Luke Skywalker of Dagobah
Cost: 28
HP: 60
DEF: 17
ATK: +9
DAM: 20

Double Attack

Force 3
Blaster Barrage; Lightsaber Sweep

I don't know what the designers of this game have against Luke, but they just can't make a very good Luke. This one in my opinion is the WORST of the bunch. He is WAY over costed and not only is he under abilitied, but his abilities are totally redundant.

So lets compare him to the two best fighting Lukes (JK/YJ) His cost is 1pt/7 pts more than theirs. His HP is 30/20 lower. The Defense is a point lower than both, and the attack is -1/0 pts lower. So far the stats are HORRID for a fig that is more expensive than both counterparts.

Ability-wise all three have double attack and are followers. Dagobah Luke picks up one plus here in that he is ranged where the others are melee. Actually, Dagobah Luke's stats are almost identical to Tauntaun Luke's but even he is a whopping 12 pts cheaper!

For force stats he has the typical Luke 3 force points, but where YJ has deflect and some nice die roll cheats and JK Luke has sweep and leap, we get blaster barrage and sweep. Barrage is going to stink 9/10 time as you wont get more than two targets to be legal at once, and since Luke already has double attack, what's the point? Sweep is good, and i would prefer it over barrage, but since they do the same things why put them together to make this the most worthless overcosted piece in the game (yes even over Grievous JH). Where is the twin attack or the intuition or something that would make him playable!

100/150/200: Forget it. He can be played in all three, but in the end he is just crap. Every other version is not only cheaper but better than this one. The melee characters have better force powers and the shooters are just so much cheaper with better gadgets than Dagobah Luke that he just isn't worth anything.

WavesBlade Luke Skywalker of Dagobah (BH#8 Rare)
Cost: 28
HP: 60
DEF: 17
ATK: +9
DAM: 20

Double Attack

Force 3
Blaster Barrage: Attack every legal target once.

Lightsaber Sweep: Atk Every Adjacent Enemy.

Well....... It's Not exactly the magical Luke most people have been waiting for, but o well...

The Good: Not much, Blaster Barrage could be good if you like going against alot little figures, i supose moving and possibly Double/Trip/watever is good. Most 28/less point figs are better...

The bad: Low health, low def, low atk usuall dmg. I have to agree, The other luke's are better overall. This luke would lose one on one to any of the other lukes IMO. There's only so far you can run before they catch up. A Jango, BH and such would be wasting an turn just to kill him, HECK an octupattara droid could beat this luke if it won inititives.....

My opinion's: I never play rebel's to begin with, and I would most likly not use him if i did. Bad piece.

Rateing

100: 1/5 LOL dont waste your time.
150: 1/5 Read above.
200: 2/5 With appropriate support he could survive a few inititives.... then die.
Scuplt: 5/5 Coolest looking luke yet! IMO.
