Darth Vader

Vader emerges from his meditation chamber.  

I have long wondered what he does in there.  I imagine it's the universes coolest gaming console.  Or maybe it's soundproof, so he can cut loose and listen to tween pop songs while oohing-and-ahing at kitten videos online.  Or maybe it's a combination hot tub and margarita machine!  ...Yeah, I know it's probably a 360-degree virtual pornsphere, but I want to give a guy the benefit of the doubt.

And besides, I have to be careful what I say about Lord Vader.  This guy can strangle someone who mildly displeases him from across galaxies.  I know that now he's just a floating spirit or whatever, and he's supposedly all redeemed and nice and junk. But I don't want to push my luck.

Vader may very well be my first icon of awesome. My parents tell me that Star Wars was the first movie I ever saw. And "forever did it dominate my destiny."  One of the best baddies of all time.

Chestplate by Hebrew washing machine scrapyard. I'm not even kidding. The first Vader costume was seriously cobbled together from junk, including a washing machine coin slot. The Hebrew words were the inspiration for "Sith Script" which was used for the following costumes. And the words became a prophecy, instead of I'm guessing "Linens and Delicates."

In his meditation chamber, he tries to breathe without his helmet. In the book Shadows of the Empire, he uses the dark side to force his lungs to work again through his anger, it worked one time and he was happy, which disrupted the anger he was using to make him breathe, so then he stopped breathing, and needed the helmet.

I think he uses his meditation chamber to take his mask off for a while so he can breathe or something, I remember seeing glimpses of unmasked Vader in the original trilogy in scenes when he's getting out of the chamber.

wow.he literally is towering over the viewer making you feel as small as a bloody ant.
Absolutely perfect. Well done.

And you and I must be about the same age, Steve, since the original "Star Wars" movie was one of the first movies I saw and I was only five.
