Report: C-3PO Will Have A New Arm In 'The Force Awakens'

It seems as though a classic Star Wars character will be getting a new look in The Force Awakens. Last month photos of some Episode VII merchandise leaked, specifically a table and some chairs adorned with imagery of various characters from the films. Some of which featured C-3PO, R2-D2 and BB-8. Some fans pointed out at the time that Threepio's left arm looked red in color, but most of us assumed that the picture was simply distorted. Fast forward to today, Jedi News' Marc Zachacki just tweeted a photo of a soda can he apparently acquired in Mexico. The image on the can appears to be the same one on the merchandise, only now we can see it much clearer. It appears Threepio does indeed have a red arm.
Now you're probably wondering why C-3PO's left arm is red. And believe me, I'm as clueless as you are. But I think this, among many other things, are a sign of the times. The new Stormtroopers, the redesigned X-Wings, Threepio's arm, and even the fact that Han Solo is now wearing a jacket instead of a vest, are all visual cues that suggest a lot has happened since we last saw our heroes. It's been thirty years since Return Of The Jedi, it would be odd if things weren't different. So perhaps prior to The Force Awakens Threepio has an accident and requires a new arm, but no gold replacements are available? All we can do is speculate until Episode VII hits theaters December 18th!
