WTB complete C3PO kit: new/used/unfinished but complete large adult


I am looking to buy a COMPLETE C3po kit, unassembled or otherwise, similar to GOLDEN GRILL's post on 11 23 2015. ONLY high quality components desired. Large adult male (5'10 to 6'). Thanks.

Hi, bigdroid, and welcome to the forum!

  Currently, the only high-quality C-3PO parts are made by TK409 (The admin of this forum), and they are parts of great quality. Unfortunately, this costume is a good deal of work to acquire and produce, and also takes a great deal of dedication and research. The only drawback (If price isn't an issue) is the 12 month wait time for them; Though, they are well worth the wait. tk409.com/c3poparts

StarbuckCyclon sells a great resin head kit, hands, and shoes. MonCal also sells hands and feet, but also makes great shorts.

Greeblies and other fantastic detail components are made by Gordon Tarpley, and can be found on his Shapeways store. shapeways.com (search for "C3PO")

You have to make your own belly wires and other "soft" parts (undersuit), as no one sells these.

Chroming (vacuum-metalization or spray chroming are the only available options) is rather expensive, and is difficult to look just right. You can't use "chrome" spray paint -- the cap (which is vacuum-metalized) is a lie, and the paint looks like garbage.

I hope this helps!

Thanks much for your response. I do understand the difficulty and expense, but I was hoping to find someone that, for one reason or another, was not able to complete the project after acquiring the parts.

Once in a blue moon, a partial kit will pop-up on here, but usually they run upwards of $4000. Keep a sharp eye on the forum, and good luck to you!
