Has anyone heard if GF9 will be selling the ships in resin?

I was lucky enough to pick up a copy of the game at GenCon last year that included the resin Alliance Cruiser. After I sat through the full length demo Sunday morning, the GF9 staff were selling off the oversized printed vinyl playmats that had places for cards, when they mentioned that there were resin Firefly class ships for sale. After getting over to the dealer hall, I was able to snag the last two.

Since then, I've been trying to find three more (plus a Reaver), but I haven't seen anything. I was just wondering if anyone had heard anything?

Thanks!

Some venues are listing a ship pack for October. Appears to be 5 ships, resin, for about 50 bucks.

My distributor lists it as the following:

Firefly: The Game - Ship Set (Firely, Bonnie Mae, Bonanza, Alliance Cruiser, Reaver Cutter)

SRP: $50

Spelling aside; Why it includes only 3 player ships, I don't know.

A little on the pricey side, IMO.

Thanks for the head's up.

GF9 was selling the single Firefly ships at GenCon for $10 each...so I guess in their mind $50 for 5 ships (3 different classes) isn't that bad. I'm assuming online retailers will have a bit of a discount.

BTW, how many players do you guys normally play with? We really don't do more than 3 (w/o priates/bounty hunters), as it seems to drag on.

Again, thanks!

Most likely, this is "Resin Ship Pack #1."

So far, we have 9 ships, with 5 unique models (11 ships after Blue Sun).

Resin Ship Pack 2 = Yun Qi, Artful Dodger, Interceptor, Walden, Reaver Cutter, maybe?

It could also be a case of "not enough information"

In the case of Alliance Distribution, they are just repeating the info they get from GF9. (not surprising)

In the case of GF9, it wouldn't be the first time they've been tight lipped on product info. (Also, not surprising)

Yeah, the UK distributor is repeating the same list with 'Firefly' as a ship name. Tut tut.

Anyone here pick up the resin ship set at GenCon? I've considered heading over to eBay, but I'd like to see some up-close pictures first.

There was a close up shot on one of the BGG Firefly entries forums. Can't remember if it was the main or expansion forum.

This all I can find and the price is very very steep for just 6 models. But they do look great!

Thanks for posting these detailed box shots! I'd really like to see some shots that are out of the box and on the table though. Surely someone on bgg (with way better painting skills than I) has picked these up and would be willing to share some glamour pics.
