The ties look great, but it would have been nice to see some new ships in it rather than just cards. I'm sure there'll be a couple in the new film.

That'll come with the upcoming wave releases I'm sure. Revamping the X-Wing is a crucial play, considering the namesake of the game gets almost no play competitively or aside from what I have seen.

This does look pretty cool, but I'm not overwhelmed....much...

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Soooooo goodbye T-65 hellooooo T-70!

Looks like I'll be proxying my reds as blues forever (EDIT: just realized I'd have to make the dials for this as well, though that wouldn't be very tricky) because FFG will have to be joking if they think I'm buying a whole new squad of X's to take advantage of these new ships. The fact that we see 'Red Squadron Veteran' under the T-70 makes me think there might not be any future love for the T-65, but I won't give up hope for a Title upgrade card for the venerable namesake of the game. Personally I would, every day of the week, pay the 2 points more for a PS4 X-Wing that has Boost, the impressive Tallon Roll, an extra shield, an EPT, and some other new upgrade icon. Not even a thought in my mind about it really.

Same applies to the TIE/FO. Who wants a PS1 TIE at 12 points when they can take one for 15 and pack in a Shield Upgrade as well as a Targeting Computer (6 points otherwise) then add a 'soft 2' k-turn just for fun?

Seriously though this should just replace the original box, because these ships completely out-class their counterparts.

I will also need a card deck's worth of Wired. Holy crap that's a nice 1 point card (specially considering those pilots that live for stress tokens)!!

Great find @Tawa , I'd rep you if I was allowed

No worries mate
I want that BB-8 card!


Also, the wording is interesting that the Rebellion, Resistance, Empire, First Order and S&V are listed as being primary factions.....
A hint perhaps?

It could mean that they may release more subfactions under the three Primary factions of Imperial, Rebel, and Scum as the movies progress. They've got 'good' 'bad' and 'neutral' all lined up as primary, now with the addition of the First Order and Resistance we could see stuff from different eras come into play more under their names from the requisite movies. This could mean the Prequilogy and Clone Wars might be added in...?? Galactic Republic, Confederacy of Independent Systems, Grand Army of the Republic, Separatist Droid Army all as subfactions?!

EDIT: upon reading your post again, I think it rolls like this:

Rebel
Rebel Alliance
Resistance

Imperial
The Galactic Empire
The First Order

Scum
Scum and Villainy
