Just in case you need proof as to why Hot Toys puts out some of the best looking Star Wars figures around, we’ve got final product shots for the soon-to-be released 1/4 scale Darth Vader figure based on his appearance in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.

This dude stands 19″ tall, and comes with a boatload of accessories and exclusive methods of display if you opt for the Special Edition of the figure. He’ll cost you though, as he clocks in at $575 for the primo edition, and $560 for the standard. Based on the gallery below though, he truly is a work of poseable art.
