Is this the current price now for this games starter? Thought when it came out it was $60+? Also is it worth $99 or will more come out and the price drop back where it should be?

The MSRP was about $79. It was available at discounters for about $59. Eventually, I think it will be in ready stock again. The demand has outstripped supply.

Looks like $72 is about your best price for a preorder of the reprint.

I've caught some online stores bumping up their prices on some remaining 1st edition items and the starter kit may be one of them.

Thanks for the feed back. I understand supply and demand, just seems like taking forever for more starters to appear. Plus with what sounds like shipping damage problems on the next wave, I think I will just wait until they get problems fixed and more starters at normal prices.

The Starter sets are scheduled for a July restock, so still a little ways off, but worth the wait. The problems with the 2nd wave will probably be limited to the full '12 ships' packs sent to the KS backers, since individual ships from retailers will have additional visual quality control checks from them, when they receive them and again when they send them out to customers. If you already have the counters and the ship logs, then I'd pre-order some Wave 2 ships, I'll be getting my 12 ships this week, then 4 more pre-order sloops when they go retail.

Well, I could not stand it anymore and went ahead and took the plunge. CSI just had a few more starters pop up at $99 each(ouch), and the series 2 ships came out and the stress/pressure was too great to ignore - so I went all in along with all 8 of the series 1 ships. After reading of all the damage in shipping on the series 2 ships, I think I will hold off until the problem gets taken care of. Which maybe by then, may allow me to refill the coffers.(of course the next X-Wing series is right around the corner too-Double Ouch!) cry
Expensive time right now to be a gamer.

Missed that by a long shot, CSI has 20+ for $60.00 the last couple days. Guess folks just don't know what the are talking about sometimes.

Snooze you lose shake...If you're really interested in a game...just get it when offered vs trying to save $2 ... otherwise, you might wait a long time or pay a premium to get it.
