ITALY SERIES 3

Corinthian MicroStars Italy Series 3 hit the shelves in April 2010, giving collector's another 24 figures to collect, with the range containing the best of Italy's Serie A, along with a player from Barcelona, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United, there were even 6 legends figures too!


The line up had everything for collector's, star names, emerging talent, first time sculpts and legends figures. Master of the defensive dark arts Giorgio Chiellini had his first ever Corinthian release, in the kit of Juventus, along with fellow Juventus team mate Amauri, while Napoli play maker Marek Hamsik also made his MicroStars debut. Chiellini would be released again however not by Corinthian, he would feature in the MicroStars Azzurri 2014 series done by Giochio Preziosi, while Hamsik would only again feature in the MicroStars 2011-12 series done by Giochi Preziosi, so these versions of Chiellin and Hamsik are the only ones released by Corinthian.


2 legends of the game got their first and only Corinthian MicroStars release,, with AC Milan club legend Franco Baresi, and Brazilian Falcao for Roma making their only appearance as a Corinthian MicroStars figure. Italy Series 3 didn't seem to be as widely distributed as the first 2 series and even from the start there seemed less of the figures around and on the secondary market. The most sought after figure from Italy Series 3 i feel is Chiellini, a true club icon and the only Corinthian MicroStars release of him meant he was always going to be in demand. Other sought after figures are the ones you would also expect, Diego, Pato, Milito, Baresi, Hamsik and Eto'o but on the whole the Series can be hard to pick up, especially if you want a certain base colour.



The full line up for MicroStars Italy Series 3 is:

  • AC Milan - Ronaldinho, Alexandre Pato
  • Roma - Philippe Mexes
  • Inter Milan - Diego Milito, Samuel Eto'o, Julio Cesar
  • Juventus - Diego, Amauri, Giorgio Chiellini
  • Fiorentina - Alberto Gilardino
  • Sampdoria - Antonio Cassano
  • Lazio - Tomasso Rocchi
  • Genoa - Hernan Crespo
  • Napoli - Marek Hamsik
  • Barcelona - Lionel Messi
  • Chelsea - Didier Drogba
  • Liverpool - Steven Gerrard
  • Manchester United - Wayne Rooney


The 6 Legends figures in Italy Seres 3 are:

  • Udinese - Zico
  • AC Milan - Franco Baresi
  • Juventus - Dino Zoff
  • Sampdoria - Gianluca Vialli
  • Genoa - Gianfranco Zola
  • Roma - Falcao

All 24 figures were done on all 7 base colours - Green, Red, Blue, White, Silver, Gold and Black. All MC codes are exclusive to this series. The figures of goal keepers Julio Cesar and Dino Zoff had 4 different MC codes per base colour, with just 1 MC code for the Black base.



Corinthian MicroStars Italy Series 3 figures were released inside sealed blind bags, which was a change from Series 1 & 2 which had them in blind boxes. Each figure also came with a Fanbook which gave a profile on the player and also detailed the rest of the figures in the series.
