Raddus and the MC75? Meh, whatever.

***however***

GRAND ADMIRAL THRAWN?!?

I don't care that I already have an ISD, I'm plunking down $50 ASAP for that thing.

Yeah, I thought I was going to declare my collection finished...but there is no way I won't get Thrawn.

Then I'm done, I mean it!

I'm still lagging on the more recent waves. I'd really like to have them but I don't play enough to justify it and the game takes up a lot of storage space. Still... also, Thrawn is the perfect way to get a second ISD which is great, I only have one.

Man, why did I buy two ISD's... I should know better by now. I was dumb enough to think that they wouldn't do repaints for Armada. Dumb. Well, I know to buy one or two less of everything now.

I have no idea who Admiral Thrawn is but that's one prettily painted Star Destroyer.

Thinking of just blowing 100 birthday dollars on Armada to get up to speed with new releases...

I'm very behind on my reviews, but I've got one of wave V and VI due at the top of the pile, so I ought to get on and write it.

It is very useful to know we might see repaints of the big ships that I want a second of, I may just wait on some of those. I do feel bad for people who already bought like a second one of big stuff, though they have telegraphed this approach with X-wing.

They surely did. Oh, well. My birthday is coming next month so I'm going to do some catching up.

Matt, I think Thrawn is from one of those SW novels. Barnes is more steeped in the lore, he should know.

Years ago my dad bought me some SW audiobook which I never listened to because I thought it would be dumb. I think that's the series with Thrawn in it. Of course, now that I hear that it's decent and my dad is gone I really want to hear it but I don't own a fucking working tape deck any more. Sigh.

Thrawn is going to be in the upcoming movie, but he was introduced by the highly thought of Thrawn Timothy Zahn novels a billion years ago.

130 dollars catches me up to Thrawn release (I missed several waves). That's birthday money with the GC I have sitting around.

Hmmm.

btw, anyone tried the Hammerheads in anger in Armada? They look super cool.

Yeah, Thrawn was the main baddie in the Timothy Zahn books, which were kind of the first serious attempt at the EU. It was a trilogy of books that were intended as a sequel to the original films. He was sort of the leader of the remnants of the Empire after Jedi. Cool character, one of the EU's best. He also turned up in Rebels.
