First finished build for 2017, this is Bandai's 1/12 K-2SO from Rogue One. Even if you haven't seen it yet, it's not really giving much away to say he pretty much steals the film. In many ways he's even better than 3P0 and R2.

Bandai's kit is for the most part as good as all their previous releases, although the plastic is quite soft which makes cleaning up the sprue gates (which aren't as well hidden as some of the earlier kits) a little harder. I tried to mach the weathering to the real K2 as much as possible, using hairspray chipping and various washes to build up the grime on his plating. The base is a rough representation of the Jedha landscape.

Lovely work as always. The first shot captures his character really well, and your lighting match with the desert is great too.

 

Cheers,

Excellent work. You really understand the tired / worn nature of Lucas' universe. Looking forward to the next couple of builds (TIE Striker, C3PO) as well.

Andy, that could actually be K-2SO, you've really bought the details out on this great kit. Really cool to watch the build come together, inspirational Artwork and cool photography! Congrats on another awesome model and the base is super realistic i can smell Jedha!

Just WoW!!!! Andy. Simply Stunning. This kit has just arrived at the Post Office and I wanted to jump into it, but I think I will take my time to get it to a better standard than the box offers. I will follow your build for tips and hints. Thanks for sharing.

You didn't add Jyn's backpack dropped to the ground? ;)

 

Good call about K2 stealing the show. Him and BB8 are fantastic additions to the universe. Congrats Andy. You're off to a terrific start this year!

Had the same thought, ha ha!

 

Andy, you made a daydream come true for me. When I came back from cinema I checked all the Bandai stuff on Amazon again and had a K-2SO in mind exactly the way you did it. I love it and will shamelessly copy it as soon as I can! With backpack of course. :winkgrin:

Thanks mostrich. The backpack would be a cool addition. I look forward to seeing your take on K2.

a superb model and the first I've seen of this kit - making it one to remember.

I wish my hands were that close to my knees, it would make pulling my socks up so much easier...
