I am not forgetting anyone.

I guess i will define playable on this context.
Playable means a tier 1 squad that has a chance of wimning gencon.

Yoda does not, he has kybuck. That has probably been played in every gencon since it came out. He will always produce a little but will never push the top realm. (Think the Milwaukee Bucks in basketball this year. Great season,
Played top team and got beat down)

GenSky is obliterated by disruptive abilities.
Anakin, hwnf and his pathetic attack makes him obsolete (possibly GOWK and mace could work with the right build but wouldn't win).

All I can say is, I've been gone from the community for 5 years, I come back now and see y'all STILL haven't made V-Set Dejarik pieces yet? Confused I'm so disappointed in y'all. Tongue

In all seriousness, my personal preference for the V-Sets has always been to make existing figures (especially Uniques and Larges) usable as the characters they are (or who they look really similar to) more than introducing brand-new characters to the game. Obviously that's something a lot of other people enjoy and I'm not knocking that. I'm really happy to see that Zayne Carrick, Shaak Ti, Darth Nihl, K'Kruhk, Vodo-Siosk Baas, Probe Droid, Octuptarra Droid, Exar Kun, Kol Skywalker, and many other figures have received reworks since I've been gone, and can now go from my "I never use these figures" bin back into my "I actually use these figures" bin.

I'm pretty sure I listed this as a want waaaay back when I was still active, and since it hasn't been made since then its still my #1 want: Jabba's Rancor

Looking through the list of V-Set figs and comparing them to WotC figs, other old unused characters that still haven't received reworks would include Nym, Lumiya, Even Piell, Clone Commander Bacara, Hoth Trooper with Atgar Cannon, and A'Sharad Hett. I may be mistaken on a few of those, but you get the idea.

And 29 point AAyla secura jedi knight seems to be a younger version of the character, maybe not a padawan, but definitely not jedi general level either.

If you still play you are only a couple hours away from a few of the Regionals we hold (assuming you are in Cedarville, OH) you should get familiar with the newer V-sets and come join us!!!!

Rum Sleg - Dooku assassin and bounty hunter. Worked with Ventress. Flight, vibroblade, assassin, bounty hunter bonus, what could be better you ask? Well, word is this character is a replacement in canon for Durge!!! Dude with the red spacesuit and skull painted mask for his face.

At this point I have very few specific characters I’d like to see made.
The only one I can think of is:
Quote:
Paploo on Speeder.
Fringe
Cost 10
HP 30
Atk +2
Def 15
Dam 10
Accelerate, Distraction, Ewok, Exclusive Loyalty, Flight, Swarm +1, and Flight.

NO STRAFE!!!

Basically cheap speedy distraction

Subfactions and pieces to build upon:
-Death Watch (especially to play with Bo-Katan to make pure Death Watch - we need a death watch piece with blaster upgrade or that give Death Watch NU twin)
-OR covenant (but only Uniques. NUs are fine)
-OR troopers and soldiers (specifically to play with the Arkanian Jedi General)
-Geonosians (but not drone bombs. Stuff to make the soldiers, elites, and sonic canon playable. Give Geos accurate? Geo canon shot? Attack boost? Etc.)
-Pirates (or NU smugglers and scoundrels to play with Booster Terrik. Could also just be new pieces with Tenacious)
-NR Wraiths pilots!
-Rogue One
-Something pure fringe without Karrde, Hutt Cartel or Black Sun?
-Something to add to Venku Skirata based Mandos. He is SO FUN!!!

Abilities and concepts:
-More pieces with EXCLUSIVE LOYALTY! (Narrow the field of possible combos whenever we can)
-More soft counters to power 11 pieces (such as on Aves and Booster Terrik)
-More damage CAP abilities (lightsaber protection, diffusion armor, etc).
-More low but unavoidable damage abilities (just not on cheap NUs)
-Less save rolls.

Just remembered another.
Stephen (Naarkon) and I came up with this on the drive back from the Ohio Regional. He’s one of the most prominent Sith players in our community right now, so his input was invaluable.

Quote:
Darth Wyyrlok, Emperor’s Ward

Cost 37
Sith
HP 100
Def 19
Atk +12
Dam 20

Double Attack
Melee Duelist
Booming Voice
Rapport 10 Darth Krayt (WotC only)
Rival - Unique Living Characters without melee attack (ie no Jaq)
Absorb Force - Whenever a Unique Sith ally is defeated gain 1 force point

Force Renewal 1, MotF 2
Force Cloak
Control Shatter 2 (Force 2, usable on this character's turn: Designate 1 adjacent door as open; it remains open for the rest of the skirmish and cannot be closed)
Chain Lightning 2 (Force 2, replaces attacks: range 6; 20 damage to target and to each enemy within 2 squares of the target

CE
An ally named Darth Krayt gains Presumed Dead (The first time this character’s Hit Points are reduced to half or less, he may immediately return to his squad’s setup area with his original Hit Points).

For the rest of the skirmish, Unique Living Sith allies with a force rating gain Absorb Force and Controls Shatter 2


Wyyrlok was the most significant figure in that series without a remake. In fact bigger than some that have. He deserves a version where he was the acting Emperor with Krayt was in stasis.

Especially a fan of the new concept “Absorb Force”

Well now that Rianna and Zeeo are a thing all we need is Abeloth one day to come out as the most expensive piece in the game and I'll be truly happy haha.

Would also be nice to see:

Karina the Great (spawning Geonosians since the Poggle double errata ruined them entirely)
Leebo to help Dash come back (like a Jan Ors style piece)
The remaining Separatist Council members
Son and Daughter
