They did it. They finally did it. Fantasy Llight has breached the Episode VIII barrier. Rey, Finn, Poe, and BB-8 have arrived.
In the Heroes of the Resistance, 2-model expansion pack we are getting a redesigned Millennium Falcon (with real The Force Awakens battle damage!) and a black T-70 X-Wing to fly as Poe Dameron’s Black One.
The pack also comes with a ton of new ship and pilot cards, including a Poe Dameron pilot card (pilot skill 9, putting him with elite fighter pilot, Wedge Antillies), ship cards for Han and Chewbacca, and unique Title upgrades for the Falcon and Black One. Finn debuts as a crew upgrade, Rey has her own pilot card for the Falcon, and BB-8 is an equipable astromech for extra maneuverability.
Fantasy Flight has also already released a re-vamp of their core set: The Force Awakens Core Set. This spiffy new blue version comes with a resistance X-Wing and two First Order TIE Fighters.
Look for these additions to your rebel squad during the third quarter of 2016 at your favorite gaming and hobby shops.
