Why does he have a bionic eye?
 
The Emperor ... on the Golden Throne. I'm not sure why he has one as he was meant to be in such a bad state when he returned from the VS that he technically wouldn't have had time to get one fitted.

Right?!

Decoration. Some time after the Emperor was enthroned, his custodes came to believe that the poor fellow looked a bit dour, so they decided that a bit of sprucing up might turn that eternal frown upside down. Didn't work, though; as it turned out he's just a cranky S.O.B.. There's just no pleasing some people.

Not something I'd ever thought of before. But now you mention it......

Maybe they wanted to install a second one in the first place, but then they couldn't afford it for budgetary needs (money is a real issue in an universe where a guy just sits on a throne of gold, believe it or not), so they just went for the "old One Eye look"

Maybe the Emperor had suffered an injury (or some other reason to add the bionic eye) previously and the eye was of such fine craftsmanship it wasn't obviously a bionic until, well, the rest of him rotted away?

Well he was not a rotten corpse going onto the golden throne, Horus ruined one of his eyes as well a lot of the rest of him, I'm sure his minions did their best to patch him up before placing him on the throne, also some artwork does not show him with a bionic eye. Also the emperor can still communicate with people albeit rarely and may have wanted a bionic eye to survey the real world or people who have access to him while the majority of his body decayed

rule of cool. simple as that. some art has it with the bionics, others don't.

They should just have done with it and get him a chair like Prof Hawkins :)

Now I'm sitting in my room and trying to imagine Professor Hawkins wearing the Emperor's armour. You made my day man

And now imagine him leading the Great Crusade.... :laugh:
