Durval said (in the comments):

Ed, this figure could be related to soccer, in tribute of history between Benoit and Hezequias divided into two Communitie and also Benoit playing with the little story of the "Footix mascot" =^b. Anyway, it was fun and would be a good souvenir

Ed, I've been thinking a Wiki Ninja stick that was closer than is Brazilian soccer and only came an image in my mind. A stick figure with "yellow shirt", "blue shorts" and a traditional ball (black and white).

As you can guess, I made a fresh batch of Wiki Ninja Stick Figures for this! I decided to go with green, yellow, and blue. Let's take a look…

This one (above) can be used for any Wiki Ninja soccer fans! Now some color…

For this Brazil version, we start to see some of the yellow and green! Now a slight difference…

Slight difference in the Ninja headband… no black outline. Let's drop some color from that ball…

Okay. Now he needs some clothes! Let's give him some shorts…

 

Great! Now a shirt!

Looking good! Now let's do this one with the colored ball…

Okay. And one with no color on the ball and a black ninja headband…

Alright! Let's try it with blue shorts…

Next here's the blue shorts but with a green headband…

And without the yellow shirt…

And switch out the headband for a black one…

And finally let's try that with the green shorts and the black headband…

  3. Zeca Lima says:

    Hi Ed. I liked the option "Alright! Let’s try it with blue shorts "represents well the colors of our soccer selection. Thank you.

  4. Durval Ramos says:

    Oh Ed, thanks! The figures are wonderful. I think that figures more look like the Brazilian soccer is the "WikiNinjaSoccerBrazil09.jpg", but the "WikiNinjaSoccerBrazil04.jpg" figure reminds me of the Brazilian boys playing soccer on the beach. Thanks Ed,
    his homage was great !!!

    Hello Ed, your stickers are great. I’m very sorry, that I underestimated your talent during the challenge. Otherwise I would have translated much more articles.

  7. Bruno Lewin - MSFT says:

    These are awesome!

  8. Ed Price - MSFT says:

    Hezequias, so you mean blue shorts, yellow shirt, and black headband? So no green? I wasn’t sure, since they seem to have all three colors. I almost forgot about the blue. =^(

  9. Ed Price - MSFT says:

    Oh, and I pulled the particular shade of green, yellow, and blue from actual Brazil soccer uniforms! =^)

  10. Ed Price - MSFT says:

    Durval, that’s great! Ha! A bunch of shirtless boys playing soccer in green shorts? They just need the ninja bandanas/headbands! =^)

  11. Ed Price - MSFT says:

    Carsten, Hahaha! Well, we will have a future translation challenge coming and more chances! Last year, Horizon Net won the Graduate Collection of stick figures. And he won for German!
