Merseyside giants Liverpool had 14 figures released in the first series of the FAPL Collection, all were released in January 1996, with the figures painted in the kit worn for the 1995/96 season.

 Many of these figures, 9 in fact, were later released in the England national kit as part of series 2 of the National release, those 9 figures being - Collymore, Barnes, Fowler, Ruddock, McManaman, Redknapp, James, Jones and Scales.

 All these Liverpool figures were original first time master models, however two of the England figures featured a different body pose. The figures that had alternative body poses are Fowler and Scales.

 A mixed bad intems of sculpt accuracy, the figures of most the players were very detailed and bore a huge likeness to the actual player but there was the sculpt of Jamie Redknapp! This for me is one of Corinthians worst sculpts and unless you read the name on the shirt or base you would have a hard time in determing which player it was supposed to be. On the other hand there are sculpts of Neil 'razor' Ruddock which are superbly detailed and accurate as was the sculpt of 'Kop' legend Ian Rush.

 Liverpool figures were also released in single player window boxes which featured the figure and a single podium with a backing card for Liverpool too. Inside these boxes was also a Liverpool Collectors information file which depicted all 14 figures from this set but it also gave you the chance to claim one of two Liverpool figures in this seasons away kit!

 The two figures which were painted in the 1995/96 away kit are: Robbie Fowler and Jamie Redknapp. You could not buy either of these two figures direct from the shop or from Corinthian themselves and were made available solely with this promotion. The figures were not in blister but in clear sachet format only and buying just 8 figures gave you enough tokens to claim one of the away kit figures.

 All the home kit figures are readily availble and will cost very little, however the away kit redemption figures are much rarer and can sell for over £5 and in excess of £10 if found in the original sachet.
