We know how Chewbacca managed to find C-3PO's parts after he was blown into pieces.

But how did he get them back after being captured by Vader and why would the Stormtroopers allow Chewbacca to have a toolkit and a droid in his cell?


According to Thank the Maker from Star Wars Tales Issue #6, Darth Vader had it delivered to Chewbacca's cell.

While not made explicit, it's implied that Vader wanted C-3PO to be fixed.

The comic's canon status is ambiguous, but according to Wookieepedia, it has "elements of continuity."
