Captain Tsubasa

I received an interesting request to paint up the anime football team "Captain Tsubasa".

Captain Tsubasa, also known as Flash Kicker, is a popular long-running Japanese manga, animation, and video game series, originally created by Yƍichi Takahashi in 1981. The series mainly revolves around the sport of Association football.

The story focuses on the adventures of a Japanese youth soccer team and its football captain Tsubasa Oozora, whose name literally translates to "Big Sky Wings". The series is characterized by dynamic football moves, often stylish and implausible. The plot focuses on Tsubasa's relationship with his friends, rivalry with his opponents, training, competition, and the action and outcome of each football match.

Watch a clip of the animation series here

Here's how the figures turned out on the little plastic men.

Star Wars Stormtroopers

I love Star Wars. I love Subbuteo.  Combining the 2 together is a match made in heaven!

I made a Star Wars team a couple of years back and have been meaning to paint this up for a long, long time.

I'm hoping Darth Vader in goal can use the dark side of the force to keep the goals out!


This will be played every time I score a goal!
