Great price on the starter pack- cheaper than it was a few weeks ago during Amazon's 30% off sale.

I finally pulled the trigger to get into this game- excited to try it! Now will some of the expansions drop?!

Is this really necessary if I already have 2 original core sets?

It comes with new asteroids for competitive play, a new better-balanced damage deck that you can choose to use for competitive play, two First Order TIE Fighters (which have completely different statlines, pilots, and upgrades than regular TIE Fighters), and a Resistance T-70 X-Wing. It's the only way to get the BB-8 Astromech and the Elite upgrade "Wired" is in it (Wired is only in one other expansion, the Special Forces TIE expansion).
If you play competitively, it's a must for the damage deck alone. If you only play casually, Poe in a T-70 with BB-8 is fun to fly.

Agreed.

And although I've picked up the Force Awakens for $15 sometime ago in the past and it's nice to have the new models and deck, I still prefer to just get out an original X-Wing and a couple of TIEs, and have a good ol' fashion Star Wars '77 dogfight.

CSI use to do targeted sales based on a expandable game for a bit. I wished they would go back to them once in a while.

I am proud to have opposed those who describe all who oppose them as "Tender Flowers" and "Special Snowflakes".

Hmm. Tempting, just for the TIEs. I’ve been looking into Heroes of the Aturi Cluster, but it sounds like running three rebels ships would be better than two, which means I need two more basic TIEs (I’m happy to treat FO and regular TIEs interchangeably).

I've got an original and 2 TFA cores. At the end of the day, you get three ships for far less than they'd cost other side. Not to mention the extra dice, guides, markers, and other goodies. I'm not getting a THIRD TFA set, but I think for those trying to build some quick options for larger groups, or just get some more of the parts to make their games go faster, this is a cost effective way to go about it. Much nicer than always having to pass all the different guides and dice around imo. I may just be spoiled, but it does genuinely make the game go faster.
