Just in time for the 25th anniversary of worldwide sitcom phenomenon Friends, Lego has announced the release of a special edition set for fans to recreate the show's iconic coffee shop Central Perk.

Of course, the set would not be complete without the inclusion of Lego versions of the show’s cast members: Rachel, Ross, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe and Joey. The set even includes Central Perk barista Gunther, and the famous orange couch featured in the Friends intro sequence. 

Lego announced the special edition set on Twitter on Thursday, with a teaser video replicating the Friends opening scene with miniature Lego versions of the original cast. 

Instead of simply recreating the show’s most iconic location, the product also features TV studio light rigs. The entire special edition set is made up of more than 1,000 individual pieces and has a listed dimension of 4 inches in height, 11 inches wide and 8 inches deep.

Besides the show Friends, Lego also recently worked in collaboration with hit Netflix series Stranger Things, coming up with an "Upside Down" Lego set last June. (sal/kes)
