Monday Retro: Ordo Malleus Inquisitor

With all of this recent talk about new codices for Demon Hunters and Grey Knights, I felt compelled to share one of my favorite Citadel figures.
Originally this Ordo Malleus Inquisitor sold in store shelves in a three-pack blister.  I've searched high and low, but am unable to find this Demon Hunter, or his com padres, on Stuff Of Legends. What I have always admired about this figure was it's powerful, yet symmetrical pose; you'd think he was about to leap up, off the ground and smote some vile Demon.  His sword almost resembles some sort of bio-mass weapon ala Tyranid- isn't it weird that there is no Ordo iconography on the Inquisitor or his sword? That last observation leads me to believe this is an early figure- (1990-93)?
Many people in the States are enjoying a holiday, today- the perfect opportunity to bust out those old models or games for a little nostalgia. Better yet, find someone you know to share that old model or game with!
Likewise, if you have any information on this miniature pictured (or his two buddies), don't hesitate to share!
