Launching this June.
Just last week, LEGO teased that it is releasing a new set based on the hit TV show Friends. After the release of the LEGO set that featured the iconic Central Perk coffee shop, the new set will feature the famous apartments of Joey, Chandler, Rachel and Monica and yes, it includes the hallway.
The LEGO Friends Apartments Set will come in 2,048 pieces and will also include various features and props that would easily be recognized by Friends fans. Some of these props include a turkey that pays tribute to the famous Thanksgiving episode, the canoe that Joey and Chandler once had in their apartment, and even Phoebe’s dollhouse that got burned down. LEGO made sure to include every memorable prop on the set. There’s also the giant poking device, Phoebe’s creepy art piece Gladys, Pat the dog, chick and duck, and yes, even the cheesecake that fell on the floor.
Aside from these props, the LEGO Friends Apartment Set will include new minifigures of the six main characters each with its own memorable clothing. Additionally, Chandler’s famous ex-flame Janice will also have its own minifigure, which we were hoping to say ‘oh my god!’.
“Following the success of the LEGO Ideas Central Perk set, we wanted to develop another tribute to this iconic TV show with a focus on the famous apartments. We worked directly from production photos of the set as well as watching and re-watching a lot of episodes so we could capture as many iconic moments as possible. One fun challenge was figuring out how to represent some aspects that change over the course of the show that appear in some episodes and not in others. I am looking forward to seeing if the eagle-eyed fans will spot them,” said Anderson Ward Grubb, LEGO Set Designer.
The LEGO Friends Apartments set will be available at LEGO Certified Stores across the world including the UAE starting June 1st, 2021.
