IG-88 - Star Wars

IG-88 is the infamous bounty hunter assassin droid showed briefly in The Empire Strikes Back in a scene where Vador convenes a troop of bounty hunters to ensnare Luke and company. Even before the Empire's rise, assassin drones were banned due to their aggressive tendency to overthrow their masters. Holowan Laboratories' design for the IG-88 model intended to overcome these problems, but lead to disastrous effects.
