So about 500 including limited editions...o_O
Of which 200 are easily found in most countries, 200 only in Turkey, 50 released later and the remaining 50 found only in premium packs.

I'll probably pass this one, imo not enough value to do it... At most, I would do a Confederations Cup set, but not likely they go for it.

I think, which teams will be in this series? I guess lot of Northern teams, Denmark, Sweden, Iceland, parhaps Norway. I hope Hungary teams will be in Road To Fifa World Cup 2018.
The limited cards, if i tip, Lewandowski, Ronaldo, Bale, Neuer, Müller, Rooney, Hazard. Diego Costa, Messi, Neymar, Suarez, so usual players

If the collection has a base set of less than 300 cards, then it's safe to say there will be around 20-24 teams.

I personally hope for:

1) Nice design, like FIFA365 2017 base cards.
2) Updated kits and photos, not from last year...
3) National teams from every continent
4) Greece National Team Set

There will be 477 cards in total, 101 of which are special shiny ones. Division of the 101 sub-set cards is below.

12 Defensive Rock
12 Key Player
12 Goal Machine
35 Fans Favourite
16 Game Changer
9 Expert
5 Top Player

In addition, there will be PREMIUM packets just like FIFA365 with 10 cards in each, 6 of which are base then 3 special cards + 1 LE.
Panini will also release blisters with 5 packs in each + 1 LE + 1 special card just like FIFA365.
There will be mini tins, big tins, multi packs and the usual starter packs.

Looks like the "normal" 26 sheet album is not big enough then.
Hope they will figure it out and put everywhere the 30 sheet one.

:eek:
Info sheet claims the binders have 30 sheets... And it's 531 after all? Then all sheets are used, leaving just one page.

I suppose there's no UK edition, right? Just to be sure because they're advertising that "Includes" part.

EDIT: Forget it, there must be some extra UK cards at least, because there's more 54 cards, 14 of which are special.


Isn't Panini returning to minimalistic editions again? After FIFA 365 2015/16 and Euro 2016, they began to reduce the special categories... Hopefully 2018 WC collection will have again many different kinds of special cards.

@dantzig I have no idea how they are doing it. I didn't collect any "Road to" so I don't know if there's less special cards or more.
Looks like a big collection at 500 odd cards but I think it said there will be about 115 sub-set cards which is on par with other Panini AXL releases.

Definitely less, FIFA 365 1st year had more than 200 specials, same as Euro 2016... Of course, by then, we had too much Team Mates in every packs, so 100 and so specials are not bad and we'll have less TM to throw away... I just think it was better to have more different type of cards, instead of, for example, 35 Fans Favorites (which is a special section not really interesting in my opinion).

Yeh the FF section is too big at 30 odd cards, they should condense that to about 18 and add a different sub-set. Looking forward to seeing how this collection is done.

For me should be zero FF, I want more meaningful sections related to football, such as Inventiveness for players with huge technique, Rising Stars or Dynamos for those players who play everywhere (like box-to-box or full winger)... And shiny badges, that would be great too.
