    Wondering if those Pinewood studio shots would reveal if Alan Tudyk was part of the main Rogue landing party, and actually be a character on mission with them,
    Scouring the images seemed to reveal everyone except him. so I figured he stays on the ship, or is stationed on Yavin? Or they are just adding him full CG later sans mo-cap.
    But who is this?

    Check his feet, he's on some crazy stilts?
    Looks like his alien character will be quite tall and lanky.

    If this is being released as a lead in the first wave of figures:
    The Black droid might be Alan Tudyk's character rumored to be a mo-cap droid character

    More confirmation Alan Tudyk's character might not be an alien but a droid.

    Some charming fan attempt at concept art there.

    Implication he might be an imperial droid, the rebels re-program to assist them in stealing the plans.

    Also seems to fit the narrative of Mads Mikkelsen character not being a villain, but an imperial scientist defector, it could be his droid carrying the plans.

    MSW has been reporting him playing a droid for a while now. I'm hoping for a little HK-47 style personality.

    Hence post said more(as in not the first) confirmation , and specifically linked to MSW, where they've been referencing him as a droid.

    I'm guessing if the Mads Mikkelsen character speculation of him being an imperial scientist defector, it could be his droid who is unwittingly carrying the plans , and the Rogues are actually protecting/helping this potentially reluctant droid "escape".

    Although from his perspective he's maybe being kidnaped. LOL ;)

    Assume he's carrying the DS plans.

    From the short glimpses & limited camera angles I've seen, the droid model looks very similar to that of Super Battle Droids last seen on ATOC & ROS.

    Similar, I think he's more lanky and articulated though.

    Hopefully he has a friendlier, more expressive face, to somewhat reference Tudyk's great character expressions and personality.

    Knowing Tudyk, hopefully they play this character a bit for laughs, stuck between two sides.
    If the DS plans are indeed inside him, and the rebels can't get them out until back on their own ship, he'll become an unwitting hostage. Although with the Empire potentially having put the order to destroy him on site!:funny:
    The Rebels becoming the ones actually trying to protect him to get him out "alive".
    So he doesn't know who to trust.:p

    Checkout pictures of a Super Battledroid & you'll see what I mean, the arms & torso portion of really looks like them.

    Oddly enough you almost get a better look at him in the LEGO trailer.

    Alan Tudyk plays the CGI character K-250, an Enforcer Droid and evidently an imperial

    Being that much of the text are placeholders and that images are marked NOT FINAL
    Are people reading that as:

    K-250 or
    K-2SO (as in C-3PO)

    Looks like it does follow the more droid familiar K-2SO, as in "Kaytoo" :woot:

    "...the antithesis of C-3PO....He doesn’t give a s— about what you think.”

    LOL he sounds fun ...any relation to Bender Bending Rodríguez?[​IMG]

    Has some thin legs for such a heavy torso

    If you want a sneak peek at what we might be getting with Tudyk take a look at I, Robot. He did the mocap/voice work for the robot in that.

    Gareth Edwards - “Kaytoo is a little bit like Chewbacca’s personality in a droid’s body,”

    [​IMG] + [​IMG] = [​IMG] :)

    For an even more out-there performance also check him in 28 days, and some of his voice work too.

    I love Tudyk , he does some great character work, he's very expressive, he's got some great shoes to fill like Danials, Mayhew and others before him in "animating" what are otherwise near expressionless facades they were able to "humanize". Hear it's with mo-cap but still working with whats almost a blank exterior.

    I look forward to seeing how he brings "Kaytoo Esso" to life! and if he potentially steals this movie.:woot:

    Those lanky legs and arms... he's one creepy robot. Like a Pinocchio from a bleak dystopian future, or something. Which is... kinda what he is, actually.

    Design reminds me a little bit of the Commando Droids from The Clone Wars. Guess mainly the rounded head shape.

    So Tudyk pretty much stole the celebration panel. And it looks like his character might do the same in the movie.
    The scene where Jyn hands him the pack, and K2 just drops it there was hysterical.

    Looks like he was originally an Imperial droid, and was reprogrammed by Cassian who considers him his best friend, which seems hysterical, cause he probably a horrible friend.
    Tudyk seemed to describe him as "not quite all there", and speaks his mind that could be unsettling like a crazy old person:funny:

    Not sure if anyone has the exact quote? Or a clip of him with the pack?

    Edit:got them :woot:

    [​IMG]:hehe:

    Diego Luna: “[the droid] is probably the best friend Cassian has in the rebellion, or the only one.”

    Poor Cassian, if this is really his "best" and "only" friend, that is just hysterically tragic. :funny:

    I can't wait to see their dynamic.
