Ladies and gentlemen, “Friends” are coming back! But it won’t be on TV. Instead, we will get to play as the six iconic characters ourselves in LEGO form.
LEGO is teasing a new Friends Central Perk build set from the iconic TV series. It will feature Chandler, Joey, Ross, Rachel, Monica, and Phoebe as minifigures along with the famous cafe.
LEGO isn’t saying much about the new set. The company is just teasing it on social media for now.
But the LEGO Friends set comes just in time for the 25th anniversary of the debut of the show. It’s not the first new Friends-themed merchandise to come out this year because of that.
The LEGO Central Perk is created by LEGO fan Aymeric Fievet. His concept used 1719 pieces to recreate the famous cafe. Will the official building set be the same? So far it’s too early to tell.
All LEGO says is that this is going to be “The one with LEGO bricks”. This is a spin on the way Friends’ episodes were named before. Fans expect the set to hit the stores really soon. It seems bound to happen in the coming few weeks.
