A brand new range of England national football team figures is booting its way to toy retail.

The line is a part of Pattni Imaginations’ Match-Stars football figures series 2, and its announcement comes ahead of the England vs France game tonight (Monday, June 11th, 5pm).

The new range will also feature four of the biggest football clubs – FC Barcelona, Liverpool FC, Chelsea FC and Arsenal FC.

Goalkeepers will appear for the first time, such as England’s Joe Hart, as well as other new figures including Liverpool FC’s Pepe Reina, FC Barcelona’s Víctor Valdés, Chelsea FC’s Juan Mata and Arsenal FC’s Wojciech Szczęsny.

Each figure comes with an official replica kit for the new season featuring all club sponsors, as well as Premier League name and numbering for the English clubs. The figures are also fully pose-able with moveable limbs.

Pattni Imaginations says the first series of Match-Stars has performed well at retail, with figures selling “in huge numbers”. New distribution partnerships are being set up which will “strengthen existing deals in the UK and South America”.

“We are delighted to be announcing our plans for Series 2 of Match-Stars,” said Pattni Imaginations MD Mayur Pattni.

“The launch of Series 1 was a case of testing the waters, but the success of the range has surpassed even our expectations. And with Series 2 we will be looking to take things to the next level – the sky’s the limit for Match-Stars!"
