Jackasses? You let a whole column get stalled and strafed on account of a couple of jackasses? What the hell's the matter with you?

We've been watching Rebels together as a family for a few months now. I love it. Very well-done show.

I know what my boys are getting for Christmas, now. They'll go nuts.

Seriously? Rebel Decimator with better hull/shield distribution, 4 attack and Evade action?

F*** you FFG

Except it doesn't have a 360° primary turret. Looks more like Firespray arcs.

You do know it only has a foward arc unless you add another ship, which based on it being 3/2/2/2, is likely to be 17-20 pts. And then, you can't use that ship. Luckily, it grants a second attack, but only from a Turret upgrade. Powerful, yes. But it will be an interesting flying experience.

In love with the Ghost, but it doesn't seem very ghostly.

It's haunts the imperials pretty well in the source material.

Nice, it's unique, too, so I only have to buy one Eagle 5 - ugly little thing, definitely didn't want a compelling reason to get more of them!

Good question. That's a hefty number of points.

Maybe it has synergies with the named pilots. Dengar can fire it a few times per turn. And I guess they did not want to make another Falcon.

Not *this* Christmas, anyway. Well....MAYBE the Imperial Assault Carrier. But definitely not the Ghost - FFG isn't even *planning* on releasing those until Q1 of 2016, and that plan was already noted as being disrupted by their other product releases that they can't talk about until September.

This wave is disappointing for Imperial

Tie Bomber 2 was fine, and a little interesting I guess

Tho getting Tie Advanced 2 right after... seriously?

Actually, taking another look at it... How is this just not a damn A-Wing...

Seriously, this is an A-Wing

Ironic name, like when they give us the Imperial Landing Craft, or the current Shuttle and say "now go shoot stuff"

Lots of fun stuff here, but Hera is only PS 7 and the Ghost has no green dice? That won't fly like on TV.... (It looks like Hera has a maneuver-changing power, so I guess you are supposed to move the Ghost out of arc.)

This also seems pretty notable re: Punishing One.

"Notably, the ship features a unique, asymmetrical maneuver dial."

Good question. That's a hefty number of points.

The combination of both a salvaged astromech slot and crew slot will make it a very nasty ship. K4 Security Droid and Unhinged Astromech, or Recon Specialist and R4 Agromech? Attack spend focus, get target lock, reroll blanks, spend other focus, acquire another target lock wow

So it is. Wonder if that's the only asymmetrical element.

You could almost say... if you want something disintegrated...get Dengar integrated!

I think I like this wave better than 7 as well. The Inquisitor's TIE looks a lot more interesting than the TIE Punisher, and the Rebels Ghost looks a lot more enticing of a pack than the K-Wing. Don't care about scum, though if I was collecting both ships look interesting. Wonder if they took the Jumpaster's lopsided-hull into account?

I don't think it's strong enough to really compel me to get back into X-wing, but I like what they've done here. Eventually I'd like to pick up these ships.
