I'm thinking about taking this list to the store game next week. I wouldn't say our meta is SUPER Phantom heavy, but I figured since I have Han at PS9 I'd make sure to get initiative by going with 98 points:

Han Solo - Marksmanship, C-3PO
Chewbacca - Predator, Millennium Falcon

What do y'all think? Different upgrades? Different pilots?

Maybe switch Threepio to Chewie?

I guess it's a choice between spreading out defense boons vs. making Chewbacca a super tank.

Switching does leave Han relying on a naked one die chance to evade damage, though. Against 4 dice guns, IDK, but having two evades per round on the ship that can't take (dealt) crits might be better than one evade per YT.

I would expect Han to go down pretty quickly either way if the opponent can line up the shots, but he'll shoot first and shoot hard.

Try it both ways and let us know!

GL!

You can't take Chewie as a crew member and also have him as a pilot.

If that was aimed at my suggestion, let me rephrase for clarity, sorry.

Switch C-3PO (Crew) onto the Chewbacca (Pilot) YT.

EDIT: Reread my post and may have glossed over some important details:

To break this down: C-3PO (Crew) on a 1 AGI ship (guess "zero" and you'll either trigger C-3PO or have an evade, MF title for Evade action, Chewbacca (Pilot) ability (turns them facedown without resolving).
