UK SERIES 6

Corinthian released MicroStars Series 6 in December 2002 and Santa's sleigh would need to have been very large to bring the entire collection, which consisted of 60 figures, inside 4 different colour capsules, spread over 5 different packaging formats!

So let's delve into the figures themselves, there were 40 figures from the English Premiership and Scottish Premiership, all in club home kits with the exception of henry in Arsenal away kit and Michael Owen in Liverpool away kit. All 40 were released inside Royal Blue capsules.

There were also 6 away kit figures released inside Yellow capsules, which were Henrik Larrosn for Celtic,Jimmy Floyd Haselbaink for Chelsea, Robbie Fowler for Leeds United, David Beckham for Manchester United, Alan Shearer for Newcastle United and Paolo Di C.anio for West Ham United.

The Dark Blue capsules contained 6 figures in their respective national home kits, which were Saviola, Cafu, Vieira and Italian trio of Inzaghi, Nesta and Cannavaro. All 6 figures were previously released as part of UK Series 4, with thier MC codes being identical.

The Silver capsule featured 8 figures in national kit, 4 in home and 4 away, the 4 home kit ones are Boksic for Croatia, Montero for Uruguay, Ono for Japan and Larsson for Sweden. The 4 away kit figures are Zidane for France, Figo for Portugal, Crespo for Argentina and Raul for Spain. All 8 figures were unique to UK Series 6, they were not released as part of any other series.

The 40 figures in the Roya Blue capsules along with the 6 Yellow capsule figures were all released as part of Japan Miniatures Series 2, with their MC codes being the same for both releases.

Corinthian released UK Series 6 across 5 different packaging formats, single pack, 2 pack, 3 pack, 4 pack and even a mega 7 pack! It needs to be detailed that all Gold based figures were inside Gold capsules only.

The 4 player WCL game pack contained 2 Powerpodz and 2 additional capsules, all figures were included apart from the 6 Yellow capsule figures. A WCL game pitch was also included, with the 4 pack being priced at £4.99

The 7 player WCL game pack contained 3 Powerpodz and 4 additional capsules, with 2 guaranteed to be a Gold capsule containing a Gold base figure! A WCL game pitch was also included, with the pack retailing at £9.99
