Just a quick reminder that the recently announced #10292 LEGO F.R.I.E.N.D.S Apartments set is now available for LEGO VIP members (general release will be on June 1st). This set will likely move fast, so if you want to get it early, this is your chance.
We talked about the set in detail (see: LEGO F.R.I.E.N.D.S Apartments Coming!), but to recap, this is the second set related to the popular TV show after the #21319 LEGO Ideas F.R.I.E.N.D.S Central Perk set, which was released in 2019 and is still available at the LEGO Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop.
The #10292 LEGO F.R.I.E.N.D.S Apartments comes with 2,048-pieces, and features both Monica and Rachel’s, and Chandler and Joey’s New York apartments, plus the adjoining hallway. It includes tons of iconic scenes from the TV show like when Monica put the Thanksgiving turkey on her head, when Joey and Chandler only had a canoe as furniture, and when Phoebe’s dollhouse went up in flames. Other instantly recognizable features are the Poking Device, Gladys, Phoebe’s creepy art piece, the cheesecake that falls on the floor, Pat the Dog, the chick and duck, and many more. You can display both apartments either separately or linked together with the hallway. Studio lights are also included to give a sense of the original studio setting.
There are also updated minifigs of the whole gang in some of their most memorable outfits; Rachel’s iconic plaid skirt, Ross’ too tight leather pants, Monica in an apron, Phoebe in a classic floral look, Chandler in a suit and loud designer tie, and Joey wearing all of Chandler’s clothes. And for the first time ever, Janice is also included, in a classic over-the-top gaudy outfit.
We can expect this set to be just as popular as the #21319 LEGO Ideas F.R.I.E.N.D.S Central Perk set, due to the detailed interiors, interesting accessories, and exclusive minifigs. Those who customized the original set into a Modular Building will likely do the same with the apartments. You can purchase the #21319 LEGO Ideas F.R.I.E.N.D.S Central Perk set at the LEGO Ideas section of the Online LEGO Shop, and the #10292 LEGO F.R.I.E.N.D.S Apartments at the Adults Welcome section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Thanks, bought it already! 😀
I think the first one was a little better, but I might still get this one for the pieces.
Central perk has a tighter and more packed design with warmer colors. It seems that the apartments are roomier with more interior space left empty. But they are both great sets in my opinion.
Seems to be quite stuffed already, I think.
There are few comparable interior sets, but it doesn’t really feel emptier than 21302 The Big Bang Theory.
There are so many great sets this summer that it’s hard to pick. I may have to skip this one in favor of some other sets. I may pick it up if it goes on sale. (Do sets like this ever go on sale?)
This is going to be another great set for customization. Like Central Perk, you can just drop sections of it into a custom modular. The minifigs are exceptional, again, but I prefer that they don’t show much flesh so I can swap them out to yellow minifigs.
