I agree. If they'd have released in waves by say specific leagues/ tournament then it would have appealed to me. The random legend/ classic kit approach doesn't really offer anything better/ different what many painters have been offering on Ebay for a long time.I think they made a massive mistake in their marketing.
I'm presuming the market would be for the adult male who remembers the HW teams from the 70's and early 80's...and for an Italian collector market.
Why would they bring out so many random teams from so many different era's? There is no 'system' to the collecting...it's just collecting for the sake of collecting, if you get my drift.
Imo...it would have been better to concentrate on a year, or a World Cup or a certain league.
It would have made sense to do the 1990 World Cup teams for example.
Or how about all the teams from Serie B, Eredivisie, Budasliga, Oberliga from 1981 as an example.
Would have made more sense collecting them to me.
Looking at some of the images on Benji's site though has stirred up a bit of interest though. Has anyone played with them and if so - what are they like?
Also, what's with the black bar? I'm assuming it's been painted black - Do all teams have this black base bar?
