We have been treated to a sneak-peek of the brand new LEGO collection heading our way and we couldn't BE any more excited! Have you guessed it yet? A Friends LEGO set is coming out! Now full details of the new Central Perk set have been revealed and we can see Joey, Phoebe, Monica, Chandler, Rachel and Ross in LEGO form!
After the teaser from LEGO a few days ago, we can now reveal full details of the new LEGO Ideas Friends Central Perk set. It's a LEGO recreation of the Central Perk café TV studio set packed with authentic details.
There's the iconic seating area with a couch, armchair and 2 chairs for the friends, and that's removable for easy play, and you also get the stage where Phoebe performed 'Smelly Cat', plus loads of accessories.
This set also includes 7 new minifigures. But wait... there's only six 'Friends' right? Well as this is the coffee shop you get LEGO toy minifigures of Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Joey, Phoebe and also Gunther as well! The Ross minifigure has a spookily accurate facial expression, Phoebe has her guitar ready to break into song, and Joey even carries a slice of pizza, y'know, just in case he gets hungry.
The LEGO Ideas Friends Central Perk set will go on sale on 1st September 2019 at The LEGO Shop* and in the UK will retail for £64.99. It's a 1070 piece set recommended for ages 16+, so it would be a challenging build for anyone younger.
Our first sneak peek was just a few days ago, when the building-block company revealed a teaser of the upcoming LEGO collection on Twitter with a short video. In the clip, Lego figurines of the gang can be seen sitting on the iconic orange couch in front of the fountain recognisable from the sitcom’s theme song. They captioned the video “The one with Lego bricks. Coming soon.” The upcoming Lego set coincides with the 25th anniversary of the beloved sitcom, which premiered on 22 September 1994.
