The friends got together for a special reunion episode recently. To add to that, LEGO VIP members also enjoyed early access to this LEGO Friends The Apartments set. Meanwhile, non-VIP members can get this special-edition set starting June 1st.
Consisting of 2,048 pieces, it features the renowned New York apartments of Monica and Rachel as well as Chandler and Joey. These pieces also come with fun accessories that allow you to relive some of the sitcom’s famous scenes. From the classic Thanksgiving turkey, Mrs. Braverman’s cheesecake, the big poking device to Phoebe’s dollhouse and creepy painting, and more!
The Lego set also comes with Minifigures of all your famous characters in their memorable outfits. Ross with his tight leather pants; Rachel with her plaid skirt; Monica with her apron; Phoebe with her floral cardigan; Chandler with his loud tie; And then, there’s Joey who’s basically wearing everything Chandler owns. Last but not the least, Janice completes the crew with her leopard outfit.
This special-edition set comes after the triumph of the Central Perk set released in 2019 as part of the series’ 25th-anniversary celebration. LEGO set designer Anderson Ward Grubb also shared a bit about the innovative process of creating this set.
“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.”
When completely assembled, the set measures 4″ high, 10″ wide, and 13″ deep, making a wonderful decorative piece for your shelves and tabletops. You have the opportunity to display the apartments either individually or together through the adjacent hallway included in the set. The set also comes with lighting kit pieces, transforming the apartments into a miniature filming studio replica.
