A new, massive Lego set might be as close as fans of The Office can get to actually working for Dunder Mifflin. The giant set lays out the familiar workspace of the infamous paper company, but the details are what make this set Dundie-worthy.


Remember when Kevin spilled his famous chili? The Lego set re-creates that sad moment.


The set includes 15 minifigures of characters from the show: Michael, Dwight, Jim, Pam, Ryan, Angela, Oscar, Kevin, Stanley, Kelly, Phyllis, Meredith, Creed, Toby and Darryl. Plus there's even Angela's cat Garbage. Twelve of the figures have two expressions, so you can turn the head around to give a different look.

If you're a true Office fan, you'll recognize so many little details, including the pot of chili Kevin spills on the floor -- and then tries to scoop back into the pot. Dwight's stapler that Jim put in Jell-O? Check. Michael's Threat Level Midnight screenplay? Check. A Pretzel Day pretzel? You got it. The letter Jim faxes from "Future Dwight" to prank him into thinking he's getting messages from the future? It's there.


Jim and Pam had many sweet moments at the reception desk.


Some Twitter fans were upset that Andy "Nard Dog" Bernard isn't among the minifigures, but the Lego Twitter account joked that he was "away working on his ... management skills." (Fans know that means "anger management.")

But Andy fans will see the hole in the wall that a frustrated Andy punched there (he punched the same wall twice, actually). So he's... kinda present?


Michael Scott and his World's Best Boss mug.


The set has 1,164 pieces and measures more than 3 inches (7 centimeters) high, 12 inches (30 centimeters) wide and 10 inches (25 centimeters) deep. It includes the reception area, the conference room and Michael's office, which slides out for display on its own. It's the brainchild of fan creator Jaijai Lewis, who earned over 10,000 votes for his creation through the Lego Ideas program.

Buyers can preorder the set now for $120 ( £101, AU$176). It's scheduled to ship beginning Oct. 1.
