In recent times, we have seen LEGO go all-out to get people closer to their favorite TV shows, by creating a replica building to imitate the show and its characters. One such creation is the LEGO Central Perk building piece. Needless to say that this particular set has gained the appeal of many New York coffee drinkers especially those who enjoy the Friends television sitcom. While we are not surprised that a world-renowned sitcom series like “Friends” will be honored with its own building set, we are fascinated by the wealth of detail that LEGO invested into creating this beautiful edifice.
If you are wondering why this building piece is not named after the Friends TV show itself, it’s because there is an LEGO Central Perk 21319. LEGO does not want us to get the two mixed up, and they have created a name that suits it perfectly, Central Perk. Though it portrays the 5D view of the friends’ sitcom show, it is not all that intimidating to build. Even if you’ve not seen a single episode of Friends TV show (highly unlikely), LEGO provides an easy to read manual, to help you get started.
The Central Perk set is a very good depiction of the real-life replica of the show. That is if you take away the small details that cannot be recreated as LEGO Friends Central Perk. The bottom line is that you can’t mistake the characters of the show as depicted by LEGO, the components of the Sitcom are quite recognizable. They went extra miles in creating a look-alike that looks and feels like the real deal. If You are a fan of the show, you’ll appreciate the work they have put into this amazing work of art. In a bit, we are going to be showing you the real-life set and the depiction of it. Here’s the real set vs LEGO Set picture. Enjoy!
If You look at the pictures provided above carefully, you’ll notice that LEGO didn’t spare any detail in making Central perk a complete lookalike of the original set. Kudos to LEGO! Now, all you have to do is to recreate the space using the building blocks provided by our favorite toy brick makers.
While the assembled pieces looks like something cut-out from a movie (as it is), it is not all that intimidating to build. You can give it to your four-year-old to build without help, and he/she will achieve it within a couple of days. For an experienced LEGO builder, the Central Perk set should not take you more than three hours to build. Simply put, this is not a time-consuming set.
It allows you to swap positions for each character on the show including the barista-turned manager of the coffee house, Gunther. You’ll love every minute you spend recreating this beautiful area.
