Golden Armor


Hey guys Ive been trying to get ahold of TK409 (Chris) for a few weeks now from here and his website. With no answer at all. Would like to get started on this so my son (Tre') my have it ready for all the events we have around the holidays.
I contacted the guy from Golden Armor about a month ago about an R2 and 3PO he got right back with me and said he could start right away. But the guys on Astromech warned to stay away on the R2. But what about his 3PO. I think I would rather get it from Chris but would really like to get started.

Thank you in advance
Henry & Tre'

Re: Golden Armor


I can only speak for TK 409 parts. They are great quality but they do take time to make and deliver.

I know that some 3po builders were not as happy with their Goldenarmor parts they ordered. They are vac formed plastic from the outside of a 3po as opposed to TK 409 parts which are pulled from negative molds which yields sharper detail.

I know some people on the RPF have gotten some very poor quality parts and service from him. Review thread here. I think he was banned from the RPF due to recasting

You might want to look up TMP on the RPF, I think he was doing some 3po parts too. Best to do some research before making a choice.

Re: Golden Armor


I ordered the favorite parts of my C3PO in Chris and Jim for their quality.
I ordered the C3PO shorts at Cal, but if I do not receive it soon, I cancel my order and I will buy the shorts in Golden armor !
This is the only alternative that I found to get all the parts of my C3PO and create without waiting several months for the shorts !!

Re: Golden Armor


Henry: I haven't seen Chris on the forum for sometime. I'm not sure why he isn't responding but I will ask around and see what's up. I'd keep trying or keep your eye's peeled for people selling his stuff in the parts dept. Also be sure that this stuff will fit you before you start buying if you plan to wear it. It's not made like the TK. Hope this helps.
