A bounty on his head

A bounty on his head

This vintage toy shot means a lot because well, it’s me. I found this picture while cleaning my garage last weekend and it’s one that’s very special. 12″ IG-88 was not easily found in Canada (and purists will note that’s an American box beside me) and I remember being really happy with this.

Sadly, I sold hin during lean times in college, it’s a long shot but if you purchased a 12″ IG-88 at the Toronto toy show circa 1990-91 from a tall, possibly hung over man please drop me a line. I’d love to have him back.
Before you say it, I’m totally aware my fly is open. Also, happy to add that my grandmother’s living room is exactly the same 32 years later. No wonder I like going there.

    Never got into the 12 inch figures. Too much to lug around.

    Still got mine after all these years. Good luck getting him back. Maybe a certain Fett can help you, for a small fee…
