Fans of the Friends television show clearly made an impact on the LEGO® Group. In 2019, LEGO® Ideas released a set inspired by the Central Perk café from the show. Today, we learned that Central Perk gets a sequel, implying the first was quite popular. This June, you can expand your collection with the iconic apartments set. Get the details on FRIENDS Apartments coming soon from the LEGO® Group below.
The official press release describes the set as follows:
Following the hugely popular LEGO Ideas Central Perk set, which was released in 2019, the LEGO Friends Apartments set is complete with iconic features and props, such as the classic moment when Monica put the Thanksgiving turkey on her head, the one where Joey and Chandler only had a canoe as furniture and when Phoebe’s dollhouse went up in flames.
Other accessories from the show include the Poking Device; Gladys, Phoebe’s creepy art piece; the cheesecake that falls on the floor; Pat the Dog; the chick and duck, and many more. The set also gives fans the real sense of the original filming studio with set lights and allows you to display both apartments either separately or linked together with the hallway.
Additional features of the set include; new minifigures of the whole gang, in some of their most memorable outfits; Rachel’s iconic plaid skirt; Ross’ too tight leather pants; Monica in an apron; Phoebe in a classic floral look; Chandler in a suit and loud designer tie; and Joey wearing all of Chandler’s clothes. And for the first time ever, Janice will also feature as a minifigure in a classic over-the-top gaudy outfit.

I am really excited to share that True North Bricks already has a copy of this set. The LEGO® Group graciously sent a pre-release copy. The set looks like a lot of fun. It also comes at a good value. Additionally, compared to other 18+ sets, it has a good number of Minifigures. However, it is worth stressing “compared to other 18+ sets”. These kits tend to have less characters compared to LEGO® themes in general. However, I will share more on that in the upcoming set review. Are you looking forward to the FRIENDS Apartments coming from the LEGO® Group? Feel free to comment below or reach out on social media.
Until next time,
