We now have some new details regarding the retail availability of the upcoming F.R.I.E.N.D.S. gift with purchase (GWP). It has been confirmed by several sources that the GWP will be available starting June 1st, exclusively on Shop@Home with the purchase of 2019's Central Perk (21319). It's unclear why The LEGO Group has opted to have the qualifying purchase as Central Perk (21319) as opposed to the latest addition to the famed sitcom, The Friends Apartments (10292)—but it may be in an effort to draw more buyers from the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. sitcom fanbase.
It's also interesting to note that the LEGO Ideas Central Perk (21319) has been on sale at most major retailers for months now, with the lowest average price coming in around $49.99, which is nearly -20% off retail price (originally $59.99 USD).
Essentially, if you opt to purchase 21319 on June 1st from Shop@Home at full retail price, when the GWP becomes available, you'll have to find justification for the fact that you're essentially buying the mug for roughly $10.00 or so—which is a pretty steep markup for something you'll inevitably be drinking your morning coffee/tea from.
