Like many my age I was part of the Star Wars generation growing up and it is still one of my favorite film series. Last fall when I returned from overseas a friend suggested I try X-wing out and sign up for the Kessel Run Tournament since it is "a lot like Wings of Glory, but different". So I did and I have been hooked ever since. In fact, I placed second in the local Kessel Run tournament and won the Slave1.
Anyway, on to the subject of this post, X-wing Wave 3. This has been long awaited and finally hit the shelves at GenCon for limited purchase. I did not attend GenCon but heard it was for sale, so on a lark I messaged a friend who was attending to see if he could get me a set. I was stunned when he replied back last Sunday that he had them in hand and would mail them this week. They arrived last night and I was able to open them up and take a first look.

Anyway without dragging this out to long I took some pics of the cards and maneuver dial for each ship, so others can get a feel for what is coming. I know this is available in bits and pieces elsewhere, but figured it would be nice to have in one place for those that have not seen the ships yet.
I apologize in advance that the pics are not better, but you can get the general idea.
