The Central Perk Story“I can't explain my feelings when I reached the 10,000 votes, it was a mixture of joy and pride.”
Meet the maker…Aymeric Fievet lives in Normandy, France and has been working in the computer industry for a decade. An extreme cinephile, he is passionate about series, movies and cartoons as well as LEGO products of course.
“I’ve played with LEGO products from a very young age and collected many sets. My collection is still evolving and I am particularly interested in the Minifigures series. One of the sets that stays in my heart is the "6991 - Monorail Transport Base". I have very good childhood memories of this set, because it combined my two favorite activities: the circuit and space.
My favorite LEGO element is "1x2 Masonry (98283)" which I discovered in The Big Bang TheoryTM set. I find it essential in the realization of buildings, houses, castles and my Central Perk, of course. I oriented my project around one of my favorite series: FriendsTM. The challenge was to visualize passages of the series to allow me to recreate the furniture and the characters in as much detail as possible, The assembly of this model took me about a week after finding the necessary references. During the voting period, the set was changed several times.
I can't explain my feelings when I reached the 10,000 votes, it was a mixture of joy and pride.
For a successful LEGO Ideas project, you have to believe in yourself, be patient and don't hesitate to ask for help in case of difficulties, because there are many qualified and helpful people.
What I like about LEGO Ideas is that it gives you the opportunity to really use your imagination and if successful, see your name associated with your favorite brand! Moreover, it is playful and easy to use. It's always a pleasure to discover new creations every day.
My advice for those submitting ideas is … know that your dream is possible! And take care of how your photos look because they are your best advert.”
