Lego Is Releasing A Set Based On US Version Of The Office

Lego is releasing a new set based on the US version of The Office - that's right, stay calm everyone.

The set was designed by fan Jaijai Lewis through Lego Ideas, which allows people to submit their own creations to the toy manufacturer.

Jaijai is a huge fan of the show - which ran for nine season between 2005 and 2013 - and his set includes all 17 of the primary characters, and each comes with a selection of appropriate accessories.

For example, main man Michael Scott (Steve Carell), has a World's Best Boss Mug, a Dundie (the meaningless award he bestowed to staff annually), a Santa hat and a bandana.

Explaining the motivation behind the design in August 2020, he said: "The Office is my favourite TV show, I've lost count of how many times I've re-watched it.

"I have all the bobbleheads, so many T-shirts, I've been a huge fan for years.

"I love it so much that back in 2014, I created the very first 'Lego The Office' set to hit 10k supporters here on Lego Ideas. I came up with so many jokes and Easter eggs I knew would delight other fans.

"Unfortunately it wasn't chosen but I never gave up. Last year I submitted a new and improved design, which hit 10k supporters in two months. That design wasn't approved but I spent months tweaking my design. They say third time's the charm right?"

Well, it certainly was for Jaijai, because Lego has officially confirmed that his design has been approved for production.

In a blog post, the company said: "A huge congratulations to Jaijai Lewis as his The Office recreation has been selected as the next Lego Ideas sets.

"This is a super interesting and entertaining television show that we feel is universally known and loved and Jaijai's creation captures all the details of that story so well.

"It's also very apparent to us how much desire there has been for a set like this after numerous submissions reaching review over the years. This time we had the opportunity and we jumped on it."

It's not clear when you'll be able to get your hands on it yet, but keep your eyes peeled folks for 'Lego The Office'.
