The ending of a TV series can be so sad. Once you’re no longer watching the characters on television, they can only live on in your hearts. “The Office” may have concluded in 2013, but that doesn’t means fans of this comedy are giving up on having the characters live on in another way! A concept for a Lego version of the Dunder Mifflin paper company office from the hit show has been submitted to Lego, and it’s currently under review by the company.
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?
The original concept for the design was created by Jaijai Lewis, a 36-year-old market researcher from New York City. It contains the main office space, 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!
Fans have responded well to the Lego version Lewis has dreamed up.
One person called it the “cutest thing ever” on Twitter.

Other comments came through the Lego Ideas website. One supporter of the project wrote, “Fingers crossed that this passes review! ‘My heart soars, with the eagles nest,'” quoting none other than Michael Scott.
Clearly, “The Office” fans are supporting this 100 percent—and who could blame them?! Keep up with the latest updates to see if this project will become a reality via the Lego Ideas website.
