The new range will still feature four of the biggest clubs in world football: FC Barcelona, Liverpool FC, Chelsea FC and Arsenal FC. Goalkeepers will appear for the first time, and new arrivals to the figures will include Liverpool FC’s Pepe Reina, FC Barcelona’s Víctor Valdés, Chelsea FC’s Juan Mata, Arsenal FC’s Wojciech Szczęsny and Joe Hart in England colours.
Each figure comes complete with official replica kit for the new season featuring all club sponsors, as well as Premier League name and numbering for the English clubs. The figures are also fully poseable and have movable joints, as well as a spring-loaded kicking action.
Mayur Pattni, managing director, said: “We are delighted to be announcing our plans for Series 2 of Match-Stars. Basically, the launch of Series 1 was a case of testing the waters, but the success of the range has surpassed even our expectations. With Series 2 we will be looking to take things to the next level – the sky’s the limit for Match-Stars.”
