Queer Eye Loft Set Revealed
The LEGO® Group just announced a new IP for the 18+ (Creator Expert) line. This October, fans of the hit Netflix series, Queer Eye are in for a treat. The Fab Five are coming your way in Minifigure form, complete with the Queer Eye Loft seen in the show. Let me begin by saying the Minifigures are awesome. I have not watched the show frequently, but the characters were instantly recognizable. And white masonry bricks? Can I get a “Yaaaas Queen”?
The set’s head designer was none other than Matthew Ashton, VP of Design at the LEGO® Group. Ashton also brought us Everyone is Awesome earlier this year. When commenting on the set in the official press release, he shared the following:
Queer Eye has had such a positive impact on so many people’s lives which is why we are excited for this collaboration. It reminds us that we need to take time to celebrate kindness and help build each other up. In this set we’ve captured themes central to both the LEGO Group and the show – caring, creativity, learning and fun. While the Fab Five rebuild people’s lives, we are on a mission to inspire people to get creative and help rebuild a more positive world.
- NAME: Queer Eye – The Fab 5 Loft
- SET #: 10291
- THEME: 18+ (Creator Expert)
- COST: $139.99 CAD
- BRICK COUNT: 974
- MINIFIGURES: 7
- RELEASE DATE: October 1, 2021

The Fab Five loft has lot going on for fans of the show and LEGO® enthusiasts alike. First off, you acquire seven new Minifigures including the Fab Five and Kathi Dooley (pre- and post- makeover versions). In addition to the new prints on the characters, Tan features a new silver hairpiece. However, builders are probably most excited about the white masonry bricks. This is the first time we get this color variant of the brick. It might be worth buying more than one of these just to get those bricks!
The loft layout is reminiscent of the Seinfeld set from earlier this year, but modernized and redone. That is actually fitting considering the subject matter. As a Minifigure collector, I am excited for all the new prints and accessories. Additionally, you get a solid number of characters for set in this size area. In terms of cost-per-brick, it is not bad either. I might just pick this up. What are your thoughts on the Queer Eye Loft? Feel free to comment below or reach out on social media.
Until next time,
