it being announced on Force Friday, October 4th, as well too.

With Ep 9 coming out we'll definitely be seeing a sequel trilogy book relatively soon. I'd expect something along the lines of Gadgets & Gear for vehicles and starships as well. Beyond that, once the Mandalorian has a couple of seasons under its belt (assuming it's a success), we'll probably see something bridging the gap between Eps 6 and 7.

Sadly, I agree that we're definitely looking at a point in the franchise that demands a pause. 

Unfinished sequel trilogy and unreleased TV show means that whole era books could be waiting until the time is right.

I really wanted more region books, with species and planet writeups for other parts of the galaxy 😭

But I won't hold out hope at this point, there really hasn't been any movement there in a while. It just seemed like that would've been a perfect way to keep content coming, the galaxy is huge.

Edit: Also kicking myself that my order on Miniatures Market is paired with the Genesys EPG. Won't get my G&G until both arrive in stock. Hope you folks are enjoying it!

At least a year after ep 9. That is book production time

That was a little different though - Stay on Target had been displayed in a cabinet at Gen Con so we all knew it existed and the announcement was coming. It may not have been announced in an article but showing it off at a Con is basically the same. 

How long are peeple thinking until we get the announcement for Starships and Speeders?

I'm putting ten credits on Vehicles and Vessels myself.

I just called my FLGS and they said the release date was on Halloween.

Maybe they just got their dates mixed up, reading 13th (when it actually dropped) as 31st (Halloween)?

In all seriousness, I'm hoping the quick turn around on books going from development to stores is an ongoing thing.

My FLGS is showing October 31st as well.  :(

(Working from the assumption you’re in the US....)

Additionally odd is that FFG recently shifted to Friday release dates, and 10/31 is a Thursday. Your shop may want to check with their distributor, because stores have it. There were still 5-6 on the shelf after I picked mine up Friday.
