    Question Ever Notice that C3PO's leg is Sliver?

    Was at the park last night and rode star tours (My first time in a year or so) and I noticed that his leg is STILL sliver! (sorry- no Picture) Its been like this for a VERY long time now, as long As I can remember. Now i head a rumor that disney cant update or fix this ride because George lucas isnt happy with how the ride is now?????? Like I said RUMOR. This Poor ride needs some TLC. Anyways just thought I would share. Any thoughts?

    NO DOUBT SUMMER 09 TOUR!

    Can you post a pic? I think in the movie it might be silver although I don't know for sure.

    I don't have a pic, but it's been silver on the ride for as long as I can remember, so I'm pretty sure it's on purpose.

    Here's one. The Tatooine sand makes it look a little gold, but you can definitely tell the difference:

    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Silver leg aside, the ride does need some TLC. I don't think it'll happen this late in the game, because a refurbishment for little old Star Tours seems kind of pointless, but upgrades to new screens and props could make it look amazing. HD screens on a motion ride? Mmmmm.

    Quoting from issue 119 of Starlog Magazine, printed in June 1987, an article written by Imagineers Bruce Gordon, David Mumford, and Chris Tietz:

    Everyone at WDI was well aware of the "sanctity" of the Star Wars mythology, and every effort was being made to keep Star Tours as faithful as possible, right down to duplicating the silver right leg C-3PO sported in the films (an important part of Lucas' concept that droids are built from standard "replaceable" parts -- though they're not always available in the right color.)

    By the way... the word is spelled Silver, not Sliver.
