These came out late 2015 I think. There were 6 figures in total and they were WalMart exclusive. I was attracted to them because of their scale. I love how the 5-6" scales are becoming popular again. There have been very few military figures made in this size. The price was nice on them as well. I believe $3.96. They were still on the pegs last year, but I think are completely gone now.
I don't buy much modern stuff, but couldn't resist checking them out. I planned to post about them last year when I picked them up, but never got around to it. I only found a pic of these 3 and the backer.
I'm not a fan of the angular body sculpts and cartoony style, but overall they are really nice. Ball-joint shoulders & legs, swivel elbows, knee/waist/neck articulation. Each comes with a different weapon that fits perfectly in their hands. Aside from the style, other cons were some waists were pretty loose and spinny, and two of the figures came with a bent elbow on one arm that seemed like it was meant to hold a large weapon, but didn't and just looked awkward (#3 in the picture below).
I kept the two stockier fellows and they display nicely with my Remco's.
I noticed there is a small slot on their back. Perhaps they were going to be electronic figures or were to have more accessories and they changed their mind to make them cheaper.
