We were waiting for the sticker album of the phenomenon of the moment Stumble Guys. After two internationally successful card collections, the classic version finally arrives on newsstands, where you don’t have to insert anything into anonymous plastic sheets but give yourself over to the pleasure of attaching the stickers.
Diramix’s card collections are often essential, in our opinion a limitation they have, even with the countless Dragon Ball collections. Fans will certainly have found them interesting, but those who know less about the characters haven’t found much enthusiasm. The big difference between stickers and cards, to the advantage of the stickers, is that in the majority of cases the work on the album requires particular attention and this, in the long run, leads to an extremely more complete, varied and ultimately more fun.
Diramix has done a good job, creating an album that is certainly not static, for those of us who love shaped figurines here will have many good reasons to be happy. We could go so far as to say that we are faced with a small encyclopedia of the Stumble Guys world.
The characters are divided by category, the common Stumblers, the uncommon, the rare ones, epic ones, legendary ones, mythical ones and special ones. We leave it to you to count them but they are well over 100 characters, although some are printed on paper, in order to avoid too high a number of stickers in the album which, even so, is already challenging, exceeding 200 stickers.
The “wikistumble” pages are alternated with more classic pages that allow us to visit the settings and share the adventures. At the center of the album is a great Diramix classic: the poster with stick&stack stickers with which children can create stories using the three different scenography. These 20 stickers are not rare, they can be found easily inside the sachets.
Some might say that the Milanese publisher uses a scheme already seen, honestly if it is functional to the success of the album, we don’t see any major problems and in any case the pages with the shaped stickers, although ultimately simple, are a nice effect. This solution is better than the previous Brawl Stars album with stickers of different sizes.
Speaking of stickers, parents, are you ready to find them stuck everywhere? They are also suitable for filling notebooks, diaries and perhaps more… Here, from this point of view, perhaps adults prefer cards which are unlikely to be invasive on walls, refrigerators or home furniture.
But here at Figurine Forever we like to take some risks 🙂
