Benny may have spent too much time in space with a lack of oxygen, but this wacky character is also a Master Builder. Help him construct the Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP! of his dreams then help the heroes to evade the Robo Police interceptor. Open the central roof to access the computers and tools in the control room. Push the middle exhaust to extend the wings, unleash the hidden spring-loaded cannons and fire the stud blasters. Raise the satellite dish to release the spacebots. And if all that's not enough to fend off the enemy, detach the wing flyers to triple the threat. Includes 4 minifigures with accessories: Benny, Robo Emmet, Space Wyldstyle and Robo Pilot, plus an Astro Kitty figure.

Top Customer Reviews
When I watched the Lego movie, I loved this vehicle (and the character of Benny), because I grew up building and playing with the Lego spaceships of the late 80s and early 90s (Blacktron, Space Police, Ice Planet, Spyrius, etc., etc.). This set was pure nostalgia for me. Building it "felt" like those old big spaceship sets, and there are lots of pieces and aesthetic elements in this set that recall the classic Lego spaceships. Its design is much more modern however, so the end result is ultimately sleeker and more complex than the old sets. I guess what I'm trying to say is that it manages to be a great modern Lego set, without losing the classic "feel" of the heyday of Lego spaceships.
It's been probably 15 years since I last bought a Lego set for myself (I've been consistently buying them as gifts for young relatives though). That's how good this set is.
However this new vehicle has way more features then the old one. It has a cockpit as well, but this one can hold 3 figures. It has a hidden command center, movable wings with hidden missile launchers, detachable mini-vehicles which attach to the large wings, two cute little robots stored near the back, and more. It's well built and can hold up to play without falling apart. My 7-year-old son loves to play with it, while I love to put it on display. Trust me, it looks much better in person than it does in the picture, and the picture looks pretty good in its own right.
I purchased this from the Lego store for $99, which is a bargain given the quality of the kit, the number of pieces, and the tie in to the excellent Lego Movie. Highly recommended.
With this much charm in the movie, the s.S.S. has big brick shoes to fill. At 940 pieces for a $100 retail price, it's a pretty good price per piece without being ridiculously expensive like some of the boutique pieces. Compare to the Super Star Destroyer. Yes, it had 3152 pieces, but it retailed for $400, putting the price per piece higher than Benny's ship, and this isn't ridiculously priced for a birthday or Christmas present. It's also a very retro mix of pieces, though with modern construction techniques. The blue and yellow body hearken back to the early days of Lego Space, before Futuron, Space Police, Mars Exploration, Ice Planet, Blactron, and of course Star Wars. The yellow accents are a nice touch. I never thought we'd get the X-Wing canopy piece in old space yellow. An even better touch is the number of the ship: LL 929. This is one more than the old Galaxy Explorer set, with LL 928 emblazoned on the side. (There was also LL 918 and LL 924, so we're continuing a grand tradition.)
The construction is satisfying and fun. By building the ships in modules, you only open bags of pieces as you're about to use them, minimizing search time. Lego Technic construction techniques were borrowed here and there, especially on the engines. Time and again I found myself wondering why a piece was connected in a particular way, only to find that it was to enable some play feature or another. I didn't read the box as carefully as I should, allowing me to be pleasantly surprised by the engine that pushes in to contract the wings. There are also four spring-loaded missile launchers, two scout ships that can detach for independent action, a hatch containing tools and a fun reactor, and liberal use of decals. The old-school space control decos are recreated as a long decal atop a pair of finishing pieces, so your lego minifigs can control the ship the way vintage space ships were meant to be controlled. Oh, and a radar dish that raises and reveals a pair of robots to go forth into the night.
The ship is incredibly sturdy, and has a lovely heft to it. I haven't subjected it to a drop test, but I imagine a few bits would fall off but the overall structure would remain intact. It looks great from every angle, though the least care was spent on the bottom. I've added a few accents here and there with the extra pieces included. (Another aspect of modern Lego construction is the inclusion of a few extra pieces. No doubt it's cheaper to target the bags so that you get what you need or slightly more, rather than exactly what you need. It's a nice practice, one that I took advantage of.)
Minifig selection is very movie oriented. This is fine, given what the ship is, though if you're picking this up to mine for pieces for classic space building the figures won't be of much use to you. Benny is a must and with his aforementioned cracked helmet and scratched chest logo he's everything you'd want him to be. You can even swivel his head around to get a classic Lego smile. Also included are space decos of Wildstyle and Unikitty, which are fun. I can't get enough of the modern usages of the classic space logo. The set includes a robot-disguise Emmet, which is thematically appropriate, and a robot with an Octan flight suit to pursue them in a cute little black craft. I'll probably repurpose that as a Blacktron ship. I'm planning to get some classic astronaut figures in different colors to man the s.S.S., so the minifig selection isn't optimal for me, but it's totally appropriate given the scope of the movie.
In short, a beautiful ship that works wonderfully as a Lego Movie piece, fits in perfectly with a Classic Space collection, or just for parts for you to build your own grand Classic Space adventure. It's rare that a fully modern toy can invoke feelings of nostalgia, but if you grew up with Lego Space this set may just manage to do it. Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP!!!
I was equally delighted by how much everyone seemed to enjoy Benny, and the moment I heard of this set, I knew I had to have it. Its full of fantastic touches, including classic space themed versions of movie characters WildStyle and UniKitty (AstroKitty!). And Benny even has a reversible head so you can have him displaying the classic plain Lego smiley face, just like the old days.
The ship itself is a mix of old and new. Along with some pieces I haven't seen in a long time, you get a few classic space logos. The instructions and build "style" are strictly modern, but the color palette and style is, like Benny, a somewhat crazy and over-the-top version of classic space, filled to the brim with engines, computers, rockets, etc. Its more solid than it looks and overall even more impressive when built than how it appears on the image. Its also sturdier than you'd think for its size.
My one caveat is that, unlike the classic sets that were mostly about peaceful exploration, Benny's Spaceship is armed to the teeth. That's a small gripe though and understandable as they were in for quite a fight when it was built in the movie.
