X-Wing Minatures Game

Woot! We have the new X-Wing miniatures game!

From the manufacturer's website:
Control the most advanced starfighters and outstanding pilots in the galaxy! In X-Wing Miniatures Game, you take the role of squad leader and command a group of merciless Imperial or daring Rebel pilots in furious ship-to-ship space combat. Featuring stunningly detailed and painted miniatures, X-Wing recreates exciting Star Wars space battles from small engagements of only a couple of crafts, to large conflicts where multiple squadrons clash. Select and equip your ships, pick your crew, plan your attack, and complete your mission.
And here's a review from Geekdad:
This is serious fun. Gameplay is easy to learn and moves very quickly. While the box advertises a 2-player game lasting about 20 minutes, there’s nothing to stop you from playing 10 players in a deep space battle that lasts an hour or more. Rounds tick off without a thought and – if you play in the suggested four square feet of play area – you’ll find that there’s no place to run. I have plans of printing out a big star field to play on … and then conquering a galaxy the size of our dining room table.
The core set of X-Wing comes with an x-wing fighter, two TIE fighters, along with both advanced and "quick start" rules. We also have TIE fighter expansion packs with upgraded pilots and tactics.
