One Shots / “A Simpler Explanation”

Outside of ancillary literature, none of the sequel trilogy movies provided an explanation why C-3PO had a red arm coming into Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I'm inclined to think there's a much simpler explanation, one involving R2-D2, and a good serving of red paint.

Quick story. This is not the same figure I used for "The Iron Couple" that I took a couple of years ago.

It was called "Today's Robits" using a colloquial play on the word robot. And while that featurette didn't carry over the new incarnation of the blog, I might bring it … Continue reading Today’s Robots: Twelfth-Scale and a Project
