November of 2003 saw Corinthian team up with their Japanese distributor Foot Circle, to release a collection of 4 figures of Ramos Ruy. Ruy was Brazilian born but gained Japanese citizenship which enable him to play for the Japan national side. Ramaos Ruy was reverred in Japan and idolised by the nation.  

 

Corinthian released him in Japan home and away kit, with the blister card having a unique design, with the collector card featuring carrer stats. He was aslo released in home and away kit for Tokyo Verdy, sometimes called Verdy Kawasaki, where he had 2 superb stints as a player.

 

This figures was distributed solely in Japan due to licensing issues and was nt really one which many collectors outiside the UK were particularly interested in, it just appealed to those collectors who wanted 1 of each figure produced. A very fine sculpt and the kits are superbly detailed but not a figure which had much appeal outside Japan.
