Say hello to Benny
It’s no secret that we are big fans of Benny the 80’s something Space Guy from The LEGO Movie. So imagine our delight when Chris Miller, the director of the upcoming movie tweeted a picture of the Benny minifigure that’s due to appear in sets 70816 Benny’s Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP! and 70810 MetalBeard’s Sea Cow. Benny is of course based upon the spacemen minifgs from the Classic LEGO Space theme from the early 80’s. These minifigures are famous for picking up a few scraps and knocks as well as their helmets snapping at the join of the chin strip. Both of these iconic mishaps have been translated into the actual minfigure, which has made us love Benny even more. Benny and The LEGO Movie assembles in cinemas on February 14th.
Thanks to Allen from The Brick Fan for retweeting the original tweet
