Episode 7 The Force Awakens See Threepio


The first images have appeared of C-3PO in the behind the scenes, his left arm and hand is a dark browny/red rust colour in at least some of the movie.

Anthony Daniels has apparently been quoted as saying,
 "I will tell you that the team then got together and built a new suit. They made an entirely new look-a-like with changes that you will never notice [on screen] that made my life a lot easier. I can get it on and off very quickly."

I think the chest has been widened , possibly lengthened and the back "box" looks further back, possibly the biceps look wider, shorts possibly changed on the front curves but I am pretty happy he is still "c3po"
 
So who is repainting their C3PO arm now? emoticon

Either the torso was lengthened, or AD's posture is changing with age. The overall appearance of the suit is looking very ANH style. The belly wires are spot on ANH, and the torso is in nearly complete contact with the tops of the shorts, as was the case in ANH. I think there's going to be an influx of orders of arms over the next few months... emoticon

New way to attach the faceplate to the back??

Left neck bolt seems to be attached to the back of the helmet.

Smooth inside...vacuum formed? 3D printed? Looks like metal but certainly due to chroming process.

Some observations:

The chest looks a little wider and ADs posture is less upright and leaned back. He's slouched forward more.

The neck ring has a formed lip where it meets under the chin.

The upper arm opening is all new.

The shins look wider and roomier.

The back slit in the shoes have elastic keeping the opening shut.

The gloves / thumb area is new.

The thighs look roomier with the shorts inside.

Slits in the shorts probably allow for more movement.

The gold looks dustier, with chrome / champagne highlights instead of the warm gold in EPIII. More Rotj toned.

Well Anthony Daniels's body is older too and changed so I guess that's why. Beside also Anthony Daniels requests on the suit have been more and more demanding over the episodes I believe...
