General description:
THE single most recognizable ship in the game, and I managed to pull one out of a base set pack in my Force Unleashed tin. I've seen copies of it go online for 10-20 dollars, but is it worth it?

Uses:
Huge attack boost and average other stats. It's clearly designed to hunt down smaller ships, since 3 shields and 2 damage aren't ideal for attacking large ships. This makes it very useful, as most fleets I've seen tend to have lots of weaker units.

Strategies and game play:
Plant it in the "contested zone" and use it to attack any 1 or 2 star units that pass by. It's also very useful for attacking any units that have 10 or higher defense. If a unit with 11 defense is giving you trouble, just have the Falcon take a shot at it, and you may not even need to boost its damage or attack.

Combos with other miniatures:
In addition to its good stats, the Falcon has three of the best icons in the game: Lasers and Torpedo have some of the best offense and defense cards there are, and Droid means it can repair itself if needed.
A few cards I use with it:
Repair
Relentless Assault
Wedge Antilles
Elite Trooper
Blinding Explosion

Ways to counteract it:
Attack it with a powerhouse ship. With only three shields, the Falcon is vulnerable to a few good attacks, and even if your opponent is using repair cards, 3 shields is simply not enough to stand up against a powerful attack. Almost any 4 or 5 star unit can take it out in a single shot, but be careful in case of misses. A unit with high shields of it's own, and decent damage (like any of the Landing Craft units) is good for this.

Strengths/Pros:
-Really big attack boost
-Three really useful icons
-decent defense

Weaknesses/Cons:
-Low shields
-Low damage
-Can't fight large ships well

Artwork and aesthetics:
It looks like the Millennium Falcon, what's to complain about? The little satellite dish on it is loose for some reason, but that isn't a big deal.

Overall rating:
A great ship for gunning down smaller enemies, this fits in with its movie role, and in a game where fleets tend to contain a lot of cannon fodder ships, this is useful. Unfourtuanately the low damage and defense mean capital ships pose a problem.

8 out of 10.

I like Darth Vader's Tie Advanced better, and it (or Ki-Adi-Mundi's Jedi Fighter Tank or any other three damage unit with high attack), can kill the Millennium Falcon pretty well.

Thanks, and I agree with your ship choices. The right cards can improve anything though.
