Hero Overview


SPACE SHIP!
~ Benny

Ben the 1980-Something Space Guy (nicknamed Benny by his fellow master builders) is a minifigure who is a major character in The Lego Movie and a supporting character in its 2019 sequel The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part.

He is voiced by Charlie Day who previously voiced Art in Monsters University.

Appearance

Benny wears a cracked, bright blue space helmet. Benny's head is yellow, with black pupil-less eyes and a huge, open mouthed smile. He has a red tongue that is visible. Benny's torso is completely bright blue with the faded, classic space logo. He wears a bright blue jet pack as well. Benny's legs are completely bright blue. The cracked helmet may be because many of the classic spacemen's helmets got cracked in that place however, the logos didn't fade that much.

Background

The LEGO Movie

The original version of Benny came out in 1984, in set 6824 "Space Dart", thus him being called "1980-something space guy" by Vitruvius. Since he is an old minifigure, he has a worn out appearance with his chest logo being partially erased and his helmet cracked at one spot. The cracked part on his helmet is said to cause oxygen to leak from his suit, which is alleged to affect his brain.

As a result, Benny holds an all-too-happy attitude and short-term attention span to everything but those involving spaceships, even getting so excited, his vocabulary completely turns into yells of "SPACESHIP!" However, when times call for extended travel between worlds, his vast knowledge turns invaluable to those whom need it—and an undamaged spacesuit, too. Benny also has a sibling relationship to both Red Classic Spaceman and White Classic Spaceman.

Benny joins Emmet's team and helps them build a submarine to escape. Then him and the rest get saved by Emmet's Double-Decker Couch and Metalbeard comes back for them and the Master Builders team up to stop Lord Business from using the Kragle by building a spaceship to get inside. Him and Metalbeard sneak in the control room to disable the shield, but get captured by Bad Cop. After Emmet rescues them, Benny and the others go downstairs to the TV studio to get everybody's attention to stop Lord Business. After the announcement, Benny builds a spaceship to get to Bricksburg, but were stopped by the Micro Managers. Emmet returns to stop them and the team help him out and hold them off. After the battle, Benny celebrates with the others.
