I bought a limited edition World Cup soccer figure in Paris during the games in 1998, #3005. It does not have the shell logo on the package -but does say limited edition on the right lower corner. The package also says collect both teams. Does anyone know anything about this lego figure?
Is this the figure in question?
He's the limited edition English or Scottish team player. The other limited edition figure was a Dutch (Netherlands) player. Lego released an entire soccer theme in 1998 in conjunction with the World Cup, which you can see here on Brickset.
