Yesterday LEGO® at the Nurembery Toy Fair press conference announced a new exclusive minifigures special series. The series number will be 71014 and the series will appear exclusively in Germany and consist of 16 minifigures. The release is scheduled for May in the run-up to the European Championships. This is very much along the lines of the 2012 Team GB series. So those wanting a collection will need to find a German friend!
We have an official statement from The German Football Association (DFB) regarding the link up:
The LEGO® team will consist of 16 minifigures. The highly anticipated announcement of the squad will take place in the spring. From 14 May 2016, the Special Edition will then be available in stores. The figures are sold in sealed bags surprise, so that the secret which minifigure’s in the bag, is only revealed when unpacking. The retail price is 2.99 euros.
Will you want a German team and will we see minifigures.com and minifigs.me do a England or Wales team so we can have a LEGO football match?
