LEGO Unveils Its Set For The Office That Will Be Released In October
| Last updated
LEGO has just released a teaser of their upcoming set based on the TV show The Office, highlighting some of the show’s most memorable moments.
Inspired by the comedy series which ran from 2005-2013, this piece consists of 1,164 bricks to create the infamous Dunder Mifflin Paper Company.
There will also be 15 mini-figures of some of the most beloved characters, including Michael Scott, Dwight Schrute and Jim Halpert.
The set will also include accessory elements inspired by the show’s greatest scenes, including Jim’s teapot, letter and engagement ring for Pam, Michael’s screenplay, Dwight’s hidden weapons, Kevin’s spilt pot of chilli, and a stapler in gelatine.
Surely, there’s a 'world’s greatest boss mug' in there too?
Many Office fans took to social media, drooling over the set shortly after Lego unveiled the teaser.
One person wrote: “15 mini-figures?!! That’s huge!”
Another commented: “This is the best Lego set EVER! Can't wait to buy this!”
A third person said: “EVERYBODY STAY CALM.”
While another wrote: “‘I am running away from my responsibilities. And it feels good.’ – Michael Scott.”
Which is exactly what we’ll be doing once this set hits shelves October 1.
Following the success of Friends and Seinfeld LEGO sets, the toy company continues to find inspiration from beloved TV sitcoms.
However, this The Office set is the brainchild of superfan and LEGO Ideas community member Jaijai Lewis, who first submitted preview models in 2014 and 2019, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
After both sets received 10,000 votes to move to production, Lewis created the piece alongside LEGO Ideas designers - husband and wife team, Laura and Chris Perron.
He told the outlet: “Overall, I worked on this project for nearly seven years.
"I used behind-the scenes photos, set blueprints and re-watched the show as references for my designs. It was a lot of fun to recreate classic moments from the show over the years.
“Even after I hit 10,000 votes, I continued adding new features to improve the model. One of my biggest changes was rescaling it to make the set smaller while keeping so many characters.
"I’m so grateful to the fans who came out to promote and vote for my latest designs, it really means a lot to me.”
