UK SERIES 13 - WORLD STARS 2006

With the 2006 World Cup tournament on the horizon, Corinthian released Microstars UK Series 13, which was a 47 figure series, with all players in international kits.


This series again saw the figures come with Footballz, which were tiny balls of chocolate wrapped in a football style foil. In total there were 47 new figures to collect, 39 international home kit and 8 international away kits, well that is not exactly true. There were actually 49 in the series as Thierry Henry was done in France home and away kit in 2 different poses, reason being Corinthian actually ran out of the inital body pose figure, so to ensure the product was not short of Henry figures, they used the other body pose figure, giving collector's 2 more figures to chase!


UK Series 13 saw the first ever Corinthian MicroStars release of possibly the greatest player ever to play the game, Lionel Messi! Other first time sculpts in this series include Fernando Torres, Michael Essien and Ji sung Park.

The Black base rating for this series was increased to a FREE CALL of 24.
