Just in Time for the 25th Anniversary, It’s LEGO ‘Friends’ — Not Exactly a Reunion, But Still a Lot of Fun!
As Friends gets closer to its 25th anniversary next month, LEGO has decided to celebrate in a very special way: They’ve created a pretty cool box set that will bring the characters to life. No telling what Courtney Cox, Matthew Perry, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Jennifer Aniston and David Schwimmer think about their plastic counterpoints, but they should be worried: these guys will never get older or ask for a raise.
The set features mini-figures of the show’s stars, as well as a recreation of New York City’s Central Perk coffeeshop, which is, of course, the fictional spot where the gang hung out (when they weren’t at their oversized apartments). Besides the six main characters, we also get a Gunther (James Michael Tyler), the iconic sitting area, including the now famous couch, armchair and two chairs — all of which are removable for easy play as well. There’s also the cafe’s stage, where Phoebe often performed and a brick-built coffee machine, cookie jar (with two cookie elements), menu board element and other authentic items. On top of that, there are two brick-built TV studio light rigs with translucent light-style elements.
Offers LEGO in a statement, “This highly collectable set is a faithful recreation of Central Perk, and it’s packed with authentic details, making it a must-have memorabilia item for the Friends‘ 25th Anniversary year.”
The Lego Friends set will be available beginning September 1. Measuring 4″ high, 11″ wide and 8″ deep — and featuring 1,079 LEGO pieces — it will be priced at $79.
