My guess is pretty quick here! Mid November would make the most sense, but they may announce it after the TIE/rb wave.

Mid November would be keeping with tradition.

- Empire: Tie/ph Phantom re-release. Comes with 1-2 new named pilots. 

I would love it if they said going forward reprints will have new stuff but they probably need to prepare the community before they announce it and hopefully offer card packs.  Some people would absolutely lose it.

I'm kinda hoping it's the next Epic box. Like, they just announced and inserted the Structures rules, we're all waiting on a few re-release Huge Ship items, and the Hyperspace ring is in the Actis box. I'm just saying, that feels like build up. Now it's just a question of how long they keep us in antici................

......

Pation!

I am curious why you want it? Its almost completely similar to the ordinary y-wing we already have in two factions.

I quoted the B-Wing, actually. I like B-Wings, and I like Resistance. 😎🍺

EDIT: Wouldn't mind seeing Resistance Y-Wings, though. I like them, too, and it might be fun to be able to include one or two in a Resistance list. They're already in 3 factions, I believe, but that's not a bad thing. Ubiquitous workhorses.

I think they got a good return with the hotshots and aces cardpack, and we should see another one with wave 9, or as part of an 8.5. Speaking of which what would that look like?

I want ffg to experiment with their next wave of card packs.  For Scum I would do a heist or bounty pack with a few pilots and an epic mission or 2 and price it low.  For rebels and imperials I would a do a themed battle pack.  Their squadron packs would impact the the ships they emphasize but they would be based on notable battles like Endor, Scarrif, or to maximize options they could create a battle.  This would be more robust and include multiple epic missions and more pilots for each faction than the scum pack but would be priced higher.  

For the ST and PT I would have one do a battle pack and than the other two would follow the scum pack path.  The clone wars has more content to pull from so I would give them the battle pack.    

If it was well received you could alternate it so factions that got a battle pack the last pack would get solo releases.  Obviously they may need to take a "what if approach" on some of the combinations (resistance verse separatists for instance).   Generally FO and separatists seem to be the least played factions on the tournament scene so they could be a good test to see if its worth it to do individual packs.  

If it doesn't work I don't think anybody was disappointed with the aces pack so they could just go back to it.

A little more agile, probably a little more shielded, maybe a modular hardpoint, might even have a turret that cannot shoot forward, stuff like that.

I'm still advocating for a 2 dice 180 rear arc y-wing. Plus I think the punch on the front should finally be upgraded, 2 dice front arc and 3 dice bullseye?

Sounds great to me. Here's a wild one.

White barrel roll.

I like the idea of it having a cannon slot instead of turret but it treats front arc cannons as turrets instead as the ship ability. The white barrel roll fits too.

So another appearance of the Aurore class freighter on the V-Wing Esk config card (after the MGT sentry).

I do not really think we get it in the game, though. 

Not all appearances mean a ship in artwork is realised, as we had the LAAT/Ie in 1st ed pictured.

Just gonna post some baseless speculation/wish list for what might be coming in future waves. Not necessarily the next wave, but just future stuff in general.

All the stuff I really wanted to see for the Republic is about to be released soon if it isn't out already. A shuttle of some kind, likely the one that is pictured on the I3 generic V-wing seems like a pretty likely choice for a future release though. While I personally don't really like it, there is the Twilight as an option as well. It's pretty fugley IMO, but I'm sure they could do something with it to make it mechanically interesting. Beyond those I don't really have anything for a wish list or expectations.

Hopefully the Separatists are gonna get the Ginivex Fanblade Starfighter. I assume they'll get it eventually if only to get Assajj as a pilot on something. All the main ships from the films have been covered for them, and the only other ships for them that I see as a definite inclusions are the Sheathipede and probably the Rogue-class to get Cad Bane in there. Other than that I'm not really sure what other good picks for them could be.

Resistance needs their Y and B wings. People have also been asking for the T-85, but I could go either way on that. FO needs a bomber in general, and they'll probably get the Dagger and the Whisper at some point as well. Not sure if there will be two versions of the Whisper, and I don't much care as both versions seem very similar to ships the FO already have.

Scum will see the Razor Crest eventually. Other than that, a squad pack with new options for existing platforms sounds better than adding more ships.

Rebels and Imperials are both just in need of new options for their existing ships too. Can't wait to see the next wave announcement to see if those leaks are real or not.

I think the rumoured packs may be just card packs for specific factions (Rebel, Imp, Scum) as they are essentially finished and FFG may re-release ships in single blisters. The PT and ST factions have a smaller number of ships so I think we will see these factions getting most of the new content for a while.

Theta-class shuttle. She is a beauty!

Palpatine needs a fitting ride!

PS: but Republic will not be over without the Clone Z-95. Than, I can't see what FFG could add more.

Well, that would do for me, but what a missing opportunity to add some cool new repaints...

The re-releases of OT ships 100% should have new repaints, like what they did with M3-As, Z-95s and the like. Starviper re-release needs a sweet new paint job and moving wings. Scurrg repaint will happen for sure. TIE Phantom and maybe gunboat. YT-2400 with new paint and E-Wing new mould and paint.

I think Seps will get the Rogue-class, Republic will get clone Z-95 before the Theta-class shuttle as they’ve just got the LAAT/i as a brew carrier option. Resistance Y and B, First Order should get FO bomber next and then maybe Dagger and possibly Whisper.

Don't you think it's very weird that we are most likely getting this ship but it won't come with Palpatine crew since that was in the ARC pack? 😅

I feel like we just got this shuttle, it just looks like a LAAT!
