    Thing is Darth Maul was only in one movie where he didn't show much and has already been shown alive in the EU before, while Vader has been in four and him being alive really cheapens his sacrifice in ROTJ. A flashback or Force vision would be best like you said.

    I don't think we've gotten any real flashbacks in the movies thus far so I think a hologram recording would make the most sense. Or maybe force ghost Anakin dons his armor just for shits and giggles.

    The whole idea of SW spin-off movies is crap. Especially that they don't happen in the same timeline of the new trilogy, but sometime before the OT, like the Han Solo movie. The moviegoers are going to be confused as hell

    If we absolutely have to have Stormtroopers, then yes let's go with the original version. If the movie is about the remnants of the Empire, I have a problem with the idea that whatever pieces of the Empire are still there can still muster up what is needed to develop new armor. You'd think they'd have to scrounge up every bit of junk they can use like the Rebel Alliance had to.

    I thought of a way Vader can be in the new movie.

    Just because the Death Star/Palpatine/Vader died, it doesn't mean the Empire is gone. Its a galaxy wide organization and most of it wasn't at Endor.

    What if most news of Endor was classified. Not even sure if anyone in the Empire even knows 100% Vader is dead. Sure the rebels might have reported it (based on Luke saying he was dead) and a few troops saw Luke dragging his body on DS2. They just know Vader didn't show up at a Empire base afterwards.

    So what if an Imperial commander wants to bring back the idea of Vader as a moral booster for the Empire. The troops are bolstered thinking the Rebels didn't win and their leader is still around. He just recreates the suit and someone else is in there.

    It would also bring fear to systems not being loyal to the Empire anymore if people think Vader is still out there.

    Not a fan. The black all the way around doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

    Neither does armor that can't protect against laser fire, or even arrows and spears, but at this point, we just go with it.
