Appreciate you writing everything down for us!

The Millennium Falcon SPOILED video over on FFG has some insights, like the 360-degree arc of fire for the lasers.

You can see it here:

Here are the notes I could find on the boost cards:


This card explains the rules for performing a BOOST action. Ships with the boost Icon in their action bar may perform a boost action. To boost, follow these steps:

1. Chose the * (1 forward) (1 left 45*) or (1 right 45*) maneuver template

2. Set the maneuver template between the ships front guides.

3. Move the ship to the opposite end template and slide the rear guides of the ship into the template.

Performing a Boost does not count as executing a maneuver. A ship can not boost if this would causes it's base to overlap with another ship's base or an obstacle token.

Here are the notes on the Pilots from the video

Han Solo 9/3/8/1/5 points: 46 points (confirmed)
When attacking you may reroll all your dice. If you choose to do so you must reroll as many of your dice as possible.

Lando Callrissian 7/3/8/1/5 44 points
After you execute a green maneuver, choose one friendly ship at range one. That ship may perform one free action shown on it's action bar.

Chewbacca 5/3/8/1/5 42 points
When you are dealt a face up damage card immediately flip it face down (without resolving it's ability).

Outer Rim Smuggler 1/2/1/6/4 27 points
Know for it's durability and modular design the YT-1300 is one of the most popular, widely used freighters in the Galaxy

Well, it does come with a flight base, and pilot cards, so is a DEAL if you ask me…….

[you do get the heavy, dripping sarcasm, right?]

Well if it was 5% of the amount with the four other cards I might have jumped on it. BUT $95.00 USD for an upgrade card on Missiles? Total for the divided up package which lists for $29.95 USD is $1,230.00 USD! I know things are more expensive for our Canadian fellow wargamers but a 410% mark up?

The kicker is that the guy who's selling it bought it on eBay for $250. USD Then he took it out of the package and split it up into lots. He's actually trying to sell it for $1,320 USD because one of the $90 USD cards is listed as having two available in the auction.

Find a store running the Kessel run stuff and win one :) I'm running one in Pensacola at Bobe's Hobby House.

All this jealousy over not having it yourself yet, or this guy trying to make the most out of an in-demand game…

Look, either it will sell and SOMEONE or a few people will be happy with their new Falcon & cards, or it won't sell, and the guy will be hit with all kinds of eBay fees for listing something with such a large price and he'll have to adjust the pricing down accordingly to resell.

Foolish for pricing so high or not, demand will make the market Deal with it.

Mako1127 Nov 2012 12:03 a.m. PST

It costs next to nothing to list.

He'll be hit with a nice fat, final sales fee, if it does sell.

vojvoda Inactive Member28 Nov 2012 8:47 a.m. PST

He ended up with four offers but did not sell. Watching for him to list it again.

I don't think it's jealousy.

I'm as pro-capitalism as they come, but this kind of thing is just plain amusing in a sad kind of way.

vojvoda Inactive Member28 Nov 2012 12:18 p.m. PST

I would have gone to $50.00 USD if it was complete with all the cards.

It's hilarious because he paid $250 USD for it himself thinking he could resell it for more. Now since he's taken it out of the package I wonder if he'll even be able to make back the $250 USD he initially paid for it.
