Just before Bounty Hunters came out, there was much discussion of the leaked stats for Komari Vosa. Could they possibly be correct? She was surely going to be the new Aurra Sing! Four attacks at range! (why doesn't she have a ranged weapon in the sculpt?) She's going to blast everyone into oblivion! (she only fought with lightsabers in the video game where she originated...) She's the best thing since bread was pre-sliced for your convenience!

Then release day came, and with it, the official errata that Komari was supposed to have Melee Attack. This simple change turns her into pretty much a useless mess. At 47 points, 80 hit points and 18 Defense are laughably bad for a melee piece. She's not going to make it to the fight; any competent player will shoot her long before then.

Even if she does make it all the way up to an enemy piece through the hail of blaster bolts, her +9 Attack isn't doing her any favors. Those four attacks she can make will amount to maybe a 50% hit rate against any kind of reasonable beatstick.

She also sports Control Minds, another Force Power that turns into a Commander Effect when used. It's cute, but not game winning by any stretch, and using it makes Vosa ineligible for other commander's Effects, which she desperately needs in order to be any good at all.

So, the fundamental problems in trying to get some quality violence out of Vosa are (a) getting her to an enemy safely, and (b) raising her Attack so she can actually hit that enemy. R2-D2, Astromech Droid can do the former, while Tarfful could help with the latter. Thrawn can teleport her into position, and maybe Emperor Palpatine could give her additional Force Point rerolls. Chewbacca, Rebel Hero can Bodyguard her trip up to the fight, while Admiral Ackbar helps her Attack. That's about all I can do. She's a bad piece. Don't use her if you care about winning.
