Following on from the success of Japan ProStars Series 1, early 2006 saw series 2 released. Again consiting of 8 figures, with all players being in home and away kit, however this time they were all from the same J-League club, Kashima Antlers.

 

All 4 were Brazilian born players, all had made a big impact during their time at Kashima Antlers. Alcindo is a superb sculpt, full of character and detail, even those collectors who had not heard of the player added it to their wanted lists.

 

Bismarck had 4 seasons at the J-League club, making 137 appearances and scoring 33 times, while Jorginho scored 17 times in 103 games for the club, bother are superb sculpts and really cauth the eye of the collector.

 

By far, the biggest name in this series is Leonardo, a World Cup winner with Brazil and a very succesful time with Italian Serie A club AC Milan. Corinthian did an entirely new sculpt of this player and it far surpasses the previously released figures. Due to the global popularity of Leonardo, he was the best seller and the most sought after from Japan ProStars Series 2.

 

All were released as single blisters packs with individually numbered collector cards, however no Platinum blister packs were produced for this series. As with Japan ProStars Series 1, each figure had it's own blister card design,  although a generic one as they were all from Kashima Antlers, each had the players name accross the top of the blister.

 

Due to licensing restraints Corinthian were unable to get stock of this product into the UK, so again collectors relied on the hard work of the official resellers to acquire stock.
