about Lust, it reminds me of Greed in the manga when King bradley met him in the sewers: first i thought Greed was already dead,but then i realized he was just paralyzed by being nailed in his oruboru tatoo. i think it is the same for homonculi in the anime, and so Lust is paralyzed not yet dead.

Fist, in the ep43, winry called hohenheim ,"Uncle" because there is not a good word to use in English. He called with the term "Ogi Sama" that represents older man (middle aged man around 30s and 40s). She called Hohenheim with respect. -sama in Japanese used for a person who are in higher position.
Second, Hohenheim mistaken winry with her mother, Sara. And, he said, you gotten taller! I think this guy was not around when Winry was born. Most of all, I think Hohenheim seems to see Winry's mother as child figure. No one uses a sentence "you've gotten taller" towards person in his or her age. Comparing Ed and Winry's age, Hohenheim should have similar age as Sara. so, it was interesting part in ep 43.
This is anime. There is no deep plot. Rose worders how Hohenheim knows things before train was used. Some people in forum does not believe about Hohenheim being over 100 years old. But, it is a hint given by story maker of FMA. Dude is over 100 years old.
I think Dante is famous alchemist and Hohenheim is famous, too. They both interested in human alchemy. Remember, Al and Ed performed human alchemy based of Hohenheim's calculation in his book.
Dante should be over 130 years with out any more arguments. She is monster. Hopefully, she remains dead.
As I already said, previously, I do not want to see another Orochimaru in FMA
One more thing, Lyla is not Envy. Lyla operate the alchemy to weaken Greed. Remember Homuculus suppose not be able to use alchemy for some reasons.
Wrath has one weak point. Wrath seems to have a problem with baby's cry. He was losing himself. There must be a weak point of Wrath within this evidence.
I do not believe they can find bones or remains of all homunculus. Envy should be at least over 130 years. This guy is old dude who does not even remember his original form.

If you remember correctly, Greed was also over 140 years old. And so is Gluttony. However, they had Greed's bones. Not entirely sure who would have either Gluttony's or Envy's bones... but... Hrm. Same goes for Pride.

In the manga, Wrath(King Bradley) is only 60+ years old so yes, he is the youngest Homunculus.
In the anime since Greed knows Pride, it must be before Greed was sealed, hence making Pride(King Bradley) at least 130 years old (or 140, another plot hole on the age).
Wow those Amestris fellas must be real daft not to notice that their leader looks the same for 130+ years In fact, Dante being 130+ years and not becoming the legendary old woman is also very surprising. *cough plot holes, plot holes, cough*
I severely doubt that Bradley was Fuhrer for 130 years. Now THAT would be completely and totally farfetched.
Dante, I'm not sure. I could come up with something pointlessly elaborate to cover that up, but I am far too lazy right now.
Yes of course that would be too far fetched but he had to be Fuhrer before the Ishval war because he ordered it, which means he had to be in there for some years. Now he certainly cannot rise to Fuhrer in just only a few years which means he must age naturally in that time he's with the army. But 130+ years means either he ages slowly (not likely judging from current bunch of Homunculus, and the manga's Bradley was designed to age) or he ages not one bit at all (Gluttony certainly shows no signs of aging).
And regarding Dante, if it involves us fans to create "elaborate" explanations drawing upon lots of self-created fictional elements instead of facts shown in the anime to explain that situation, then that really shows the anime crews' flaw in setting up that situation.

(I used the name Wendy on purpose )
you know, That made me imagine funimation changing winry's name to wendy...*shudders*but i didn't see the english first episode, and i don't remember if winry was even mentioned then but... ><
A bit off topic here but...
At first I thought they may have intended Wendy. Winry is pretty close as you can get to Wendy in Japanese because there is no "dee" sound in Japanese. (Or else maybe Wenji which is awful sounding). But it is Winry, because the official site says so:

I think Lyla is Dante guys. Think about it. If Dante could keep switching bodies, she could concievably live longer than 130 years. She's a master alchemist so maybe she figured out how to transmute her soul into others' bodies. Could that be possible?
I wonder how Al feels that he has the deaths/souls of nearly 1000 people in his body. I mean, Al is so sensitive, how can that sit well with him at all? Didn't the Elric brothers want to figure out a way of making the stone WITHOUT killing people? Its almost anti-climactic to me.
