YOU WILL BOW BEFORE SKELETRON

Apologies for the teensy picture. What is the deal with Anakin's replacement hand? C-3PO's hands look better than that! I know they want to show how technology advances between this movie and Empire, but I think they overdid it. I mean, in just a couple years they will be able to give him full-on, meaty artificial limbs, so would it have killed them to throw some flesh on that thing?

And on his wedding day, really.

I don't think I've properly conveyed the Awesomeness of this one. But I am just one man.

A replacement shot of the hand was one of the elements fudged between the original theatrical release and the DVD (though I understand the new shot may have appeared in some digitally projected versions, as well).

Either way, it sounds like C-3P0 when it moves.

So this is the one from the DVD? Like what did the theatrical hand look?

Same Look, Different Animation by CheeseburgerBrown (4.00 / 1) #3 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 10:32:51 AM EST
The hand in the original cut looked the same, but it didn't move...it just kinda hung off his arm like a glove full of marbles. With all the reflections it was pretty hard to discern what it was supposed to be.

I have a VCD of it around here somewhere...it'll post a snapshot if I come across it in my travels through my laboratorium.

Maybe it was a training hand by ShadowNode (4.00 / 2) #4 Thu Jun 09, 2005 at 12:32:38 PM EST
For him to get used to the cyborwhatsits interfacing with his midicloreans.

Luke had a robotic hand. Anakin's hand was just scraps of metal held together by the Force and controlled with his mind.

Looked robotic to me... by ShadowNode (2.00 / 0) #7 Fri Jun 10, 2005 at 08:25:23 AM EST
And it's not unreasonable to think they significantly shortened the training time for robotic appendages over 20 some years.
