The Lego Movie Character Guide – Master Builders
An ancient and heroic wizard who prophesizes that a “Special” will defeat Lord Business and become the greatest LEGO Master Builder of all. He tries to teach Emmet that the key to true building is to believe in yourself and follow your own set of instructions inside your head.
Hailing from Cloud Cuckoo Land, the capital of rainbows and puppies, she is half unicorn, half animé kitten and one endless dance party. She is happy to join her fellow LEGO Master Builders in the quest to defeat Lord Business, but she also has a powerful secret.
She is a master of disguise. When needed, she dresses up as Biznis Kitty. When Robo SWATs invade her home, she loses control of her positive thoughts and becomes Angry Kitty. Presumably, when she goes aboard Metalbeard’s Ship ship she becomes Queasy Kitty, and when aboard Benny’s Spaceship she becomes Astro Kitty.
Nicknamed “Honest Abe” because he never borrows anybody’s bricks without giving them back, Abraham Lincoln lives in a log cabin that he built all by himself, in the middle of a forest that he built all by himself, then cut down, and then rebuilt all by himself again.
Abraham Lincoln is full of good and fair advice, so his fellow Master Builders often ask him to settle arguments over who gets to build what. He would probably make a great leader, but President Business’s Octan Corporation makes all of the voting machines!
Marsha Queen of the Mermaids
You don’t need to have legs to be a Master Builder! With the help of her creative imagination, the Mermaid Queen has assembled an entire underwater realm for herself and her mermaid pals. Brick by brick, she builds colorful coral reefs, fields of waving seaweed, and an almost endless variety of fish and other sea life.
But not even the deep brick sea is safe from Lord Business’s wicked plan. Now she is in hiding like her fellow Master Builders, waiting for the signal to gather and unite behind the prophesied hero known only as the Special!
Most believe the Panda Guy to be a simple mascot in a panda bear costume. But in times of trouble, he reveals himself as an undercover Master Builder who has sworn to free the citizens of Bricksburg from the shackles of instructions-based rules and conformity.
The Panda Guy is determined to foil Lord Business’s evil plots, although he has never succeeded so far. In his attempts to break into the Octan office tower, he hasn’t yet made it past the laser gates, let alone the sharks and the laser-sharks. Maybe the long-awaited Special will finally be the answer to completing his mission!
The celebrated wordsmith William Shakespeare is also a celebrated Master Builder, constructing brick creations with the same wit and grace with which he composes epic sonnets and speeches for his plays.
When Emmet addresses the gathered Master Builders at their secret meeting place in Cloud Cuckoo Land, everyone expects him to give a brilliant and rousing speech. But when Emmet’s words fail to inspire, Shakespeare is the first to express his disdain!
Michelangelo was formerly, along with his three, older brothers, a normal turtle, who was bought in a pet store by Splinter, when he was a human named Hamato Yoshi. Yoshi then saw many strange men (The Kraang) meeting. Those men carried a mutegen and when confronted by Yoshi, it was dropped onto the turtles spilled cage and Yoshi. The mutagen mutated Michelangelo and his three brothers into larger, more intelligent mutants, while turning Splinter into a giant rat. He then hid out in the sewers for 15 years, until the four turtles persuaded Splinter to let them go up to the surface. He is the one who loves to party and goof off and is one of the Master Builders of the LEGO world.
