LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens will give you answers on C-3PO's red arm
There had to be a hook to LEGO STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS that would be greater than simply being a new STAR WARS adventure explored through the creativity and humor of the LEGO video game model.
And, of course, there is - more information.

Speaking to Game Informer, Mike Taylor (head of design at TT Fusion) explains some of the freedom they've been given to explore these unexplored elements of the new film.
It's pretty mind-blowing really to think that we've had the opportunity to do that. It's fantastic to be able to look at all these fantastic new characters from The Force Awakens and speak to Lucasfilm about how we can sort of look into their backstory and how they've been led to the events of The Force Awakens, I still struggle to believe that it's actually possible to do that.
We've covered or are in the process of covering some pretty significant events that happen before the film that give people more information about why certain things in The Force Awakens happened and why certain characters have ended up where they are. It's pretty amazing.
Don't expect big mysteries to be solved - like Rey's parentage, how Maz Kanata got her hands on Luke's lightsaber, why Luke disappeared, etc. - but it's the quest to get answers to the smaller tidbits to further round out the STAR WARS Galaxy that is sure to have fans buying up copies left and right later this year.
LEGO STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS will be available wherever video games are sold on June 28, 2016.
