As ever Liverpoool had a strong presence release wise, with the 2016/17 collection seeing 15 figures released, all in 2016/17 kit.
Summer signing Sadio Mane got his first ever SoccerStarz release, and what a cracking sculpt it is too. Youngster Jordon Ibe was also sculpted for the first time, however he was released in limited numbers due to his departure from the club to join AFC Bournemouth.
Keeper Simon Mignolet was a late inclusion in the range due to the injury to new keeper Lorik Karius. The rest of the Liverpool figures are all repaints of previously released figures, which are Daniel Sturridge, Philippe Coutinho, Mamadou Sakho, Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Roberto Firmino, Nathaniel Clyne, Divock Origi, Adam Lallana and Emre Can.
Clyne, Firmino, Henderson and Coutinho were all released in single blister packs with a mini top trumps card, the rest had an Elite leaflet. The 3 Liverpool figures included in the Elite Foil Bag were Ibe, Firmino and Clyne. Interestingly the tray insert slide at the front of the blister was changed from Green to White for the blisters of Mignolet and Mane.
Jurgen Klopp was actually released in 2 variant blisters, the first release saw him in his Black and Red trim tracksuit but with an updated mini Top trumps card which has 4 stats on it, the second version has the same 4 stat mini Top trumps card but features Klopp in an all new all Black tracksuit!
Martin Skrtel left Liverpool in the Summer to join Turkish side Fenerbache, however a few of him in 2016/17 Liverpoool kit had already been produced and for some unexplained reason they found their way into Elite Foil Bags! It is thought that no more than around 50 Skrtel in 2016/17 Liverpool kit actually exist.
