C-3PO Okay, C-3PO  fans, you know you’ve had one burning question ever since you watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens. No, it’s not who Rey’s parents are  (we know we’re gonna get the answer to that one)… It’s not who is Supreme Leader Snoke is (hopefully, he’s really fifteen feet tall!)… It’s not even how Kylo Ren got all that hair in that helmet (though that’s a question that begs to be answered)… No, it’s how did C-3PO get his red arm?!

 

Find out this March as the burning question is answered in STAR WARS SPECIAL: C-3PO #1! Today, Marvel is pleased to present your first look inside this highly anticipated special.
