What the flippin flip

General description:
I really do not like this card. Why would you ever put a power 6, 7 or 9 character in a power 3 and defense 4 vehicle!!!!????? Why?! Also it needs a pilot, has deployment restrictions, only get immunity to attrition of > 4 as its only bonus with Chewie and its big bonus, subtracts 1 from the power of opponent's AT-ST's. Utterly counter productive card with chewie and the only way it becomes useful is with a pilot who adds to power and has a low defense..... like Wedge. The way i look at it is a power 3, defense 4, destiny 4, deploy 2, forfeit 5 character, which would not be bad except it needs a pilot to work and it has deployment restrictions. The person who said okay this would be a good card (at decipher)should have been demoted to something like coffee getter. Well maybe that is a bit extreme, but i just hate waisted cards that were released in the later expansions since they let the lisence go just past half way through the movies.

Uses:
I would use it in a deck designed to use cards i would never use.

Strategies and game play:
Would be useful if you get a character to pilot it with power > 3. But why do that when there are tons of character with way better stats that don't need 2 cards to work.

Combos with other cards:
A light side admirals orders (don't know which one and don't care to look it up) and chewie, that is it, that is all the possible combos. Any docking bay in the game has more combos than this thing.

Ways to counteract it:
No counter cards required, it is its own waist of space.

Strengths/Pros:
Base stats all good

Weaknesses/Cons:
Deployment restrictions
combos with chewie
needs pilot
no other combos for light side

Artwork and aesthetics:
Chewie in an AT-ST

Overall rating:

3 out of 10

I have never liked this card too, well maybe not so, when Endor first came out it was the only card I wanted until I got it and saw it for the first time.

This card is fun! Think of the arguing he had with two Ewoks!
Still when adding Chewie as a pilot, the total power would raise.

I shall definatly add this card in my Episode 6 deck, purely fun!
