I really like X-Wing for recreating the star fighter conflicts from the Star Wars universe. It’s a fun game and one that can be played with a few ships or a fair few.
In a previous blog post
I talked about how I used the Keepa service to find price reductions on the X-Wing Starter Set on Amazon.
Using Keepa I have managed to find the starter boxed set on Amazon for just £8.99, the list price is £36.99.
Using the service I was able to find the C-ROC Cruiser for just £16.99 which has a list price of £55.98.
The C-ROC Cruiser Expansion Pack contains one C-ROC Cruiser miniature, one M3-A Interceptor miniature with an alternate paint scheme, seven ship cards, thirty upgrade cards, and all the manoeuvre dials, damage decks, tokens, and game pieces that you need to fly your C-ROC Cruiser and its escort to battle.
C-ROCs first appeared in the Star Wars Rebels episode Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion.
The C-ROC Gozanti-class cruiser was a shipyard custom configuration for the Gozanti-class cruiser, manufactured by the Corellian Engineering Corporation.
Initially offered to the Imperial Navy as an armed long-range transport, the Navy rejected the configuration as inappropriate to the order of battle, instead choosing the Imperial freighter configuration of Gozanti. Despite this setback, the C-ROC became popular with both legitimate cargo operations and criminal operations, becoming especially popular on the Outer Rim due to its combination of hauling capacity, rugged construction, and heavy armament.
So for roughly the price of a M3-A Interceptor miniature, I got that model and the huge C-ROC Cruiser miniature.
At the time of writing the model is £19.95 + £4.62 delivery which is still pretty good discount on the list price.
Of course with Keepa, you can keep track of prices of the C-ROC on Amazon. This is useful if you want to see the history of prices for the miniature. You can then trigger an e-mail alert when the price reaches a particular level.
