IG-88 by robotbreath IG-88 by robotbreath
Killing 2 Mynocks with one droid today! :D

For the DA-Speedpaint daily topic [link] and my daily robot blog [link] .

It's that droid what was seen with Boba Fett in Empire Strikes Back when Vader issued the bounty for Han Solo.

IG-88 has a fairly fleshed out back story, as many background characters now do. Once activated it killed its makers and transferred its consciousness into 3 other IG-88 models. They all then split up and became bounty hunters. IG-88B is the one seen in ESB. Interestingly IG-88A, the leader, uploaded itself into the 2nd Death Star and was about to start his droid rebellion when the Rebel Alliance blew it up. :)

Fun Fact: The character was built out of props from A New Hope. Its head can be seen in the Cantina scene. [link]

omg i've always liked this character! he actually inspired the character in my avatar somewhat because of the long head! i never knew about his back story though, it's pretty cool! one thing i always loved about star wars, especially in the cantina scene, is that it had so many creative and imaginitive characters hanging around, and most of them only appear for less than a second! this guy was one of the bounty hunters that i wish got more screen time, so that he would get a chance to kick some ass

IG-88 was definitely one of those characters that made me wonder the first time seeing ESB. How is this thin, seemingly ill-jointed/stiff robot able to be a bounty hunter? How does he even pull the trigger with those clamp hands? :) I like how they have extended the IG droid series. Like the pretty badass IG lancer droids seen in the Tartarkovsky Clone Wars Cartoon [link] .
