An extraordinary collectible figure is ready to enter the homes of fans of Captain Tsubasa, better known as Holly & Benji in Italy. On a scale of 1/7, the figure shows the mythical clash between Tsubasa's phoenix shot and Xiao Junguang's dragon shot.

When Tsubasa moves to a new city to start his senior year of elementary school, his best friend is a soccer ball. The soccer game is his a great passion and after meeting Bruce Harper, he becomes the captain of his school's team. After meeting Roberto, Tsubasa improves his technique day by day to become one of the most feared players in the national championship.

But Holly's career doesn't stop with her school career. The young man continued on his way until he was appointed World Youth by the Japanese U19 national team. He meets during this very important event a new fearsome rival, Xiao Junguang. Attacking the midfielder and the ace of the Chinese national team as well as the owner of FC Bayern Munich, Xiao is an individualistic person who despises the group game. But especially in the Asian youth championship, the rivalry between the two is coming to a head.

The clash between Holly and Xiao is one of the most exciting in the opera and fans of the series cannot miss this new one 1/7 scale figure. The figure epically represents the iconic technical gestures of the two players, Tsubasa's Phoenix Shot and Xiao's Dragon Shot. Which of the two do you like best?
