Timeless Dimension has revealed that Kotobukiya has released some photos of a new Star Wars ARTFX Darth Vader Return of the Jedi Edition PVC Pre-Painted Assembly Kit. This Darth Vader contains some unique light-up features. The life support panel on his chest, the lights on his belt and his lightsaber all featuring LED lights. But the most unique feature is the helmet. The helmet features a light-up mechanism that allows you to see Anakin Skywalker‘s visage inside the helmet. This is due for a September 2011 release in Japan.
Kotobukiya’s Facebook Page has posted the same photos. However they have also added some additional info. The U.S. release date is November 2011. More info after the jump.

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Kotobukiya’s amazing line of Star Wars ARTFX Statues is back, bringing the heroes and villains of the Star Wars universe to life in dynamic 1/7th scale statues. The line’s return is heralded by none other than the Dark Lord of the Sith himself in an all new presentation, Darth Vader Final Battle!
At the height of his power, Darth Vader wields his crimson lightsaber in mortal combat against anyone foolhardy enough to challenge the might of the Galactic Empire. His classic armored suit has every detail you’ve come to know and love since Return of the Jedi was first released 27 years ago. Intricate sculpting brings out the different parts of his chest piece and belt module, while Vader’s long cape flows around him in the heat of battle. Of course, the all-important iconic helmet and lightsaber were painstakingly recreated. With his knees bent and weapon extended in his right hand, Vader is ready for anything, even upstart Jedi Knights. Best of all, this amazing new version of the villain has multiple light up parts via LEDs in his helmet, chest, waist, and lightsaber!
Darth Vader stands 11 inches tall (1/7th scale) atop an exclusive Death Star panel display base. With his fantastic battle pose and light up parts he’ll be the perfect centerpiece to any Star Wars collection!
