P1030203

Background

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.

P1030125

Packaging

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.

The Figure

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.

Our Opinion

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:

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.

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..

P1030129

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.

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"
