Earlier this year, we reported that LEGO confirmed a new line of Collectible Minifigure (CMF) that focuses exclusively on Germany’s football team the DFB, Die Mannschaft (simply dubbed as ‘The Team’) set to be released on May 14th. Announced during the Nuremberg Toy Fair last January, the said CMF will feature 16 collectible minifigures though it wasn’t mentioned who among the Team’s players will be included to enjoy the distinct recognition of being LEGOlized in minifigure form. Watch the Nuremberg announcement below.
German LEGO fan site Promo Bricks just reported a ‘Save-The-Date’ invitation for the CMF’s great reveal scheduled for April 12. The Team’s minifigures (71014) will be introduced via live streaming along with one of the members of Germany’s DFB. With the much awaited reveal of LEGO’s official Disney CMF, this latest minifigure series is sure to be another hit among minifigure collectors. Though it was already announced that the Team’s minifigures will only be available in Germany, we’re still hoping that these minifigures will find their way here in the US, and that LEGO will eventually expand this offering to all football fans around the world.
We’ll keep you updated on the developments of this unveiling especially as we wait for the details of the weblink in which we can watch the live stream. We can expect more news from Promo Bricks within the next two weeks, so be sure to stay tuned here at the Brick Show.
