MATCH LUCKY BAG
The Match Lucky Bag figures were not an official Corinthian release, however they did use many of the same body poses and head sculpts as the Corinthian figures and it is due to this similarity that I have chosen to include them.
Although they do not form part of the official Corinthian collection, I do feel they are a superb set of figures and certainly do not look out of place in the collection.
As you will see, the figures are the same style as Corinthian, both in the material used and the style of paintwork and finishing. The figures do not have any names or numbers on the shirts and no collector codes were used for them.
The figures of Rio Ferdinand and Michael Owen were actually released before the official Corinthian version, feel both are actually excellent sculpts. There are 22 figures in the set, which includes 2 goal keepers, and 20 outfield players, who wear a white shirt and navy shorts.
The figures were released in an A4 sized plastic bag, which contained inside 1 randomly packed figure, along with other goodies such as crayons, colouring sheets, sweets and chocolate.
