Star Wars Episode 6: Return of the Jedi - Vader Is Supposed to Be More Machine Than Man
Forward to the battle between the emporer and vader. When Vader picks up the emporer, pause and slowly shuttle forward, watching the 'light' on vader's suit. When lightning hits, you see a clear outline of a full human skeleton. Not to bad for a cyborg whose mechanical parts refuse to show up on x-ray. :) Look at his hand when he gets it cut off. According to the cross section, the x-ray of the arm is totally incorrect.

The X ray skeleton could have a deeper meaning. Flashback to when ObiWan says that Vader is more machine now than man, twisted and evil. Obviously Vader is very much a machine. The lightning x ray happens when Vader suddenly developes a conscience and saves Luke by killing the emperor. The x ray skeleton could represent Vaders transformation and redemption. Just a thought.

If you have a decent VCR and follow the battle Frame by frame you will see that there is quite a few mechanical parts in Vader....you can also see the pain and shock he goes through each time he gets blasted by the Emporer....at one point you can clearly see that his arm is mostly mechanical.

Vaders head and torso are human, only his arms and legs are mechanical, When the lightning hits him you can only see the outlint of his skull, this is not a slip up.

When Obi Won says "more machine than man", he is reffering to Vader's personality. As for his skeleton, he is wearing a life support suit. his torso, head and limbs (with the exception of his mechanical hand) and sort of hooked up to the suit, like a cyborg.

I completely agree with XFuge97 on the skeleton thing. I think that it was showing Vader's redemption and transformation back to a more "human" person. Of course, you could also take it as only his legs or arms or both are mechanical, and the rest isn't. (Me, I prefer the philosophical reason.) ^_~

Sorry, I don't see anything wrong with that x-ray effect. When Vader is put into his suit (after the fight on the fire-planet), his right hand is cut off as well as both legs, the latter at the last fight with Obi-Wan. The other wounds were just burns. So what is wrong about a human skeleton in his upper body and his left arm?

What's wrong with somebody's skull being shown in skeletal view? He may be "more machine than man", but it doesn't mean his head isn't "screwed on just right", so to speak. In other words, his head isn't a machine, just his limbs. His lungs can be argued as being "machine" because he obviously can't breathe on his own anymore, which is why he''s in the life-support suit to begin with (after his unfortunate "accident" on Mustafar in Revenge of the Sith).

XFuge97 may be right. It DOES make an odd sort of sense.

I don't think this is a slip-up. Lucas would have had to deliberately put the X-Ray view in, it was no accident. This probably means that what people have said about it meaning Vader's redemption could be right.

I take a different view. In addition to Vader's redemption, I think the super-imposed image of the skeleton also symbolizes Vader's impending death.

Why does the lightning make his skeleton show, anyway? Seems cartoony to me.. and for Logan's Run fans, he's "More than machine, or man. More than a fusion of the two."
