NOTTINGHAM FOREST 95/96

 Nottingham Forest had only 3 figures released in the kit worn for the 95/96 season but a further 12 were released in the 96/97 kit.

 The 3 figures chosen for release were goalkeeper and expert penalty stopper Mark Crossley, painted in a very detailed kit, £3 million pound dutch signing Bryan Roy and Steve Stone, the Stone was the same sculpt as the Enghlish national Headliner.

 There was supposed to be a 4th figure and for a long time it was assumed that Stuart Pearce was released in the 95/96 kit. The rumour started after he appeared in the 'collect the set' information file wearing the 95/96 kit, however he was not and was only released in the 96/97 kit. One collector claims to have a Pearce in the 95/96 in BLISTER but i have never been sent a picture, so are inclined to believe it has never been produced.

 The reason why the Pearce figure was pulled so close to the release was due to the player being linked with a move to Manchester United. Pearce was rumoured to be very close to signing for Manchester United, so Corinthian pulled the figure, as who would by the Nottingham Forest figure if he has juat left the club? As it was the deal never materialised, so instead Pearce would later be included in the 96/97 set of Nottingham Forest figures.

 All the figures are common place today and should cost no more than £3 each.
