OYO introduced their first Major League Soccer minifigures with a series of “Supporters”, or fans, in April 2015. These fans of the game introduced OYOs to the soccer world for the first time! There were three fans released for each club. They were in mystery packs by team, that included one of the three minifigures at random, and retailed for $9.99-12.99.
In July of 2015, we issued the only MLS All Star Game minifigures as our debut launch for the game hosted by the Colorado Rapids. These very special, and now very rare, minifigures, were only sold at the game and as part of a promotion with the MLS. They were not available in stores.
In August of 2015, we launched Generation 1 MLS minifigures, with a complement of top stars and players from around the league. All teams were represented, and for many we were able to include mascots. These all came with printed MLS logo and design soccer balls in the package, an OYO first. That’s right, it’s the first time we included printed sports equipment to match those on the field of play. We also launched our buildable trainer carts and locker rooms with our Generation 1 minifigures. Among the very tough to find Generation 1 minifigures includes Spike of Vancouver, for whom we made less than 25.
At the end of the 2015 season, we also made a special MLS Cup Champs series for the Timbers. It included all of their stars, and was offered for a very limited time. Production ceased on 12/31/15. These are very challenging to find in the market place. As of this writing we see none actively available for sale. We would love to know if you have purchased any, or are searching for some!
Our Generation 2 minifigures launched in February 0f 2016, and were all retired by or before March 31, 2017. These Generation 2 minifigures included an updated MLS Soccer Ball to match the new design in use for that season of play. These are also the first minifigures for soccer to come with headphones. OYO did not return with a new Generation of MLS after this, so the 2 Generations are all that are available for the MLS. A few last minute additions to the Gen 2 lineup include International Star Goalie Tim Howard, Kei Kamara as a member of the Revolution and the rookie OYO of Seattle native, and Sounders star, Jordan Morris.
All of these were made in low quantities, check out the population report on the checklist below!
Stay tuned for new announcements around soccer from OYO. In the meantime, Happy Hunting for these great OYO Soccer minifigures!
