The Nike Pro Ronaldino, Roger Federer and Kobe Bryant figures which were designed by Hong Kong figure master Michael Lau, will be on sale at Sold Out starting July 23rd, 11AM French time. Only a one set (includes three figures) will be available but it’s going to cost you quite a bit as it retails for 3500 Euros. However, all proceeds from this sale will be donated to the charity arc-en-ciel, an organization that helps young children with physical difficulties. If you want to do some good and own a set of these very rare figures (limited to 250 sets worldwide and not available to the public), then start refreshing the Sold Out page!
