Ideas #027: 21319 - Friends Central Perk

Recommended Posts

If they were going to made a set based on an old out of production comedy... they should have went for the obvious choice.

I predict a lot of early sales for the Friends set, then stagnation, then good discounts, then a healthy bump on the aftermarket as long as the show continues to be broadcast broadly on different streaming mediums. If that ends, these could be as hard to move as Adventure Time.

On a side note, how much fun will the "lego friends" search on eBay and Amazon be? You'll get ancient comedies and pink sets.

^Agreed, I would be down for a Seinfeld set. I never watched Friends...

This is a hard pass for me.

Unsubscribe.

Sorry, just rewatched TLM2, its better the second time around any my daughters have been watching on repeat.

It might do well because LOTS of people love Friends, including my wife. I personally think that the show is stupid, and not at the same level of Seinfeld or other comedies, but that's just my opinion before we inevitably buy one on day one. Happy wife, sad wallet?

Sure Seinfeld is obvious, but if I had my pick of "old out of production comedy"...

"Happy Days" (& it's 5 or 6 spin-off shows like L&S, M&M etc.)   would have been better.

Where's the monkey?

This could possibly been my least favorite part of the entire series.  Ross and that damn monkey was stupid.

Ha, no kidding, but I'm glad they are doing this with some iconic shows.  A Seinfeld set has to be on the horizon, it would be just as popular as this.  My wife and I were just married during Season 10, so yeah, they are a bit late on this.

This appears to be a Season 1 set from the wardrobe choices and I'm glad Gunther got included.

With Hulu, Netflix, etc, it may be too late in the context of hitting at it's peak in 1996 (or whenever), but there is a new generation of people watching that show and familiar with it.

I think it's a cool set and I thought the show was Meh during it's time.

I'll admit, I wouldn't mind having a Soup Nazi minifig or Festivus pole.

Not bad for $59.99.  Better than The Flintstones set at the same RRP.

Agreed. The part selection is cool but I could care less about the theme. Never got into the show AT ALL.

There were those stories about a month back that Friends is the second-most streamed show on Netflix.  I'd have to guess that factored into their decision, because why wouldn't the lessons learned from TBBT apply?

My wife still watches it nightly.  I also hear parents saying their kids enjoy watching it too these days.

Wow! I'm thoroughly surprised. I thought this set wouldn't turn out that well, like the Flintstones set. Just seemed like too much detail to cram into a small set and still do it justice.... but gotta say, this looks fantastic! Friends is very popular show to this day. This set has a lot of potential..
