TK409 Parts Measurements


I was wondering if anyone who owns TK409 armor would mind measuring their pieces for me. I would like to know the measurements of the small torso, and the legs (top to bottom and circumference, please).

Thanks!

Wow, thank you very much! This will help phenomenally. Now, to wait for the legs... The legs are my main concern. I'm only 5'5", and just over 104lbs.

You should fit the legs no problem in terms if diameter. I can measure mine but I expanded the thigh tops a bit. At 5 foot 5, my concern might be the overall length of the legs and making sure your legs are long enough to fit inside. Otherwise they will be too long and will bind up.

If you could measure just from top to bottom, I would appreciate it. You're absolutely right, as to my legs not being long enough. Aside from draining my wallet, that's my only concern.

Hi,
I was wondering if someone as tall as 6 feet could fit in the c3po armor?

Hi there, LoSNSS.

       Height isn't as much of an issue as mush as diameter is, if you get what I'm saying. Six feet might be a but too robust to fit inside the suit without looking horribly stretched and disproportional around the waist/shorts area. If your waist size is more than 34" at the maximum, you would have to make a good deal of modifications to the legs in order to fit inside the suit without losing circulation in your appendages! The suit is not meant for a great big person -- Anthony Daniels himself isn't very large at all. The issue in this thread is that I just may be being slightly too small in my torso to look as screen-accurate as possible, being as I'm only about 5'6" (barefoot, and good posture).
