Threepio never knew he had it in him.
This is a reference to a scene from “Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi” where C-3PO was used to convince a village of Ewoks that he is a god, with the special assistance of The Force being wielded by Luke Skywalker, of course. Here, I am implying that it was Rey who was wielding it.
Those golden props were borrowed from a Series 15 LEGO Minifigure, “Flying Warrior”. I immediately had this idea of using it for C-3PO the moment I was able to “feel” the minifigure in the packaging. That’s actually how you get these collectible minifigures; they come in “blind bags”, meaning they are unmarked as to what is inside so you have to rely on your fingers to feel the parts out to get the right character. I am getting good at doing that feel thing.
Until the next time then; talk to you all soon.
