FFG traditionally allows stores to sell their products ASAP, which I assume then is also true of their distributors.  

 

 

Generally, Not the Case.  Well, its not the way FFG intends, anyway.

 

 

FFG has a stated "Street Date" for Product, and product should not be sold by Vendors before that date.  Distributors are to onsell product to Vendors so they arrive the day of, or the day before, Street Date...  

 

Selling a product before Street Date is one of the fastest ways to be sanctioned by FFG and/or their Exclusive Distributors worldwide.  This can lose you Organised Play, Discount Levels, or even availability of Product, depending on your initial status.

 

 

However

 

That being said, there are different international agreements, and can deal with different international editions.   For example, the French Edition can be onsold by the French Distributor the moment its finished and finalised...  If it is done concurrently, that means it can have a street date BEFORE the English Edition;s Street Date (As what appears to be happening now)...

 

 

But Generally Speaking...   The Street Date is a North American Street Date, and although they endeavour to have it be a World-Wide Street Date, they can't (and won't) Gurantee it as such - - only state that worldwide, it may be later.

 

Considering they are late from their previously announced dates, I can't see them having any leverage enforcing a street date when the advertised date to customers was much earlier.  FFG can hardly afford to lose retailers after screwing them over with Destiny not shipping before Christmas.

Gold Squadron Y-Wing. Loses Heavy. Bomber is Blue-Blue. 12 pts

 

Y-Wing Ace, Norra Wexley. 3Blue AS, Black Bomb, 17pts. Friendly Squadrons with Bomber within Distance 1 do +1 Shield Damage on a Crit.

 

Green Squadron A-Wing. Counter 1, Bomber, 12pts

 

Tempest Squadron TIE Advanced, + Bomber, 13pts

 

Zertik Strom TIE Advanced. 3Red Anti-Squadron. A Friendly Squadron within Distance 1 can take 1 damage to let him reroll any amount of dice. 15pts.

 

Do the TiE advanced in CC lose escort?

 

So we get Gold Squadron but not Pops?  Pops gets no love from FFG, in either X-Wing or Armada.  Most senior pilot at Yavin.  The only reason we know the name of Dutch is it's spoken by Pops.

No, they still have escort.

Armada Wave 5 and CC:

"Later this year" and "Quarter 4".

 

 

Last time I checked, its later this year, and still Quarter 4.

 

Target met.

I thought the original announcement was "late Q3/Early Q4"?

 

And FFG can hardly penalize retailers for selling their Armada waves early when Destiny hasn't shipped in any quantity prior to Christmas.  

 

Plus, making a retailer sit on stock during the Christmas shopping season is a great way to screw over your customers and your retailers.

Totally can.  Totally Will.  Totally Have.

 

Christmas does not change the Agreements that are Made.

 

You may not agree with them...  But they are legal, and they are set.  

I Hate the System...  because it keeps me - a tiny, independant retailer - out of access until such time as I can guarantee volume...  Which means a massive financial gamble...

 

But it is the Rules

Still no dagger squadron

Pardon my ignorance, but what is Dagger Squadron?  Not referenced directly in the movies...

Dagger squadron is the B-wing with Swarm from CC - leaked from one of the cons, but not completely. Dunno the in-universe story.

One (minor) pet peeve is the release of squads not in the movies over ones in the movies.  But my Pops obsession is well documented ;)

So Blount swarm only counter to decimators?

 

No, Decimators being 22 points is a counter to Decimators....

 

They're not bad...  But there's only so many you can take when they don't play with the vast majority of the Imperial Synergies and Force Multipliers....
