Gentle Giant Ltd. is proud to welcome our upcoming Kenner Jumbo IG-88 Figure to the line-up! One of the most memorable moments of The Empire Strikes Back featured Darth Vader on the bridge of the Executor addressing the now infamous line-up of bounty hunters. These characters have gone on to become fan favorites, heavily featured in the official Expanded Universe and fan fiction alike. Our collectors have been begging for these figures for a long time, and we’re excited to finally start rolling them out. Look for more of them in the near future!
In order to track down the fleeing Han Solo and Princess Leia, Darth Vader has assembled a rogues gallery of Bounty Hunters and assorted scum… including the deadly assassin droid, IG-88!
Digitally scanned from mint 3 3/4” Kenner originals and reproduced to a substantial 1/6th scale, IG-88 towers above the competition. Nothing has been overlooked. Roto and injection molded and made of durable plastics, this jumbo figure is fully articulated and includes a pair of faithfully reproduced blasters, just like the original.
That’s not all, this classic Kenner creation comes packaged on a 1980 Empire Strikes Back-inspired blister card, featuring original front and “45 back” artwork, in a re-sealable plastic outer clam shell to help protect and display!
