Here is a review of one of the characters from the recently released Star Wars Rogue One film , known as K-2SO . For those of you wondering if the last digit in his name is the number zero or the letter o , I wandered the same thing . It is the letter o, which I found out by visiting his Wikipedia page . He is also known as Kay-Tuesso, so that's how I know it's the letter o and not the number zero. To learn more about the character, you can visit his Wikipedia page here - . Many of you may also remember seeing this character in the Nissan car commercial . Remember he looked down on the lady driving the car at the commercial's end. Here is a link to that commercial courtesy of Youtube - . Now on to the action figure. I purchased this figure of K-2SO at a local Walmart for around the $ 19.99 price range .

K-2SO comes with no accessories, just figure only. However he's such a cool action figure he does not need any . Now for a look at the figure out of the packaging.

As you can see K-2SO is taller than the average six inch scaled figure, right at seven inches tall. He is very tall with long arms. He is extremely detailed with external circuitry. Plus the chipped up paint is done on purpose, it is not a mistake. It's like that in the movie, to give a sense of realism, as if some of the paint has been chipped off in battle. Plus the control panel on his upper back is nicely done with the protruding antennas . I think one of the best features K-2SO possess is the articulation in his neck. You can move his head all around in all directions, and even imitate that pose from the Nissan television commercial .
Recognize the above pose ? It's the same one from the Nissan commercial, at the end when he's looking down at the woman in the car . The ball jointed neck allows his head to move in all directions. Now for a look at the length of his arms using a 12 inch ruler .
As you can see K-2SO's arms are as long as he is tall . If he was a person instead of a robot, or in Star Wars terminology , " a droid", he probably would make an excellent basketball player . He has the height and the long arms to make being a ball player possible .
                                                            FINAL  THOUGHTS 

(1) ARTICULATION - The point of articulation I think that stands out the most is the ball jointed neck. The directions and positions he can display his head in proves he's not human .

(2) STANDING  ABILITY - Kind of tricky at first, but once you make the proper stance he stands well. He can become top heavy if not balanced properly with those skinny legs, however the proper balance makes him stand like a normal figure. He seems to stand best without falling on very hard wood surfaces .

(3) WHAT  I  LIKE  BEST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? - His extremely long arms and the all around ball jointed neck articulation .

(4) WHAT  I  LIKE  LEAST  ABOUT  THIS  FIGURE ? - There is nothing I dislike about the figure.

(5) WHAT  COULD  HAVE  BEEN  DONE  TO  IMPROVE  THE  FIGURE ? - No improvements needed .

(6) GRADING  SCALE - A PERFECT 10 I could find no flaws.

(7) FINAL  ANALYSIS - K-2SO joins CP-30 , R2-D2 among other droids as a droid action figure in the Star Wars universe . Plus this figure is a perfect likeness to the movie version .
