Special Offer Darth Vader Collector's Case (32 Figures on Back) with IG-88, Bossk, & Boba Fett
Though not released as part of Kenner's Department Store Program promotion, this Vader Case was originally a retailer incentive to offer special products to attrack sales or "Rocket Your Profits!" (as Kenner's marketing slogan went.) This piece was released in 1980 and included the three Bounty Hunters to make an extremely cool themed piece. It oddly does not appear in any Kenner literature for the Special Offer releases. 32 figures are pictured on the cardboard sleve's back suggesting this was very early in the Empire Strikes Back line and was one of the first Vader Cases to hit the shelf.

The action figures were included inside in simple Kenner bags. This is one of the rarest Special Offer pieces and one of the rarest of all production Star Wars items. The 1981 version of this case included Darth Vader, Luke Bespin and Yoda on a 41 back sleve and can be found here.
