Can any of you more technical BGGers out there comment on this please? It seems to me that the Slave 1 model is way out of scale. Shouldn't it be much smaller than the Millennium Falcon yet bigger than the fighters?

Don't get me wrong, the model is great; it's just that for a miniatures game accurate scale comparisons are important to me.

I don't know, I haven't watched the movies in a long time...the model just seems too big, bigger than I remember.

It would be a shame if Fantasy Flight overlooked this. Anybody?

Upshot is- it's about the right size

Thanks Chris.

Nice to know I wasn't the only one thinking it. I'm glad that Fantasy Flight got it right.

Maybe what throws you off is the size of the Slave's canopy? I think any sci-fi enthusiast sees black canopy on many sci-fi ships as "pilot-sized" since maybe that is true for the majority of ships across genres.

I think the Slave has a transparent cabin/canopy section that may equate to a storey or more of a large building (scale nuts please jump in with facts but don't dogpile me for being off). Lining up Slave with the Falcon, canopy to canopy, I can see how scale may look off, if one assumes your eye tries to make the canopy size common as it rationalizes both cockpits.

Just a thought.

In any event, enjoy the game... Slave 1 is awesome fun.

Best,

Yeti

Just from the scene where they load Han onto it, it seems like it should be smaller, but I guess scale varies quite a bit when people are in the shot.

Depending on how far back you go, if you had the 1980s Kenner toy, you'd expect it to be smaller, but the toy was apparently out of scale.

Now if the Firespray is a transport for convicts / prisoners, looking at the detailed pic I wonder where they fit in the ship :/
Did I miss something?

I like the picture, wonder if you would mail it to me.

Tried copying, but that doesn't work.


Some questions, what's the difference between firespray and slave?
it one the type of ship and the other the name?

Also, in the movie Oby Wan follows this ship and I wonder what type ship he is flying.

For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

Slave One is Boba Fett's personal, customized Firespray.

So it is as I expected, Slave is the name Firespray is the type.

I wonder why they went with the neutral color sceme rather than with the red green which is the actual slave.

Or am I looking at a set which gives you a neutral firespray, and is there a different one which gives you the slave 1?

Thanks,


Delta-7 Aethersprite-class light interceptor

You know for quite some time I was under the impression this to be a modified A wing.
So why is it not available in the game?

It's not a modified A-Wing. It's a distant precursor to the A-Wing.
