Since FFG made my last wish for a wave to come true, here are more: (too soon?)

Wave 8:

  • Republic: V-Wing
  • Separatists: Rogue-class starfighter
  • Empire: TIE Brute

Wave 9:

  • Republic: Eta-2
  • Separatists: Droid tri-fighter
  • Resistance: X-Wing T-85

Wave 10 and beyond:

  • Separatists: Jango's Slave 1

Post from January. Keep it up with the good stuff, FFG.

The article only confirmed two though (if I'm not mistaken) and there were a lot more than two on the roster that was released by ProTech. And since SKU means stock keeping unit, we don't know if they are even all for x-wing. It just says that there are 7 allotted for star wars. My guess is that x wing gets the HMP, LAAT/i, and the Xi class shuttle. The remaining slots probably go to legion. Probably the Iden commander and the Inferno squad. For the rebels Cassian commander and the clan wren squad. If I'm not mistaken those were the "next" thing for legion

Reading the article, it says specifically that they are X-Wing SKUs

"It plans 40 releases over the four-week period, including Plaid Hat Game’s Forgotten Waters, seven Marvel Champions releases, four Star Wars Legion SKUs, Cosmic Encounter Duel, five releases for CMON’s Song of Ice and Fire, Sheriff of Nottingham 2nd Edition, three Helvetiq titles, three Djeco titles, and seven Star Wars X-Wing SKUs, among others."

These are the damage deck skus that have been soft rolled out for a while. I imagine the legion skus are likewise the soft rolled out ones where other parts of the world have them.

WTK-85A transport (title: Bestoon Legacy) - is it Scum? was this ship originally piloted by Rey's parents? well, has at least one First Order (Ochi) and one Resistance (Poe) pilot. Oh, I think it featured in some later episodes of The Resistance. More info released.

Is it strange that I can see this ship being releasable for all 3 factions as a sort of combo pack? I.E. 1-2 generic pilots for each faction and 1-2 limited (named) pilots for each faction in one box with it having slightly different upgrade slots depending on which faction you're flying it for (all 3 have been given access to Illicit so across the board same would work).

Edit:

W.A.G. Stats for the ship:

Size: Large

Weapons: Either 2Icon arc standard front and 2 Icon arc single turret

                   or        2Icon arc standard front and Upgrade turret

Dial: ? Not really sure, I may have to rewatch TRoS a couple of times focusing on the scenes of it flying but at the moment the Firespray dial with the 3 straight downgraded to white and the Tallon rolls removed seems to fit my recollection. It's definitely not as nimble as its smaller cousin (the Quadrijet Transfer Spacetug).

Slots: Aside from the possible turret slot (depending on how the weapons are set up) I'm thinking Tech, Mod (maybe 2), 2x Crew and Illicit for all three versions.

Action Bar: Focus, Red Barrel Roll, ?

After some reseach about the X-Wing 2nd Ed: "Continental" (Wt) Expansion Pack, I found something who really intrigue me  :

https://www.lionrampantimports.com/x-wing/x-wing-2nd-ed-fugutives-and-collaborators-squadron-pack-ffgswz85

Sadly no picture of this.

I know they have talk about the return of aces packs from the adepticon 2020 panel, so this a good news can wait to see more ! :)

Phoenix Cell Squadron Pack = B(lade)-wing + A-wing(s)!

Bonus: new models and configurations for those ships:

  • Hera Syndulla
  • Ahsoka Tano
  • Sabine Wren
  • Ezra Bridger
  • Cleat
  • Secon Daree
  • Dicer
  • Duke
  • Kay Karno
  • Mart Mattin

You missed the most important one!

But yeah, my money's on:

Rebels: B-Wing and 2 A-Wings (Possibly an X-Wing instead of a B-Wing, possibly an attack shuttle or Y-Wing instead of one A-Wing, but neither seems likely)

Empire: TIE Defender and 2 Interceptors (Possibly a bomber instead of one interceptor)

Resistance: X-Wing and Salvaged YT-1300 (F&C might be scum but seems unlikely and goes against what the devs said about the first squad pack being Resistance, unless EpIX went over that badly)

I really hope that the Blade wing is in that Phoenix squad pack. I've got plenty of A, X, and Y-wings so whatever combination of those wind up being there doesn't really matter much to me personally. That version of the B-wing is so cool though, and it would be a perfect place to add a gunner configuration and some kind of new cannon or something to represent that awesome beam weapon.

Add Gunner Slot

I think I’ve come around to agreeing with you on this. The clincher for me amid all the speculation was the B-Wing foils from Hotshots—how would FFG make that available again, if not by releasing another B-Wing that they can package it with? Simply put, there’s no more elegant way. Putting a B in the aces pack here (with maybe an extra foils or two) is clean and straightforward.

Not to mention this gorgeous painting:

(and hopefully, a new model)

Doubt we'd get a new model (even the Royal Guard TIE in 1.0 didn't) but there's no way they'd pass up that sweet sweet paint scheme. This is the real moneymaker here.

If we get two A-Wings I'm hoping for one painted like Hera's and one painted green like Sabine's or else the Phoenix paint scheme from Rebel Aces 1.0 (the McQuarrie painting version). I do wonder if the third ship could be an Attack Shuttle though.

Also seriously hoping for a little extra cardboard in there for a Sato's Hammer YT-2400 and maybe some X/Y/HWK pilots. Unlikely but I can dream, can't I?

Technically no, but the only historical “squadron pack” skus we have as reference were 3 ships, 2 of one kind and a third of another.

Indeed. 3 small ships looks reasonable (for the Rebel and Imperial squadrons), but I can't see other composition for the Resistance if not a "re-imagined" Heroes of the Resistance, with the Scavenged YT-1300 and Poe's new orange/white T-70 X-wing.
