    Question IG88 differences...

    I was going through some of our loose vintage figs and noticed that 2 of our loose IG88 figs look silver-grey and the third loose one looks plain grey...was there a paint change? Maybe one was left out in the sun? Anyone else see this?

    Yes. The IG-88 I had as a kid was the dull grey (gray?), and I had to replace it when somehow his arm was broken at the elbow; the replacement was also gray (grey?). I heard of the "variant" silver one, and I saw one at a shop for $6 or so, so I picked it up. I believe there was a paint change. I do not consider it a true variant, just a slightly different color.

    this is a list of ALL known kenner vintage 3 3/4" variations

    Ig88 is listed as grey first, then silver as a paint variation but I think it depends upon what each collector themselves consider what a variation is! Like BCJ said above, he doesn't consider it one and I myself really don't care about variations either unless they are big ones like telescoping lightsabers and vinyl cape jawas

    scroll down to ESB series III

    Hope this helps

    Besides the difference in lustre and hue, these two IG-88s have two different head sculpts too, so this might be considered a legitimate (gasp!) variation. You can see this variation by clicking on the IG-88 link on this page: http://www.artoosnews.com/vintage/
