The One with the Funko Pop Vinyls... FRIENDS Gets a Figure Set

Written by

FRIENDS is going through a Renaissance, it would seem. 11 years after "The Last One" aired on NBC, and 21 years after "The Pilot," the folks at Funko have announced a series of Pop! Vinyls that will bring the six main characters of the show into loveable 3¾" vinyl figure form. While you may have to build your own "Central Perk" or "Apartment" playset, you can almost be certain that someone will reimagine THE REMBRANDTS' "I'll Be There for You" music video or the show's opening titles with Pop! Vinyls standing in. My friends at Entertainment Earth have the full set up for pre-order right now, with expected delivery taking place in February of 2016 - more than enough time to watch the series again on Netflix.

Rachel Green (Jennifer Aniston) is ready to serve you at Central Perk...

Joey Tribbiani (Matt Leblanc) is on his way to yet another fruitless audition. He's got the duck from “The One with a Chick and a Duck.”

Chandler Bing (Everyone stared in awe when we screamed Matthew Perry!) is sporting a fly vest, and holding the chick from “The One with a Chick and a Duck.”

It could be your day, your week, your month or your year if you add a set of these to your collection...

PS: If you're keeping your Pop! Vinyls boxed (we take ours out), might I suggest the Funko Premium Pop! Vinyl Premium Protector?
