After previously releasing a LEGO set of the famous Friends coffee shop Central Perk, the building brick company is making an even bigger playset inspired by the hit NBC sitcom that practically defined the 1990s.
LEGO has announced the forthcoming arrival of a Friends apartment LEGO set, featuring both Rachel and Monica’s apartment and Joey and Chandler’s apartment, as well as the little hallway in-between them and the balcony where they spied on the naked guy. It’s packed with tons of references to some of your most favorite episodes, and it comes with an entirely new set of minifigures of the show’s cast, and even a bonus character (but you’re not going to be happy to see her).

It’s hard to believe, but true – gaming is still in its infancy. Or at least it’s teenage years. Sometime over the last decade, a brand-new genre dubbed “Roguelike” has emerged, and new release (and PlayStation 5 exclusive) Returnal falls under this label. And it could be loved or loathed, depending on personal taste and preferences. It’s also a genre foreign to many mainstream gamers. Sure, independent titles such as Hades and The Binding of Isaac have racked up consumer and industry awards, but it’s still fresh enough to where passionate gamers such as me have never gotten around to playing one. Housemarque (known for more minor, arcadey PlayStation exclusives like Super Stardust HD and Resogun) feel it’s time to popularize the style, but can something so hardcore find broad appeal?
The answer is yes and no, but with specifics remaining unearthed following whatever data comes from this AAA experiment.

Last year, Playmobil released a Back to the Future playset featuring the Doc Brown, Marty McFly and the DeLorean time machine. Considering the kid friendly style of these toys, it was an impressive little vehicle with a surprising number of accessories inspired by the time travel franchise. Now the German toy maker is time traveling again.
Playmobil is releasing two new Back to the Future playsets. There’s one inspired by the “future” of Back to the Future Part II with a playset inspired by the hoverboard chase in Hill Valley town square, and then we have a new vehicle playset inspired by the end of the original Back to the Future (which is also the beginning of the sequel), when a little change in history back in 1955 made Marty McFly’s present day life in 1985 a little bit sweeter. Check out the new Playmobil Back to the Future playsets below. Read More »
