  • X-Wing™ Expansion Pack
  • TIE Fighter™ Expansion Pack
  • Y-Wing™ Expansion Pack
  • TIE Advanced™ Expansion Pack

And for those who are already liking the game (which is getting very positive reviews), the next ships have been announced!

Millennium Falcon™ Expansion Pack

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!

Slave I™ Expansion Pack

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!

A-Wing™ Expansion Pack

Conceived by General Dodonna, the RZ-1 A-wing interceptor proved its worth by crippling Star Destroyers during the Battle of Endor. Now this highly maneuverable starfighter adds another exciting dimension to Rebel squadrons in the Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game.

The A-Wing Expansion Pack introduces one A-wing miniature with four pilots and five upgrades, as well as the tactically compelling “Boost” action. Only the most talented pilots belong in an A-wing cockpit, and Rebel aces like Tycho Celchu push this sleek starfighter to its limits as they seek to gain every advantage it can give them in the galaxy’s deadliest dogfights!

TIE Interceptor™ Expansion Pack

Imperial players can add a lethal new starfighter to their X-Wing squadrons with the TIE Interceptor Expansion Pack. The finest mass-produced starfighter of its time, the TIE interceptor excels at dogfighting thanks to its heightened maneuverability, increased speed, and four wing-mounted laser cannons that easily allow it to outgun its predecessors.

The TIE interceptor brings more to the table, though, than just its armaments. It features six skullful new pilots, including the renowned Imperial ace, Soontir Fel. The starfighter’s “Boost” action affords tremendous tactical freedom, and the pack’s daredevil pilots can wrench maneuvers of the ship its designers at Sienar Fleet Systems may have never imagined. With its detailed miniature, two upgrades, and new pilots, the TIE Interceptor Expansion Pack creates exciting opportunities for all Imperial players.

The Star Wars: X-Wing Miniatures Game brings the galaxy’s greatest space battles to your tabletop, and they’re only going to get hotter with the game’s second wave of starfighters, each of which has been accurately rendered at the same 1/270 scale as those from the game’s Core Set.

Look for the Millennium Falcon Expansion Pack, Slave I Expansion Pack, A-Wing Expansion Pack, and TIE Interceptor Expansion Pack to arrive at retailers everywhere later in the fourth quarter of 2012!

(Editor’s Note:  I saw all of these ships at GenCon, and WOW.  Some of the best miniatures I’ve ever seen.)
