Adrenalyn XL World Cup 2014 Brasil

#1
This edition was still missing here so i thought maybe it´s still not too late to correspond about a rather special edition (specially for the Germans ;-)

I´m still quite new in cards collecting and keep focussed on "only" 3 collections by now but fortunately it was possible to find some rather rare cards already. My question to all users of this site: has anybody information or sources regarding the most difficult cards of this collection? There are a few LE´s as Kuyt and Muslera, some XXL LE´s as Iniesta, Özil, Lukaku, the Nordic editions (Goal Machines + Icons) and specially the difficult LE´s of the UK version i´m specially looking for. I´m just not willing to pay 200€ up for one UK Lim so maybe anybody have some information about better sources which would be rather helpful.

Of course i´m also willing to swap these items if i got the right stuff for exchange. I´m specially hoping for the UK guys here and please you to consider: the next penalty shoot out is still far far away. ;-)

It's been a while for this, but here's what I remember:

International LEs: Muslera is definitely the toughest one, followed by Kuyt and then Dempsey. Then there's some more on the 15-25 range (auction prices at the time), like Kokorin, Musa, Lichtsteiner, Behrami, perhaps also Palacios... Suarez, Sneijder and Pirlo weren't so easy too, but affordable... They were mostly sold only in Russia tins, who had all the LEs available (except UK ones and trophy), though Turkey as usual also had some (or all).

XXL I really don't remember much, except seeing those you mentioned + Fellaini... I remember belgium ones came out in belgian starters and most likely, LEs such Iniesta and Ozil were in Turkey starters.

Nordic cards: only "affordable" if you did the nordic edition collection. An average of just one per 50-packs box, though I have the idea of seeing someone getting four... Probably in some FCS video?

UK LEs: Cole is very easy, at the time I still got an UK tin with Sturridge LE (could had bad luck of getting Falcão), managed to find a cheap Wilshere auction (I only believed after really receiving it), but never got Gerrard (probably the toughest too)... I remember seeing an auction for a damaged Gerrard still sold by dozens of pounds.

If there still would be cheap/affordable sources, everyone would get it, right? UK never has good prices (except for UK residents), russian tins at the time were almost the holy grail (always sold for dozens and it would be likely to get a cheap LE), XXL's only with the right sources and well, nordic is nordic.

To sum things up: it's always better to do these collections at the time, if you really want to have all limiteds and nordics. And even so, you can't get away of paying dozens for the rarest LE's, unless you have some incredible luck of still finding items containing those limiteds.

Anybody know how to get the Supporter card?It seems impossible to get them from box or tin.
Starter packs or magazines. German one was in some Just Kick-It, most of the others in starter packs (France had both french and brazilian supporter card, Australia also were in their starter packs, dutch the same, etc).
