When much of the general public thinks of the badass bounty hunters summoned by Darth Vader to track down Han Solo in THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, it’s Boba Fett that generally comes immediately to mind. But among those featured in that brief, yet iconic scene (Dengar, IG-88, Fett, Bossk, 4-LOM, Zuckuss), the assassin droid IG-88 has long-been viewed as one of the more interesting (and creepy) by hardcore fans. In fact, the official STAR WARS website describes assassin droids as “independently programmed mechanical killers that had no masters.” For the May 18th entry into the Force Friday Countdown Calendar, Hasbro is featuring their 2007 Titanium Series IG-88 figure (find it on eBay).
While I never got into the Titanium Series of Die-Cast figures and vehicles myself, they’ve held onto a small, yet loyal following among STAR WARS fans over the years.
