Tell us about the components! Pics please!
Sorry, no pics (lacking equipment and skills) but the components are amazing. Nice glossy cards, thick, sturdy cardboard boards, minis are very acceptable and the Death Star, Millenium Falcon and Executor are especially nice with a "metallic" look and semi painted. The stormtrooper figures are a bit small and hard to recognize but in good light and from close by they look pretty good. All in all I'm surprised by the high quality components.
Is the Falcon actually gold like in those pictures? Do you have the regular edition as a comparison of the board and card materials?

The Millenium Falcon is for sure NOT gold. I would call it darkish bronze with black details.

But it's not the color of the actual Falcon, so it's still insanely annoying and stupid.

That may be true but all the other figures (red X-wings, yellow Y-wings, blue B-wings, light gray Tie fighters and a silverish Executor) don't match the color schemes of the "real" spaceships either. I can easily live with that.

Box looks substantially nicer.

So the cardboard itself isn't thicker (nor are the cards), just with embossing and a glossy finish? Somewhat disappointing, looks like the extra money went into the extra minis and the bigger box and inserts.

I had literally just ordered some micromachine items about two hours before I saw that the BB Edition was live.

Now that I've seen what the BB offers I'm going to stick with my copy. While the box and inserts are very nice, and I like that the board is not folded in quarters, I like the extras I've purchased better than what comes in the BB.

I was especially underwhelmed by the Stormtroopers. I also like having Luke and Darth figures and eventually want to get Han for Endor track. I also worry that I've already played the game so much I may not have that many plays left. Not to mention the FFG Star Wars Rebellion seems like it could be the next big thing,and the BB is about half the purchase price.

Wow thank you for that Narayana!

I told my brother who lives in the States to buy it for me. The game isn't available at Amazon.ca yet, but I doubt it will be cheaper than $40 (with the exchange rate).

If you bought it for full price before, you may be able to get the $20 refunded if you contact Amazon today. I was able to get my refund.

Yeah, Amazon is good about that. Send them an email through their customer service page, they usually will refund price differences if you bought it close to a sale.

FWIW "close" means "less than a week." I contacted them about mine (ordered 2.5 weeks ago) and they wouldn't refund it.

It seems to be that it may largely depend on which representative you talk to.
