Finish What You Start

Announcing Two New X-Wing™ Starship Expansions

“Show me again, the power of the darkness, and I will let nothing stand in our way. Show me, Grandfather, and I will finish what you started.”
     –Kylo Ren

This December, The Last Jedi will explode onto movie screens everywhere, delivering a new chapter in the epic Star Wars saga.

As the First Order and Resistance continue their battle for the fate of the galaxy, we’ll follow the struggles of such familiar characters as Rey, Finn, Poe, Luke, Leia, and Kylo Ren.

At the same time, we’ll also meet new characters and discover new vehicles and starships. We’ll learn what role the B/SF-17 heavy bomber plays in the Resistance’s war effort, and we’ll find Kylo Ren behind the controls of his sleek and menacing TIE silencer.

Then, shortly after you see the movie, you’ll be able to field these ships—and a new version of Kylo Ren—in your games of X-Wing.

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce that the Resistance Bomber Expansion Pack and TIE Silencer Expansion Pack are scheduled for release as X-Wing Wave XIII!

Resistance Bomber Expansion Pack

Strategic ordnance platforms flown by brave Resistance pilots, B/SF-17 heavy bombers are packed with destructive ordnance to strike at the First Order. Protected by their rotating turrets, wings of these bombers deter enemy forces with mines and bomb key targets, potentially turning the tide of battle.

In X-Wing, the Resistance bomber arrives as a towering, large-base ordnance platform with room for one systems upgrade, one tech upgrade, and two bombs.

On top of these, the ship boasts three shields and a staggering nine hull, making it durable enough to drop—or launch—the bombs from its Ordnance Silos wherever they’re needed most.

As you might expect, the Resistance Bomber Expansion Pack pairs its pre-painted miniature bomber with a host of potential pilots and upgrades. You’ll find no fewer than four ship cards and thirteen upgrades, including three copies of the Trajectory Simulator.

These are accompanied by a new condition card, a rulesheet, a maneuver dial, and all the plastic and tokens that you need to start bombarding the First Order’s ships and emplacements!

TIE Silencer Expansion Pack

While the Resistance comes out of Wave XIII with plenty of firepower to assault the First Order’s larger ships and stations, the First Order goes into the wave looking to establish absolute space superiority.

The result is the TIE silencer.

Engineered for speed and incredible handling, the TIE silencer is devastating in the hands of those who can unlock its full potential. Lesser pilots, however, are often overwhelmed and unable to maintain control of the nimble craft.

Fortunately for the First Order, they can boast a number of talented pilots, including the dark side Force user Kylo Ren.

In X-Wing, Kylo Ren and his TIE silencer blast into battle with a resounding ferocity. Thanks to the skills passed down from his father, Kylo Ren is an expert pilot, able to take full advantage of the fighter’s innate agility, potent lasers, and upgraded systems.

In addition to Kylo Ren and its pre-painted miniature starfighter, the TIE Silencer Expansion Pack comes with one more unique pilot, two non-unique pilots, twelve upgrades, and a copy of Kylo’s signature condition card, I’ll Show You the Dark Side.  You’ll also find a maneuver dial, a rulesheet, and all the plastic and tokens you need to launch this lethal fighter into action.

Let Nothing Stand in Your Way

When the fate of the galaxy is at stake, you must pursue your victory every way you can. Arm your fleet with the biggest bombs. Fly the fastest fighter. Let nothing stand in your way.

Take control of the Star Wars galaxy’s newest starships and wage your own battles between the First Order and the Resistance.

The Resistance Bomber Expansion Pack and TIE Silencer Expansion Pack are scheduled to arrive at retailers early in 2018. Head to your local retailer to pre-order yours today, or pre-order yours from our webstore!
