So far the only official glimpses of characters from Star Wars: The Force Awakens have come from the teaser trailer and this year’s theatrical trailer, as well as the stylish Vanity Fair photoshoot. But with the merchandising of the newest chapter of the sci-fi saga just around the corner, we’ll be seeing much more of the characters soon enough.
In fact, a new image from a piece of Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise seems to have leaked online a little early, and it shows off a familiar character, but with one difference. The protocol droid C-3PO now has a red arm.

Meanwhile, Lupita Nyong’o plays a motion-capture character named Maz Kanata, an alien pirate.
And now director J.J. Abrams is pulling back the curtain on the production of Episode VII ever so slightly.

Star Wars Episode VII officially finished filming over the weekend. We know this both because of the note J.J. Abrams gave to crew members, and the photos and videos that appeared online from what looked to be a massive after-party. Among the attendees at the party was everyone’s favorite astromech droid, R2-D2.
