See the Life-Size K-2SO from Sideshow for San Diego Comic-Con 2017!
“Did you know that wasn’t me?”
One of the standout heroes of the first Star Wars anthology film, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, K-2SO™ proved to audiences everywhere that rebels come in all sizes. The imposing former imperial droid endeared himself to fans with his rogue one-liners and charming reluctance to assist his human co-stars.
For San Diego Comic Con 2017, Sideshow wanted to bring some of the epic action to with an incredible K-2SO™ Life-Size Figure. The fan-favorite droid stands over 7′ tall in rogue 1:1 scale, and is detailed with weathering, gears, and intricate joints. He even has light-up eyes!
K-2SO will be there for you, standing assembled at Booth #1929 for SDCC 2017. Susan, a rebel to the core, donned some galactic gear and posed with the droid to help give you a sense of the impressive scale. This is a rebellion, after all.
This project has been a labor of love and passion from our artists, who wanted to rebel against the odds and create something spectacular for convention-goers this summer. Let’s take a closer look behind the scenes-
The artists had to take into account his size and the physics involved in building a Star Wars character of this scale- in the film, K-2SO was entirely CGI, so to create a physical representation of him was an epic undertaking.
Project Manager Matt Bischoff said:
We’ve been around the project for so long. It’s exciting to finally see him standing there looking back at us when I walk into work each morning. It really is stunning to see him standing there; you get a real sense of how imposing he was as a character.
The K-2SO Life-Size Figure will be making his debut at Sideshow’s Booth #1929 at San Diego Comic Con 2017 this week, where fans can see how they measure up to this massive droid, while also getting a closer look at the K-2SO Premium Format™ Figure appearing at the booth as well.
Matt Bischoff added:
The real joy is going to be when I see the attendees on the convention floor and the moment they see the piece for the first time. I hope everyone loves this guy as much as we do!
