New Republic Security Droid
Review by JoshB
The New Republic Security Droid was featured on Chapter 6 of the Mandalorian, when a bunch of them were staffing a prison transport. I always get excited when I see new droids in the Star Wars universe.
This droid has no particular connotation, but it is an N5 sentry droid. Unlike K2SO, no distinct personality was on display, making them more like drones than characters.
He does have a bit of similarity with the K2 series, so its possible that the K2 line was an imperial predecessor. The long lanky limbs are very reminiscent of the other droid.
The figure is pretty great, with fantastic detail and sculpt.
The droid comes with a pistol, but there's no holster or attachment point for it. It's a DH-17 - not one of my favorites, but it will do.
As an aside - If you are making a security droid, why not BUILD THE WEAPONS INTO IT? The blaster gets destroyed, or knocked out of his hand, and he's useless. Ah well...
With these lanky droids, articulation is amazing.
The head is interesting... It's an odd shape for a Star Wars droid, but it's fine. Lots of nice detail all around. The neck is double jointed. A lot of love went into designing this toy and making it fun and cool looking.
