I threw one of the millennium plastic ones I got and it flew pretty much exactly like the Barsby 1.9 scorpius I’ve been bagging for a month or so. Not a noticeable difference to me.

Did you ever mike yours? Curious to see if yours are the same. Be nice if someone with a 'F' would mike theirs as well.

One of the four I received is penned "SSRF". The other three are penned "SSRP". Two are clearly just another Scorpius while the other two are clearly Falcons based on the rim shape.

That's why this whole situation is unfortunate and requires much more than a Facebook post. They shipped Scorps instead of Falcons but, based on that post, aren't admitting it. If there were several trial and error runs to get this new mold then those needed to be set aside, not shipped to consumers as if they were the new mold.

Left is scorpius, right is falcon. This from the same Facebook thread. None of the ones I got look like the one on the right.

I received two that look like the right and two that don't look like either of those, from what I can remember.

I got around to measuring mine with cheap calipers today. Good news. My Falcon is slightly wider than my Star Destroyers. Another positive: I threw mine on a slightly into the wind hole that I've played over and over. I threw it as long as anything else I've thrown this year there.

I can't wait to break this one in, and will be buying more.

Star Destroyer
Millennium Falcon

Gateway already has the Sabre... just need one in blizz type plastic: Lite Sabre.

We just need a mold called Fighter (obviously with an X-Wing).

... almost forgot the Force.

What other feasibly potential discs would we have in a Star Wars themed bag?
