Following on from the success of the England national Headliners, Corinthian released a new range of figures consisting of players from both the English Premiership and also the Scottish Premiership. This range hit the shops in January 1996.

 Corinthian released figures from every club in the English Premiership during the 1995/96 season and just the 5 teams from the Scottish Premiership.

 The original idea was to release the full squad for every team, at least 12 players per club, however it soon became apparent that this was not a viable commercial option for a few reasons.

 One of these reasons is that most people bought their favourite players or the players from the club they supported and in the majority of cases this was teams such as Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Newcastle United, which meant figures from less supported clubs like QPR, Bolton Wanderers or Manchester City went unsold in many shops, meaning most stockists only wanted to stock figures from the top clubs as these were guarenteed sellers.

 Corinthian sought to address this problem by distributing figures from these less supported clubs around the area of the club, for example very few Wimbledon figures went to shops in the North of England and in contrast very few Middlesbrough figures were sent to shops in London.

 As for the Scottish figures, most of those were sold primarily in Scotland with only the larger stockists in England stocking the figures. Celtic and Rangers figures could be found in some English shops, the 'Gascoigne' in Rangers kit could be found anywhere for example, whereas figures from Aberdeen were very hard to find outside of Scotland.

 Corinthian continued to release figures in this range up until the end of the 97/98 season when they changed the brand name to Prostars. The figures were released on a variety of packaging formats, with the most popular amongst collectors being the 'single blister pack' some of the figures released in this range have become very hard to get over time, especially those from the lesser supported clubs.

 Details of all the figures released in this range can be found by clicking on any of the club badges below.
