Heres a couple of my observations on both the V-set and existing epic characters;
1. They can be insta-killed (with Big D or concentrated direct damage).
2. They aren't followers. So by comparison, at that point format, they are vulnerable to ranged attacks and Direct Damage.
Also, I feel they are overcosted for the large skirmish format, but adequately costed for standard 200 or small combat format.
These epics raise the question: should non-unique jedi/force users be 'epic upped'?
Epics would be great to use as HQ figures (GWs W40K system); im thinking darkside HQ would be like Tau Ethereals - their deaths cause leadership tests...
In any event, epic characters are interesting to play.
Id field more characters with disintegration to counter the epics,
and I'd probably either go for recon/activation control or override and door control.
