    It just dawned on me (maybe some of you have had this solved for a while), but if Anakin is "made" Vader in his early or mid twenties - than why would he appear as an old man when Luke removes his mask? Would he still age even after being made bionic?

    Ofcourse he would age, he's only human. The original remaining organic parts of Anakin would age like anyone elses. The mechanical parts would not age ofcourse

    That is true, using that outlook, I am more wondering what remains human about him? How human is Vader?

    Well, in the original outline for Vader, it was only his torso and head that remained human, the rest was machine. And even in one of the very early ideas for Vader, he had no lower jaw at all, and that is why he had the mask, but then it was seen as too gruesome. This idea was then used for Darth Malek in the game Knights if the Old Republic.

    Padme, thanks for the input; I suppose we will have to wait for the ROTS to see just how messed up Anakin gets!

    Yes you can surely know from the classics that he still has his right shoulder definatly. Cause he screamed out in pain when it was hit by Luke. And it wasn't like Luke's hand. There was no flesh around his bionic parts, you can see that when his hand is cut off in ROTJ. His skull is still completly human altho the back of his neck had bionic parts for his nerve system. There is even proof in one of Timothy Zahn's book that his shoulder was still intact altho some call it not to be cannon. Vader says that his shoulder is healed (not repaired) after the fight with Luke
