View Full Version : See Anakin's skeleton under Dark Side Lightning?

That totally reminded me of ROTJ. Vader knew all too well what Luke was going through. Wonder if they'll make a transparent Anakin figure? "Dooku's wrath?" - though we don't know that's not some kind of energy discharge or something else, for sure.

Using the Dark Side like that, decays an individual, like the Old Man in ROTJ, I thought, and Dooku doesn't look like the dark power has weathered him so...

Then again, neither does Palpatine in this era, so that whole notion might not hold any truth. I just assumed that if the Force was created by life, using its energy fields to kill is like using "anti-life" and the user (in Jedi, Palpatine) has to touch this anti-life as well, in order to use it. Hence, while he's killing Luke, he's slowly killing himself. In any case I thought it looked awesome and Hayden did great. (or Lucas told him if he didn't - they were really going to electrocute him if the fans got hold of him ; )

Hmm... I played it slowly and stopped it in several parts but I couldn't see his skeleton at all, I think you just saw the bolts and thought it was the skeleton... Though I very well could be wrong.

Seemed to see a skull and a breast bone (sternum) and ribs coming out. Check again. It's pretty cool!

OK, watched it again. I still saw ribs, sort of...but not when I first thought I saw him. That's the energy wrapping around the grooves in the hilt of his lightsaber...
