    Hello all members. I just wanted to show of the latest two lifesize units we did.
    Note these can be altered to become wearable costumes.

    Thank you guys.... For all of your information. These C3PO's were made in the intention of beeing wearable. These can be made in Rubber material very similar to the Ridic Armor that some people own. The rubber is very firm and does not loose shape or detail. We can chrome this material if wanted and it will not Break because the chrome is flexible. We can also color the rubber in the wanted color.
    RED, WHITE, BLACK, EVEN GOLD but it will not shine as good so i advice to weather the versions that are colored.
    Also this will give you more comfort while wearing and you will not risk anything Breaking. Or it can all be done in Glassfiber.

    I BETT if i had aplied Tape to the unit and deliverd it like that I WHOULD get in big problems :D
    This is what i mean about accuracy...... If i do it i will get killed. If i dont ... Some jackass :D (Just Kidding) comments on it :p

    Great work.

    I just wanted to add that I had the privilege of seeing a real suit up close (Cingular Wirless Commercial) and noticed that the "pants" section was made out of a rubber material. Every thing else appeared to be made out of a harder material; probably fiberglass.

    I recall Daniels keeping his arms in a vertical position to avoid breaking the torso piece.

    Yes your are indeed correct. You can in fact se it VERY CLEARLY on the Photo of C3PO beside K3PO. You will se the Pant of the K3PO Bending over the leg if you look at the pic above. This shows they used Rubber for the Pant.
    But they did have a Stunt C3PO in rubber.

    All I am saying is that we can make it in rubber or in glassfiber or a mix.
    But if chromed and its rubber parts we do advice that its done all with the Rubber chrome because if its done with normal chrome method then the rubber and the chrome will break.

    All I want people to know is that the Rubber version detail wise will look as good as a glassfiber version. But with the Rubber version you will have to fear of breaking parts because if you hit something it will not crack or break. Also if you put to much tension in one area because you try to stop a fall or a incident the flexibility of the Rubber will allow you to move with allot more movement instead of restricting you. If you also look at this version you will se that the size of the parts are proportioned correctly and is not like the Disney version.

    Excellent work TMP, they look great. Wouldn't mind having one of those standing in my living room... would be even more cool if it actually worked. :)

    Though, one thing I noticed - not just on yours - but only C-3POs shin is silver or chrome, not also the foot. You can see what I mean in the picture you posted with C-3PO and the white protocol droid in the first post. It's a common mistake many make when painting their C-3POs, I have noticed many do it. Not a critique, just an observation.

    Keep up the good work. Very impressive.

    Actually, sometimes in the OT his foot is silver, too. They were inconsistent.

    Nice droids..

    They all look great. I like the K3-PO.

    Just for ref, though, that R3-PO isn't the one from ESB. He was just a plain red colour, with none of the fancy silver / black details.

    Your a bit wrong there. The details are like the one show. You even se the reffrence them dressing him up as well as you se the photos in the dictionary.

    Chest up to 40"
    Waist up to 34"
    Upper arm 14.5 " round
    Lower arm we can adapt to customer
    Thighs up to 23" round
    lower leg can be adapted
    Feet size 8 UK, 8.5 USA/ Canada Snug fit, 42 Europe

    All dimensions have about a 2" extra to add, if needed.

    No, that R3PO really isn't from ESB. I think he has some connection to The Phantom Menace, although I'm not sure he actually appears in any of the films.
    You can see a photo of the ESB R3PO on TK409's ref picture site - http://www.jeffcohost.com/~tk409/c3po/othe...r-3po/r-3po.jpg. I have a much better picture at home which I can post if you like, but you can see from that it has no silver detailing on it.

    But like I said, great work on the droids.

    GREAT WORK GUYS...

    terryhan is right though, the red droid R-3P0 you beautifully made was in Ep. 1, in the senate. ThatÂ’s the guy they are dressing in the pics you posted- for Episode 1. The Hoth hangar red Protocol droid was all red, with no chrome detailing.

    Again, NICE WORK. :thumbsup

    Thank you all for your kind comments. As far as the rubber chrome that many have asked photos of.. Well its at the chromers and its said to be done. All we need is to pic it up and once we have it we will show photos of how the chrome bend without breaking.

    In progress now is a Glassfiber C3PO with Chrome Paint. We used it before on one of our erliest unit. I seen these have got popular because chrome it self is expensive and the chrome paint will look good. What we will do with this is first plain gold then we will weather it up and make it look like a Dessert style.

    After that we will show a Rubber version.
    We just want to show that it is possible.
