  • This 6-inch IG-88 was released individually boxed
  • The figure came with 4 accessories - a vibro blade - a blaster - a blaster rifle and a removable bandolier with attached holster in the back
  • The vibro blade can be stuck into two little holes which are on the back of the bandolier - and the holster can house the Imperial blaster perfectly - check it out here: IG-88 holster
  • The bandolier can be plugged into a hole on top of IG-88's right shoulder - this allows for the bandolier to stay in place (this works very well)
  • Hasbro put small holes into the back of each blaster - which can be plugged into the pegs on both arms - this helps both weapons to stay in place (genius Hasbro!) - check it out here: IG-88's blaster I and IG-88's blaster II
  • IG-88 is sculpted beautifully with lots of wires and details on the front and the back - even the vibro blade has scratch marks on it and dents in it
  • The paint application is also done quite well with a dull metallic look and some brownish/bronze highlights here and there
  • IG-88's red eyes are also present - but they seem to be too far inside the head when compared to the movie counterpart
  • The joints are extremely well hidden on this figure and don't distract from the appearance - take a look at how poseable IG-88 is: IG-88 action pose
  • Even though IG-88 is about one head taller than Boba Fett - the figure unfortunately feels too short and too petite in comparison
  • We found it to be quite difficult to pose and balance the figure out without falling over after a few minutes (we could use some stands for the 6 inch figures Hasbro!)
  • Despite some shortcomings it's evident that Hasbro put a lot of effort into designing IG-88 - and the end result is a very detailed - well executed action figure - which deserves room on your display shelf
