    Yes, I saw this when I got my 3D Blu-ray last week. I already wondered how they could make a Star Wars film with not at least one arm or hand severed.

    Fun scene, but how would Unkar Plutt suddenly appear in that bar on a totally different planet?

    Maybe he put a tracking device on the Falcon on Jakku?

    A good kid?

    The lad was psychotic. He massacred a village with women and children. That's before we even get to the 'younglings'. And he's prepared to kill children and close friends because a dream scared him? Padmé should have legged it as soon as he told her about the sandpeople. Makes you wonder about her though ("Padmé, I have just murdered a load of women and children" "Anankin, I love you" - the freaks deserved each other).

    Sure, there a possible explanations. But why would he go through all that trouble, just to get back that piece of garbage? I guess the only reason for that scene was to have a cool moment for Chewie. And in the end they felt it was to brutal for the tone of the movie, so they cut it out.

    I'd say it was another echo of the first Star Wars' (I can't call it "A New Hope"): the bar scene where Obi Wan cuts off the guy's arm to protect Luke. There could be many explanations as to how Unkar Plutt got there (tracking device is very likely, as he "owned" the Falcon).

    who says he was after the Falcon back?
    There is some unexplained history between the two of them.
    Maybe he knows who her parents are and how valuable she could be?

    Yes, I thought of that too.
    That's possible. But he didn't really shy away from putting her in danger when he sent some guys after BB-8. But who knows? I still suspect he mainly showed up in that scene to have his arm ripped off.

    He was a good kid when he was a slave; all the other stuff didn't happen until he started his Jedi training.
