REVIEW: We All Speak Football Trexis
Just in time for the 2006 World Cup, Play Imaginative has released their We All Speak Football line of Trexis. With 25 designs from around the world, this series (sponsored by Coca-Cola) is for designer toy collectors and soccer fans alike.
Each 3” figure is packaged in a specialized, windowless box that is designed by the specific designer. Included on the box is artwork as well as information about the designer and figure design.
Being a platform toy, if you’ve seen one 3” Trexi, you’ve seen them all. Well…sort of. All of the 25 designers give these individual figures a different flavor. All of them have their own bottle of Coca-Cola…since the line is sponsored by the beverage maker.
With 25 figures in this line, we are going to split things into a
review of 12 designs and then 13 (tomorrow). So here they are:
LAB - 7.4/10
Inspired by: Fabric works
Kei Sawada - 7.8/10
Inspired by: Coke is loved by both the parent and child. These characters transform into great football players, just by drinking Coke. Because of this, people start drinking Coke and enjoying the sport more. The mother of the family is waiting for them to return home to eat the Coke dishes that she has prepared.
Ryosuke Tei - 8.1/10
Inspired by: A bear has a message that "we all should be hooked on football with LOVE & PEACE & HAPPINESS spirit! Let's forget a silly war!"
Danny Chan - 9.1/10
Inspired by: Spook Panda is one of the members in the Spooky series! A "Goal Keeper" that loves football! Look out for the other members of the Spooky series!
Erwin Weber aka Down - 8.3/10
Inspired by: This football suppoorter has only one goal.. that is to be a professional football player, although he practices all of the time.. he never made it happen. This might be the reason why he acts like a hooligan from time to time.. The only thing that calms him down is his favorite drink..
Darren Gan aka Boner - 7.7/10
Inspired by: I want to cheer and shout out the love for Coke and the sport of football. And what better way than doing a cheerleader. Robo Kong is a character done for trexi series 1, and now translated to suit the likes for this project.
Tracy Tubera - 8.1/10
Inspired by: Every players' determination, focus, passion and love for the sport.
Airene Yonia - 8.6/10
Inspired by: A yarn-wrestling kitten
Jeremyville - 8.9/10
Inspired by: we all secrectly think of ourselves as the number 1 fan of our team, and that's what makes us all similar, and unites us...or something like that. Maybe my Trexi means something else entirely, like "I'm your number 1 Stalker"
Jon Burgerman - 9.2/10
Inspired by: The different sides to being a football fan.
Huck Gee - 8.6/10
Inspired by: I call him Punter. A diehard soccer fan, he's all bundled up in his parka, off to see the local match.
Jim Koch - 9.3/10
Inspired by: My goofy character is a friend of mine who is a semi-pro soccer athlete. I put a twist on this with our Circus Punk stylized. Just showing all to have a good time with a Coke and a twist of lime.
Do you want to know how to get your hands on a set of these? We're giving away the whole set in our discussion board. That's 25 figures! Check it out!
