The Golden Girls Set (Living Room and Kitchen)

Thank you for being a friend and checking out my Golden Girls set! I've been a big fan of the Friends, Seinfeld and The Office sets, and I think this would be a great classic sitcom addition.

I've been a fan of The Golden Girls since I was a teenager, and like me I think a lot of people who are still a ways from their golden years love it too. From Dorothy's sarcasm to Blanche's flirtations, Rose's naivety and Sophia's stories of the old country, it was so fun to try to capture all that in minifigure form.

As for the set, it's filled with fun colors and interesting angles. It actually all started with trying to make the wicker furniture out of LEGO (don't ask me why, it just seemed like a fun challenge). From there, it was an interesting challenge creating the angular back of the living room that leads out to the lanai, and the recessed and diagonal walls in the kitchen.

I submitted a version a few years back, but this time around there are a lot of improvements:
  • Set is larger with more room for play and minifigures, without being oversized.
  • Improved minifigures (check out their alternate expressions, they worked out perfectly)
  • Better accuracy with the colors, shapes and proportions.
  • More show references and more cool pieces! (Rose's teddy bear, her piano-playing chicken Count Bessie, Sophia's cookware, and of course the kitchen wouldn't be complete without coffee and a cheesecake.)
  • Living room and kitchen can be detached and displayed separately.

As Sophia said, "Look, you didn't ask me for my opinion, but I'm old so I'm giving it anyway," so I hope you like this set and vote for it to become a reality.
