So for these future releases of the Millennium Falcon and Slave I, any idea on the pilots they'll include? (besides Han Solo and Boba Fett)
Maybe Lando? Maybe Chewbacca as an upgrade?

I've been wondering the same thing - MF has the benefit of a few canonical pilots, but Slave I - there'll be Boba Fett, and, I dunno... We'll see.

Considering he died before any of the current line up of ships whee even invented I doubt it strongly. Allso, Boba is Jangos clone, so they'd be pretty much identical any way

I wonder if we'll be able to use two pilots at the same time for the Millennium Falcon. Han and Chewie with two shots per attack?

That made me laugh hard. "Legacy it in half" is brilliant. I'm going to add that to my BGG-speak.

From the Slave I promo shot, there's "Gunner" upgrade with a mean-looking Wookiee. It doesn't look like Chewie to me, but he might serve the same role on the Falcon. I think it'd be cool if there were a different character image on each Gunner card, even if their function is identical.

Slave 1 was also piloted by Gjon and Aura Sing at different points in its history.

Isn't the Slave I a Skipray blastboat? (goes to Wookieepedia) Hmmm, close, it's a Firespray 31-class patrol ship... so I'll bet that it'll include pilot stats for a "generic" Firespray 31, not just the Slave I. Same way that the TIE advanced has pilots other than Vader.

My prediction:

YT-1300:
Han (Falcon)[9]
Lando (Falcon)[7]
Generic YT-1300 / Named YT-1300 [5]
Generic YT-1300 [1]

Chewbacca, Nien Numb, and generic co-pilot/gunner as upgrade options


Firespray:
Boba Fett (Slave 1) [9]
Jango Fett (Slave 1) [7]
Generic Firespray / Named Firespray [5]
Generic Firespray [1]


I wonder if the YT-1300 and Firespray will have different icons for Co-Pilot/Gunner upgrades. If not, I wonder if there will be any way of preventing Boba Fett from having Chewbacca/Numb as a Co-Pilot/Gunner?

Quoting Fantasy Flight:

"Fly the legendary Millennium Falcon into fast-paced battles for the fate of the galaxy! The Millennium Falcon Expansion Pack for the Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game allows players to blast through hyperspace with Han, Chewie, Lando, Nien Nunb, and more.

The Millennium Falcon isn’t just any YT-1300. It is easily one of the most iconic and recognizable starships of all time, and it comes with four pilot cards, fourteen upgrades, and all requisite tokens. New rules expand the X-Wing galaxy to include unique starfighters, ships with larger bases, turret weapons, faction specific upgrades, and special modifications. With its new rules, pilots, and lovingly detailed miniature, the Millennium Falcon Expansion Pack is a beautiful addition to the X-Wing game!"

They are less generous with info on Slave:

"Originally intended as a prisoner transport, the Firespray-31 gained notoriety through association with some of the galaxy’s most fearsome pirates and bounty hunters, including the infamous Boba Fett. Just like Fett, the Slave I Expansion Pack for X-Wing is full of deadly surprises.

The Slave I Expansion Pack allows players to take advantage of the Firespray’s versatile armament and heavy armor plating, as well as a host of lethal new upgrades. Imperial players can choose to arm this starfighter with a range of missiles, ion cannons, heavy laser cannons, and bombs. Slave I comes with a detailed miniature, four pilot cards, thirteen upgrades, and all requisite tokens. New rules and a new mission further expand your games of X-Wing!"

After hearing about the pilots, I'm more excited about getting the falcon. I'm iffy on the Slave I. it's not quite as theme related since it never really fought against the rebels and wasn't really an imperial ship.

Nowhere even close. The two ships are completely different.

I could see other bounty hunters. There was a time when Fett worked with Zuckuss(the Bounty Hunter trilogy books), so I could see maybe 4LOM or Zuckuss as side kick co-pilots/gunners.

I do like the look of the slave better... Though, I will end up with both, no question.

I do like that they mention extra missions with the slave. Will definitely be happy with more of those.
