This set comes with a lot of Minifigures, each Minifigure representing a character from the tv show. This set comes with a total of seven Minifigures, six of them representing the main casts of the movie, which include Ross, Joey, Chandler, Monica, Rachel, and Phoebe, with Janice as the extra character.
Taking a closer look at the female Minifigures, we have Phoebe dressed in her pink cardigan, from season 6, while Monica is dressed In a yellow apron from season 7, and Rachel, dressed in a white top and plaid skirt from season 1.
Monica and Rachel are my favorites, this is because they are both dressed in memorable outfits from the show.
For the boys, we have Ross, dressed in his tight leather pants for season 5, with Chandler dressed in a brown sports coat and khaki pants, and with Joey dressed in all of Chandler's clothes, as was the case in the season 3 episode 2 titled, “ One Where No Ones Ready”.
The set also features Gunther as a complementary character and Janice, Hosenstein as the additional Minifigure. She is known as the ex-girlfriend of Chandler and featured in strategic parts all through the tv show.
This set gives you a lot of Minifigures, which gives you a lot of recreating scene opportunity, and I believe with a good imagination you can have a lot of fun with this set.
2. BUILDING STRUCTURE.
This set is quite huge, with over 2000 pieces, it has a tedious build. Though the set is quite large it is not that hard to build, with more of a furniture build and requires little technic.

Though this set needs to be looked at critically to see the details, it can be enhanced to look more beautiful and attractive.
This set could be made even more beautiful with Lego lights. Imagine installing lights into each apartment, bringing each room to life and increasing its beauty.
And if you are a fan of technical work, then the installation Of these Lego lights will add a bit more spice to your work, and will increase the satisfaction you will receive once completed. And though installing of this light may seem a bit more challenging, you can install it successfully following these easy steps.
• BUILD THE STRUCTURE BEFORE INSTALLING THE LIGHT.
This is very important because you can not successfully install the lights without completing the set. Once the set is completed, then you can successfully know where each light set goes.
Make sure to insert the wire through the bricks for a cleaner finish, and to avoid any cut or tangled wires. This will also make the light installation last longer and look more sophisticated.
• MAKE SURE EACH LIGHT KIT FUNCTIONS PROPERLY.
This is to ensure that your installation is superb, and that the end result of your labor is successful. Then make sure you run all necessary checks before going ahead to installation. If after running all checks on the light, switch, and the wire, and all turn out well, then you can then move to the next phase.
• ENSURE PROPER CONNECTION AND VOLTAGE.
There are lots of light kits for Lego sets, with different connection methods. Each light kits have their special and universal instructions on how to properly light them.
This light kit also comes with a compatable AAA battery with a USB switch. The switch is what will be used to test the lights once installed to ensure that everything works perfectly. To ensure that there are no short circuits, ensure to check the voltage and to adjust it if needed, to no more than 5volts. No matter the light kit, these tips still apply.
• UNIVERSAL TIPS FOR INSTALLING LEGO LIGHTS.
These tips still apply if you want to install a Lego light, no matter how complicated the set may seem. These tips include...
• The wire must be properly concealed between the two knobs on the plate. Make sure that they are not pressed on directly by the bricks.
• If the Lego set you are installing is a bit simple, ensure that all wires run underneath and through the Lego bricks, tiles and plates, and that they overlap properly.
• Make sure you do not forcefully join Lego pieces around the cable. But ensure that it is comfortably installed between every stud. And if there are any wires sticking out, ensure you hide them properly.
Lego light kits are amazing and can turn any kind of Lego set into something special and worth looking at. And the Lego friends apartment is no exception. So if you really want to uncover the hidden beauty of this set, making it look even more beautiful and exciting, then I suggest that you upgrade your Lego friend's apartment with the Game of Bricks light kit.
