The sport of Australian Rules Football is as unique to Australia as Gaelic Football is to Ireland, as well as being the oldest Football league in the history of sports. What better way to celebrate the game than a special edition series of Minifigures for the Australian market!
Similar to the Collectable Minifigs, and London Olympic Minifigures, the AFL Aussie Rules Footy Figs could be available only in Australia.
Footy fans are known for being avid collectors and these would make a splendid addition to their collections.
All 18 teams could be represented, as well as two extras; A Goal Umpire and a Boundary/Field Umpire, and each in a mystery poly-bag.
Using various hair molds from previous Minifigures, each character could have a different design/colour hairpiece and face, which of course can be mixed and matched with other figures so eventually one could own a few AFL team in figures.
The players wear very short shorts, so the leg printing will also reflect this and stop at the curve in the minifigs leg.
LEGO is very expensive in Australia, but we are a loyal and captive audience, this would be a great collectible for us to own.
The current teams in the professional Australian Football League are;
Gold Coast Suns
Greater Western Sydney Giants
North Melbourne Kangaroos
Port Adelaide Power
St Kilda Saints
West Coast Eagles
They are also pictured in this order.
Hope you can vote for this idea as I would really love to collect these for my son!
Each minifig could come with a neck/back piece with two studs on the back for clipping numbered tiles to their backs- in each polybag could be 2 1x2 tiles with random number from 0-9 - that way numbers can be mixed and matched between minifigs.
Also, each minifig could come with one of 6 props, they could include;
Football - Red Daytime Sherrin
Football - Yellow Night Sherrin
Small punching bag for training
Australian flag piece and rod.
1 x 7cm and 1 x 14cm White Rods for goal posts.
Drink Bottle and Towel
The goal umpire (Green) should come with two small white flags.
