Ever since that first glimpse of C-3PO on those leaked merchandise photos a while back, fans have been wondering how he ended up with the crimson limb…was his arm destroyed in battle? Did he forsake his own advice and not let Chewbacca win at a game of dejarik? Was it an intentional replacement with updated tech that we will see put to good use in the new film?  Well, they’re not going to leave those questions hanging in the air it seems.


Robinson had the following to say regarding his excitement for the new comic:


“That’s a really exciting part of doing this story…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.'”
