    I’d assumed I wouldn’t get this, but it looks outstanding and that price is a pleasant surprise. (How much was BBT – I thought to was more than this?) I can imagine getting a second as it includes a lot of interesting stuff that could help flesh out other sets, like the empty apartment in the Pet Store modular, or perhaps even upgrade the Assembly Square cafe. Most of the figs will work as good general purpose “people” figs for a modular street or town setup.

    I think the inclusion of the set lighting is a really nice, subtle touch, and there are some good jokes for fans (eg the Joey lipstick ad poster on the exterior). The Ross figure, in particular, is an outstanding likeness. Monica’s overall outfit is a bit weird but the whole set seems designed to match an early season (eg Rachel is a waitress) and she did have some awful costumes early on.

    Very pleasantly surprised by this.

    Another set with a reasonable $A conversion, especially as the exchange rate is in apparent freefall. Thumbs up to TLG.
