The world of stickers, of cards in this case, is much more varied and dynamic than you might think. Especially in Italy we think that everything revolves around football but in reality and luckily we add there is so much more. There are other collections that perhaps don’t have all that hype, sometimes created artificially, but in reality they have their following of enthusiasts.
This is the case of Stumble Guys, thanks to the review of the previous album we received messages from many places, with requests for material even from South America, trying to help where and as long as we could. The proof that it was a successful album is not only this new collection, but its editorial approach and proposal.
Diramix takes a step forward, perhaps risky, perhaps not, the collectors will decide. In addition to the 162 cards of the basic set, here is the novelty of the 12 Mythic cards, to be found in the special packs. It is certainly not easy or cheap to complete the collection but we must point out some interesting details, which bring quality and interest.
The binder has pages printed with numbers 1-9, 10-18 and so on up to 154-162. It’s a detail but we like these details. Above all, the insert adds quality and particularity, we like the choice. A cardboard insert where the 12 special cards can be inserted, in some way also allows collectors to make a choice, in some way it is an extra set external to the basic binder.
Was Diramix right? In such complicated times even the cost of the sachets leaves its mark and the collection costs above average. But now the difference is no longer made by quantity or value, but by the choice of theme and characters. In this case, perhaps the reason is on the Stumble Guys’ side.
