Why the hell would a dark jedi need "vision enhancement receptors", "magnetic sensor pits" and "Primary envrionmental sensor", huh?

I'd assume that the various sensors would be used by the suit to regulate things based on the environment, etc, and adjust the suit accordingly.

But really, Lucas has butchered his franchise so much that it really doesn't matter.

Dave Prowse doesn't live too far from me, I see him out and about occasionally. he needs sticks to get about this days because of extremely bad arthritis, evil disease.

But Paramount and Lucasfilms might know the difference between CG News and General Discussion. :O

Actually, there's a whole series of books with pictures like these, except they are not artwork, they're photos of the actual movie props and costumes. They are called the "Visual Dictionary" and there is one for the Original Trilogy, as well as one each for Ep I, II and III. They've been doing them since Phantom Menace.

There's also a series of "cutaway" books for the vehicles, which ARE artwork. Those are pretty cool.

"Speech projector"? Is that anything like a speaker? Maybe a bullhorn?

Nice little article. I really like the Vader blog, probably the most imaginative takeoff I've seen in a while.

Is anyone else irked by the fact that in Ep.4 vader wears his robe on the outside of his chest armor, while in all the other movies with Vader, he wears his robe underneath his armor?

If he cant use the force for the lightning, why can he absorb blaster fire in TESB...?

i dont think he absorbs it, it bounces off or even if he did that still wouldnt matter becsaeu botth of his arms are mechanical.

Yeah, now I can of wonder about that, too. If the book states he can't channel lightning through his arm, then what about the force choke/grip he's famous for?

For me, I think it's better to say "yeah, he could shoot lightning from his arms, but that's not his style, he prefers choking people." It's just simplier and avoids justifiying everything scientifically.

Yeah that reason alone made me hate the entire SW series and I stopped watching films altogether!
Did anyone else notice that in EP5 that his cape had a crease at the right shoulder but then 5 seconds later that crease was totally gone! Please... creases don't go away that fast.

creases don't go away that fast.

Vader's left had doubles as a travel iron.

This is also why you never see him high-five.

you don't need arms to force choke someone. its all in the mind. i think he uses his hand to show everyone "ok, i'm the one choking that guy over there"

if he didn't, everyone would be like...

"ah Frank, you chokin'?"
"anyone know the heimlich maneuver?"
"Frank's turning blue"
"no, no. its ok everyone, Frank ordered the wrong size paper clips for Vader's stapler"
"ahh"
"thump"

Vader should use the force to kick everyone aroudn him in the nuts. Then people would be falling to their knees and it would look really impressive. The rookie storm troopers would be like "damn, look at how everyone bows before him. I heard he's tough but fair."
