Well, if you take that point of view, I guess you're right. The choices are a bit 'safe' but I'm pretty sure they will branch out in future waves and release more varied expansion packs.

I think releasing Leia, Lando, Bossk etc would have been safer and would have sold more than a Wookiee 2-pack.

On the other hand: from a commercial point of view I understand that releasing all the characters everyone wants in a short time isn't clever.

I did the math recently in a bunch of FFG games. At that point IA was going to cost about US$330 to buy all of it. Sounds like a lot until you see the 1st editions of A Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings card games come in at US$1300 and US$1020 respectively and we're on thd Aussie dollar which has nose dived over the past year :(. I had been looking forward to picking up two or three of these games but I think we can only afford one and even then, not the whoe thing :(

I'm about £150 in to xwing. I don't like to think about how much it is going to cost me to buy all the ships that are on my current wish list and they keep releasing more. And I haven't even started on imperial assault yet!

On a related note, I really don't like ffg's habit of announcing new waves before the current wave is even available to buy yet.

Agreed.
There are currently 12 (!) ally/villain packs and 2 expansion sets announced......which is more than the stuff that's curently available (core game and 7 ally/villain packs)

And yes: this game costs a fortune...but I've said it before: I want everything.
I have collected a lot of various stuff over the years, but (since there's a LOT coming out these days) I've decided a while ago to focus and collect just 3 things: Imperial Assault, Star Wars books (non-fiction, Marvel TPB's and some fiction) and Star Wars Lego (except the prequel sets).
Choices, choices.....

To put it in Star Wars terms:
Leia: The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin Dennis, the more star systems merchandise will slip through your fingers.
Me: Yeah, but I'll still have a lot to read and play with.

I am a huge Star Wars fan and this looks like a good game but I am about $150 into Xwing and I was let down the first time I played it. Now, Star Wars Armada is the thing to get into here. Seen some guys play at the last convention a week ago and I got to say, I aint into it. Don't know if HeroQuest ruined me for other dungeon crawlers or what, but I think I will stick to HQ. Even thinking about selling my Xwing stuff just to get more HQ.

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you can win a hundred battles without a single loss.
If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose.
If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself.
