On The Shelf: #C-3PO and the Red Arm


If you have seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens and with the amount of money it has made at the box office I am sure you have.  In the film and the images on social media we see that C-3PO has a new red arm.  In the film C-3PO actually mentions to Han Solo “You probably don’t recognize me with my red arm”, but of course Solo has no interest.  The problem is that WE are curious and will have to wait until February for the answer.

The Single Shot of Star Wars C-3PO written by James Robinson and artist Tony Harris brings us the tale of “golden rod” an adventure leading up to his C-3PO’s appearance in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which reveals what led to this change in appearance.



“That’s a really exciting part of doing this story,” says Robinson. “I saw a photo of C-3PO with his red arm the other day and I thought ‘Wow, I’m the writer who gets to explain that.’”

Star Wars Special: C-3PO 1 one shot is set for a February 24, 2016 release date
