Who wants to play with a tiny LEGO Gunther or plastic Smelly Cat? That’s right comedy fans, Friends LEGO is officially coming to a toy box near you soon. The Central Perk Six really is there for us (when the rain starts to fall).
Despite David Crane and Marta Kauffman’s hit comedy coming to an end with “The Last One” in 2004, it seems we just can’t get enough of those kooky kids and their coffee-swilling antics.
Whether you’re favourite is Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Joey, or Chandler, you can now play with the whole gang in plastic-fantastic form. So far, we only have a short Facebook video, but believe me, that’s enough to get us talking.
The caption simply read, “The one with LEGO bricks 😉 Coming soon 🙌🏼”, while the comments section soon exploded. One fan wrote, “Another payday disappears” and someone else gushed, “Finally the one that everyone desires 🥺.”
Sadly, it looks like picking up the story with our own LEGO fan fiction is as close as we’re going to get to a proper reunion. Just a few days ago, David Schwimmer shot down revival rumours (again). Speaking on The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan, Ross Geller said, “Well, no. I mean… no,” when asked about a return to that iconic orange sofa.
He added: “I think we all feel it kind of ended in the perfect way.”
Last year, Matt LeBlanc echoed the sentiment and lamented: “I understand that people really want to see that reunion but that show was about a finite period in those characters’ lives, between 20 and 30.
“To see what those characters are doing now, I think it’s almost a case of that the book is better than the movie. Everyone’s imagination of what they’re doing now is better.”
Added to this, co-creator Marta Kauffman really twisted the knife.
“There are several reasons, [it won’t return]” Kauffman told Rolling Stone.
“One, the show is about a time in your life when your friends are your family. It’s not that time anymore. All we’d be doing is putting those six actors back together, but the heart of the show would be gone.
“Two, I don’t know what good it does us. The show is doing just fine, people love it. [A reunion] could only disappoint – ‘The One Where Everyone’s Disappointed’.”
As for Friends LEGO, it could be one of the greatest sets of all time. Forget Harry Potter or Stranger Things, could I BE any more excited?
