A Sellbot Field Office is a special variation of a Cog Building owned by the Sellbots that brings the luxuries of a Cog headquarters onto the streets of Toontown. Unlike ordinary Cog Buildings, a Sellbot Field Office takes over the local Toon Headquarters of a street. To take a Sellbot Field Office down, multiple groups of Toons are each transported to an annex, a single wing of the entire building that acts as a health point. Each annex must be taken down for the Sellbot Field Office to be conquered.

Gameplay

Battle mechanics

A Sellbot Field Office is so devoid of silliness that certain gags become ineffective and can only be restored if Toons make their way through the minigames with ease. Once Toons enter the building, they start off with either Throw or Squirt and one additional gag track. Due to the lack of gag tracks, Toons are expected to devise new gag strategies, but SOS cards can still be used to assist in battle.

Mover & Shaker Maze Game

Toons need to grab water balloons from water coolers scattered across the maze room to defeat four large Mover & Shakers. In order to restore other gag tracks, however, Toons must collect jokes by defeating Cold Callers and Name Droppers with water balloons. Toons should stay clear of being hit by any of the Cogs and falling filing cabinets to prevent from losing a water balloon as they wander through the room.

Cold Caller Ice Game

Toons need to skate through the icy offices of the Cold Callers to turn up the thermostats. Cold Callers will fight back by attempting to turn the thermostats back down. To once again restore other gag tracks, Toons must collect jokes from filing cabinets. Before continuing onto the next floor, Toons must ensure that the room is defrosted by keeping the temperature up with the thermostats.

It is important to note that filing cabinets not only drop jokes but also have a rare chance of dropping a wrench. A wrench allows the Toon to interact with an AC unit and disable it, preventing Cold Callers from enabling it. Any Toon with a wrench above their head signifies their possession of one.

Boiler room

The boiler room of high pressure sales is where Toons face four Cogs and the boss of the Sellbot Field Office. More Cogs will continue to spawn periodically until the boss is defeated. The boss possesses unique attributes such as the ability to unlure, heal, and promote the Cogs at any given moment. Because of how tedious the battle may be, it is essential that Toons excel in the minigames so that they can earn back all their gag tracks.

To better "serve" citizens of Toontown, the Sellbots made their most sinister sales tactic yet: The Sellbot Field Office. This mobile Cog HQ strikes weariness in even the wackiest Toon, as it slowly saps silliness from the street with a no-nonsense glare. Toons who giggle their way through the Cog Offices inside will have their Laff put to the test in the Boiler Room, full of high pressure sales and a boss who makes the Toon Resistance quiver in fear.

Trivia

  • Field Offices from Toontown Online were originally referred to in development as "Cog-dominiums".
  • Based on several concept artworks and mentions of the game's code, Toontown Online had plans for a Cashbot, Lawbot, and Bossbot Field Office, but only the Sellbot variation was released.
    • In the code for Toontown Online, as well as in the phase files, the Lawbot Field Office was almost completely finished. However, it was never released in the game.
    • For the Cashbot Field Office, the code mentioned that Toons would have to use cranes to defeat Money Bags carrying coins to prevent them from stealing laff barrels. Furthermore, artwork for what the room could had looked like was shown.[1]
    • For the Bossbot Field Office, the code mentioned that Toons would crash a meeting and obtain destruction memos to save laff barrels. Furthermore, a rare screenshot shows a Toon golfing in what could had been an early version of the Bossbot Field Office.[2]
  • According to the Chairman's memo, Mover & Shakers would be rewarded their own "quality office" because of their significant performance in Doomsday. As plans to completely recreate Sellbot Field Offices were not in fruition at the time of when the memo was unveiled in 2014, it is possible that the storyline may have also changed since then.
  • New information revolving around Sellbot Field Offices was revealed during the main panel of ReplayFX 2018, explaining how they work.[3] Attendees could access a developer server to test out gameplay.
    • More information was revealed during the main panel of ReplayFX 2019, introducing other portions of the Sellbot Field Office expansion such as the Resistance Hideout and the Cog Remote Control, both of which had been in the conceptual stages at the time.[4] Completed props and GUI elements for the Cold Caller Ice Game were also revealed, followed by a prototype runthrough of the game during the Q&A panel the next day.[5]
      • Subsequent backstage blog posts were posted on the Toontown Rewritten website from August 19th to August 23rd in 2019, covering every aspect of Sellbot Field Offices with the exception of the boss battle.[6]
  • The Toontown Rewritten Team held the first of their series of development livestreams called "ToonCasts" on January 31, 2020 to showcase further progress on Sellbot Field Offices.[7]
  • Part of the exterior design for the Sellbot Field Office was inspired by the Field Office from the discontinued Toontown 2.0 prototype.[8]
  • The Cold Caller Ice Game was inspired by a piece of Toontown Online concept art that depicts an icy office for Cold Callers.[9]

Cogdominiums start at a whopping 500,000 Cogbucks per week. So yes, the housing market is rough for the Cogs. There's a reason they work nearly 24/7!
