Hello I already found some information and pics about this collection on www.coolcard.se
starter pack: http://www.coolcard.se/pre-buy-1-mega-starter-pack-nordic-edition-panini-adrenalyn-xl-world-cup-2014/10146-0
and packets: http://www.coolcard.se/pre-buy-1-pack-nordic-edition-panini-adrenalyn-xl-world-cup-2014/10147-0
and the tin ball: http://www.coolcard.se/pre-buy-1-tin-ball-nordic-edition-panini-adrenalyn-xl-world-cup-2014/10148-0
It looks like the cards are the same design as the Road To The World Cup Collection, that is going to change I think.

Ah damn, you were faster then me Klarco! :)

I am not sure if this is the final design. In my opinion it looks more as a mock up.
Anyway I put all info from few forums in one article.

Just to confirm, the Suarez Limited Edition is being issued in next months Strike-It! Magazine. Out 6th March. Also includes 3 packets of cards and Haribos too, so looks like a good issue and finally starting to get on par with the German and Polish versions of this magazine. :)

I΄d rather my national team qualify for the World Cup, then have 1000΄s of unnecessary so called "limited editions" (there are millions of these,pure marketing )
So you should΄t bother with Nordic set :D

Not really, seeing as the price rose from £3 to £4.

(with the extra packet of cards and Haribos costing effectively 85p)

£1 for a Limited Edition seems good to me. The packs for it will be a £1.

I, personally, like when there are some really tuff cards to chase. More challenging that way. I did open 250 packs though and only got one of these so seems these are going to be really hard to get.
Overall, this will be a challenging set to complete with that many card in it. For example, the logo cards are 1 in 17 packs and there are 32 of them so not that easy either.

Do you like maths? I like.
if all cards would be on average in boosters as panini sugest so count:
e.g 1 sp in 7 packs so for 32 sp we need 32*7 packs =224 packs, it meaqns that to collect 32 sp we need open 224 packs
if we count the same for others to collect need:

32 Star player - 1 in 7 packs 32*7=224packs
25 Utility player - 1 in 8 packs 25*8=200
25 One to Watch – 1 in 8 packs =200
27 Fan’s Favourite – 1 in 8 packs =216
9 Experts – 1 in 8 packs 9*8=72 (only 72!)
18 Defensive Rocks – 1 in 12 packs 18*12=216
9 Goal Stoppers – 1 in 9 packs 9*9=81
32 Team Logos – 1 pε 17 paket 32*17=544!! (to collect all 32 need 544 packs
if logo will be as often as panini suggest)
18 Game Changers – 1 in 17 packs 18*17=306
6 Top Masters – 1 in 35 packs 6*35=210
5 Double Trouble – 1 in 100 packs 5*100=500
5 Icons – 1 in 40 packs =200
5 Goal Machines – 1 in 60 packs =300

so if we opened 500 boosters we can collect on averae all cards apat from logos.o f course panini don't put cards as they suggest from my expirience.

Okay I'm not a maths genius, but if you opened 500 packs you could expect to get 5 Double Trouble cards - not 5 different Double Trouble cards. My pen and paper calculation is 1,142 packs on average to get 5 different cards (you'd also get 6.42 duplicates :D)

workings: 100 to get the first one (of 5), 125 to get one of the remaining 4, 167 to get one of the remaining 3, 250 to get one of the remaining 2, 500 to get the last one. This is an average; could be more or less :doh

So I think its a bit excessively hard

I challenge anyone to open 1,142 packs and not curse when they still need a couple of team logos and a double trouble B)

you could look at it like this
it all depends on how panini regard their ratio of hits

there are 216 insert cards
the lowest hit ratio is 1 in 7
therefore 216 x 7 = 1512 packs and that is provided no duplicates appear

until someone opens 100 packs and provides a breakdown you wont know for sure

Ugh the England players. They are wearing grey, yes GREY. It is really disturbing.

Anyway, seems though you have to get in excess of a few boxes to complete this set, and I know there are multiple member disliking the idea, or task even, but I l like it . I know blatantly that I am not going to complete the set, but it will be great to have a real treat of opening a really rare card, something which is a fine art and recently perfected by panini. Topps fail at this task, weather the card is too easy to obtain or far far too rare. Panini have made a set which combines beautiful cards with the fantastic feeling of pure exictment of getting a foil, or rare card in paninis case. And very emblematic of Brazil too, will definitely get me in the mood for summer.

The set looks fantastic, panini have made so much effort with this set, which is brilliant and should make this one of the best sets released in a while and a nice one to collect

It looks really nice this collection, and its great to see all 32 countries this time.
I hope Panini release this collection in Chile as they did in 2010
