Those who have watched Rogue One will know and love the sassy robot that conquered our hearts one line at a time. After all this time, I still shed a tear (a bucket load, and at work too) when watching selected scenes on YouTube. Oh my dear snarky robot, you shall live on forever in my heart. Or if you’re a gigantic fan with a lot of room in your house, you can consider buying this 1:1 life-sized K-2SO figure by Sideshow. I barely have space to place myself in my room, so I’ll have to pass. Don’t take away from the fact that this is absolutely awesome though!
For those of you who don’t know who this is. This robot is an Imperial security droid Cassian Andor reprogrammed to help him, but accidentally created the sarcastic wonder that is K-2SO. This one’s got a collection of wonderful quotes that will convert you into a fan by the time you get to the 3rd. But anyway, going back to the figure. By life-sized, I do mean it. This one stands at 94 inches tall, easily towering over you in all his intricately detailed glory. Just look at the details put into making his joints.
Those weathered scratches on the figure are definitely not CG, because the company has painstakingly made sure every scratch and rust is properly represented on the droid. Amidst the damage, you can still see the red and yellow detailing and the Empire emblem on his shoulder. He’s going to look exactly like how he did in the movie. Only, well, less life-like. But I’m sure we can all fill his snarky and sweet personality in with our imagination.
My favorite part of this is that his eyes can light up and you can move his head around for a more lively look. I imagine this figure will be quite a showpiece or a great collection to your Star Wars collectibles. So if you’re interested in getting this K-2SO figure, head over to this website and pre-order him for USD8,900. It’s expensive, but what were you expecting when I said he’s life-sized?
