We are still checking prototypes, color schemes and such. The release date should be Autumn, if we believe Nexus editrice's Spring 2006 Catalogue.

We should start with a 4 planes basic box (more or less equivalent to Famous Aces), plus 8 blisters: the same four planes with the same colo scheme and with another different one. Then... we'll see how much you like it, and we will go ahead in consequence.

I'm really excited for these, but the only thing that will get me to buy more (if any) is the way they are packaged.
I already have all of the sets (minus the boosters), so I wouldn't want to have extra decks of maneouvres. Will the blisters be JUST the planes, or will they have cards as well?

Justin can be relieved to find that having extra maneuver decks is one of the easiest "problems" to correct.

Most people playing WoW always want more decks, so they can more easily fly multiples of the same plane types.

I'm sure he can sell or trade any extra maneuver decks without too much trouble!

But speaking of the blisters/boosters, is there any news on release?

Since it's been 5 months or so, I'll also ask.

Boosters have been on sale since this summer. I do not exactly when they have been released and this happened in different moments in each nation, but they are available in the shops (brick&mortar as Internet ones) as they have been available in the shows (GenCon, ModCon in Italy, now Lucca games).
On BGG it seems that the owners are at the moment nearly 100 for each of them:

Miniatures are late since the producer oversimplified the color schemes. We are waiting for him to make more detailed ones. Hope it won't pass too much time.

All the best!

Andrea
