The LEGO Group and Queer Eye have revealed a new set in honour of the award winning show.
The Fab 5 Loft set is a model of the apartment which serves as the group’s base in the show.
The set – created in partnership with Queer Eye creator, Scout Productions following a deal brokered by the show’s licensing agency, IMG – will be available globally from 1 October.
It features 974 pieces and measures over 9cm high, 35cm wide and 21cm deep, and is packed with authentic details such as the ‘Style, Taste, Class’ sign and accessories to highlight each of the Fab Five’s talents (Bobby Berk, Tan France, Antoni Porowski, Karamo Brown and Jonathan Van Ness).
It also features seven minifigures and fan favourite Bruley the dog, and comes with a coffee table style instruction booklet which gives an insight into how the LEGO designers worked with the cast on developing the set.
“Queer Eye has had such a positive impact on so many people’s lives which is why we are excited for this collaboration,” commented Matthew Ashton, vp of design at the LEGO Group and lead designer of the new set. “It reminds us that we need to take time to celebrate kindness and help build each other up. In this set we’ve captured themes central to both the LEGO Group and the show – caring, creativity, learning and fun.
“While the Fab Five rebuild people’s lives, we are on a mission to inspire people to get creative and help rebuild a more positive world.”
