Did You Know…? Red-Eyed C-3PO in 1977
The image of C-3PO with glaring red eyes in the Episode 9: The Rise of Skywalker D23 Expo footage was striking, and raises many questions. Did you know, however, that that he has previously been portrayed with vermilion photoreceptors, probably just as a random artistic/printing decision, on the wrapper of the 1977/1978 bubblegum trading cards from Topps (released in New Zealand by local company Allens and Regina)?
