Finally, “Friends” Is Getting Their Own LEGO Set
The much-anticipated Lego set based on TV classic Friends is so the best way to celebrate the show’s 25th anniversary. They warned it was coming and now it’s been officially announced: a Lego version of Central Perk and all six Friends characters (and Gunther).
Not only do you get minifigures for Ross Geller, Rachel Green, Chandler Bing, Monica Geller, Joey Tribbiani, and Phoebe Buffay but there’s the famous couch and two chairs, Phoebe’s little stage area, and the shop counter with a brick-built coffee machine. As an extra neat touch it’s not actually meant to be a real coffee shop but the stage they filmed the show on, so you can see two big film lights up on the bottom corners as well.
The CENTRAL PERK café construction toy features the iconic main seating area including a sofa, armchair, 2 chairs and a table; service area with a brick-built coffee machine, service counter, cash register, cookie jar with 2 cookie elements, menu board element and other authentic items; a stage for musical performances with a sofa; extra seats and tables; 3 pillar elements in a new-for-September-2019 green color; umbrella stand with 2 umbrella elements; window with ‘CENTRAL PERK’ logo decoration; entrance doors; and 2 brick-built TV studio light rigs with translucent light-style elements.
The minifigures each have their own items inspired by the TV series, including Ross’s brick-built keyboard and the following accessory elements: Rachel’s tray and coffee cup, Monica’s muffin, Joey’s pizza box, pizza slice and ‘man bag’, Chandler’s laptop, Phoebe’s guitar and Gunther’s broom.
