Can you believe?! The Fab Five are being immortalised in Lego form as a new set from the toy company is being released celebrating the gang and their apartment

The set, which will be released on 1 October, features a Lego figure of each of the Queer Eye (QE) gang - Antoni Porowski, Jonathan Van Ness (JVN), Karamo Brown, Tan France, and Bobby Berk - as well as a faithful recreation of their fabulous loft

The show’s creator, Scout Productions, has worked with Lego on the new release.

“My mind is freakin’ blown”

Posting a Lego version of the show's intro on Instagram, Antoni said: “My very favorite toys growing up were my countless LEGO sets and so my mind is freakin’ blown that the LEGO Queer Eye – The Fab Five Loft set is coming soon.” The QE culinary expert also confirmed that there would indeed be a Lego avocado. Because it’s Antoni! How could there not be!?

The rest of the gang also celebrated the announcement, with JVN asking his iconic question "Can you believe?!".

The 974-piece set is packed with authentic details of the Fab Five’s loft from the first two series of the reality TV show, including the iconic ‘STYLE, TASTE CLASS” sign and each member of the group has their own accessories.

Antoni has his own kitchen, Tan has a clothing rack, JVN his swivel chair, Karamo has the couch and scrapbook to help people emotionally, and Bobby gets a laptop and ideas board to help conceptualise home makeovers.

Also featured in the set are figures of JVN’s high school teacher, Kathi Dooley, with a before and after figure to recreate the emotional reveal. A little figure of QE resident pooch Bruley the dog (who passed away in 2019) is also included.

Lego’s Vice President of Design at the LEGO Group and lead designer of the new set, Matthew Ashton, said it had been an “honour” to work with the Fab Five on the product sharing that Tan’s figure was the biggest challenge.

“We didn’t have an element that did his gorgeous hair justice, so we had to make an entirely new wig element - in shimmering silver of course!” Ashton added that there are more easter eggs for fans to discover, including a ‘Yaaas Queen’ print for the kitchen.

Completely constructed, the set measures over 9cm high, 35cm wide, and 21cm deep and will cost £89.99.
