France had to rely on the play off's to make it to the World Cup in Brazil, which gave all those at SoccerStarz a bit of a scare, as they had announced they would be releasing figures in the French national kit before the nation had qualified, so had the team failed to qualify it is unlikely they would still have produced the range, and what a range it is!

 

A total of 28 France National SoccerStarz were released as part of the 2014 World Cup Range, a number only bettered by England. All 28 were released as single blister packs on GREEN base, there were 3 varying styles of the 4 player pack, with the SoccerStarz inside being on SILVER base. The 24 player box set had the SoccerStarz on a GOLD base and all 28 featured inside the Tournament Edition Blind Bag, with the figures on a BLUE base.

 

The range did largely consist of SoccerStarz previously released in the players respective club kits, however there were also a few new additions. The new sculpts were Loic Remy, fans of QPR and Newcastle United were pleased to see his inclusion and a fine sculpt it is too! Paul Pogba was quickly emerging as a force in Italy's Serie A and was instantly recogniseable by his hair style, his figure would be a big hit amongst collectors.

 

There was a trio of players from French side Marseille, Dimitri Payet, Steve Mandanda and Mathieu Valbuena, which led collectors speculating over whether Marseille had joined the ever expanding portfolio license held by SoccerStarz. Geoffrey Kondogbia of AS Monaco was featured, which fuelled speculation that AS Monaco SoccerStarz would soon be released, the Kondogbia is a particular favourite of mine, superb sculpt. Completing the new sculprs was Adil Rami who was on loan to AC Milan at the time of the figures release.

 

without doubt the most anticipated of the new sculpts was that of wing wizard Franck Ribery, the sculpting was spot on and really captured the person perfectly. Ribery is a World Class player so was a must for any collection.

 

As mentioned there was a 24 figure box set, the 4 not included in the box set are Hatem Ben Arfa, Cristophe Jallet, Dimitri Payet and Youness Kaboul, of those figures 3 of them actually featured inside the same 4 player pack , which was Ben Arfa, Payet and Jallet, all found in 4 pack A, with Kaboul only being released as a single blister pack, or inside the Tournament Edition Blind Bag.
