Timely for the reunion special, the Lego Friends Apartments set recreates the gang’s iconic homes in brick form. Yes, Lego has just delivered yet another build inspired by the hit comedy series. The new set is the second inspired by Friends, following the Lego Ideas Central Perk set, released in 2019.
Famous for its little plastic bricks, Lego has done a great job leveraging off the popularity of hit TV shows. Thus far, it has released builds inspired by Stranger Things and The Big Bang Theory. Its latest, tributes one of America’s most beloved sitcoms.
Friends ran on NBC from 1994 to 2004, an impressive run of ten seasons. The show revolved around the lives of its six main characters – Phoebe, Monica, Rachel, Chandler, Joey, and Ross. The sitcom starred Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Matthew Perry, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer.
Much of the show takes place within the New York apartment complex where four of the main characters live. Naturally, it was only fitting for Lego to deliver a set that recreates these memorable abodes.
The One With The Lego Friends Apartments Set
