Corinthian Headliners / MicroStars Action Figures

Little Athletes With Big Heads

Corinthian Headliners Emmitt Smith action figureCorinthian is the UK’s fastest growing Top 50 Toy Company by both volume and value in 2006. The company brands cover both Toy and Confectionery categories. Key licensed brands include Puppy in my Pocket, Kitty in my Pocket, the FA (Football Association) and Marvel Micros.

From a sports perspective, Corinthian's major focus is soccer. Over 170 million football figurines have been sold since company start-up in 1985. The major soccer brands are ProStars (a 7cm figure) www.prostars.co.uk and MicroStars (a 5cm version of the same style of figure). NOTE: I do not have soccer figures on this site.

In the late 1990s Corinthian issued Headliners, which were large-headed mini-figures of American professional athletes. Headliners were released for NFL, MLB, NHL and NBA players between 1996 and 1999.

In 2006 Corinthian released two new series of Major League Baseball figures. These figures, smaller than the Headliners, were called MLB Miniatures or MicroStars. I don't know if they plan to issue more MicroStars in 2007, but they do show on their website that the company is licensed to sell MLB products.
