Closing thoughts…

Even as someone who normally passes on Friends sets, I will admit that they often come with great accessories and hairpieces. I see some new ones in this selection. However, what interests me the most is the Main Street Building. That set has some MOC potential. I cannot remember seeing anything similar in the Friends line before. The last few waves of Friends releases have felt tired. Main Street Building seems like something a little more fresh. What do you think? Feel free to comment below or reach out on social media.

Until next time,
