It was in service of Jabba the Hutt when C-3PO and R2-D2 came to Jabba's Palace in 4 ABY. It squealed in pain as 8D8, under the command of its supervisor droid EV-9D9, lowered a hot glowing iron on the soles of its feet.
Behind the scenesEdit
This unnamed character was known as the "Dustbin Droid" during the production of Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi and was called that in the Return of the Jedi Giant Collector's Compendium. A Topps trading card called it a "Dustbin Robot." The power droid was played by Kiran Shah. In Star Wars: Battlefront II, in the Jabba's Palace level, the droid can be heard screaming.
