Description
After Darth Vader slices Luke Skywalker's hand off during their duel at Cloud City, a surgical droid gives Luke a bionic hand...which will be damaged when it is shot during the Sarlacc Pit battle. Seeing his own gloved hand will ultimately remind him of his own transhumanist transformation at the end of Return of the Jedi, and he spares his father's life.
