Too Tall For 3PO?


I am 6'1", 165 pounds. I think that I might be too tall for a C-3PO, but wasn't sure if anyone made larger pieces (like Stormtrooper armor has a larger version).

Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome aboard, Schraeds.

While I cannot accurately judge your build by means of the interwebs, I would say that you might be slightly too large to fit in a Threepio suit. I am 5'7", 115 lbs, and it's a bit of a squeeze for me! Unfortunately, the only makers of Threepio suits make them in AD size. (That is, Anthony Daniels's size.) TK409 makes a widened version of the chest and arms, but none of the other pieces have been altered. You may stretch the proportions out a little bit far -- some of our builders (Chris Bartlett/TK409, and Simon Wilkie/SW3PO come to mind) are slightly taller than AD, and look just fine. Unfortunately, it is a VERY small suit -- even smaller than one would think.

However, if you want to build a droid -- don't let your size stop you! I've been building mine for the last two or three years, and have enjoyed (most nearly) every moment of it. Who knows, you may find it'll work out in your favour!
