Not really. It seems as if hanging him on a figure just makes that figure more prone to tipping over, causing the Emperor to die. Maybe if he latched onto either the AT-RT or Boga he'd be more effective, I don't know.

All I know is that in the few times I've tried him out, he hasn't been all that useful.

I'm seeing him maybe as more of a denial figure. If I don't want YOU to use figure X, I possess him and make you shoot your own guy down.

I see him the same way ... deny the other player use of a figure. Also, if your opponent defeats his own figure (with the Emperor hanging on), you may get the figure's special ability (if it is relevant for you).

I don't have the figure yet, but, I was thinking that I might play him as, If I have the emperor I get to attack with three figures instead of two until he is removed from play. I don't know his 'special' so this may not work.

Every figure has a 'special' ability when it gets shot down. If the window in the bottom of the base shows a white space (after they are down) then that special ability is activated.
You have to design a team to support each other when they get shot down. Just picking random figures for the point value or number of figures on the board dosen't always help in the long run if you have a strategy.

Re:The Emperor
Nicodeamous LOL I know this game and how it works.

Maybe you should listen to people who know the game more then you instead of questioning them.

Like I said the Emperor Have NOT got a 'special' ability

Sorry, I don't have the figure and I don't know what abilities it has. But, the 'hanging on' thing dosen't seem to work, with what I've read, so I was just offering an alternative.
I haven't played it like that, so it may not work but, I'm just trying to make the figure workable. The Emperor should (imo) have some kind of special influence. (imho)

The Emperor's base is blank on the bottom.
