To celebrate the 25th anniversary of "Friends," LEGO announced a Central Perk set that will include the six main characters of the iconic television sitcom set in New York City.

The set will be available Sept. 1, and will cost $59,99, the company announced on its website. There will be 1,070 pieces and will feature the Central Perk cafe seating area where the show's six main characters -- Ross Geller, Rachel Green, Chandler Bing, Monica Geller, Joey Tribbiani and Phoebe Buffay -- drank, traded barbs and occasionally sang (fans of Phoebe's "Smelly Cat" will understand).

Pieces in the set will include Ross' brick-built keyboard, Phoebe's guitar, Joey's pizza box, Chandler's laptop, Monica's muffin and Rachel's tray and coffee cup, People reported.

As expected, Gunther, the barista who had hair "brighter than the sun" but could never crack into the inner circle of the six main characters -- despite his love for Rachel -- will be included in the set, LEGO officials said. So will his broom.

The set will also feature a couch, armchair and two chairs.

"Friends" appeared on NBC from 1994 to 2004.
