Still might have torps, there are a couple cards not shown. I'm just presenting another possible build to look out for.

Better example of what I mean:

7B synch'd Anakin:

Anakin Skywalker (62)
R2 Astromech (6)
Delta-7B (20)
Synchronized Console (2)
Total: 90
 

Proton torp 70 point ywing Anakin:

Anakin Skywalker (70)
Proton Torpedoes (13)
Synchronized Console (2)
Total: 85

 

could add r2 for another 3

 

...would anyone even be tempted to take ywing anakin?

I dont know about a Y-Wing Ani, but im pretty interested in knowing how Precog will be costed and what it will actually do.

SNR with more options that causes a strain instead of a hit damage if you don't have the action on you bar is how what I can see reads to me.

But if the goal is just passing a lock, can't 7B anakin already do that, except also have a real attack and have an endgame as well?

no no no passing a lock. I get to take a lock, then pass a lock to someone else. Think of the action economy! I'll pair it with garven for even more of it!

Looks like SNR mixed with Adv Sensors, to me? You can boost/barrel roll pre-maneuver, you only take strain if you don’t have the action, but you also can’t take any more actions on your activation?

There was a while I was flying Anakin, Jag, and Sinker, all with Synchronized Console.  The lock-passing part felt decent.

I stopped because games overall got kinda bloody.  ARCs would die, and leak MOV like mad.  But the SynCon was nice.

I've found he doesn't get them as often as you'd think

I played him for like 3 games, so I'll defer to your experience.

though I'd think he'd be about as good as blount at getting it off?

That's massively disrespectful and I love it 

I'm interested in seeing of 3p0 and snips are crews or gunners, because 7th fleet on a cheap y wing seems stronk

If the supposition that the Green Y-Wing is R2-D2 is correct then 3-P0 is likely to be crew. Ahsoka is a gunner.

i have maybe a dozen games? but ususally my opponent had some idea of what was happening, i think blount is more hype because you have this stupid cheap extra ship that can randomly give you an extra die as opposed to "just" rerolls. Horton ususally was hanging outwith cassian wedge and failed barrell braylen when i played him, which may have affected my opponents willingness and the lists ability to set him up

that's how I was running him too. Maybe my meta just has too many people willing to joust me.

I care not for this efficiency blather, I'm gonna fly a 100pt pre boosting Anakin Y with a stupid amount of toys and laugh like a drain.

Or maybe just Matchstick with an ICT, R4 and C3P0.

And Ahsoka. And Expert Handling. Aw heck, and an EPB.

I seriously can't be helped.

Maybe the second card in the pic with a range 1-3 bullseye 2 dice will act like built-in ion Torps or something. 

Feel like these Y's mostly ion-blasted everything, but not always necessarily with their ion turrets, so I'm curious as to the apparent lack of Torps.

It has a Force charge cost to use the ability.

also looks like it has Advanced Sensors "no more actions" rider.

How long before SNR rotates out once this thing is legal?

I'm pretty surprised we haven't seen more Nu Blasters.  they seem really annoying for their points.
