Darth Vader’s armor suit is a complex blend of technology, ancient sith magic, and biomechanics. It serves as both as armor suit and a life-support system to protect the amalgamation of organic flesh, synthetic organs, and mechanical limbs beneath the suit. It was just more than a means of keeping the Dark Lord of the Sith alive; it was a means to intimidate and instill fear in Darth Vader’s enemies while allowing him to face their attacks. The time when Obi-Wan met his assistant for the last time on Mustagar, he couldn’t have imagined that their fight would end with Anakin Skywalker being killed and giving rise to Darth Vader.
As impressive as Darth Vader’s suit is the cost of the suit!
