Topps Match Attax UEFA Champions League 2018-19

#21
Ok, anyone knows what's the deal with LE15 (De Bruyne)? It's not a "Super Squad" LE and Topps only mentions 14 to find in their products, but it appears in the virtual binder.

Also, no more Pro 11 this season, right?
For Germany Topps had made the announcement that KDB will appear only in Bravo Sport Magazine # 24/2018, not in the common Topps products. But I don't know if this is an exclusive deal only for Germany or if there will be similar magazine campaigns across Europe.

Thank you for the info, hopefully that LE can be found in similar magazines across the countries.

I've checked some videos of people opening MA products and seems this year Topps has mixed every LE in almost all products, except mega-tins and starter. Not a good thing to have, for example, Messi LE in a multipack, when you can find it for sure in Super Strikers tin.

Having opened nearly every product released I can honestly say this is a much improved collection than previous years.

The designs are cleaner and the colours are vibrant. The sub-set cards all look different and the LEs are easier to collect.

I have 7 of 14 limited edition cards so far which is not bad considering I have not opened any booster boxes yet.

One thing is missing from this year is the trophy card & the official CL match ball.

Also, would have been nice to have a historical sub-set of past winning teams or players.

Once again, I believe that Topps have just failed to deliver a perfect or near perfect product once again.

If they lose the rights with UEFA for next season, they have only themsleves to blame.

They have signed earlier this year (I think?) another 3-year deal with UEFA, so you'll be getting Topps CL until 2021.

Agree that his collection has improved. Design is nice, love the MOTM cards and players pictures blend well with the cards. Still not a fan of so many scores, but sometimes it's fun to check it out too (and I suppose kids like it).

The only major flaw is the usual one: just 22 teams. Panini had it too, most likely due to licensing but maybe lack of space in collection (keeping 18 cards per team makes the binder "tidier"?)... Here in Portugal, it's even more notorious because Benfica is not there and well, there's so many here who just collect something if it has their team in it. And seeing how MA boxes are almost always closed when I go to shops, I believe MA collection here will have poor sales. Stickers are still selling though, not only because Benfica is there, but also because we're a sticker country, people want it cheaper.

Also, it annoys me a bit how Limiteds can be found this year. If finally there's no more GSB, based on what I saw so far, Topps has decided that blisters/multipacks and mini-tins have ALL limiteds available, except Neymar I think (which comes in starter pack). Which means you might get a limited you already got from mega-tin, which are fixed LEs. Saw many pulling Messi or Salah from blisters/multipacks, when these are found in specific mega-tins. Still better than GSB crap though.

Overall, it's the best CL MA set so far and always preferred Topps cards rather than stickers.

Oh Wow!!! 3 more years of Topps with UEFA!!! I guess we live with it in hope of improvement.
If they use all 32 teams it would be too much. Surprising that Benfica are not in it but that's topps for you.
Understandable people want their teams in certain collections. I might be jacking FIFA365 stickers this year because there's no LFC again & only 1 English club.
I pulled a Sane LE in 2 different products so yeh we can have doubles but then we can swap.
