The Merlin sticker albums have taken the place of the Panini albums that were issued for the classic trilogy. Merlin issues albums worldwide (except for the US), making it possible to collect the album in multiple languages. Stickers tend to be the same worldwide, although occasionally a local area will have a small number of additional stickers. The albums are fun, and generally durable. One way Merlin stickers differ from the older Panini stickers is a tendency not to split images across two or more stickers. It is also more common to have stickers that are larger in size as well as with glossy finishes. This series of stickers includes special LEGO stickers, featuring Lego characters on each sticker.
