K-2SO is an intimidating and impressive looking action figure

Star Wars - Rogue One hits theaters next month but we are getting a few action figures hitting the shelves already.  The first one I have is the tall, imposing, robot K-2SO.  I have avoided spoilers so far with Star Wars - Rouge One so I can't tell you much about the character.  Even though it has Imperial markings all over it, apparently, it is a Rebel Alliance member but he (or she?) looks imposing and incredible.  K-2SO is considerably taller than most other Star Wars 3.75 inch figures.

While his limbs are thin he still seems sturdy enough to hold up to play.  Back in the old days (ie: 1983 or so) the bounty hunter robot IG-88 had a similar build but was very fragile.  I know I went through at least two in my childhood with an arm or leg randomly breaking off.  This figure seems more sturdy than that.

The Amazon product description says this - Enter the world of Star Wars and launch into action and adventure! Discover a galaxy of starships and vehicles, and get immersed in exciting stories of good versus evil against a backdrop of a universe populated by heroes and villains, droids and space creatures. Picture new galactic maneuvers and brace for mega lightspeed action with this 3.75-inch K-2SO figure from Star Wars: Rogue One! Join the fearless Rebel team with this Star Wars Rogue One K-2SO figure, a reprogrammed Imperial security droid loyal to the Alliance that proves to be 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. Experience the adventures of a new team of Rebels and the events that led to the climactic demise of the first Death Star. Relive the daring action and excitement from Star Wars Rogue One with this collectible K-2SO figure. Additional items sold separately. Hasbro and all related terms are trademarks of Hasbro.

Notice the block in the center of the back is very similar to a storm trooper making me think this figure is either imperial or at least designed by them.  a very cool look.

the slumping posture and forward sitting head only adds to this figures impressiveness.  also, notice the imperial markings on the arm.
