Topic: HK-47 vs. IG-88

I'd love to see this fight smile

Who do you think would win?

This is kind of hard to figure out. Both are assassins, and both are self sentient. They're both equally smart, in my opinion, so brain power's not a problem. Plus, both are walking weapon factories, so fire power isn't a problem either.

I'd have to go with HK. He's a psycho, plus he's more agile than IG, he can probably out maneuver him.  IG's a bit clunky.

Re: HK-47 vs. IG-88

I vote for IG-88 because the only person I remember defeating one was Boba Fett.

Re: HK-47 vs. IG-88

My vote goes to IG-88 because their were actually four of them so I like the odds of 4 to 1.

Re: HK-47 vs. IG-88

IG is smarter than Hk i dont remember any other driods actually taking control of the second death star and formulating a plan to take over the galaxy. IG is also very agile at the start of his story in BHW he was fast enough to dodge the attacks or make sure the shots hit him were the armor was thickest.

I'm smiling because they havn't found the bodies yet. :)

Hell yeah

Re: HK-47 vs. IG-88

I vote IG-88 only because Hk-47 got taken down by T3-M4, and i think he is a little too cocky for his own good.

Good... Bad... I'm the one with the gun.

But HK-47 had his "offspring" of the whole FACTORY of HK-51s.  Not to mention he's been blown up who knows HOW many times and he keeps coming back, so my money's on the Meatbag-hatin' machine.

Re: HK-47 vs. IG-88

I vote for HK-47 because he is really good in KotOR, and I don't think IG-88 was that great even though I read his story in Tales of the Bounty Hunters. And wizardofcars, the battle is only IG-88 vs. HK-47, not all four IG's against HK-47. Lord Revan would probably also vote for HK-47. Hey, did anyone notice that HK-47 sounds like the gun AK-47?

Re: HK-47 vs. IG-88

Appo, i'm 99.999999% sure thats where the name came from =/

And although HK is completely awesome, easily one of the greatest characters ever, he just doesn't have the reasoning capacity that IG-88 has. Plus, 88 is more than 47...

Good... Bad... I'm the one with the gun.

Re: HK-47 vs. IG-88

IG-88 would have slaughtered HK-47 if technology in Star Wars followed a logical form of progression, but for some strange reason...everything stays the same for centuries and centuries (or close enough anyway.)

As much as I love HK, I lean towards IG-88 in the fight because HK was always following someone else's orders while IG-88 brought about his own self awareness and served no one...ever. But they're both awesome.

Re: HK-47 vs. IG-88

I don't know a lot about IG-88 so I'm more inclined to go with HK. Besides HK would have to stand for Hunter-Killer surely? (Ah a Terminator reference) big_smile

Re: HK-47 vs. IG-88

what if HK stood for Heckler & Koch?  /shifty

who would win in a fight?  i don't know.

personality?  hk wins that one.  ig is cold and boring.  hk at least makes your last few moments interesting with his rapier wit.

Yeah, I like it when he says, "Statement: I am ready to serve, master."

Statement: I wasn't wrong when I said that Revan would agree with me.
Idea: HK-47 fans, let's all call IG fans meatbags on this thread so that they will become so sick of it that they will become HK fans like us. J/k, j/k! But you IG-88 fans still are meatbags.
Opinion: I still say that HK beats IG any day! Also, IG-88 looks kinda stupid to me. His head looks too weird.

Re: HK-47 vs. IG-88

The stupidity of his head has nothing to do with this. So what your saying is that technolegy gets worse over time?

Re: HK-47 vs. IG-88

Answer: No, that is not what he said, he merely stated that HK could probably beat IG.
Statement: Although I do have to agree with him about his head. It's a re-used cantina prop.

Question: What's wrong with liking IG-88? Fine if we're meatbags, then you're fruitbags!

Re: HK-47 vs. IG-88

Lol. Anyways I can;t answer your question because I don't know much about HK-47, other than the fact that IG-88 would totally blow him apart into spare lawnmower parts.
