The set consists of 1,164 Lego pieces, including 15 character figures, a gelatin-coated stapler and a tiny World’s Best Boss mug

It’s been ten years since the popular sitcom The Office came to an end. However, because the series is still so popular with audiences, Lego has now repurchased the characters of Jim, Pam, Michael, Dwight and the Dunder Mifflin gang in a brand new The Office building set.

Lego has already made sets for popular NBC series such as “Seinfeld” and “Friends”. The latest set was designed by Jaijai Lewis, who pitched the idea via the Lego Ideas website. It received around 10,000 votes from fans and was eventually sent to production.

The new Office building set from Lego consists of 1,164 parts and is currently available for pre-order at Walmart. It costs $120 and will be available in stores from October 1, 2022.

The new kit features a Lego replica of Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton, Pennsylvania officers, which includes Michael’s private office next to the break room. Customers will receive 15 characters including Lego models created by 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, Darryl Philbin and Angela’s cat Garbage.

A few memories from Season 9 are also included, such as Kevin’s pot of chili, a gelatin stapler, Jim’s teapot, Pam’s engagement ring, a Dundie trophy and a World’s Best Boss mug.

Speaking about the kit, Lewis said he worked on the project for seven years, using behind-the-scenes photos, creating blueprints and continually asking the show for help with the designs. He added that he enjoyed recreating the show’s best moments from the start, and the biggest change was rescaling to make the set smaller while keeping all the characters. Lewis mentioned that he watches the show for comfort and that it’s hilarious, relatable and heartwarming.

The final version was created by designer duo Laura and Chris Perron. Laura explained that the project allowed her to combine three things she loves – her husband, The Office and Lego bricks. She added that she and her husband are huge fans of the show and have worked on many references and worked on many jokes for the model. She said they were happy with the end result.

Chris said: “Jaijai did a great job refining the scope and scale of the model and we created the final layout and structure to capture as many iconic angles as possible. It was special to design this set together with my wife Laura; We felt we could play up the Jim and Pam dynamic. We didn’t want to hold back on references, so there are additional stickers and accessories to recreate your favorite moments.”

The Office aired on NBC from 2005 to 2013, and creator Greg Daniels recently stated that a revival could happen, although this hasn’t been confirmed.
