Now, ahead of the 25th anniversary of the show, LEGO are tapping into the nostalgia by releasing a special edition set featuring Rachel, Joey, Ross and even Gunther.

The set is a miniature brick construction of the Central Perk coffee shop where the gang would hang out in the show. If you’re a real Friends addict, you’ll also have noticed that all of the character figurines are modelled on the stars’ looks from the first season.
