Although I think mine is quite a bit different, Hopeso009's IG88 was a big inspiration for this build. If you ever see this, thanks Hopeso009 :thumbup:

Judging by the reference he would be better in dark bley, but most parts aren't available in that colour. A mix of dark bley and black might be possible though, hmmmmm, but for now, here you go...

NIce job. I think his body may be a little too skinny, though; it's the same width as his head in your model.

Yes, he is a bit on the skinny side, but I liked the extra detail of the slot in the technic bush and IMO almost anything is better than the official version. I could thin out his head by removing the studs (his head is possibly a bit too tall anyway) but then he has no character whatsoever. Here's a fatter version I did about a year ago...
EDIT: Although strictly speaking his body is STILL the same thickness as the top of his head. This just seems more filled out. I prefer the new one though.

How secure is the leg to foot connection?  Seems like something that would break often.

I've done it many times, and I can say that with a small MOC like this one, it's very secure.

Cheers, It's difficult to get everything bang-on at this scale. Maybe I should have presented him as a SW / LOTR Hybrid - IG-88 with Hobbit feet  :laugh:

Good question; it's surprisingly secure, for example when I took him off the base plate in the 1st picture, his foot stayed on (on him, not the baseplate  :wink: )
EDIT: Looks like Brickdoctor beat me to that answer

Very nice! Just a shame the legs can't be made more solid if you build him like that.  :hmpf_bad:

Looks great!  :classic: Overall I like this one better than your inspiration one, this one's built more in proportion and in scale of minifigs. I like the use of the halfpin's mold marks as details on the face aswell.

That's a very nice custom brickbuilt IG-88 minifig Praiter! Even if you took inspiration from Hopeso009, you still managed to put your own inputs for this modified version. It really looks much better than the official IG-88 figs and the height is relatively accurate to standard minifigs. Good work! :thumbup:

I'm interested to know that as well. It looks like he used a pneumatic T-piece there, but that would have a bulbous part that would prevent the robotic hand from attaching. Is there an older version of this piece I don't know about?

Thanks Tanotrooper, I was pleased with the marks on the face - I didn't realise they were the mold marks though :blush:

Hit the nail on the head there Brickdoctor. I used one of these - very handy.

Great job Praiter Yed  :thumbup:

I found some inspiration in the past too from Hopesoo009's designs.
Your design makes IG-88 look very sleek, the head and body (shoulder and hip connection) are very innovative.
Although I never liked using that the foot connection, but I guess there isnt a real alternative.

Well done!

The legs are more posable and the body / shoulders can rotate for maximum destruction, although It doesn't look like an actual IG-88 would do that. Thanks Big Cam

I found this image which gives an idea of IG-88's height. He seems to be stood on a lower level to Dengar so would be even taller - my version could be the correct height  :classic:
