You knew he had to of made the list for 2008. How
could he not! For the first time since Revenge of
the Sith, we have a republic version of everyone's
favorite frog. For those of you who do not know
where the frog comes from, I used to have a 200pt
squad called team froggy that used CS Yoda with
Lando DS, Boba E and CS Qui-Gonn that did very well
at Gencon. That and then there is the Pink Five
reference that you have to check out if you havent
heard of it.
Any who, Yobuck is not a diverse character. He will
not fit into lots of different builds doing
different things. He is just too expensive and
gimmicky to do that. What he does do, when exploited
is kill LOTS of people. his one true charm is his
galloping attack where he gets to attack everyone he
runs by. Be careful though as it will give up
attacks of opportunity if he doesnt kill the
character. Grunts run in fear from him. Since you
can still use a normal attack with galloping attack,
it effectively gives him lightsaber assault without
having to spend force points. His galloping attack
becomes very abusable with the addition of R2. GA
only requires movement. Tow cable IS movement, so
therefore Yobuck gets a free flight assisted GA. On
his turn he can then gallop and regular attack,
giving him an effective triple against a character
that survives the first two gallops. Tack on Master
speed and Yobuck has one helluva reach.
His major downside is that he has block, so shooters
are going to have frog legs for lunch. ENTER PANAKA.
Not only can he be abused with R2, but Panaka can
then swap him into or out of places to make him even
deadlier. Yoda is dominating the meta right now
because if you are not specifically ready to deal
with him, he will generally wipe the hull with you.
Well there you have it. The top ten figures of 2008.
The fact SWF82 and i can look at the list and make
our own top 10s and only have one character
duplicated shows you how diverse the year was and
how high the quality of minis was overall. Let's
hope 2009 follows suit!
