Over the years, we’ve seen the sets of classic sitcoms brought to life in Lego form, such as Jerry’s apartment from Seinfeld and the Central Perk coffee shop from Friends, and now it’s Dunder Mifflin’s turn. A new 1,164-piece Lego set inspired by The Office is now available for pre-order that is filled to the brim with all the characters you know and love, not to mention a ton of references. Check out a couple of photos below!
As you can see, the Lego set allows you to build many familiar areas of the Dunder Mifflin office, including Michael Scott’s office (which slides out for display on its own), the conference room, and more. The set also includes 15 Lego mini-figures: Michael Scott, Dwight Schrute, Jim Halpert, Pam Beesly, Ryan Howard, Angela Martin, Oscar Martinez, Kevin Malone, Stanley Hudson, Kelly Kapoor, Phyllis Lapin Vance, Meredith Palmer, Creed Bratton, Toby Flenderson, and Darryl Philbin, plus Angela’s cat Garbage There’s also a bunch of accessories that reference classic episodes, including a stapler in gelatin, Golden Ticket, Dunie trophy, the World’s Best Boss mug, and much more.
The Office Lego set originated from Jaija Lewis, who first submitted his idea for the set to the Lego Ideas community in 2014. Several versions were built that included more of the set, but they ultimately approved the one seen above as it was a more reasonable size. “For me, it’s a show I go to for comfort. It’s hilarious, relatable and heartwarming. I’ve heard from thousands of supporters over the years that during moments of hardship, they will watch it to lift their spirits,” Lewis said in a statement to THR. “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.” The set goes for $120 and will be released on October 1st.
