You do get a few on eBay now and then .. the plastic is cheap and nasty .. the actual mouldings look very thick and the paint finish looks quite poor .. the hoops on the Celtic are quite something - truly awful each to their own but I think they are horrible.

I run a web page with pictures of the collection. There are also comparisons side by side between the La Leggenda HW and older miniatures, such as HW, LW and also with some new replicas.

Apparently the collection will finish with ref. 137, but there are rumours that it will go on again, probably up to ref. 150. Who knows?

It would be nice if they did some National teams as well.

Need to pick up a couple of these and see if they're worth bothering with.

I'm trying to collect all modern released series - virtually got all PLG and La Leggenda ones now.

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.
