The LEGO The Office Dunder Mifflin set should be awarded a “Dundie for Best Build Ever” is the text that accompanied LEGO’s Instagram post announcing its latest LEGO Ideas set – an incredibly accurate LEGO recreation of the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company set from The Office.
In the past few years, LEGO has released several sitcom-based sets. These have included the Friends Apartment sets and Central Perk set, the Seinfeld set, and the Big Bang Theory set. The new LEGO The Office Dunder Mifflin set, scheduled to drop on October 1, 2022, includes a record-breaking 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 a LEGO figure of Angela’s cat Garbage. There are also LEGO versions of the iconic stapler in Jello, a Dundie trophy, ‘World’s Best Boss’ mug, and assorted other fan favorites.
In season 6, episode 15, the (generally clueless) protagonist Michael Scott is fed up with the company’s new owners and goes to speak to former CFO David Wallace. Wallace has moved on, however, and has invented a new device he calls the “Suck It” that automatically picks up children’s toys. Inspired by this episode, inventor and YouTube celebrity Matty Benedetto recently created an actual working version – a shop vac that picks up LEGOs and sorts them by size for easy storage. You can bet he’ll be “sucking up” the latest LEGO set when it is released in October.
