I collect every football figure ever released, that means ProStars, XLs, Microstars, non-Corinthian figures etc. When I get a figure in the original packaging, I generally do not open it, which means I have a lot of blisters, window boxes, multipacks, sachets, platinums and loose figures.
As new figures are released every year, my collection keeps growing. Whether it is the new Soccerstarz series or some obscure figures released in a supermarket in South America: I am keen on getting it.
In the beginning of March 2021 I completed my Corinthian football collection by getting the Nakata Fiorentina away keyring. That means over 5,000 different Corinthian figures. I collect MicroStars on one base colour – 70% has a gold base. Figures that were released both as KeyRing and Phone Strap, I also collect 1x, as it is exactly the same figure.
In 2023, I started a new challenge: collecting every non-football Headliner figure that was released by Corinthian between 1996 and 1999. This includes the famous All Blacks rugby players that were released in New Zealand, the wrestlers that were released in Japan and the NBA, NFL, NHL and MLB figures that were released in the United States. This full collection consists of nearly 700 figures. At this moment I am still looking for the 4 rare Kintetsu baseball figures that were released in Japan. Please let me know if you ever see them!
My favourite figures are the Headliners, World Greats and the XL figures. The figures that I am most proud of to possess, are:
Tomas Brolin – Leeds United Master Model
Glenn Helder – Arsenal Tool Master Model
Peter Bosz – Feyenoord Tool Master Model
Georg Koch – PSV Tool Master Model
Shinji Ono – Coca Cola Kit Master Model
Full set of Feyenoord tool masters
Signed XL figures of Pele, Maradona, Puskas, Eusebio and Banks
Signed World Greats figures of Cruijff and Best
Full set of Select 500 figures in blister

Enjoy browsing and happy collecting!
