LEGO has officially revealed the latest addition to the LEGO F·R·I·E·N·D·S lineup two Years after LEGO Ideas Central Perk (21319) made its debut.
Introducing LEGO F·R·I·E·N·D·S Apartments (10292)!
The set will include both Monica & Rachel’s and Chandler and Joey’s apartment. If you have ever watched an episode of Friends then you know there are three main locations, Central Perk and the two apartments which are opposite each other, having this set now confirmed means we can finally have all three set pieces and recreate our favourite scenes.
The Minifigures included with this new set sees the whole cast reunited and with all new exclusive prints. Janice also makes an appearance just like Gunther did in the previous set, as little as we saw Janice she most definitely made an impact on us and is considered a fan favourite.
LEGO set designer, Anderson Ward Grubb, added “Following the success of the LEGO Ideas Central Perk set, we wanted to develop another tribute to this iconic TV show with a focus on the famous apartments. We worked directly from production photos of the set as well as watching and re-watching a lot of episodes so we could capture as many iconic moments as possible. One fun challenge was figuring out how to represent some aspects that change over the course of the show that appear in some episodes and not in others. I am looking forward to seeing if the eagle-eyed fans will spot them.”
It will consist of 2,048 pieces, retail for £134.99 – €149.99 – $149.99 (USD), and available 19th May for VIPs followed by 1st June for the general public.

THE ONE WITH THE LEGO® FRIENDS APARTMENTS SET
11th May 2021: Today, the LEGO® Group announces the new LEGO F.R.I.E.N.D.S Apartments Set – which allows fans of the iconic Warner Bros. TV series the chance to recreate their favourite scenes. The 2,048-piece set, features both Monica and Rachel’s, and Chandler and Joey’s New York apartments, plus the adjoining hallway.
Following the hugely popular LEGO Ideas Central Perk set, which was released in 2019, the LEGO Friends Apartments set is complete with iconic features and props, such as the classic moment when Monica put the Thanksgiving turkey on her head, the one where Joey and Chandler only had a canoe as furniture and when Phoebe’s dollhouse went up in flames.
Other accessories from the show include the Poking Device; Gladys, Phoebe’s creepy art piece; the cheesecake that falls on the floor; Pat the Dog; the chick and duck, and many more. The set also gives fans the real sense of the original filming studio with set lights and allows you to display both apartments either separately or linked together with the hallway.
Additional features of the set include; new minifigures of the whole gang, in some of their most memorable outfits; Rachel’s iconic plaid skirt; Ross’ too tight leather pants; Monica in an apron; Phoebe in a classic floral look; Chandler in a suit and loud designer tie; and Joey wearing all of Chandler’s clothes. And for the first time ever, Janice will also feature as a minifigure in a classic over-the-top gaudy outfit.
