Lego celebrates ‘Friends’ 25th anniversary with Central Perk set

Lego celebrates ‘Friends’ 25th anniversary with Central Perk set”

Consisting of 1,070 pieces, LEGO's Central Perk Friends set launches September 1 for $60.

The toy giant announced Thursday that it will release the Lego Ideas 21319 Central Perk set, featuring building blocks for the squad's go-to Manhattan coffee shop and figurines of Chandler, Joey, Ross, Monica, Phoebe and Rachel, in honor of the hit sitcom's 25th anniversary.

People can buy the set from 1 September.

The familiar seating area with the couch, armchair, and two additional chairs for friends is removable, as you can also adjust the stage where Phoebe infamously performed her music. So if you want to leave Gunther out (who is a minifigure in this playset), then you can do that.

Unlike some other recent Lego Ideas sets, the final model isn't that much different from the original concept and quickly gained enough supporters to make it through to last autumn's Lego Ideas set review.

The Friends set recreates the show's signature Central Perk coffee shop location and comes with mini figures based on Rachel (Jennifer Aniston), Ross (David Schwimmer), Monica (Courteney Cox), Chandler (Matthew Perry), Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) and Joey (Matt LeBlanc), along with Central Perk manager Gunther (James Michael Tyler).

Other accessory elements in this café playset include a newspaper, 15 coffee cups, and a "Reserved" sign, plus 3 vases and buildable flowers.

And when that Lego set is inspired by Friends?
