A Sellbot Field Office is a Cog Building that is much like a mobile Cog headquarters. Unlike ordinary Cog Buildings, a Sellbot Field Office takes over the Toon Headquarters of a street. When that specific Toon Headquarters is captured, it is captured in all of Toontown's districts. 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 a Sellbot Field Office to be conquered.
Runthrough and gameplay
A Sellbot Field Office is so devoid of silliness that certain gags become ineffective against Cogs and need to be reclaimed by collecting jokes in the Cog minigames. Once Toons enter the Sellbot Field Office, they start off with either Throw or Squirt and one additional gag track. Due to lack of gag tracks, Toons are expected to devise new gag strategies, but boss rewards such as SOS cards and pink slips can still be used to assist in battle.
The order of floors change each time Toons enter a Sellbot Field Office, but the Boiler Room will always remain last. It is also possible for the same minigame to appear twice. While Toons are inside the Sellbot Field Office, a Resistance Ranger explains which gag tracks have impact against the Cogs and provides briefings regarding certain floors.
Toons battle against a wave of Cogs in the Stomper Room before advancing to one of the minigames.
Toons battle against a wave of Cogs in the Executive Suite before advancing to one of the minigames.
Cold Caller Office
Toons need to skate around and engage the thermostats in order to heat up the room, therefore unfreezing the exit. However, Cold Callers will attempt to disengage the thermostats. To reclaim gag tracks, Toons must obtain jokes from filing cabinets scattered around the room. Filing cabinets not only drop jokes but have a rare chance of dropping a wrench, which allows Toons to interact with a thermostat and disable it; any Toon with a wrench above their head signifies their possession of one. The room's temperature is also indicated by a thermometer displayed on the right side of the player's screen. Toons have a total of 240 seconds to make their way to the exit upon unfreezing it; if the objective is not completed in time, they will go sad.
Mover & Shaker Office
Toons need to grab water balloons from water coolers and use them to defeat the four Mega Movers. To reclaim more gag tracks, Toons must continue to collect jokes by defeating Name Droppers or Glad Handers using water balloons. The number of hits to defeat each Cog varies depending on the difficulty of the Sellbot Field Office; the Mega Movers require multiple hits and smaller Cogs may require more than one hit. Toons have a total of 240 seconds to defeat the Mega Movers and make their way to the exit; if the objective is not completed in time, they will go sad.
The Boiler Room full of high pressure sales is where Toons battle against a wave of Cogs and the boss. More Cogs may continue to spawn periodically from each side of the room until the boss is defeated. The boss may likely possess a number of unique abilities. Because of how tedious the boss battle is expected to be, it is essential that Toons collect as many jokes as possible to reclaim all gag tracks.
- The code name for Field Offices is known as "Cogdominiums".
- Sellbot Field Offices in Toontown Online worked differently. They occasionally spawned whenever a Sellbot took over a Toon Building, and were integrated in the spawn limit of how many Cog Buildings could appear in a street. They were counted as regular Cog Buildings that only featured the Mover & Shaker Office and the Executive Suite with a captured NPC. The NPCs that appeared in Sellbot Field Offices, however, offered SOS cards that were highly unfavorable by members of the Toontown community.
- According to a memo from The Chairman, Mover & Shakers were said to be awarded with their own "quality office" because of their significant performance in Doomsday. Since plans to build onto Sellbot Field Offices as an expansion were not yet realized at the time of when the memo was revealed in 2014, it is possible that the storyline may have also changed since then.
- Part of the exterior design for Toontown Rewritten's Sellbot Field Office was inspired by the Field Office from the discontinued Toontown 2.0 prototype. The animation of the Sellbot Field Office when it drops onto a Toon Headquarters is also drastically similar to that of the Toontown 2.0 prototype Field Office.
- The Cold Caller Office minigame was inspired by a single piece of Toontown Online concept artwork that depicts an icy office for Cold Callers.
- Sometime during the early development stage of Sellbot Field Offices, an original idea for a new Sellbot minigame was a "Backstage Tour" office of Mr. Hollywoods where Toons would battle against them as they fly by using Seltzer Bottles while riding inside a minecart, which was scrapped in favor of the Cold Caller Office because it was "too much work to take on".
- New information revolving around Sellbot Field Offices was revealed during the main panel of ReplayFX 2018, explaining how they work. Attendees could access Toontown Rewritten's internal developer server to playtest.
- More information was revealed during the main panel of ReplayFX 2019, introducing other portions of the Sellbot Field Office expansion such as the Toon Resistance's Hideout and the Cog Remote Control, both of which were conceptualized at the time. Completed props and GUI elements for the Cold Caller Office were also revealed, followed by a prototype runthrough of the minigame during the following Q&A panel.
- According to Toontown Rewritten on Twitter, Cogdominiums begin at 500,000 Cogbucks per week, making the housing market rough for the Cogs.
- 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.
- The Toontown Rewritten Team held their second ToonCast on June 8, 2020 that presented various clips showing the exterior and interior of Sellbot Field Offices.
- A few different clips showed the Mover & Shaker Office with a couple noticeable changes: Cold Callers were replaced by Glad Handers to roam the office, and Loopy Loopenloop appeared in the introduction GUI indicating that Resistance Rangers will provide a briefing.
- It should also be noted that a Storm Cloud used against one of the level 10 Cogs in the Executive Suite lowered their health meter to yellow. A maxed Storm Cloud would normally lower a level 10 Cog's health meter to orange, so it is likely that it was a bug of the rewritten battle system.
- The Toontown Rewritten Team held a "Behind the Tooniverse" panel during ToonFest at Home that served as the third quarter ToonCast. The panel presented rough percentages on the completion of all aspects of Sellbot Field Offices, along with some extra footage unveiled.
- On April 18, 2021, the Toontown Rewritten Team posted a video detailing the progress of their ongoing projects, as well as updated percentages on all aspects of Sellbot Field Offices.
