Cleave; Double Attack; Draw Fire; Momentum

We get our first dual character to the game, and while he is a cool sculpt and a decent piece, I don't think he is that much better than his Universe counterpart. What would have been nice would have been to have this one come first and Rebel Hero in this set.

Stats for one more point are a bit lower across the board. Against Rebel Hero, this new piece loses 10HP and -1ATK. You also lose bodyguard, Demolish, Gunner, Industrial Repair, and Repair 10. So in losing all of that, what are we gaining for that extra point? You get an extra attack and draw fire. That's it. Now don't get me wrong, the extra offense can really help the Rebels who need to dish damage fast and hard in order to survive, but you lose one of the greatest combos in the game. For only 5 pts more than BH Chewie, you bring in 3PO and use him to draw fire and any shot that would kill 3PO, you let chewie take it. You then use Chewie and R2 to repair any little damage 3PO has taken. It is a very annoying and effective combo. In the end you just lose too much over Rebel Hero to be 1 pt more. As with Luke from Tuesday, I just think they really missed the boat when it came to pricing the figs from this set. Too many good figs are ruined by their huge cost.

100pt: He can be played here, but with 2 of the top 3 squads being Jedi, the other Chewie is the better choice.

150pts: Here there is enough accurate shot and diversity that he can begin to be effective, but the problem is that you really do not want the rebels going toe to toe with any squad. They are better at mobile hit and fades. Trading blows with squads again makes Rebel Hero the better choice.

200pts: Here is the best format for BH Chewie because you can bring in enough diversity to make him work. The best idea for him here is to put him in a squad where you want your opponent shooting at something else like a Viper and you can hide chewie behind it where he can sit and double attack and draw the fire of the accurate shooters. Again I think Rebel Hero is the better choice in almost every circumstance, but this new Chewie is still good enough to use if you like him.

Again? Again!?! Another version of Chewbacca? Am I the only one sick of Chewbaccas? Anyway, it’s a repeat with a few lost and gained abilities.

It has 110 hit points. Not as much as the Rebel Hero, but an extra 10 hit points won’t make much of a difference. Its attack and defense are standards, as is the damage. It has Momentum...standard, as well as cleave.

But, it has a few abilities that the other versions lack. Draw Fire is an okay ability and will help you divert some enemy fire. Double Attack is a first for Chewbacca, which is good, but not really expected from a Chewbacca. This one is obviously for Rebels, unlike the RotS one, but I just wouldn’t play him. I’m sorry but he just doesn’t compare to the Rebel Hero version. This one’s a stable warrior, unlike the RH version, which is a utility/warrior/bodyguard. I wouldn’t play him, unless you don’t have the RH version.

100pt: 2.3 (I’d prefer 4-LOM, BH, for 2 more points)

150pt: 2.5 (better, but not the greatness of the RH version)

200pt: 3 (I was generous here, but his Draw Fire can be used more. But if you have RH, play it over this version.)

Pose: 3.5 (I wanted to see this pose for a while, it’s pretty cool.)

May the Force be with you.
