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. When that Toon Headquarters is captured, it captures that Toon Headquarters in all districts of Toontown. 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.
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 building, 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.
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 through the Cold Callers' icy office to turn up the thermostats. Cold Callers will fight back by attempting to turn the thermostats back down. To reclaim gag tracks, Toons must collect jokes from filing cabinets around the office. 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 a thermostat and disable it, therefore preventing any Cold Caller from turning the temperature back up on that thermostat. Any Toon with a wrench above their head signifies their possession of one. Before continuing onto the next floor, Toons must ensure that the room is defrosted by keeping the temperature up with the thermostats, therefore unfreezing the exit. Toons have a total of 240 seconds to heat up the room and make their way to the exit; if the objective is not completed in time, they will go sad.
Mover & Shaker Office
Toons need to grab water balloons from water coolers scattered across the maze office to defeat four large Mover & Shakers called "Mega Movers". To reclaim more gag tracks, Toons must continue to collect jokes by defeating Name Droppers and Glad Handers 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. 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 on each side of the room until the boss is defeated. The boss possesses unique attributes such as the ability to potentially unlure, heal, and promote the Cogs during battle. Because of how tedious the boss battle may 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 "Cog-dominiums".
- Sellbot Field Offices in Toontown Online worked differently. They occasionally spawned whenever a Mover & Shaker 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 The Chairman's memo, 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 the animation 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.
- 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 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 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, Field Offices 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. The ToonCast 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. Along with Lord Lowden Clear, a randomized Resistance Ranger will provide a briefing as Toons enter the Sellbot Field Office.
- The Toontown Rewritten Team held a "Behind the Tooniverse" panel during ToonFest at Home that served as the third quarter ToonCast. The panel presented an in-depth analysis on the development of every prominent feature for Sellbot Field Offices, along with some new footage unveiled.
