    I always though the droid on cloud city was just a case of reusing props, and that the story by Anderson was just another case of a story not needed.

    In the case of IG-88 it should be noted that he is of a line of assassin droids so one could appear and it just be another one of them. As to reusing props, I'm pretty sure that IG-88's head is even a case of reusing props from the bar in A New Hope.

    However according to a brief internet search, IG-88 is still active post-Endor relatively close to TFA so maybe he's still around.

    Bossk is likewise a sort of prop reuse-he's basically a repainted cantina alien head with a British flightsuit (One that made a few appearences on "Doctor Who").

    Dengar, likewise, seems to have elements of Stormtrooper and Walker captain armor, so he's a bit of a "Kit bash" too, as well as 4-Lom who is basically a repainted Threepio with a new head.

    I'm guessing it might've been done a bit on the cheap since these guys only had a few seconds of screen time compared to Fett (although Zuckuss's costume doesn't appear to have that many reused elements either).

    IG-88 has been confirmed by Favreau. Looks pretty close to the original prop although a bit smoother.
