I don't know why the logo and card weren't included, but many of these Vader figures along with the first Anakin figure and the Padme figure showed up at Canadian Walmarts around Christmas time 2 or 3 years back.

My guess is that they were screw-ups and Habro was trying to dump them.  Walmart was selling them for $6 CDN each plus tax.

As for current value, your best bet to check would be ebay... considering the stupid prices the no helmet Vader is fetching now, the error Vader "could" be worth more than the logo'd package version.

I tried to check ebay but there is no one selling this type of mistake on the figure

Hey all, as per the new Star Wars book on collecting, which you can buy at any Chapters/Indigo, these Unleashed are not variants but just a reflection of the sub-par packaging the line included in the begining, as they were not quite sure this toyline would actually catch on with it's high cost and low play value...guess they were wrong huh?

Anyway here's a link to the book I mentioned,

I'd be proud to have that in my collection!  You should cherish it...I haven't seen anything like that around...Especially with no logo or anything at the top.

A few things you can do.

1) Upload them to a free photo hosting site, I use SNAPFISH
When you go this route you can use the smaller picture when uploaded or click on the picture for the larger picture. Which ever you use right click on the picture and select properties. In the middle you see the URL address. Highlight this address(highlight and scrool down for the whole address) and copy.
Next, come here and make a post and past your copy. You must have  on the ends of the address. If you look above all the smilies you will see a row called tags: you will see a 4th button that looks like a picture. Highlight your pasted address and press this button. I will atomatically put on the ends of you image address.

2) When your in the post mode scroll down and you will see Attach: select browse and look for the images stored in your harddrive and post. These images must be a resolution of between 80-100 KB.

Your digital pictures will more than likely be large files so you will have to go into a photoshop/image program to resize and or change the resolution size. Windows has a paint program if you don't have one already.
Do your testing in the test section at the bottom of the forum page.

3) If all else fails for now send me the pics and can host them for you till you get the hang of it.

Hope that helps and if you have any more questions send me a PM.
