Louis Koo Tin Lok in the film FOR HIS MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE (DAI NOI MUK TAM LING LING GAU) played an Imperial guard who protects the Emperor. Yet in the film Goo Jai only has his heart set on inventions. One of his favorite was a robot armor he called "Protecting His Majesty Without Fail Invincible Repel All Attack Transforming Golden Armor". Goo Jai was stunned to see this robot prop at first. When he realized that he could wear it, he thought it was exaggerated.

The heat reached 30 to 40 degrees Celsius during the shoot. Goo Jai said that the golden armor was very heavy and several people had to help him put it on. Mobility was also limited. Before any robot scene he had to drink a lot of water and go to the bathroom first. Wearing this armor in such heat was rather difficult. Goo Jai was an avid toy collector, so he had plenty of fun with this transforming golden armor. He felt like when he was watching cartoons as a child. The team even planned to give him the golden prop and Goo Jai had the impulse to take it home because it resembled a cartoon character. He did not know how to transport this real 1:1 scale version. Perhaps he was better off waiting to relive the memory when he watched the film.
