Proving that toys aren’t just for children, Lego has announced it will be releasing a Friends-inspired collection to the excitement of fans.

On Tuesday, the building-block company revealed a sneak-peek of the upcoming sitcom Legos on Twitter with a short video.

In the clip, Lego figurines of Phoebe, Ross, Chandler, Monica, Rachel, and Joey can be seen sitting on the iconic orange couch in front of the fountain recognisable from the sitcom’s theme song.

The toy company captioned the video, which has already been viewed more than 66,000 times: “The one with Lego bricks. Coming soon.”

Despite no other information about the collection available yet, on Twitter, people are understandably thrilled with the announcement that the show is returning in Lego form.

“I am SO getting this!” one person commented.

Another said: “What a thing of beauty. That will be on my shelf as soon as physically possible!”

The upcoming Lego collection coincides with the 25th anniversary of the beloved sitcom, which premiered on 22 September 1994.

This is not the first time the toy company has entered into the world of TV sitcoms - Lego previously created a Big Bang Theory-inspired collection after it was suggested through the Lego crowdsourcing idea section.

The Independent has contacted Lego for comment.
