Aquaman in The Lego Movie

We're all excited about Aquaman's upcoming appearance in Batman v Superman: Dawn of the Planet of the Justice of course, but did you know it's not the Sea King's first appearance on the silver screen? Eagle-eyed F.O.A.M.er Joseph Angsten managed to spot and capture Aquaman's cameo in first big Chris Pratt hit of 2014, The Lego Movie!

It's near the very end of the film, during the big celebration. All of the DC heroes who had appeared earlier--Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, and Green Lantern (who, for once, is the butt of all the jokes)--are there, but in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it appearance, so is Aquaman:
I saw The Lego Movie in the theaters, and while I enjoyed it quite a bit, I was a little disappointed that they managed to work in so many DC heroes but no Aquaman. I'm happy to find out I was wrong! Maybe this is a hint as to what's awaiting us in the inevitable sequel?

You can watch the scene here on YouTube, cued to the exact moment Aquaman shows up. Nice job Joseph!

I'm not sure I caught that either! I guess I didn't, or I'd remember it.

The Lego Movie was a real treat. I was totally surprised how entertaining it was. As a parent, I see a lot of nigh-unwatchable crap, but this is good stuff.

With all the submarine action in that movie Aquaman should have had a bigger role.

Just in time for another Aquaman themed Lego set, perhaps?
