JAPAN MINIATURES SERIES 5

Corinthian Japan Miniatures Series 5 was a real mixed and varied release, it had figures from the English Premier League, Scotish Premier League and also the Italian Serie A.


Miniatures Series 5 consists of 35 different figures, with quite a lot of them featuring in other releases, however it also contained some new figures and chasers too! The chaser figures of Emre and Miccoli are of course very rare, with the extension chaser figure of Pavel Nedved in Juventus Third kit being even rarer and is seldom seen for sale.



14 of the figures were also released in UK Series 08, which are Ryan Giggs, Damien Duff, Edu, Dietmar Hamann, Craig Bellamy, Mikael Silvestre, Shay Given, Thierry Henry, Harry Kewell, Wayne Bridge, Shota Averladze, Dianbobo Balde, Fabio Cannavaro and Paolo Maldini. All those figures are exactly the same and have the same MC Codes.


Alessandro Del Piero in Juventus away kit and Emre Inter Milan home are both in the Powershot version 2 on Green and Gold base.


Alessandro Del Piero Juventus home, Diego Forlan Manchester United home, Lauren Arsenal home and Joe Cole Chelsea home are all included in the Microdome Managers Edition on a Gold base, with the MC Codes being the same as in this series.
