Star Wars C-3PO one-shot comic book cover cropped

A few weeks ago, new photos were released for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, one of which featured the famous droids R2-D2 and C-3PO. The image confirmed that the latter droid will have a red arm in the film (a feature that was spotted in early merchandising). At the time, everyone wondered why the golden protocol droid had one red arm, but as we all know, director J.J. Abrams keeps his “mystery box” securely closed.

Now, it turns out we will soon find out how C-3PO got that new red arm in Star Wars Special: C-3PO #1, a new one-shot comic book from Marvel that’s part of the Journey to Star Wars: The Force Awakens program that will see 20 new stories in various formats (books, comics, and activity books, and more) leading up to the new movie.

It’ll be just like Beggar’s Canyon back home!

The t-shirt deal of the day over at RIPT Apparel is the Star Wars-inspired “Droid Drive In.”

The tee, by artist Matt Wrightson, went on sale at RIPT today, Monday, January 10, 2010, at midnight CST, and will continue for 24 hours from then, and once it’s over, it will not be sold on the site anymore.

The design features the C-3PO character from the Star Wars franchise. The golden droid is at the Beggar’s Canyon drive-in, which boasts that it’s “Serving all kinds” (droids have some trouble getting served, especially on Tatooine, where Beggar’s Canyon is located). The droid is standing in front of a landspeeder, a popular vehicle on the sand planet, and judging by the hat he’s wearing and the tray he’s carrying with a burger and fries on it, it appears that C-3PO is a server at this drive-in.

Bon Jovi - Star Wars Christmas AlbumJon Bon Jovi.

He’s a huge star now, but back before he got his big break in the music industry in the early 1980s, the singer was sweeping floors for cash at his cousin’s recording studio, where they just so happened to be making Christmas In The Stars: Star Wars Christmas Album. During the making of the album, the young Bon Jovi got a chance to make his first professional recording on the song, “R2-D2 We Wish You A Merry Christmas.”

Listen to the song here below. It’s SO good. Trust me, just one listen and you will not only love it, you won’t be able to stop listening to it. R2-D2 makes an appearance on the track, as does Anthony Daniels as C-3PO.
