Guardiandroid

C-3PO wearing the shell of an HK Guardian Droid.

"Oh, goodness…the empty shell of a Guardian Droid! I haven't seen one of them in ages! It's a pity they're no longer in service…their armor was quite impervious to laser fire!"
"Bwoop bweep!"
"Yes, Artoo…and when they realized nothing could harm them…they were a bit difficult to control!"
―C-3PO and R2-D2 discuss the HK Guardian Droid[src]

The HK Guardian Droid was a model of droid whose superior armor was almost impervious to blaster fire.[1] After realizing this, they became difficult to control[2] and ultimately contributed to the common prejudice against droids.[1] HKs were no longer in service by the early years of the Galactic Empire.[2]

When Lonn Idd's repair station was under attack by the Fromm Gang, the protocol droid C-3PO donned the aged shell of an HK Guardian Droid stored in a spare parts storage room, allowing him to survive a group of hover guards' light stunning blasters and destroy the sentry droids.[2]
