Each ship has a fixed set of cards with it.

You can see them on the games' pages here!!

Just to be clear, all boxes of the same name are identical. However, the X-wing and TIE Fighter expansions come with pilots and upgrades that aren't found in the Core Set. Similarly, Imperial Aces will come with pilots and upgrades that aren't included in the TIE Interceptor expansion.

Yeah, the expansions are not randomized boosters like in CCG's, they are normal expansions each with the bits that belong to that type of expansion.

See also a great resource here: http://xwing-miniatures.wikia.com/ .

to that end, Does Fantasy Flight sell an upgrade Card pack? I haven't been able to find one if they do, however if they do in fact sell one I will gladly buy them like I did with the extra dice... If not is there anyone who has them print ready with Artscow or something? not for competition play or anything, just fun games with friends... I find there are a lot of times where we both want to load up the same Weapons or Hero Ability and don't have a good way of saying who gets what...

Also I've seen some cool fan made upgrades and such, so it would be cool if someone had a place to get those printed.

Nope. At least, not yet. But they do seem interested in reprinting some of the more popular upgrades. For instance, Push the Limits was first printed in the A-wing expansion and is one of the most versatile and heavily used upgrades in competitive play, desired for both factions, while the A-wing itself... not so much. To the delight of many X-wing players (and particularly Empire players), a couple copies of Push the Limit will be included in the upcoming Imperial Aces pack!

For casual play I just printed the cards I needed with a color printer and sleeved them. (Created an openoffice document, imported the pictures, set their sizes to correct values and printed on a slightly thicker paper.)

On a tangent here, but if FFG wants more of my money, they should make pocket pages for the upgrade-sized cards. I'd buy dozens of them.

That's a good idea, where did you get the pictures you used from?

I think I used the X-Wing Miniatures Wiki, and got the upgrade card backs from Looking for Upgrade card backs. I rotated the backs 180 degrees and laid them out below the corresponding upgrade cards, so I could clip them out together, fold them and get a little bit more sturdy results.

I have since gotten the pilot cards in a trade, and waiting for Imperial Aces to order them and other ships with the genuine upgrade cards.

You can just do an image search on google for "X-wing _____" where _____ is the name of the upgrade card. Works for every card I've ever searched for.
