Does anyone know when Booster #91 might be available to order from ADB (I thought I read that it was for sale at Origins)? Thanks,

Garrett

Well, it was, indeed, on sale at Origins. Jean quite politely upsold me on the Booster and the corresponding Squadron Box (plastics! Yea!!).

Jean mentioned in her post-Origins blog that Booster #91 sold out at Origins. I don't know how much of their stock they brought and how much, if any, remains in TX for sale online...

IIRC Origins releases are opened to distributors the week after the Convention --- about a week later are put up for phone/net sales ---

We made 1,000 copies of Booster 91. We sold 23, and gave 3 away. Do the math.

I am not sure, myself, if Leanna is taking mail orders yet. Ask her!

Is it mail order only, or will it be going out to the shops?

It will be shipped to the trade, but probably not for a few weeks.

The problem is that the cover has to be printed with other covers which are not done, and could not be ready in time to ship with CL#39.

This creates the problem that Booster #91 and Squadron Box #91 are not enough for a "release date" so both will have to wait until another product is ready. That could be PDK20M (the "modern" version of d20 Klingons) or it could be Hydran Attack or maybe something else. That could be anytime between late July and mid-September.

Could we see a preview of the cover art for Booster 91, if it wasn't too much trouble to ask?

Does the Scout follow the scout rules? And what of the tug? Are they considered FC or BoM?

The Scout has special sensor boxes. That means they are either free hits or use the special sensor rules.

Considering that Booster 94 will contain LTTs and 95 will contain everyone else's tugs, I would assume that the Tug is normal FC.

Bummer about the timing. I'm definitely going to wait until it ships with the cover - I can't wait to see what Adam does with the classic FJS ships.
