Greetings fellow fans!
Recently I've been bugged by the IG-88 operator credit which is all over the internet, simply because it's on IMDb.
On IMDb, a Paul Klein was credited as the operator. BUT I remember the Star Wars Insider magazine looked into it when I was a subscriber.
I was able to track down issue #49 on eBay, which is an Empire Strikes Back anniversary issue. This issue contains an article on bounty hunter characters and the actors who played them. The section on IG-88 mentions that Lucasfilm has no official record of who the operator was, and IMDb lists Paul Klein as IG-88 . However, there is no Paul Klein listed anywhere else on Empire's effects crew. It then goes on to ask readers for any further information they have.
I vaguely recall reading in a later issue that they found the guy, who admitted to just thinking it would be cool to be credited on IMDb. But memory plays strange tricks sometimes, and I no longer have my old magazines, so I am trying to track down further info.
Do any of you still have your old Star Wars Insider issues? It would probably be listed in an issue sometime before Episode III came out.
