“Lock S-foils in attack position.”
–Red Leader, Star Wars: A New Hope

You’ve sighted a squadron of Imperial TIE fighters, flying in formation and ready for action. It might be foolish to attack them now, but they’re far too close to the Rebel outpost for you to allow them to continue forward. Lock your S-foils in attack position and prepare for the first maneuvers of your dogfight with three X-Wing Maneuver Dial Upgrade Kits, now available at your local United States retailer!

  • Rebel Maneuver Dial Upgrade Kit
  • Imperial Manuever Dial Upgrade Kit
  • Scum Maneuver Dial Upgrade Kit

Fast and Convenient Maneuvering  

Every game of X-Wing pits you against a single opponent controlling squadrons of iconic ships and characters from the Star Wars™ universe. Each turn, you’ll select your ship’s maneuver and attempt to shoot down your opponent’s starships. Now, the Maneuver Dial Upgrade Kits invite you to take another step into the game’s limitless customizability by pairing your ships’ maneuver dials with a stylish and secure plastic housing. 

There are three distinct Maneuver Dial Upgrade Kits available, corresponding to the three X-Wing factions. You may fly with the tyrannical Galactic Empire, fight for freedom with the Rebel Alliance, or make your own way with the galaxy’s Scum and Villainy. No matter which faction you play, you can represent the colors and symbols of your faction prominently with upgrade kits for your maneuver dials. 

Each Maneuver Dial Upgrade Kit offers three sculpted plastic shells for your squadron’s maneuver dials. To use one of these plastic shells, you simply take the cardboard maneuver dial token that shows a ship’s maneuvers and insert it into the plastic housing. Once situated, you can push the plastic maneuver selection marker into place, and you’re ready to take your ship into any interstellar dogfight with confidence.   

These plastic maneuver dials have been specially designed to ensure the greatest usability. To begin with, each plastic maneuver dials allows you to clearly see all of your possible maneuvers at once. No longer will you have to rotate through your entire dial if you want to see all of your ship’s available maneuvers—you can simply take it all in at a glance.

In addition, each upgraded maneuver dial features a space on the back for you to insert a dial ID token, showing a silhouette of the corresponding ship and clearly distinguishing which dial belongs to which ship. Each Maneuver Dial Upgrade Kit includes three dial ID tokens for every ship in the game, from the T-65 X-wing and TIE Fighter in the original X-Wing Core Set up to the T-70 X-wing and TIE/fo Fighter from The Force Awakens™ Core Set

Beginning with the Ghost Expansion Pack, the Mist Hunter Expansion Pack, the Punishing One Expansion Pack, and the Inquisitor’s TIE Expansion Pack, every X-Wing expansion pack will include a dial ID token for use with these plastic maneuver dials. The standard cardboard maneuver dials will continue to be included in each expansion.
