LEGO Football 40634 Icons of Play revealed by Certified Store

A Japanese LEGO Certified Store has revealed the first images of 40634 Icons of Play, a football-themed set timed perfectly for the FIFA Women’s World Cup this summer.

The 899-piece model includes 15 minifigures, among which are real-life footballers such as Megan Rapinoe, Yuki Nagasato, Asisat Oshoala and Sam Kerr. Their kit designs take a similar approach to the many minifigures in 21337 Table Football – inspiration that has clearly also followed through to the design of the set, which likewise includes a spectator stand next to its pitch.

Or its half a pitch, anyway: you’re only getting the one goal here, so you’ll need two copies of 40634 Icons of Play to recreate a full five-a-side game. The bad news is that the set only includes red jerseys and shorts, so you’ll have trouble setting up two opposing teams. Still, two copies of the set will also bag you two stands and two team dug-outs, along with two winners’ podiums. (You maybe don’t need two of that last one.)

The Certified Store listing states 40634 Icons of Play will launch June 6, with a price tag of 16,480 yen. That’s roughly in line with 75336 Inquisitor Transport Scythe, which retails for £89.99 / $99.99 / €99.99, so we’re probably looking at a similar price for this set. But hey – putting two together is still cheaper than a single copy of 21337 Table Football at RRP…

Judging by the product number, we can expect 40634 Icons of Play to be available exclusively through and LEGO Stores. And it’s clearly intended to hit shelves just ahead of the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023, which kicks off in Australia and New Zealand on July 20.

We’ll hopefully find out more details on 40634 Icons of Play – including the full minifigure roster and international pricing – soon. Keep an eye on Brick Fanatics for more as we get it.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
