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
