People were actually waiting today, but nothing... But probably until Monday it'll be released.
Very rarely Panini changes anything relevant... Basically it's team pages, then either special stickers from best players from three biggest teams and some from others OR best signings of the season + either Portugal national team players or best portuguese outside Portugal... My best hope this season is having some special section dedicated to Euro 2016 win.Thanks!
Good that the collection is up-to-date, without the annoying "B"-stickers.
I'm curious to see if they changed the collection (at least the cover seems different) or if it follows the style of the previous years
Usually on first or second Sunday after the release... Even if it's released tomorrow or Saturday, I suppose only Sunday after this next one.Do you know when the free version will come with Record newspaper?
Yeah... Different opinions we can say... But I don´t see the point of the newspapers releasing the album with 6 free stickers 1 or 2 weeks after the release of the collection when everyone has already the album so I do really think they will release tomorrow when the packes and album are not out yet. Difficult game for them, interest to watch .I have to say, I've never, ever seen such release... Blisters only so far, no album indeed, and only available in one huge supermarket in another huge shopping mall (Colombo, near Benfica's stadium).
And besides the pictures shared by Football Cards, I've seen some more with so many innovations... 2-sticker teams, autographs (like La Liga this year), 2-sticker "ìdolos", an 8-puzzle sticker picturing images from Portugal players celebrating Euro 2016 victory (besides the heroes stickers from players and best moments)... I still need to check better, but now Sporting is playing!
Sporting scored, so now I can think about this a little moreLike @dantzig said we have a lot of innovations this year, very happy! since last editions the collection looked almost the same year after year. In this photo (once again not mine) we see we have 3 new sections, we have Panini Generation with youngsters I guess. We have Ídolo, Idols of the clubs. And signatures stickers - golden series. And we have the logos of the teams like last year and the team but this year 2 sticker team. And also like mentioned before we have Top Aquisição with best signings and stickers dedicated to the heroes of the Euro 2016 won by Portugal and like dantzig mentioned we have a 8 sticker puzzle of portuguese players celebrating the Euro 2016 win.
Yeah, watching the game as you but cheering for the other side I will maybe guess that they increased the size of the collection, at least I hope they did but it´s nice to see them finally doing some work on the collection not like last years but I also think they had to do it since if they increased the prices and sticked with same things like last year I would not even touch a thing of the product. I would guess the Ídolos would be also foiled and maybe the logo.Sporting scored, so now I can think about this a little more
Yes, it's those photos I saw... I'm now eager to check the album, because there's seem to be so many special stickers that either Panini reduced number of players per team or we have a bigger collection... Can't see which stickers are foiled or something, the only ones I know are the autographs.
It's a very nice start and was not counting with so many good news... Will check later nearby if they received anything.
Ah yes... @Football Cards perhaps you're right, we might have free albums with newspaper tomorrow... but wouldn't surprise me if it was only next Sunday, because Panini always want to sell first some starters... And who knows, Benfica tomorrow's match might have people there giving the album free.
I heard some rumours that there is a starter pack that costs 5 euro and brings 10 packets and the album, not sure is true.This collection's release is getting utter ridiculous... Today, some Lidl decided to sell the albums, again without Panini permission (seems Panini decided to start selling everything tomorrow and warned stores about it)... Now here's the "twilight zone" part: albums really cost 5€, it's written in the back:
Surely there's an explanation for albums being so expensive, it's completely unbelievable that an empty album costs 5€... Perhaps now the album brings some packets too.
About the album itself... I don't think it's a secret anymore, so I can tell now: inside is completely different than usual... If you did Portugal de Ouro or any club album, it has some similarities... Biggest difference than ever before: the three big clubs have not only two pages, but four, with almost 2x more stickers (which includes 2-sticker team, Ídolo, "Attacking Trio" and some more)... But for all other teams, there's only 17 stickers (we usually had 20 or 21 per team)... No manager sticker this time.
Yeah, but that´s still a good offer if you don´t get a lot of doubles. We have to look in Panini perspective that if they didn´t do that people could just buy a lot of those starter packets instead of boxes.I read it too, but if it is, it's likely to be the same what happened in Spain: Less than half of the collection is there.
