Same here in France, I have been unable to get packs of Imperial or Rebel fighters (the first edition, with classic fighters) for the past year. I guess that either the gamer support is not enough to sustain new production, or FFG is waiting for the release of the Super Star Destroyer to get momentum.

I've also heard rumours about a second Edition, similarly to what happens with X-Wing, so maybe that could explain the lack of availability.
Greetings Darkmatt, over here in the UK availabllity isn't too bad, especially at gaming shops, but the price is very high

A lot of stores are putting the version 1 X-wing miniatures on sale. I got the TIE Silencer for $18 today, as well as a few others. Sadly, looks like I missed Sabine's TIE, which is now going for ~$30 on the 'bay. I'd suggest buying any your want before they are gone. I doubt FFG will reissue a lot of the older ones, especially the more obscure craft.

Not the best pic, but I snapped a photo of my TIE Silencer now perching on a Titanium stand.

Good advice, Unreality. :) I have waited too long on one or two in the past and regreted it, so now I just swiftly on FFG stuff.

That Silencer is beautiful. I wish it was a tad smaller as it's a little bit too big for my collection.

Hoping for some more reveals for Armada in the near future. Apart from the massive Executor they haven't announed in any new releases in at least a year, now.

Got this one yesterday, Kylo's Shuttle. It's big, but looks great. Wings are very fragile. Also, I included the TIE Silencer. I think it's actually a great size for Titanium collectors. I wish there was a MM version though.

That shuttle is among the best ones made, mainly due to the fully movable wings, a feature not available on other miniature replicas of this ship.

So far FFG has focused on the Rebellion, First Order, and now Clone Wars, time periods as settings. They have not yet ventured into the Old Republic era.
New canon shows the Ebon Hawk's design is now a contemporary ship in the classic Imperial era. I'm holding out hope that they will remember this and do a fabulous Dynamic class freighter in this line. The (really) Old Republic stuff is likely off limits as they'd need to produce lots of ancient ships all at once in order to have a proper game, assuming their license even allows them to touch it. Not that many of us care of course since we're generally more interested in the models, and KotOR fans would be happy to have OR era models.

Love that they are doing the Resistance transport. I really like that vehicle. I also love the colors on the new B-wing. I hope the s-foils work on it.

Amazing wave.

I read through the details over at FFG and yep, the wings swing on the B-Wing. Additionally, the cockpit rotates and the entire ship pivots on its stand. :D

The TIE Silencer is a brand new sculpt. I'll be interested to see what's different. It is coming in a much smaller package this time round than its V1 release, which makes me wonder if the ship itself isn't perhaps a bit smaller in this new release?

The Resistance Transport comes with the ability to separate so that the cockpit can serve as a travel pod, as seen in The Last Jedi. I'll take two for display purposes! :D

Loving the Hyena Bomber. It's so great to see a miniature of this cool Clone Wars era TIE Bomber analog. :D

The Naboo N-1 looks like it should be the best model of the ship in this size range.

Thanks Strone. Yeah, that TIE Silencer looks a lot more accurate this time around.

Rodders, they don't mention any changes to the mold. Maybe a slight paint difference, like a lighter base grey/white color.

This wave is awesome. I'm hopeful the next one might look something like this ...

Clone Wars era Y-Wing Starfighter-bomber
Z-95A Headhunter Starfighter
B-Wing Prototype Heavy Starfighter
Phoenix Squadron variant A-Wing Starfighter
New Republic T-85 X-Wing Starfighter
TIE/rb 'Mauler' Heavy Starfighter

Great list. I'd love a miniature of the TIE/rb. I'm surprised no one has made a toy or model of that one.

Heads up, Kylo Ren's Upsilon-class shuttle is $6.43 on Amazon US right now.

Also, some good prices on Quadjumper, Punishing One, and Armada ships: Interdictor and Nebulon-B

Happy hunting!

Cheers for the update, Solo!

Wondering why the little Sheathipede shuttle is flying with Ghost, though. Did the Phantom get toasted? o-o

Agreed on all points! It ain't right that we don't have a TIE/rb. Hope it doesn't go into the MIA file, along with the H-Type Naboo yacht and the other ships that no one ever did.

Yusss! Got my wish with that CW era Y-Wing. :)
Noice one! If it's Titanium-sized, it's a must-have for me, too. :)

Reading the Fantasy Flight page says the Phantom II can actually dock with the Ghost. And I like the brighter color scheme.

SPOILER from REBELS :




Yes, the first Phantom Shuttle got destroyed (I don't remember in which season though). It then got replaced by the Phantom II which was the Sheathipede design.

Here's a video from Celebration Chicago showing some of the new FFG minis. Cool to see how much of the B-Wing is poseable, how the Resistance Transport can separate to create a Travel Pod, and how some of the newest miniatures scale withe the rest of the collection. The new version of Kylo's TIE looks much better scaled that the previous sculpt.

While the identities of the new ships were not revealed at Celebration, FFG's representatives confirmed two new large ships for Armada to be released (hopefully) later this year. These will be for the Rebel and Imperial factions, but they also announced that Armada will be expanding to fold in the Clone Wars era as well, which means we can expect Republic and CIS ships as well. :D That Venator SD that many people have been asking for is sure to be the first Republic ship, right? Exciting things are coming for capital ship fans! :)

Tie Striker

1st version (right) vs 2nd Version (left)

2nd version has more vibrant colors.
Both Versions have movable wings... but 2nd version's wings tend to stay in place :)

Thank you so much for the pics. I've been debating ordering a few of these. 2nd edition seems more expensive, but they look better. FFG didn't overdo the dark wash.

Really want to get that Sith Infiltrator.
