A concept for a Lego version of the Dunder Mifflin paper company, from our favorite show The Office has been submitted to Lego and reached their Goal of 10,000 people!!
So, what does that mean exactly? It means that this set could one day exist in stores—which is crazy amazing news for fans of Michael Scott and the gang!
Once an idea submitted on the Lego Ideas website is backed by 10,000 people, Lego will review the idea to see if its something the company wants to create in real life. According to the Lego ideas page for the Dunder Mifflin set, the review process began in May and could take several months to complete.
If the idea gets the green light, it will move into the development phase and then eventually, you’d be able to buy this Lego version of “The Office” in stores. Pretty cool, huh?
There are a lot different Lego sets out there based on The Office but the original concept for the design was created by Jaijai Lewis, @legotheoffice a 36-year-old market researcher from New York City. His set included the bullpen, Michael’s office, the Conference Room and Darryl’s office as well as Lego figurines of the characters Michael, Jim, Pam, Dwight, Erin, Andy, Phyllis, Stanley, Kelly, Toby, Darryl, Creed, Meredith, Angela and Kevin.
Fun details are included, too. For example, there are elements such as Dwight’s bobble head in Jell-O (thanks to Jim’s pranks) and Angela’s cats. Seems as though Lewis really thought of everything!
