LEGO’s New Intricate 2,048-Piece ‘Friends’ Set Couldn’t BE Anymore Precise

They don’t know that we know the dedication poured into this new, comprehensive LEGO F.R.I.E.N.D.S Apartments Set. LEGO’s latest build, comprising the apartments of Monica and Rachel and Chandler and Joey, as well as the connecting hallway, is made up of a whopping 2,048 pieces so you can recreate the hit sitcom’s best moments.

The six mainstays are, of course, part of the elaborate set. Besides Ross, Rachel, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, and Joey, however, there’s also Chandler’s ex Janice, whose recurring presence would shake yet endear fans forever.

You’d have to have keen ‘unagi’ to spot all the jokes peppered around this kit. Standout pieces are the Thanksgiving turkey that Monica stuck her head into, Joey and Chandler’s canoe and the chick and duck, the Pat the Dog sculpture, and Phoebe’s dollhouse. But there are also easily-overlooked Easter eggs like the cheesecake shared between Rachel and Chandler, and Phoebe’s spooky ‘Gladys’ portrait.

Television buffs might appreciate the set lights added to the kit, giving fans a glimpse at the original filming studio.

The hallway between both apartments can be detached, just in case Monica feels the temptation to gamble her home away again.

Evidently, it took great lengths to finalize this set. LEGO set designer Anderson Ward Grubb explained that the team drew upon production photos, as well as watched a re-watched “a lot of episodes” in order to do the show justice.

“One fun challenge was figuring out how to represent some aspects that change over the course of the show that appear in some episodes and not in others,” Grubb added. “I am looking forward to seeing if the eagle-eyed fans will spot them.”

The Friends-themed set, priced at US$149.99, will first be released exclusively to LEGO VIP members on 19 May before heading to LEGO’s retail stores and website on 1 June.
