When the news broke that SoccerStarz were to release figures of the German national side, it was met with great excitement by collectors, due in large to the populairty of Bundesliga sides Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund. The German national side is littered with top players, many of which had yet to be made into SoccerStarz, in fact of the 23 SoccerStarz released for Germany, only 5 had previously been released in club kits, those 5 being Mesut Ozil, Lukas Podolski, Per Mertesacker, Sami Khedira and Andre Schurrle, the other 18 were all first time releases.

 

The level of sculpting for the German national range of SoccerStarz is quite simply World Class, the release list reads like a who's who of world football - Manuel Neuer, Philip Lahm, Mats Hummels, Jerome Boateng, Marcel Schmelzer, Holges Badstuber, Sven Bender, Lars Bender, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Illkay Gundogan, Mario Gotze, Thomas Muller, Marco Reus, Toni Kroos, Julian Draxler, Sydney Sam, Mario Gomes and veteran striker Miroslav Klose!

 

It was a release which rivaled Brazil in terms of collector anticipation and it would be interesting to see which figure sold the best. A distribution agreement was reached with German toy company 'Simba' to distribute the German National SoccerStarz in thier home land, these were sure to be a smash hit in Germany.

 

All 23 German national SoccerStarz were released as Single Blister Packs, with the figures on a GREEN base, along with a 15 figure box set, which featured the SoccerStarz on GOLD bases. All 23 German SoccerStarz were included inside the Tournament Edition Blind Bag on a  WHITE base.

 

An interesting point regarding the German National SoccerStarz is that while they did come accompanied with a collector card no figure or player image was used on the card, it simply had the German national emblem and the players name. The Collector Cards were done on 4 different colours - WHITE, SILVER, GOLD and BLACK. Each of the German SoccerStarz single blister packs had 4 versions, 1 for each collector card, so in total there were a whopping 92 German collector cards in the set!

 

I feel it also worth taking a moment to mention the Bender twins, Sven and Lars, both were sculpted, however to differentiate between the 2 one had his eyes looking forward, the other away to the side, a nice touch by the sculpting team. Were collectors excited by the release of German National SoccerStarz...Ja!
