|Unidentified IG-100 MagnaGuard|
|Chronological and political information|
In 22 BBY, the Galactic Republic managed to trace the location of the Separatist listening post, the Skytop Station, and sent a clone strike team lead by Jedi General Anakin Skywalker and padawan Ahsoka Tano to take it out.
Meanwhile on the station, Grievous discovered that the captured Republic astromech droid R2-D2 hadn't had it's memory erased and still contained every Republic formation and strategy, so he assigned four IG-100 MagnaGuard droids, including this one, to guard him. Later, Grievous ordered the droids to take the R2 unit aboard his ship, the Soulless One, but on their way to the ship they were intercepted by Anakin Skywalker and a firefight ensued.
This droid and a fellow one attacked Skywalker together, but the Jedi managed to overpower the first one and cut this one in half with his lightsaber. The droid's torso, which was still functional, then tried to reach for Skywalker, but was electrocuted by R2-D2s arc welder and the droid was finally destroyed.
