LEGO Queer Eye Assembles Fab 5 Loft from 1000 Bricks
After seeing the LEGO Group’s trip to New York for Jerry Seinfeld’s apartment, the LEGO Group returns today with the launch of another famous mansion. This time around, there’s less sitcom action and more lifestyle enhancements, with the Fab 5 Loft by strange eye get the LEGO treatment on almost 1,000 pieces. See you below for all the details.
Lego queer eye
In what has long been rumored, today finally sees the official debut of the LEGO Queer Eye set. This one comes in with much of the same overall design we’ve seen from all apartment style sets in the past, including Friends and Seinfeld, but with a more specific layout to adapt to the unique design of the Kanas City loft of the Fab 5.
Stacking up to 974 pieces, the set spans several different rooms filled with many iconic elements from the reboot of the popular Netflix TV show. There’s the iconic sofa and other furniture, along with various wall art and decals tailored to the series.
And because it’s a LEGO version of strange eye, you also get miniature versions of the cast. Fittingly, the set of Fab 5 made their LEGO debut in this kit, with all-new designs for Bobby Berk, Tan France, Antoni Porowski, Karamo Brown and Jonathan Van Ness, with a pair of Kathi Dooley minifigures complementing the set. ‘together. There’s also Bruley the Dog, which should be a standout inclusion for fans of the show.
Another notable aspect of the Fab 5 Loft is that the set marks the first time we’ve seen one of these apartment-style sets without being voted on by a LEGO Ideas campaign. Friends and Seinfeld both started out as fan-made projects that were funded by crowdfunding, while Queer Eye’s early days were just something LEGO themselves were interested in exploring.
Join the LEGO range in October
Officially joining the LEGO lineup in October, the Queer Eye Fab 5 Loft will launch on the first of next month. The set comes with a price tag of $ 99.99, which is quite appropriate for its number of pieces and the figures included.
9to5Toys’ to take:
As new as the release of the LEGO Queer Eye set is, I’m not really sure how good this build is. While there is a similar focus to the Everyone’s Awesome Pride Month set, this new TV-inspired set is unlikely to have the same appeal to the wider LEGO audience. Personally, I can’t help but ask: who is the audience for this? I guess we’ll see how the version evolves over time and how long it takes for any kind of discount to start happening.
An interesting detail of the set is that we now know where the white brick elements that were once supposed to be used for Peach Castle were used. The new tracks released at the start of the summer were one of the main confirmations as to the supposed release of Nintendo’s location, but now we know there were exclusive bricks for the LEGO Queer Eye set instead.
