Wave 7 got leaked early so we have a preview article already;
https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2020/1/8/attack-on-all-fronts/










No new yet on rereleases but the points change is due on Thursday at 1300 (US Central time). Can see why they have chosen all these ships and they do look pretty decent, the Xi is badly needed for FO but would have prefered to get the ETA2 and Tri Fighter for Republic and CIS.

The LAAT seems like a slightly odd choice for Republic given that it's so similar in both function and style to the ARC. Loving the Xi as FO really need a cheap support platform to help increase their list building options. Looks like we have a new token with the Xi as well. That's a little annoying. I'm kind of hoping FFG slow down on the new tokens for a while - some play areas are getting almost comically overloaded with crap in my recent games.

People have beeen asking for (or just anticipating) the LAAT on the FFG forums when new ships get mentioned.
It is a lot like the ARC, but is better crew, I expect.
I'll be grabbing one, most likely.

LAAT is a turret as well as dual missile slots so should fly a little different to the ARC.

There are also a couple of new tokens here, the strange missile shaped ones and "Deplete" which is like "Strain" but for the attack rather defence.

New info (robbed from FFG's forum).

First off Aces packs are making a come back (probably to replace reprints).
Spoiled: Resistance aces pack will be the first pack and it will have a bright orange x-wing
"Familiar ships with new paint jobs"
More thematic to time period or event, or media that comes out (hence the Resistance pack with an orange X-wing being first)
Rebel cells, imperial battle groups, etc
"Hefty on upgrades"
Good for starting a new faction or getting into the game
They are revisiting iconic pilots at different stages of their lives
New subtitle, new ability, potentially new initiative

And some spoiled cards;

Both the remaining articles for the wave are up.
HMP - https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2020/9/9/rule-skies/
Spoiler:









https://images-cdn.fantasyflightgames.com/filer_public/00/c6/00c65f3f-e738-4a5d-80a8-6b3aef6e8074/swz71_upgrade_concussion-bomb.png[/img]


LAAT - https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2020/9/2/concentrate-your-fire/
Spoiler:












Both look pretty good and will add something unique to their factions. Some cool new toys for everyone as well. The concussion bomb had better be really expensive as else that is going to be brokenly good.

Edit - Also worth noting that these are available to buy right now in certain territories and with shops that break releases dates!

Wondering if the LAAT will be better than Sinker Swarm.

Also got 2 HMPs on order, so I'm hoping I can make a good list with two of them and 3 hyenas.
