1. When did you start collecting SoccerStarz?
I began my SoccerStarz collection in November 2013.
2. Why did you start collecting SoccerStarz?
I have always been a massive fan of the Corinthian model release and on the latter years of the company I became concerned with the release format. A short time later the company folded and I drifted away from the collection. I was late on finding out about the Soccerstarz release however since discovering them I have been eager and excited to collect them all and add to my growing collection. The models are exceptional and the variety of club availability reminds me of the Corinthian Headliner days.
3. Which was the very first SoccerStarz you purchased?
Benoit Assou-Ekotto Tottenham Hotspur 2012/13.
4. What is your favourite SoccerStarz figure?
Very very difficult to answer but I would have to say Tabarez. Excellent model, rare and well sought after which makes it even more of a favourite for those reasons.
5. How many SoccerStarz do you have in your collection so far?
To date I have every Soccerstarz figure released, which currently stand at 1110!!!
6. Do you buy your SoccerStarz in Blind Bag or Blister Pack?
I only buy my Soccerstarz in blister format and I am very lucky to have local members within the Soccerstarz community who look after me when it comes to exclusive blind bag releases.
7. Do you purchase your SoccerStarz online or from a shop?
8. Do you collect your SoccerStarz all on 1 base colour, or just random base colours?
I only collect my Soccerstarz on GREEN base. The only models I have on a colour base are Kerim Frei (blue), Dempsey (white) and Lampard (City Blue), Bosingwa (blue), Foster and Forster (white) and box set exclusives due to release format.
9. Do you display your SoccerStarz loose, or do you keep them in Blister Pack?
Loose in my display cabinets.
10. What is the most you have paid for a single SoccerStarz figure?
£25 for the exclusive and rare model that is Ross Perry Glasgow Rangers.
11. Which current player or manager would you most like to see made into a SoccerStarz?
Pirlo would be popular model and one to challenge the most sold player to date of Beckham PSG.
12. Which Legend from the past would you most like to see made as a SoccerStarz?
Brian Laudrup. A personal hero of mine and a true club legend. Would do anything for a Rangers and Denmark release.
