After a quick hint yesterday about the upcoming release, today LEGO announced the September 1 release of LEGO Ideas Central Perk based on the Friends TV show. While I was never a huge fan of the show, this set looks pretty appealing to fans, and LEGO fans.
The LEGO set is based on the famous Central Perk cafe TV set and even features 2 studio lights on the side to enhance the feeling of a filming set.
Aside from the spot-on minifigure representations of the cast, eagle-eyed fans are noticing the new dark green pillars or lampposts in this set. The set offers some flexibility in layout and styling for play or recreating your favorite scene.
