all expecting Bib Fortuna to be the piece that made
Jabba the Hutt competitively playable? He was going
to have some awesome ability that offset the Hutt’s
unfortunate cost, and maybe further enhanced the
bounty hunters that Jabba commands, right? Surely,
if any set was going to make Jabba worthwhile, it
would be a set called “Bounty Hunters,” right?
Sadly, this was not to be. There are a number of
pieces in the set that cost one less when in a squad
with Jabba, and Bib is one of them, but several of
them aren’t really worth playing, either, and Bib is
also one of them.
Bib is clearly designed to be functionally similar
to the Twi’lek Scoundrel, a piece that regularly
makes lists of the worst pieces in the game. He has
even lower stats than that waste of points, with his
only up side being Poison 20, an ability that will
work, at best, half the time. He can theoretically
do 40 damage in a round, with Poison and Cunning
Attack, but he’s a melee piece with Defense 12 and
20 hit points. If he gets to make one attack, you’re
doing well. Don’t bother.

First things first, I'd like to apologize for my
last review (Bith Black Sun Vigo) for thinking that
its damage was 20 instead of 10. As a reviewer, I
shouldn't have made that mistake. However, it
wouldn't have made too much of a difference on my
views of the piece, anyway.
Now... onto Bib! I happen to like this piece, as he
is actually fairly good for his cost. I, however,
don't like reviewing small Uniques, so this will be
short and sweet.
All of his stats are low, but pretty much above
average for 8 measly points. With Cunning Attack, he
becomes a +8 attacker for 20, which isn't too
Add that to Poison +20, that's a 50% chance for him
to do 40 damage, which is insane for 8 points. He
has Melee Attack, which is bad. He also has Rapport
for Jabba, which is really useless.
A good piece, but will mostly be used as filler.
Being able to do up to 40 damage will make him a
target for your opponent, and if your opponent
neglects him it could do a surprising ammount of
I would have rathered him have some sort of cool
commander effect, but an 8 point fringe filler (even
if it is Unique) isn't a bad thing to say the least.
100 points: 3/5 Filler.
200 points: 3.5/5 Filler.
Sculpt: 4/5 Yay! We at last have the infamous Bib
