Sellbot Field Offices | Backstage Toontown

Posted by The Toontown Team on August 19, 2019 at 2:00 PM

ToonFest may have only ended a little less than a month ago -- but we're not done talking about Sellbot Field Offices just yet! On the Main Event panel, we went in-depth about what we want the brand new endgame content for Toontown to be, and what we want YOUR feedback on.

Going forward, we plan to place a major focus on more Backstage Toontown content, starting with the development of Sellbot Field Offices. Being more transparent with Toontown's players is very important, and we want YOU to be a part of the development process. During the Q&A panel at ToonFest, we answered countless questions about the development of Field Offices and Toontown itself -- but there's way more to talk about than we could have fit into two whole panels. Because of that, this week will be filled with Backstage Toontown content related to Sellbot Field Offices!

Sellbot Field Offices


The Toontown Blog is dedicating this week to Sellbot Field Offices. To keep things simple, the posts will be released on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. To start off, we'll be going over everything you may have missed from the convention!

To preface this post, everything written here is subject to change. We're conducting loads of internal playtests -- not to mention listening to the community's feedback! Don't be surprised if a feature outlined here is majorly reworked or outright scrapped when Sellbot Field Offices hit the streets. Above all, our goal is to deliver on the most fun and challenging experience possible!

To start our series of Backstage Toontown posts, we'll be giving a quick rundown on the overall mechanics of Sellbot Field Offices. As we release more posts, we'll go more in-depth with the individual pieces. 

What are Sellbot Field Offices?

These highly anticipated 'boss buildings' bring a new difficulty level to Toontown. They're more than just any standard Cog Building -- they bring the luxuries of a Cog HQ into the field. That means that entering a Field Office is much like entering a Cog HQ -- you're on their turf. Sellbot Field Offices enter Toontown by taking over a Toon HQ, the safe zone of a dangerous street. 

Sellbot Field Offices are unique in that they aren't defeated after just one run. Every run takes Toons through a Field Office Annex, a single wing of the entire building. Each Annex acts as a health point for the entire Field Office. To take it down, multiple groups of Toons will need to take down every Annex!

In each Sellbot Field Office Annex, there are two mini-games which need to be completed to continue. These are the Cold Caller Ice Game and the Mover & Shaker Maze Game. In the Mover & Shaker Maze Game, your goal is to defeat the boss Cogs with water balloons while collecting as many jokes from the smaller Cogs as you can. Toons who played Toontown Online during the later years may remember the Mover & Shaker Maze Game -- but this time around it comes at a much higher difficulty. Unlike the original monstrosity, the modern Mover & Shaker maze game can get quite frantic!

The Cold Caller Ice Game is an entirely new mini-game developed by the Toontown Rewritten Team. For the sake of keeping this Backstage post from growing any more, we've decided to split info about the Ice Game off into a separate post -- so check back soon to get the full scoop on that! The Ice Game is something we're really proud of and can't wait to show you.


As briefly mentioned at last year's ToonFest, there's also a brand-new Boss Cog at the top of every Field Office Annex. The boss will re-define the rules of a Cog battle and challenge even the oldest of Toontown veterans -- but it's not ready to show off quite yet. In a future Field Office development update, we'll have more details to share.


As stated before, completing all of that only defeats a single Field Office Annex. That means that a Field Office needs multiple groups to battle it before it can be conquered! This requires massive teamwork, all in the spirit of Toontown. This also means that Field Offices will generally stay around for a while before they're defeated.


Let's reel ourselves back in, that's a lot of information to process! However, there's so much more to Sellbot Field Offices that we'll be discussing in Backstage posts coming soon. Above all, we want to hear YOUR feedback on what we're doing with Sellbot Field Offices. The best way to deliver that feedback is to send an email to [email protected] -- they'll get your feedback along to the developers as fast as possible! While we can't respond to every single piece of feedback, we do read all of them. With your help, Sellbot Field Offices will be the best update we've ever created!

As briefly discussed at ToonFest at ReplayFX 2019, we plan to expand Toontown Backstage into livestreams on our YouTube and Twitch channels. We've also got plans to post work in progress Field Office news on our other social media pages in the coming months -- so be sure to check that out as well!

We hope you're just as excited as we are about Sellbot Field Offices and Backstage Toontown, and we can't wait to share even more information with you. Expect another two Backstage Toontown Blog Posts very soon detailing the rest of Sellbot Field Offices in-depth -- just keep your eyes peeled on the Toontown Blog and follow us on Social Media so you don't miss it!

This is going to be so cool!

Super Zippy said on August 19, 2019 at 2:31 PM
I'm so hyped for Field Offices! I can't wait to try them out soon. Thank you very much, TTR Team! You are all Toontastic! #FieldOfficeHype

Captain Ricky Dandypow said on August 19, 2019 at 2:33 PM
Sounds like a huge renovation of the TTO Field Office concept. Can't wait to see more specifics and details of what you've done with their original concept. I like the multi-layer annex part, sets them apart from just any other building. Keep it up!!

buckzilla said on August 19, 2019 at 2:35 PM
oh yeah..... I've been waiting for these to hit streets

Mister J.C. said on August 19, 2019 at 2:38 PM
I NEEEEEED ITTTTTT.

Captain Ricky Dandypow said on August 19, 2019 at 2:39 PM
I also love the "Sellbot Field Offices" logo! Looks very Art Neauvo, like right out of the 1920's or 1930's

Mr. Toon said on August 19, 2019 at 2:39 PM
Can't wait!

Dream Dog said on August 19, 2019 at 2:52 PM
I daresay this is definitely a step in the right direction compared to the original Toontown Online.

Everlaffing Cogstopper said on August 19, 2019 at 3:21 PM
This IS THE BEST TOONTOWN UPDATE EVER!

Penelope And Cool Dot said on August 19, 2019 at 3:39 PM
WE CAN'T WAIT FOR IT??????

Midnight said on August 19, 2019 at 4:02 PM
OH SNAP it's happening.

Garrett said on August 19, 2019 at 4:27 PM
When you said during toonfest you could unlock the ability to go to the resistance hq I really thought that was a good idea. I hope that will be added with the release of the field offices

Weird Curly Megaquack said on August 19, 2019 at 4:34 PM
These sound *super* hard, but also a huge improvement over how Field Offices were on TTO. I just hope my Toon is up for the challenge. . . or at least will be once Field Offices come out, because I don't want to miss a thing. But I think what excites me the most is seeing how Field Offices will fit into the TTR storyline. I'm sure it will *also* be a huge improvement over how it was handled on TTO. Can't wait for more info!

SuperGusBeanBurger said on August 19, 2019 at 4:38 PM
OMG they're bringing them back

Yolanda said on August 19, 2019 at 4:55 PM
So excited! I can't wait!

Mr Dynamite said on August 19, 2019 at 5:24 PM

Pug said on August 19, 2019 at 5:48 PM

ShadicPR said on August 19, 2019 at 6:25 PM

Cupcake said on August 19, 2019 at 6:49 PM
This sounds AMAZING! I wasn't a member on TTO, so Field Offices are still a bit foreign to me. Cant wait for this new challenge!

Mottito Ravioli said on August 19, 2019 at 7:13 PM
I am SO excited! This new feature is going to be AMAZING! Keep up the work, and thank you very much for making these new features possible, TTR team!

Z.Z. Zooblezapper said on August 19, 2019 at 7:23 PM

Wow amazing to get news on this. Thank you for keeping this awesome game alive

I'm so excited for this epic update!

Coach Ginger McFlurry said on August 19, 2019 at 10:24 PM
This sounds awesome! How common are these going to be?

Cap'n Midnight said on August 19, 2019 at 10:50 PM
More diverse endgame content is always a welcome addition.

Zephyr said on August 19, 2019 at 11:36 PM
I'm pretty stoked to hear about this!

Doctor Cranky Featherboom said on August 20, 2019 at 2:20 AM
Oh I cant wait new stuff

Knuckles Blubbernugget said on August 20, 2019 at 2:32 AM
Oh wow, this looks like a much bigger advancement from the original Field Offices that was just a unique cog building that took over a Toon building. Now we have a gauntlet/dungeon that takes over street Toon HQs, yikes!

Princess said on August 20, 2019 at 2:38 AM
This is so awesome! Can't wait to see them in game. Good job TTR!

Chief Truffles said on August 20, 2019 at 2:55 AM
That's epic. I've been waiting for all this time. Great to hear this.

chakra said on August 20, 2019 at 3:58 AM
please have different rewards from the field offices, not just sos cards. maybe unlockable gear once you've beat x amount of field offices :)

Merrigold said on August 20, 2019 at 6:22 AM
will you be doing the original sellbot field offices as well on the normal street building as seen in TTO? that would be a great addition to the buildings that are not just turned into cog buildings.

Cattington said on August 20, 2019 at 6:47 AM
awesome! i can’t wait! y’all are awesome-

Ginger Sparklesticks said on August 20, 2019 at 7:07 AM
Woah so exciting, Can't wait to learn more about it and when Field Offices hit the streets :D TOONS OF THE WORLD UNITE!! <3

Dianna said on August 20, 2019 at 8:48 AM

Super exciting you’re taking something classic and adding a new and exciting spin!

Lucky Justyn said on August 20, 2019 at 1:26 PM
Ohh boy! this is gonna be interesting! can't wait to see whats in store!

white bear said on August 20, 2019 at 1:37 PM
re: remote control. Can it work on the street so you can stop a cog from flying away while you are in a street battle? Seeing a cog you need fly off because you are still dancing is @[email protected] ugh.

Li'l Diva said on August 20, 2019 at 3:23 PM
Field offices were a favorite activity of mine. Can't wait!

Little Tom Jabbermonkey said on August 20, 2019 at 3:50 PM
THIS IS EXCITING :D

Wildbrains said on August 20, 2019 at 6:27 PM
Love to see new and exciting end game content. Definitely keeps the players that have been here for a while interested. Hope to see more like this great job!

Prof Bingo said on August 20, 2019 at 11:44 PM
I'm so excited to see the field offices done right!

Prof. Dudley Dizzenteeth said on August 21, 2019 at 5:18 AM
So the cogs think they can march into our HQs and take em over like any old building? They won't be able to hold em for long! I'd like to see them try! Toons of the world, unite!

Petey Piranha (109 Laff) said on August 21, 2019 at 12:21 PM
Two bosses are going to face off in this twist!

Dr. Coconut said on August 21, 2019 at 6:36 PM
Ok this is epic

Thomas Blue said on August 22, 2019 at 10:11 PM
I can't wait for this woo!

Captain Fiddledorf said on August 23, 2019 at 6:03 AM
I want it!

Eclipse King said on August 23, 2019 at 9:55 AM
I have been playing toontown for over ten years, and I don't think I have ever been more excited than I am now. I can't wait to see these new fights and buildings! Keep up the awesome work!

Chica said on August 23, 2019 at 2:13 PM
And within a month after the FO release: "Ugh, that Field office is still there, so annoying!" ;w; still excited for the update though

Cool Comet said on August 25, 2019 at 6:43 AM
