Legendary sitcom Friends turns 25 in September and boyyyyy does that make me feel old.

The very image of the super six sat on that tatty orange sofa in Central Perk invokes all sorts of 90’s nostalgia, and of course you can’t mention nostalgia without talking about LEGO – the kids/adult toy that I never had the patience to enjoy.

These two behemoth of pop culture have, until now, remained exclusive, but worlds are about to collide as LEGO have unveiled the first look at their very special Friends set.

The Friends LEGO features a ton of toy-sized replicas from the actual show, including the stage where Phoebe performs ‘Smelly Cat,’ as well as Ross’s keyboard, Rachel’s tray and coffee cup, Monica’s muffin, Joey’s pizza box, pizza slice, and “man bag,” Chandler’s laptop also makes an appearance, as well as Phoebe’s guitar, Gunther’s broom and more than 1,000 other Easter eggs from the beloved show.

There’s a Gunther for crying out loud. If you’ve never dreamed of owning a little toy Gunther then are you even a Friends fan?

The Lego set will allow users to make their own TV set, with rigging and lights so they can feel like they’re part of the sitcom’s creation.

The set will launch on September 1st, and when it does, you’ll be able to get it for only £64.99 here – which seems like a bargain if you’re into Friends/LEGO/Friends and LEGO.

As the LEGO site states:

The CENTRAL PERK café construction toy features the iconic main seating area including a sofa, armchair, 2 chairs and a table; service area with a brick-built coffee machine, service counter, cash register, cookie jar with 2 cookie elements, menu board element and other authentic items; a stage for musical performances with a sofa; extra seats and tables; 3 pillar elements in a new-for-September-2019 green color; umbrella stand with 2 umbrella elements; window with ‘CENTRAL PERK’ logo decoration; entrance doors; and 2 brick-built TV studio light rigs with translucent light-style elements.

Everyone’s going mad for it (I sound like Bez from Happy Mondays) including real-life Chandler actor Matthew Perry, who pointed out that Mr. Bing was always the most attractive member of the group.

Could you really BE any more excited?

Probably, but nevertheless this is still very cool.

Something tells me this is going to fly off the shelves.
