The CAP-2 Captivator was a model of walker employed by the Galactic Empire and bounty hunters. Able to fit one pilot, the CAP-2 Captivator walked on two legs, with the pilot standing upright in a bubble-enclosed canopy. Two mechanical arms ending in remote-operated claws extended from the front of the vehicle with a blaster cannon mounted between them, and a large mechanism on the back held prisoners for transport. The CAP-2 Captivator's feet contained sensors for spying on its prey.
During the Galactic Civil War fought by the Empire against the Rebel Alliance, Imperial spies used the CAP-2 Captivator to capture unsuspecting Rebels. Bounty hunters often also used the walkers to capture their targets. Bossk was one such bounty hunter who used a CAP-2 Captivator for that purpose.
Behind the scenes
The CAP-2 Captivator was created in 1982 for Kenner's Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back toy line. The figure's packaging showed Bossk using the walker to capture Rebel Colonel Ledick Firest and deliver him to the Dark Lord of the Sith Darth Vader.
