In massive brick-building news, a LEGO Ideas build is coming our way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the world-famous Friends sitcom, and if the Twitter teaser and consequential global hysteria is anything to go by, this is going to be the hottest LEGO build ever when it finally lands.
More details have dropped on LEGO sites around the world, and we now know that a LEGO Ideas Central Perk set is not too far away - and it has over 1000 pieces!
The set is expected to land in the US on September 1st, and while there is no release date on the Australian site just yet, it's safe to assume a similar launch date here. The price tag here in Australia is $89.99.
This set is absolutely packed with features, and is so true to the Central Perk we all know and love. The entire scene focuses on the seating area, with couch, armchairs and coffee table. There is a stage where Phoebe performed (Smelly Cat, perhaps?), the service area, entrance doors - even studio lights.
There are seven minifigures included: Rachel, Ross, Chandler, Monica, Joey, Phoebe, and Gunther as well. Extra details include a cash register, coffee machine, Joey's pizza box, Chandler's laptop, Gunther's broom, 15 coffee cups, vases and flowers, Monica's muffin, and Phoebe's guitar.
On August 6th, LEGO dropped a teaser video on its Twitter account that sent the LEGO-loving world into a frenzy. In the clip, which has been viewed over 255,000 times, we see an image from the opening sequence of Friends, but in LEGO form.
With the iconic orange couch sitting front and centre, it was a strong hint that Central Perk was a strong contender for a themed set, and we're thrilled that it is - and that Gunther is the mix, because who else will make the coffee while Rachel is having a meltdown?
Sit tight, we'll let you know when this lands in stores.
In the mean time, head over to LEGO Australia and check out what's new.
