The set is packed with elements and builds that reference to the series, including a Thanksgiving turkey for Monica to put on her head, Joey and Chandler’s canoe as furniture and Phoebe’s dollhouse ready to go up in flames. There’s also the poking device, Gladys, the floor cheesecake, Pat the Dog, the chick and duck, and many more.
‘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,’ said 10292 The Friends Apartments Model Designer Anderson Ward Grubb. ‘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.’
