Because the Force runs strong in his family? I don't know, it doesn't seem like the process would be that puzzling: part A is a helmet, part B is a face mask, part C is an actor who got replaced by Hayden Christensen as a CG ghost at the end of the flick.

I figure if you're able to pilot an X-Wing Fighter, a Rebel Snowspeeder, an Imperial Speeder bike, plus build your own lightsaber from scratch, figuring out the latches on Vader's helmet should be fairly easy...

Maybe such face mask/breather units are fairly common in the Star Wars Universe...

On a similar note: concerning Lord of the Rings....

If Gandalf could summon and ride eagles, and Sauron had no air power to speak of at the beginning of the trilogy, why didn't he just hop a bird out to Mt. Doom with the ring in his pocket, toss that thing into the volcano, and be back to the Shire in time for afternoon tea?

Oh, yeah, and how about King Kong?

You're a primative people, and you want to keep the jurrasic horrors away from you, so you build a huge wall... but then you build it with a gate big enough for them to get through?

Besides, Kong routintely scales a sheer cliff to get to his lair. Is a wall going to stop him? I think not.

Plus, you're on the expidition to Skull Island... you find an incredible, lush prehistoric world filled with dinosaurs, giant insects and the like... and you take home the gorilla?

that would be fun to see in a movie though!

I think it said "to release mask press here" on the side of the helmet, if you zoom in close enough you'll see

As for LOTR-Gandalf isseu> If Gandalf would take the ring the results would have been devastating, he said so in the beginning of the movie

IN King-Kong the fence had electric wiering, and they took the gorrilla because they saw what heppened in Jurassic PARK 3 when you take home a T-Rex
