He's fine, but that extra point may be better used elsewhere. As you can probably guess by his small stature it dosen't take much to drop his Hp to 0 as he has no defense die.
(He is useful for guaranteed damage, but the little guy is slow. Try to use him as a little assassin to defeat weakened enemies- or to attack enemies who have many defense dice. (Vader, At-St's, and etc.)
He isn't currently used in the meta but that doesn't mean you cant use him for fun. Nobody thought the Ugnaughts would be a force in skirmish until the little piggies started shining.
