Double Attack; Djem So; Flurry

Force 2; FR1 - Block, Deflect, Knight Speed

Every set has a sub theme, whether it be EpI, EPIV, whatever.  This set seems to have the sub theme based on Rebel Storm, seeing as all of the rebel pieces are juiced up Rebel Storm re releases.   Today we look at the new Luke.  The new version is 2pts more with exactly the same stats as Jedi Knight from Rebel Storm.  The difference is in the packaging.  The old Luke only had double attack.  The new Luke has that along with Djem So and flurry.  That alone would make the new Luke pretty good.  For all the pros and cons of Djem So read my Vader review as i am not going to go through the whole speel again.  Needless to say that it is almost always a good thing.

The new Luke has force renewal.  Again that would be enough as the old one only has three fixed FPs.  All the old Luke could do is sweep and Leap.  Not bad abilities, but it meeans he will die fast, and they are not powers that are overly good anyway.  Jedi loses both of these, but gains block and deflect.  This is outstanding as you now have the same piece, but now has the capability to defend herself...himself(Sorry, must be the hair).  Tack on Knight speed and you increases his striking distance, which is always good for melee.  All of this for only two points more is awesome.  This is a HUGE improvement over the RS piece.  He now also has tons of help from his rebel buddies.

100pts: I am going to say not likely here, but with his cost and the buddies he can bring, i would not surprise me if someone used him and did well.

150/200pts:  Here he is equally good and can be run in both.  he is fast, defensible, and cheap.  He will fit into any number of squads.  He wont  be an uber piece, but he doesnt need to be.  That is what the rest of the squad is for.
