I almost think I remember that. I know I saw the Anakin and Fett (pictured on the back) They're not 12" like the Collector series or Action Collection; they're more like the Applause vinyl figs. I saw them around Christmas at Wal-Mart. I don't remember seeing a Vader (may have actually been 'rare'?), but, I did see the others shown on  the back.

It's the Hasbro 10" vinyl figure line.  The Vader is definitely the most scarce.  The assortment consists of Darth Vader, Anakin Skywalker (AOTC), Mace Windu, and Jango Fett with removable helmet.

These have been showing up at stores like Suncoast, Sam Goody, etc.

For some reason, I always thought the vinyl figs were 12" too. Scared me for a minute. Thought I was missing something. I assume these figures do not have articulation and are more statuesque. Thank you for enlightening me Nicklab. It was starting to make me a little bit crazy...

I just saw the Mace and Jango at WM the other day.  Kinda cool but like you said no articulation.  A lot like the Applause figurines.

Yep, I've seen them at Wal MArt too, Jango, Mace, Anakin and Vader.  I'm passing and wondering why they decided to release these at all???
