The latest LEGO Ideas set will be launching on November 1, when 21337 Table Football arrives, along with its diverse line-up of 22 minifigure players. The set is just the latest in a series of brick-built football-themed models that dates back to LEGO System World Cup products that appeared in 1998.
The LEGO Group has continued its celebration of the beautiful game over the years, with recent additions to its range of football sets including stadiums, BrickHeadz and even a blocky shoe. With that in mind, here are a number of winning LEGO football models that are currently available:
3 – 10282 Adidas Originals Superstar
A unique collaboration, 10282 Adidas Originals Superstar is a brick-based version of the iconic sports shoe. Designed in close partnership between the LEGO Group and Adidas, the white trainer is instantly-recognisable, includes a pair of real laces and comes in an authentic shoebox.
2 – BrickHeadz
Two new BrickHeadz models joined the theme this year, with 40541 Manchester United Go Brick Me and 40542 FC Barcelona Go Brick Me launching on August 1. Both sets include two sticker sheets, allowing builders to customise the player number on the back of each character’s team shirt.
1 – LEGO ICONS Stadiums
Depending on which territory you’re in, there are a few LEGO ICONS football stadium models still available. 10299 Real Madrid – Santiago Bernabéu Stadium can be picked up from the UK, US and Europe online stores, whilst American fans of football (or soccer), can also grab the hard-to-find 10284 Camp Nou – FC Barcelona and soon-to-retire 10272 Old Trafford – Manchester United.
If you’re thinking of purchasing any of the above football-themed sets, you might want to hold on until October 10 when the latest double VIP event starts. In addition, there will also be plenty of LEGO GWP items available from next week that can be stacked together into an impressive haul of freebies.
21337 Table Football is scheduled for release on November 1 and will retail for £214.99 / $249.99 / €249.99. Take a look here for more information on the forthcoming LEGO Ideas set, as well as a full gallery of images.
