So... what about the TIE Reaper?

Recommended Posts

No, but you'll probably have to wait at least a week.

I suspect tuesday next week would make sense; there's a none-trivial chance there will be a few early release sales at Worlds (they've done it before), which means anything not previewed can be expected to be spoiled within 0.00024 seconds of the first person with a smartphone getting their grubby fingers on one.

Since worlds is end-of-next-week, then one week from yesterday makes a certain amount of sense. For whatever reason, Tuesday seems to be X-wing news day.

I'd not be surprised to see early releases, especially if the status gets updated to boated shortly, I'd also be fairly surprised NOT to see a Solo wave announcement get added to the current wave for release at the same time, as part of the Hyperspace Report.  None of the other SW games except maybe Destiny really have space for Solo related stuff at the moment so it seems most likely that X Wing will get some.

So, how do early releases at places like Worlds or GenCon work? Are they available for anyone there to buy?

Yes.

The products are still not formally released until the release is announced on the FFG site, though, so they're not tournament eligible until the relevant amount of time has passed after that.

Functionally it just gives us all a full spoiler rather than having to wait.

I suspect they might be doing this not least because I'm 90% sure there are 2 less PS1 X Wings and 1 less Servo, and 2 more as yet unnamed U Wings and one more upgrade card (K2 in both cases, hopefully) in Renegades, just because the number of ship cards and ship bases don't match up.

Been playing a year so not sure, but have they ever posted two previews in one week?

I'd love to see the Reaper preview this Friday, and then they can focus on two things we are missing at the moment, at the Live event on May 1st:

  • Release date
  • Possible Scum Falcon
