Along with the Conversion kits, several expansions will be released along with dial upgrade kits and dice packs.

The T-65 X-wing Expansion Pack and BTL-A4 Y-wing Expansion Pack for the Rebel Alliance will launch alongside the Core Set, as will the TIE/ln Fighter Expansion Pack and TIE Advanced x1 Expansion Pack for the Galactic Empire, and the Fang Fighter Expansion Pack and Slave I Expansion Pack for Scum and Villainy.

In addition, the previously announced Saw’s Renegades Expansion Pack and TIE Reaper Expansion Pack contain both first edition and second edition content to enable them to be used in both editions. These hybrid products will be released before the launch of X-Wing Second Edition as Wave XIV of the first edition.

All previously released Resistance and First Order ships will be released in their own conversion kits as part of the second wave of expansions as they’ll no longer be sub-factions of the Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire.

The plastic ships from the Aces expansions (Imperial Aces, Rebel Aces, Imperial Veterans, etc.) will not be re-released in the game’s second edition. Some of the cards from these expansions will enter X-Wing Second Edition through the conversion kits, but the alternate painted plastic ships themselves will not be reprinted in the game’s second edition.
