LEGO DFB – The Mannschaft Minifigure Series (71014) Completely Sold Out

LEGO DFB German National Football Team Minifigure Series (71014)

Less than a month after the release of the LEGO DFB – The Mannschaft Minifigure Series (71014), it is now completely sold out and LEGO will not be producing any more. If you didn’t know, they were only available in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland as well as on Shop@Home Europe. The only way now to get them is probably through eBay or BrickLink unless you know someone that was able to get them. If you were one of the lucky ones that was able to get them, consider yourself pretty lucky as there was a very limited run of these minifigures.

LEGO DFB German National Football Team Minifigure Series (71014)

If you’re a LEGO Collectible Minifigures completionist, you would know that the DFB German National Football Team (71014) will be released next week in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. If you’re lucky to be in those countries or have someone picking them up for you, you would know that the easiest way to find each minifigure is to get a complete box since there’s really no way to feel for them.

Fortuantely, someone from the Singapore Brick Users Group has managed to get a full box and has given a breakdown of how many of each German player will be in a box.

If you are looking them, good luck trying to feel for them as they don’t really have any easy identifiers besides the hair pieces. Each player will have a soccer ball piece while the coach will have a clipboard tile piece. Each jersey is unique with their names printed on the back and if you look closely, there’s also the Adidas logo on front of the jerseys.

LEGO DFB German National Football Team Minifigure Series (71014) Revealed

Earlier this year at the 2016 Nuremberg Toy Fair, it was announced that there will be a special LEGO Collectible Minifigure series that is based on the German National Football Team, DFB (Die Mannschaft). It looks like we have a first look at the LEGO DFB Minifigure Series (71014) courtesy of PromoBricks.

As you can see above, there are 15 players, including the goalkeeper, along with the coach Joachim Löw. It is unknown at this time which players are chosen for the team but if you look closely at the jerseys, we do see the Adidas logo which means there could be some sort of licensing agreement with the clothing company.

It was previously known that The Team (71014) will be available May 14 and will be retailing for €2.99. It is also speculated that they will only be available in Germany.

Update: The minifigures have been officially announced. They will be available in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.

LEGO German Football Team Collectible Minifigures Announced

Way back in August, I reported on a rumor that LEGO will be producing a special Collectible Minifigure series featuring the German national football team. Today at the 2016 Nuremberg Toy Fair, it was announced that there will indeed be a special series (71014), exclusive to Germany, consisting of 16 minifigures of some of the players on DFB, Die Mannschaft (The Team). They are scheduled to be released in May just in time for the 2016 UEFA European Championship.

LEGO German Football (Soccer) Team Collectible Minifigures Rumored for 2016

Here’s something intersting for you football fans (soccer fans here in the US). Sir von Lego over on Eurobricks has reported that there will be a LEGO Collectible Minifigure series featuring the German football team dedicated for the 2016 UEFA European Championship. I assume this will be similar to the Team Great Britain series (8909) back in 2012 for the London Olympic Games. There’s no word on whether this is a worldwide release or be exclusive to Europe like it was last time. Thanks to CM4Sci for the heads up.
