LEGO Ideas Set, 21319 Central Perk

August 11th, 2019

LEGO have released details of the next LEGO Ideas Set, it’s the Friends Set, 21319 Central Perk.

Pieces: 1,070
Price: AUD89.99
Available: 1st September


The LEGO Group is bringing the hit comedy Friends to life in brick form for its latest LEGO Ideas set, available from September 1st to mark the show’s 25th anniversary

For any LEGO fans who may feel their building is always stuck in second gear … there is something new coming that’s perfect for you – as famous TV show Friends arrives for fans with the new LEGO Ideas: Central Perk set.

Available directly from LEGO Stores and shop.LEGO.com starting September 1, 2019, this highly collectable set is a faithful recreation of Central Perk, and it’s packed with authentic details, making it a must-have memorabilia item for the Friends’ 25th anniversary year.

As well as seven all-new LEGO Minifigures (Ross Geller, Rachel Green, Chandler Bing, Monica Geller, Joey Tribbiani, Phoebe Buffay and Gunther), the new LEGO Ideas set features the iconic seating area, including the now famous couch, armchair and 2 chairs, all of which are removable for easy play.

Builders can also recreate the stage where Phoebe Buffay performed her songs on guitar (and Ross Geller once played his keyboard), as well as including a brick-built coffee machine, cookie jar with two cookie elements, menu board element and other authentic items.

The set also includes three pillar elements in an all-new shade of green color and window with CENTRAL PERK logo decoration and even features two brick-built TV studio light rigs with translucent light-style elements.

Measuring over 4” (11cm) high, 11” (29cm) wide and 8” (22cm) deep, the set features 1,079 LEGO elements and is both great for play and display and is sure to grab attention in any room.

The LEGO Ideas Fan Designer for Central Perk was Aymeric Fievet from Normandy, France, who is passionate about TV series, movies and cartoons as well as LEGO products.

When designing the Central Perk set, Aymeric said, “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!”

LEGO Ideas offers fans the opportunity to submit their own brick creations with the chance to have their concept brought to life with the help of LEGO master designers and a share of the profits.

Fans can submit their own LEGO set ideas at ideas.LEGO.com

21319 LEGO Ideas Central Perk will be available directly via shop.LEGO.com and LEGO Stores from 1 September 2019
