Young Star Wars Fan Gets Prosthetic Arm Delivered By Darth Vader

by Brandon Davis


Nine-year-old Gateway Elementary School student, Alvin Flores, was born different. He's only had one arm throughout his entire life.

He and his second grade classmates were pulled from class and tossed into a surprise assembly where Darth Vader and other Star Wars characters were waiting to greet them with a very special gift. The leader of the Dark Side handed over a 3D printed prosthetic arm, much like he should have for his own son.

Alvin immediately attached the arm with the help of the 501st Legion, a Star Wars fan group, and began fist bumping Stormtroopers and even Darth Vader. "I was shocked," he told

The arm comes from Limbitless Solutions, a charity group which creates prosthetics like these to provide for kids at no cost to their families. This is very reminiscent of the time Robert Downey Jr. provided an Iron Man hand to a young fan

Congratulations to Alvin on the sweet new prosthetic. May the Force be with you, bud.
