The LEGO Movie

Emmet, an ordinary mini-figure, is mistaken for "The Special" after he finds the "Piece of Resistance" the only thing standing in the way of President Business' plan of utter domination of the universe. As a result, Emmet finds himself in way over his head, as he is whisked away on a mission to stop the tyrant with the aid of the old mystic Vitruvius, action-girl WyldStyle, robot pirate Metalbeard, Cloudcuckoolander Unikitty, 1980s-something space guy Benny, and Batman.

animated movie The LEGO Movie © Warner Bros. / Village Roadshow Pictures / LEGOThe film was entirely made using CGI designed to look like stop-motion, including limiting the articulation of the figures to that which real Lego pieces would have - very little movement in other words.

The various numbers that appear next to bricks, etc, in the Master Builders "vision" are the real-life part numbers of their corresponding pieces in the Lego catalogue.

Octan, outside of the movie, is a fictional gasoline and oil company in the LEGO toyline that dates back to 1992, with the "Gas N' Wash Express". It replaced a licence from Shell Oil that LEGO had used up to that point.
