It is an invasion! Luckily there are the Gormiti, but in reality they are also part of it. We refer to the invasion of sticker albums on newsstands these days, only Panini has released 5 since the beginning of October. We would like to think that the world of stickers is experiencing a period of great dusting, in reality and more likely they are necessary to keep the rights on great titles, in fact we had Harry Potter, Dragon Ball and now the Gormiti. Different for Lyon and Paw Patrol, the first is a hot title at the moment, the second is linked to the release in theaters of the movie.
The Gormiti album is certainly not one of the memorable ones but it still has its positive sides, which are at the same time also the negative ones. We wanted to create a sort of Best Of, so there is a bit of everything and all aspects of the Gormiti world. This detail, however, is also a positive side because it allows you to have a good overview of the famous cartoon. It is undeniable that we also have an eye for the Gormiti, being born in Italy.
In this long summary in stickers we therefore find the epic battles as many characters, starting from the various Lords and many other fighters, from Lord Sol to Eklypson, to the Alpha Lords, etc. The vast choice of characters is appreciable, it is not exactly the “who’s who” we dream of for many cartoons and comics, but they are certainly the most captivating pages compared to the one already seen from the adventures.
There is also plenty of space for the various Gormiti, if someone thinks they are only the five heroes protagonists, in reality they are much more, like those of the ocean, magma, crystal and the cosmos. For each of them two pages full of characters and stickers, even shaped and you know how much we appreciate them!
It is normal that there is the central poster with the special stickers (in this case the P to 1 to 24), more rare as in this case that both sides are with spaces to be completed. So that every child can hang the side they prefer in their bedroom.
Among the stickers, in addition to our favorite shaped ones, mention for the special gold with silver frame dedicated to many characters. In conclusion, an album that is not fundamental, but still pleasant for fans. We continue to hope that sooner or later Panini will create a collection where all the inhabitants of Gorm, at least those we know in the various episodes of the cartoon, can have their own figurine. A sticker encyclopedia, that would be great, don’t you think?
