The minifigs come with some of the character’s signature items from the show, including Joey’s man bag, Chandler’s laptop and Phoebe’s guitar.

Builders will get to assemble the cast’s favorite couch and surrounding chairs, as well as the coffee counter and entryway. And of course the performance space if you want Lego Phoebe to belt out a few rounds of "Smelly Cat."
