|Vehicles and/or Gadgets||Benny's Spaceship|
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. He is missing his right arm, which was replaced with a Dr. Inferno/Claw-Dette arm. 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 who 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 he 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. He 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 was 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.
Benny shows up at the Octan Tower when Wyldstyle said that gravity is all wrong. Then he gets sucked into a vortex, after he said that he would have noticed something like that. It is possible that Benny may get captured, however, then return back to his world.
