"The captain says you're a friend. I will not kill you."
With hours to go until Thursday previews begin for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Hot Toys has unveiled their 1/6th scale collectible figure of K-2SO (voiced by Alan Tudyk), the Rebel-owned Imperial enforcer droid. Based on reviews, K-2SO steals every scene it's in and could become as memorable a droid in the Star Wars universe as are HK-47, AZ-3, Chopper, C-3PO and R2-D2
"A reprogrammed Imperial security droid now loyal to the Alliance, K-2SO is an alarming sight standing within a secret Rebel base. The pragmatic droid is an effective insertion agent, as he can blend in perfectly at Imperial installations and outposts," reads the official description. "Now Hot Toys is very excited to introduce the widely anticipated 1/6th scale collectible figure of this new droid! Meticulously crafted based on the appearance of the droid in the new film, the highly accurate K-2SO collectible figure stands approximately 36cm tall and features a sophisticatedly constructed mechanical structure, LED light-up eyes with separate rolling eyeballs, a blaster pistol, a grenade, and a specially designed figure stand!"
