IG-88, also called a "Phlutdroid," was a rogue masculine IG-series assassin droid who worked as a bounty hunter. Following the Battle of Hoth, he and several other bounty hunters were summoned by Darth Vader to the Executor and hired to track down the Millennium Falcon and her Rebel crew, though it was ultimately IG-88's chief rival, Boba Fett, who collected the bounty after pursuing the Falcon to Bespin.

HistoryEdit

A droid of the IG-series[2] and known as a "Phlutdroid,"[7] IG-88 was a chrome war droid standing at almost two meters in height, who turned to bounty hunting,[3] becoming one of the most feared hunters in the galaxy[8]—in part due to the lingering fear of droids, particularly those capable of battle and assassination, from the Clone Wars,[3] and a chief rival to the notorious Boba Fett.[1]

IG-88 consorted with Jabba Desilijic Tiure, and was present in the Hutt's palace while Jabba received Darth Vader. The Sith Lord told the Hutt to dispense with his audience, and IG-88, along with fellow hunters including 4-LOM and Boba Fett, departed from the court.[9] After the Battle of Hoth, IG-88 answered a call put out by Vader for bounty hunters to track down the Millennium Falcon. He and several other hunters, including Boba Fett and Bossk, assembled aboard the Executor, where Vader detailed the bounty, allowing his chosen hunters to use any methods necessary to capture Han Solo and his companions. Ultimately, Fett captured Solo in Cloud City on Bespin,[4] and delivered the bounty to Jabba on Tatooine.[10]

Behind the scenesEdit

Although he first appeared in Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back, IG-88's model was partially built out of recycled props from Episode V's predecessor, Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. One such detail includes IG-88's head, which was featured in the Mos Eisley Cantina as a background distillery prop.[11]
