LEGO announce German National Football Team minifigures series

An interesting new partnership has been struck between LEGO and the DFB which will see the German National Football Team produced in a minifigure series.

An interesting new partnership has been struck between LEGO and the DFB which will see the German National Football Team produced in a minifigure series.

To tie in with the upcoming Euro 2016 championships, 15 players and coach Joachim Low will be available priced at €2.99 from May 14 2016, but sadly only in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

This is a very interesting development. I have always been surprised at the lack of sports licensing that LEGO has managed, although they have had NBA and NHL in the past.

I collected all the Lego Football kits from the late 90s, and was gutted there were no more in production.

I did hear at some point late last year that there were plans to have a Premier League licensed range of minifigs, although haven’t heard of anything since.

Either way, this is a step in the right direction.

The list of Germany players available are:

  • 1 Manuel Neuer
  • 2 Shkodran Mustafi
  • 4 Benedikt Höwedes
  • 5 Mats Hummels
  • 6 Sami Khedira
  • 7 Bastian Schweinsteiger
  • 8 Mesut Özil
  • 9 André Schürrle
  • 13 Thomas Müller
  • 17 Jerome Boateng
  • 18 Toni Kroos
  • 19 Mario Götze
  • 20 Christoph Kramer
  • 21 Marco Reus
  • 23 Max Kruse
  • Bundestrainer Joachim Löw
