Bobby Moore OBE
Our staggeringly lifelike figure shows Moore in jubilant celebration after leading England to a 4-2 victory over West Germany in the 1966 FIFA World Cup™. Smiling triumphantly, the figure is dressed in vintage England kit and holds aloft a replica of the Jules Rimet Cup, which has been faithfully replicated by our talented studio artists.
