Meticulous Attention to Detail
Even having 1164 pieces, building the LEGO The Office set isn’t very difficult, but the attention to detail and the way the characters from The Office have been captured are the kit’s main selling points. There are adorable nuances that allude to Jim Halpert’s and Dwight Schrute’s protracted feud, and Steve Carell’s Michael Scott even has his own World’s Best Boss mug. Michael’s desk even has a Dundie trophy on it. But Pam Beesly, played by Jenna Fischer, is responsible for the set’s best Easter egg in The Office.
Each of the tiny LEGO versions of the characters from The Office has its own set of accouterments, like Michael’s mug, Jim’s cellphone, Stanley’s pretzel, and Phyllis’ knitting. Buddy the Hotdog is depicted on a post-it note with the words Hiya Buddy written next to it as Pam’s small Easter gift. It’s a humorous reference from season four of The Office, in which Pam confesses to interrupting Michael’s business meetings with phony calls so he would appear busy. It’s a sweet moment that shows Pam and Michael are truly friends, despite how it sometimes seems otherwise, and it’s the ideal one to include in LEGO’s The Office set.
