With LEGO Ideas Friends 21319 Central Perk proving a difficult set to get at LEGO.com, fans now have a new place to try and hunt it down. The nostalgia-soaked 1990s sitcom inspired set has been found at Tesco stores for £65.
Ross Geller, Rachel Green, Chandler Bing, Monica Geller, Joey Tribbiani and Phoebe Buffay are all included in the set. It builds the seating area that regularly saw the cast delivering one-liners while drinking coffee, including the couch, chairs and armchair.
“The challenge was to visualize passages of the series to allow me to recreate the furniture and the characters in as much detail as possible. The assembly of this model took me about a week after finding the necessary references. During the voting period, the set was changed several times,” said fan designer Aymeric Fievet, who submitted the project to the LEGO Ideas platform.
LEGO Ideas Friends 21319 Central Perk has caught the attention of some of the show’s cast, with Matthew Perry, who played Chandler on the show, and James Michael Tyler, who played Gunther, both commenting on the set.
