The second 2021 set designed by the LEGO Group’s Vice President of Design Matthew Ashton – following this summer’s 40516 Everyone is Awesome – the 974-piece model depicts the apartment from the first season Netflix’s Queer Eye reboot, which originally debuted in 2018.
Included in the box are very faithful minifigure versions of the Fab Five – food and wine expert Antoni Porowski, fashion expert Tan France, culture expert Karamo Brown, design expert Bobby Berk and grooming expert Jonathan Van Ness – and two versions of Season 4 guest Kathi Dooley, pre- and post-makeover.
Take a closer look at everything 10291 Queer Eye – The Fab 5 Loft has to offer in our detailed review, which considers the build, minifigures, and value for money presented in the £89.99 / $99.99 / €99.99 set. In short: it feels pretty expensive next to the likes of 21328 Seinfeld, but makes up for it through its incredibly detailed minifigures and printed elements.
Its mostly-white box art also represents a notable departure for the wider LEGO for Adults range, finally proving an exception to the black box mantra that’s permeated the entire portfolio since May 2020.
