What you see here is another awesome K-2SO cosplay costume. Like the previous one we saw earlier this year, this one here is in fact a puppet and it is huge!

While companies are cashing on this common technology, design engineer Edgar Herrera decided to challenge the status quo. And what he has proposed is, imho, a slap on capitalist businesses who seek little to no innovations and taking the easy way out to milk the market.
