CE: followers with 6 squares that have stealth gain evade.

This is one of the best new pieces in the game. But how can this little guy be as good as Vader and the Fetts? Simple he has more to offer the team than the others do. This little guy not only dwarfs his rodian cousin, but will alter the game more than any piece since thrawn.

Stat wise he is better than his rodian partner. He costs 4 pts less, +1 ATK, and +1 DEF. With his advantageous and micro you Can get him up to a +14 twin attacker for 20 DAM! Although he does not have mobile, evade is better because once you run out of cover, mobile does you no good, where evade will continue to work. And all this only costs you 20 pts.

While that is good within itself, its his CE that will be huge! Stealth followers will now have evade. This is everything from Saesee and Shaak, to Commandos, to Biker scouts, to a myriad of other characters form this set that have stealth. Evade is huge becuase it is a forceless deflect and can really extend the life of a character.

100pts: This is not the format for commanders. This is the realm of the beat sticks and with the 100pt game dominated by Jedi, this Matrix wanna-be doesn't fit in.

200pts: Here i think we are going to see a LOT of this guy for people that like stealth. It makes Saesee and Shaak harder to hit as the can force reroll their evades (3 attempts if ran with CS Yoda). Commandos can now survive an early Bacara loss. As well as many other options. In 200pts i REALLY like this guy.

Wow, looks like Neo has it all. I mean, some pieces will look cool or have sweet stats, but this thing has both! Truth to tell, I'm diggin' the trench coat. ^_^

Okay, for stats he is pretty nice being non-unique. 50 HP is... meh, but his DEF and ATK goes above standards for a 20 PT piece. DMG of 10 isn't too cool, but its a good thing he has Advantageous Attack (I think I spelled it right). As for effects, nothing bad about him whatsoever. Evade and Stealth, as well as Mobile Attack will make him nearly invulnerable to shooters, Twin Attack and Advantagous Attack helps deal the damage, and Micro-Vision helps when the enemy gets too close.

Also, just to put a cherry on top of this sweet piece (although I don't suggest eating the piece), his Commander Effect gives Evade to Stealthy characters. Although that sounds cool, Nom already does that. Nonetheless, he'd be good for the commandos just in case they leave cover, or if you don't want to run Yuuzhan Vong altogether. Nonetheless, for a non-unique, he's nice!

In 100 PT, he'd do okay, but in a Bane and Vader enviroment, stick with something else. In 200 PT, good with a squad of stealthy characters. Love the matrix coat, too.

In 100 PT: 2.5/5
In 200 PT: 3.2/5

Okay, let’s just assume that we’ve all made the obligatory Matrix joke about the Bith Black Sun Vigo and move on. The BBSV, as he’ll be known by brevity-conscious players, is a fantastic piece who was recruited by Morpheus to be the Chosen One and deliver humanity from the clutches of the machines – dammit!
With Mobile Attack, Stealth, Evade, and a healthy Defense of 19 with 50 hit points, he’s probably the hardest 20 points your opponent will ever have to kill, especially since he’ll rise from the dead when Trinity declares her love for him – crap!

Advantageous Attack and Twin Attack mean he can actually put 40 points of damage on an unactivated target, despite his humble Damage rating of 10, and Micro-Vision helps him punish enemy Agents that try to get past his Stealth by taking over the code of other imprisoned humans nearby. Sorry; let me get a grip here. I can finish this.

As if all that wasn’t worth your 20 points, he is a Vigo after all, meaning a high-ranking member of the Black Sun criminal syndicate, and naturally has a crime-friendly Commander Effect. In this case, he helps his fellow Stealth units by granting them Evade and eventually dying in a transparent Biblical allegory.

Overall rating in 100: 4
Overall rating in 200: 4.5
Overall rating for the first movie: 4
Overall rating for the sequels: 2

The Bith Black Sun Vigo is a great piece and more...
and Black Sun squads will definatly see lots of love for him. Let's take a look, shall we?

The starts aren't competely horrible for a 20 costed figure. 50 hitpoints, while on the low side, does have that extra 10 that will help greatly. Furthermore, 19 defense isn't bad in a long-shot, and neither is +9 attack with that 20 damage.

Advantegeous Attack is a good ability. +10 damage to make him a good 30 damage character is always a nice thing to have. All you need to do is have him activate first, and have him shoot. A pretty nice deal, in my opinion. Additionally, thanks to Micro-Vision, he gets an additional +4 attack to units that are within 6 squares making him a +13 attacker for 30 damage TWIN ATTACKER (which, as much as I have playtested, a superier ability.) potentially. Combined with Mobile Attack, this means that he can shoot at someone for that extra +4 and then bolt out of there quickly. He also as Stealth, which is a good thing with Mobile Attack... and EVADE. You saw it first from Han's review yesterday, and this ability turns this guy's 50 hitpoints to MUCH harder to kill.

To make things worse for your opponent, he also has a commander effect that grants followers witih Stealth Evade as well. Besides being good in a Black Sun Xizor army, this CE also makes sweet sweet love with the Republic. Combine these with Mas Ammedda and Republic Commanders (probally Sev, as he is my favorite =P), and you got yourself one heck of an army. Believe me, those Commandos do need Evade with thier 30 hitpoints.
This is one of the better 20 points or less commander effects, for sure.

100 points: 2.5/5 He is a commander, but he is also a lethal warrior on his own too. Being only 20 points, his commander effect isn't too hard to make use of, but he'd probally still work best as a grunt here.

200 points: 4/5 Brilliant commander effect with good fighitng abilities equals a solid piece. No complaints.

Sculpt: 5/5 I have actually yet to see one of these in reallife, but the sculpt looks amazing on the internet. I dont know why... perhaps I just like his pants or something.
