I know there are lots of threads on this, but thought I would just see what you guys thought to my choices!

I'm planning to play as the Rebels/Resistance combined, so was thinking:

1 x Force Awakens Core
1 x Original Core
1 x Heroes of the Resistance

Does that sound like a good combination? Any useful cards that I should have from other expansions?

Those are the first 3 purchases I made. Maybe also add Imperial Veterans or something like TIE Advance so you have a couple more options on the Imperial side. Just to be clear, one person plays only one faction, either Rebel, Imperial or Scum.

Good luck to you and your wallet!

If you can, you might want to buy the crew card Kanan Jarrus. He goes very well with the Heroes Millennium Falcon title. Other than that, it depends on how competitive you want your lists to be vs. wanting to fly casual. I would also pick up a U-wing as it has a lot of great cards, rebel crew, and fits in nicely a lot of places.

Abandon all hope that you will remain a rational consumer of this game.

I wanted Jek Porkins but did not want the transport, so I sold all the transport stuff on BGG. This is about a year ago. My new transport showed up just yesterday.

If you're playing casually, the Rebel Aces pack is a good one, letting you try out a couple of different ships.

As it stands, you're got three X-Wing variants and the Falcon; you've got a decent array of different pilot and upgrade combinations, but very little ship variety.

Awesome, thanks for all the advice guys! Think I'll stick to the above and then see how it goes! As you all said, no doubt my wallet won't be loving me this year...
