    I'm seriously considering making one of these, partly because of how awesome this thread is.

    Re: IG88

    Thanks so much for all your kind words and comments guys! ... makes all the pain of the build worthwhile!
    IG was always a favorite of mine as a kid too ... when I did the battledroid I actually started looking into IG then but not enough was known about the parts at that time (1999), so the battledroid was born first !
    Ive recently applied a bit of brain power back on IG in the form of 'what Id do differently '... I think the main difference , which would speed up the build a fair bit , would be to use FOAMEX/SINTRA for the main body structure ,... as well as being faster to build it would be lighter for carting to gigs ... the trick is still to get as MUCH WEIGHT into the feet as possible (within reason )to lower the centre of gravity ... so again , a foamex body would benefit this too.

    Im currently working out the bugs on some Clone Wars builds ... one of which may see the light of day is the IG86 ... bit of a way off yet though !
