Just in time for its 25th anniversary, classic TV sitcom Friends is being turned into a Lego set.

Lego Ideas Central Perk re-creates the iconic cafe where the New York-living pals hung out while also giving it a TV-set feel.

The Central Perk set will (of course) come with the iconic sofa as well as the chairs and table but also a pair of studio light rigs with translucent light-style elements. As a bonus, the seating area for the show’s characters is removable.

The main characters — Ross Geller, Rachel Green, Chandler Bing, Monica Geller, Joey Tribbiani, Phoebe Buffay — come as minifigure as does Central Perk’s long-suffering manager, Gunther. Each character also gets an accessory.

The set will be a muscular 1,070 pieces and retail for $59.99 when it hits stores September. It will measure 4 inches (11 cm) high, 11 inches (29 cm) wide and 8 inches (22 cm) deep.

The set hails from the Lego Ideas line, which is a community and forum that lets fans submit and vote on ideas for future sets. (Any idea that gets over 10,000 votes has a chance of being selected to be actually made and sold.) The building instructions booklet will come with details on the fan creator and designer.
