Actor Matthew Perry seems to be having a blast with the new LEGO Ideas Central Perk (21319) that he couldn’t help but crack up a joke that is well too familiar for fans of the hit 90’s TV sitcom. After declaring that the upcoming LEGO Ideas set features Chandler as the most handsome minifigure around, he pushes the humor up to a notch when Matthew Perry decided to don his minifig alter-ego with a Batman costume. The result is nostalgically hilarious.
I built the Friends lego set. I made myself Batman. But that’s neither here nor there. I’m Batman.

Fans of the FRIENDS TV show will immediately recognize the humor in Matthew Perry’s tweet. It is a callback to one of the show’s episodes when Chandler and Ross were arguing regarding whose tuxedo is way cooler: Chandler’s tux that was actually worn by Pierce Brosnan, or Ross’ Val Kilmer Batman tuxedo which the latter worn in 1995’s Batman Forever. Needless to say, Chandler needs to make sure that his wedding with Monica will feature him in the most eye-catching tux ever, and he has his sights on that ‘Batman tuxedo’.
The LEGO Ideas Central Perk (21319) set is slated to be released on September 1st, retailing for $59.99 USD. It comes in 1,070 pieces and features the iconic cafe where the FRIENDS stars hang out in the hit 90s TV series. It features the minifig versions of Ross, Rachel, Chandler, Monica, Joey, Phoebe and Central Perk’s long-suffering manager Gunther.
