This year’s Friends-themed calendar includes micro-doll (rather than mini-doll) versions of five key characters from Heartlake City, along with relevant mini-builds like a Christmas tree, fireplace and a snowman. We’ve had a rough idea of its contents since early June, when a grainy image appeared in a Japanese consumer catalogue, but this is the first full reveal of everything it has to offer.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case.

Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
