Here is an internet premiere of the custom-made full size IG 88 prop made by master modelmaker G. You may remember his work a while ago with the 12" scale Hammerhead doll and full size battle droid showcased at the Memorabilia show in the UK a couple of years ago.

This thing is incredible it is most likely the most accurate and engineered version of IG 88 out there, it took two years to make and is fully posable, with lights, motion tracked head movement and digital soundtracks. These pictures really dont do this justice. On a personal note I have known the artist behind this for 23 years and I have to say is one of the most talented and inspired artists I have ever met...

THE ULTIMATE IG 88!! IG88_shots_033 THE ULTIMATE IG 88!! IG88_shots_011 THE ULTIMATE IG 88!! IG88_shots_005

The genesis of this project was a based on the fact that the 15" IG 88 was a grail piece for years for me in the 1990s and this was done purely as a joking swipe at me in G's inimmatable style hence my ugly presence in some of the shots!
