The battle between horus and the emperor, described as taking a surge of energy in the face. Melting flesh till it ran, bursting an eyeball and setting the hair alight.

So most likely an emergency bionic he recieved as he laid in life support, prior to being interred in the golden throne.

Little-known bit of lore: an intern Custodes, during his first day on the job, tripped and accidentally jabbed his spear into the Emperor's dusty old eye socket. Quick-thinking, he covered it up the gouge wound with a monocle and claimed, famously, "He was like that when I got here. I don't know what you're all going on about."

Actually, he used to have 2 of them, but then one ended up in someone's private collection... If you know what I mean

It pleases me greatly they my random thought from a piece of artwork has made 2 pages of comments.

I was under the impression that The Emperor was brought back in his damaged state and that there was no time to do any surgery on him before taking Malcadors place on the GT.

I suppose it could have been fitted after he sat down, but who would dare touch The Master of Mankind in such a way?! (unless Dorn gave permission?)

I am not impressed by the heretical, blasphemous ridicule being directed at our beloved Emperor.
I have all your names and addresses, so you will all be receiving a visit real soon by some extremely 'ard blokes in golden armour and f#ck-off halbards!
