Just seen a few copies of the X-wing partwork in WHSmith, has it gone live?

It’s a regional launch as the product has greatly changed and has more features since it’s intial market test over a year ago. It’s identical to the X-wing released in the USA and Germany.

So subscribing now would mean we'd only get the initial 4 parts?

Ok, at least we can check out the difference between old and new.
Thanks for clearing that up Tomick

It’s a market re-test as the product has greatly changed and has more features since it’s intial market test over a year ago. It’s identical to the X-wing released in the USA and Germany.

Why a market re-test, it has been released in two markets. Why not just go for a full release?

It’s not as simple as that and is a commercial decision country by country.

If the X-Wing does receive a full release in Britain, will the parts in the first four issues of the full release be identical to the parts in issues 1-4 of the re-test? I'd just like to know I can buy the first four issues safe in the knowledge that I can subscribe from issue 5 if the full release goes ahead.


I wouldn't worry about that too much, Deagostini normally sends them out for free if you subscribe, and when it goes live, as a thank you for subscribing to the test, they will normally send you the first few issues for free.

C/S will notify Subscribers if the collection will have a full release., They will also let you know what you need to do in order to continue your collection from Issue 5.

My question was more in regards to buying test issues 1-4 in the shops. I've already bought a copy of issue 1 in WHSmith last week.



I would still subscribe, safest way, and it won't cost anything

I signed up for the second time to the premium subscription but I've received nothing yet. I called DeAgo and they said they had a distribution issue. Horse crap.... As usual DeAgo are not fulfilling their subscriptions.

Can I ask an admin question? Would DeAgo be able to label the small screws packs with the sizes to make it easier to know which screw to use? Other part builds including the Dalorian label the screw packs.

The screws that are provided within each pack are labelled in separate bags with "XW" and then a number to identify them.
