Which voice actor has the most minifigures?

Posted by ,

Last month we discovered that Warwick Davis is represented by more LEGO minifigures than any other actor. However, that investigation did not take voice performances into consideration, thereby excluding many popular characters.

Today's article does encompass voice performances, changing the appearance of the leader board quite dramatically as animated films and television series are taken into account. Find out which actor has the most minifigures after the break...

The factors which define a minifigure representation of an actor are as follows:

  • The minifigure must take direct inspiration from a film, television series or video game*.
  • Minifigures, characters, bigfigs, trophy figures and brick-built figures are taken into consideration.
  • Motion-capture performances are taken into consideration.
  • Voice performances are.taken into consideration.
  • Multiple minifigures of the same character are not counted, unless they appear in different media.
  • Acting credits are counted according to IMDB.

* For instance, the Nick Fury minifigure in 76004 Spider-Man: Spider-Cycle Chase does not count towards Samuel L. Jackson's total. However, the Nick Fury minifigure in 76042 SHIELD Helicarrier does.

You've got Vincent Tong listed under the six and seven category. Minor error. Needs to be removed from the six category.

Small mistake I noticed: Tara Strong voices Unikitty in the Unikitty! tv show, not in The LEGO Movie. In TLM Unikitty was voiced by Alison Brie.

A bit surprised Mixels isn't included in the list, wasn't sure if that would count thanks to the "brick built" measure mentioned in the qualifications or not.

I feel like the addendum of how many individual minifigs per character/actor would be nice here, but honestly that would probably be absurd to tally up, and Dee Bradley Baker would clearly come out on top either way. Also, if Bionicle characters count, he would dominate even harder with Vorox and the other creatures he voiced in TLR, not to mention all the other creatures that could be attributed to him. Man's an absolute legend.

If Mixels were included with this, Tom Kenny probably would've easily won

@ZootyCutie and TheBrickPal - Large scale characters from Mixels and BIONICLE have been excluded as I wanted to focus entirely upon minifigures and characters designed to interact with minifigures, as well as mini-dolls and DUPLO figures.

Thank you for the suggestions everyone. I have updated the article where necessary.

Ezra Miller should be on the list now, even if voice cast is excluded. He plays Flash in the DC movies and Credence in the Fantastic Beasts movies.

Can we add on the First Order Stormtrooper and Stormtrooper for Sam Witwer from Episode 7 and Rogue One, as well as Athex from the Vader's Castle for Secrets of the Empire? Because he would be at 5.

Even if you exclude larger-scale constraction figures, you should at least include the Bionicle Toa Hordika minifigures from 2005 and the Hero Factory minifigures from 2014. This adds quite a few people to the list and more appearances for some of the people already on it. Here are a bunch of additions I was able to come up with:

Brian Drummond (+2: Toa Hordika Onewa and Toa Hordika Matau from Bionicle)
Paul Dobson (+1: Toa Hordika Whenua from Bionicle)
Alessandro Juliani (3: Toa Hordika Vakama from Bionicle, Aaron Fox from Nexo Knights, and Kapau/Kapau'rai from Ninjago)
Karen Strassman: (2: Olivia from Friends, Natalie Breez from Hero Factory)
Tabitha St. Germain (2: Mystake from Ninjago, Toa Hordika Nokama from Bionicle)

Have to go now but stuff like the LEGO Friends TV show might be worth digging into a bit further.

This is turning out to be quite a challenge...... I'd like to see an actor / minifig counted per movie.... or TV series.... so Thor for example would be counted more than once as there have been more than one film, with a Lego character created for each film.... all played by the same Actor...... Star Wars, Lord of the Rings / Hobbit / Harry potter could have 4-9 count for one actor..... and TV series one per series.... so 9 x Kai... or whatever we are up to now for Ninjago.

doesn't Temuera Morrison get an extra figure as Boba Fett, since they dubbed him over Empire and Jedi when it was re-remastered (I think)?

Props to Vincent Tong for voicing so many characters. Ninjago represent!

That was an interesting list to browse through. That's quite a lot of figs and characters and voices to look into; thanks for taking the time to put this together.

@Redeye:
Genie should go to Robin Williams, since it's certainly based on the first movie and not anything that followed. And the rules should probably be updated to clarify who gets credit when more than one cast member voiced the exact same animated character. I'd argue that as long as there's more than one possible source, credit should always go to whoever did it first. So in the case of Genie, who appears exactly the same in three movies and a TV series, but whose CMF bears no clear indication of which it's based on, it should go to the first movie and Robin Williams. In the case of Leonardo from the third TMNT series, who is voiced by Jason Biggs for 1.75 seasons, Dominic Catrambone for the rest of S2, and Seth Green for the remainder of the series, Jason Biggs should get credit for all of the Leo minifigs, largely since the theme had pretty much wrapped up by the time they announced the first cast change, and the last two Leo minifigs can be clearly tied to Biggs' run.

It's not enough to say that someone played a particular character if you can't directly link the minifig to that portrayal. Usually the best source for this info is how the box is labelled. If it includes a logo from a movie or a TV series, that immediately restricts your options. If there's no logo, it really comes down to how you prioritize any potential cast members.

@Obi_G:
I suspect they're giving all the credit to Jeremy Bulloch, who was wearing the costume, and whose voice was the only voice we ever heard in Ep4 for 24 years. But that does get into an interesting dilemma, when one cast member wears the costume and another provides the voice. Boba Fett is more complex just on the fact that Bulloch did provide the original voice, so I'd say all OT Boba Fett minifigs should be credited based on the original cuts rather than whatever changes that have been made later on.

By in United States,

I think all the troopers for Dee should count as one seeing as they are all clones with the same voice! And obviously Lego went on the cheap for Ninjago and Chima getting a few actors to voice a ton of parts. Either way, this article doesn’t do much for me.

By in United States,

James Arnold Taylor is missing. At the very least he gets three from Star Wars for Obi-Wan Kenobi, Plo Koon, and Rako Hardeen. I know he has played the Flash in at least LEGO animated stuff for DC, so I don't know how you want to count that.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@JDC Yes and no. Rex, and Gregor have more definable voices to most of the other clones, there would be more names, but they don't have minifigures, so I won't worry about them. He actually works hard to give all the clones certain traits and there are actually diagrams Dee has made showing which character gets what type of a voice.

Since Frozone is not under Samuel L Jackson, brick-built figures excludes Brickheadz, right?

Would be interesting if they added in constraction figures into the mix, Lee Tocker would get a decent amount of BIONICLE credits. No surprise that Dee Bradley Baker took the top.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@JDC: I wouldn't say LEGO went "on the cheap" with their own shows. It's basically standard practice for animated TV shows to have many of their actors voice more than one character. Just look how many classic Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies characters (even ones who appear in the same episodes together) were voiced by Mel Blanc.

Corey Burton also did the voice of Brainiac in the Lego DC Super-Villains Video Game as well as Legion of Super Heroes, Justice League, Justice League Unlimited, Static Shock and Superman the Animated series.

It'll be interesting to see what else the voice actors that have only really done Lego's own IP kids tv will move onto next. A lot of the talent up there is for Ninjago and Legends of Chima but hopefully with the popularity of Ninjago (maybe not so much in the UK but definitely the USA) they should find other parts easy to find.

I know it would only count actors with physical figures, but wonder who do nonphysical but featured characters such as City Undercover work?

And technically all the characters in toy promotional materiala and mini cartoons outside the main shows would count, such as LEGO NEWS, but I see that might be too tiring to source and also too obscure. Not many would care who voiced for a random thief from a City police set unless s/he is part of the main voice cast.

Yeah Redeye... Genie could go to Robin in my opinion since I think he is the one who voiced the character first, but I'd consider it honorary to Dan to (maybe just count both?). That makes me curious, since Robin's passing has Dan returned to voice Genie?

Speaking of the Clone Troopers... Rex and Cody only have some subtle voice variations, but the fact they are so prominent characters makes me think they both get separate dues is fine (although using my same logic with Robin Williams as the Genie... you could almost say that Temura Morrison gets the listing for Cody and not Dee Bradley!) However someone such as Gregor is a wildly different voice despite being the same actor playing 'another clone character' especially in Rebels were Gregor is so unhinged.

I find the inclusion of voice actors makes this less interesting tbh. A minifig recreates a character's appearance, not their voice. The fig would look the same regardless who did the voice-over. I'm more interested in looking at how the same actor is portrayed in different figures - like the use of the same face for Dooku and Saruman. This just gets a bit confused and rather meaningless. But then it seems to have got people talking, so what do I know?

It bugged me how many people get lots of credits for characters in the same franchise, so I made a list where I consolidated them:
x5:
Clancy Brown - [Dogpound (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)], [Savage Opress (Star Wars)], [Mr Krabs (SpongeBob Squarepants)], [Taskmaster (Marvel Super Heroes)], [Lex Luthor (DC Super Heroes)]
x4:
Dee Bradley Baker - [Commander Wolffe, Saesee Tiin, Clone Trooper(s), Onaconda Farr, Captain Rex, Thi-Sen, Commander Cody, Commander Fox, Gregor, Commander Gree (Star Wars)], [Sandman (Marvel Super Heroes)], [Tick Tock Croc (Jake and the Never Land Pirates)], [Momo (Avatar: The Last Airbender)]
Grey Griffin - [Prince Puppycorn, Fee Bee (Unikitty!)], [Naare (Star Wars)], [Captain Marvel (Marvel Super Heroes)], [Wonder Woman (DC Super Hero Girls)]
John Ratzenberger - [Hamm (Toy Story)], [The Underminer (The Incredibles)], [Major Bren Derlin (Star Wars)], [Mack (Cars)]
Jason Isaacs - [Leland Turbo, Siddeley (Cars)], [The Inquisitor (Star Wars)], [Lucius Malfoy (Harry Potter)]
x3:
Roger Craig Smith - [Hawkodile, Richard (Unikitty!)], [Ripslinger (Planes)], [Captain America (Marvel Super Heroes)]
Tara Strong - [Unikitty, Kickflip (Unikitty!)], [Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy (DC Super Hero Girls)], [Raven (Teen Titans Go)]
Vincent Tong - [Kai, Lizaru, Chokun, Ray, Doubloon (NINJAGO)], [Jestro (Nexo Knights)], [Tidus Stormsurfer (Elves)]

Thanks for doing the hard work though, interesting article.

@purple-dave as a counter point though, Lucas said that the latest iteration of the movie was the definitive release (regardless of where you stand on it) so arguably, any character produced AFTER that change could be credited to either actor!

Wouldn’t the other carnations of Monstrox count? Because the Book is just one of his many forms. (i.e. The Cloud of Monstrox, or his hologram in the more recent sets?)

Warwick Davis was also 2 Gringotts goblins in Harry Potter (both of which are represented in 4714 Gringott's Bank); the goblin bank teller that Hagrid asks to allow Harry a withdrawl, and Griphook. At least credit him for Griphook, as the minifigure listed as HP079 Goblin, Dark Red Torso, has been more or less confirmed as Griphook.

@Aanchir:
There's actually rules against going too crazy with that now. The limit appears to be that they can have you voice any three characters per movie/episode and pay you the same as if you only voiced one. Any more than three and they have to bump your pay per character. I think this was partly done to "spread the wealth" by discouraging them from bringing in someone like Mel Blanc and having that one person record _everything_ to save them from casting any other voice talent. And partly it's probably about protecting the one person who would have ended up doing everything. People don't realize it, but voice acting is hard on your pipes. Most pros only work 3-4 hours max per session or they can wear out their voice. By piling all the characters on one person, it puts a lot of extra stress on their vocal chords. By requiring them to pay extra for more characters, it encourages them to spread the workload as well. It may still be cheaper to tap an A-list voice talent for a few quick lines, and on a TV series it may be unavoidable if they've already cast that person to voice a range of minor characters. Simpsons and Futurama are great examples of animated series where they have/had a handful of voice talent who ended up picking up a crazy amount of one-time and recurring characters in addition to voicing several major characters and probably regularly had to pay out extra for doing 4+ characters in a single episode.

The list is missing Ashley Eckstein - Ahsoka Tano, and the Star Wars Rebels crew.

By in United States,

BluYoshi, It doesn't work like that. If the character is the same, even though there are different versions of the minifigs, it still only counts as one minifig. One where it is different is for J. K. Simmons. Even though he has played J. Jonah Jameson multiple times, when it comes to minifigures, one is from the Raimi Spider-Man Movies, and the other from the Ultimate Spider-Man animated show. They have the same name, but are different interpretations of the same character, and are not in the same continuity. So with Ahsoka, even though there are three versions of Ahsoka in minifig form, because it is still that same character in the same continuity, she only counts as one for Ashley.

@The Rancor: A lot of the voice actors who are only credited with LEGO roles on this list have had plenty of non-LEGO roles, such as English language anime dubs, video game voiceovers, and Hasbro/Mattel licensed shows and movies. Some even do live action work for TV shows and movies that are shot in Canada (a good example is Clay’s voice actor from LEGO Nexo Knights who has played lots of roles for Hallmark Channel shows and movies). But in general, most LEGO licenses skew towards Hollywood blockbusters or TV shows with ties to Hollywood blockbusters, so a lot of the actors who are represented in licensed themes are big name celebrities rather than people who have specialized in voice work all their lives.

@Nintynuts Thank you! I was about to post the same thing! (Seems unfair that people get ranked high because Ninjago's too lazy and/or cheap to hire more voice actors.)
ALL HAIL CLANCY BROWN!

You've got Clancy Brown "consolidated" when he's got five productions with one voice each.

@TheLantz:
That's Mr. The Kurgan to you.

I would maybe like to see a separate ranking that limits each actor by number of total properties less so than separate characters. A lot of the top spots are dominated because The Simpsons and NINJAGO and Chima reuse actors for multiple roles, which is a common practice in animation, and I'm always happy to recognize these people for their talent but I've always found the kind of entries that really blow people's mind are more seeing people distributed across themes, such as how how Chris Pratt is present in three separate themes. This would bump up Clancy Brown, for example, while bumping down Dee Bradley Baker and Tara Strong.

I'm not complaining about the absolutely correct numbers in the article though, you've done wonderful, just another way to list it all out.

Some other additions:
• Scott McNeil voiced all the goblins in LEGO Elves: Secrets of Elvendale (though I suppose it's probably probably only fair to credit this as one voice role rather than crediting all ten goblin characters from the sets individually)
• Michael Adamthwaite also voiced the LEGO Ninjago characters Tai-D (credited in the episode as "gizmo" because the character was not yet named) and Sqiffy.
• Paul Dobson also voiced the LEGO Ninjago character Neuro.
• Brian Dobson also voiced the LEGO Ninjago character Zugu and the LEGO Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles character Jek-14
• If brick-built characters designed to interact with minifigures are being credited, then Jason Simpson should be credited not only for the LEGO Nexo Knights minifigures Reex and Roog, but also Rumble, their older brother who appears as the "vehicle" portion of #70350-1.
• Dave Filoni should be added to the list, having voiced Embo in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Chopper in Star Wars: Rebels

The Toa Hordika minifigure voice credits from I mentioned above also have not yet been added to the list. Any particular reason why?

I also agree somewhat with JVM, it would be cool to see another list showing whose roles have been represented as minifigures in the most LEGO themes.

Wow, Vincent Tong's got quite a portfolio!
I only knew he was Kai and Jestro. I didn't know he did all those other guys :D

If only we had gotten Surtur in some form from Thor: Ragnarok, we could have had an extra Clancy Brown credit, from yet another theme.

Jeremy Bullock wore the costume, but he did not voice Boba Fett. That honour belongs to Jason Wingreen, who is actually the very first actor to play the character. Fett made his debut in the Holiday Special cartoon (where he was voiced by Wingreen), long before The Empire Strikes Back was released. He reprised the role in Episodes V & VI.

@rocket1377:
First person to ever play Boba Fett was Duwayne Dunham, who walked the San Anselmo County Fair parade on September 24, 1978, but they've never released a set based on that real-life parade. Two months after that is when Gabriel Dell and Don Francks voiced Fett for the Holiday Special (both uncredited, and I see no mention anywhere of Wingreen being involved with the Holiday Special), but they've also never released a set based on the Holiday Special animation. And both of those minifigs, if they were to be made, should ideally be distinct from any of the minifigs that have been released. Holiday Special has an entirely different color scheme, and the parade costume had been given the basic post-white paintjob from TESB but had not yet been distressed with all the battle damage. The only photos from that parade are really low quality from the local paper (and some are B/W), so I'm not even sure if the basic color scheme didn't see considerable changes going into film production.

But you are right. Somehow it had managed to escape my attention that Wingreen did the voice for the original cut of TESB. Since Fett had no spoken lines in RotJ, Bulloch is the only credit listed for that movie. And Mark Anthony Austin wore the costume for the cut scene from ANH that got updated and added back in for ANH:SE. As far as the OT goes, I know there were also a couple of guys who subbed in for Bulloch when he wasn't available, but I figure they'd be classified as stunt cast, who never factor into discussions about who has the most minifigs. If we ever hit that point, it would be a very messy thing to figure out, because for characters that go through several costume changes (*coughLEIAcough*), you'd have to be able to verify which costumes were worn by stunt cast, _and_ match that up with an existing minifig. Blech.

Too many comments to check them all, sorry if I’m a repeat :) But I believe Warwick Davis also played Griphook the Goblin in Harry Potter- to continue adding to his ridiculous amount of “We needed a short person” roles :D

Great list!

Tara Strong also voiced Mary Jane Watson in the Ultimate Spider-Man Cartoon, and MJ appeared in 76016: Spider-Helicopter Rescue which is branded on the box with the Ultimate Spider-Man logo. So she should be in the six figure list.

@Ben Gatz:
Davis as Griphook has been brought up many times in the past, but is just as often dismissed on the basis that a) no goblin minifig is ever identified as Griphook, and b) that the only minifig that matches the look of Griphook in any film predates Davis' portrayal of the character. Turns out its a bit more complicated.

The first two goblin minifigs come from the 4714 Gringott's Bank set from 2002. One of the goblins has a dark-red jacket that matches the look of the outfit worn by Griphook in the first film. The tricky part is, that's not Davis under the costume. While he did provide the voice, the actual man under the makeup was no less than Verne "Mini-Me" Troyer (yeah, weird, right?). This presents a special conundrum because this type of list has never really addressed who gets credit with a dual-portrayal like this before. Possibly this has been pointedly sidelined by the convenient rule that the minifig must be clearly established as representing that character, which in Griphook's case there aren't any such minifigs.

The other two minifigs came in 2011's 10217 Diagon Alley set from around the time that the movie series was wrapping up. Again, neither minifig is named, and they even share the same torso with Flitwick. There's also no indication of which movie(s) this set is based on.

Now, Davis did play one other goblin, body _and_ voice, in the first film, which is the first goblin that Harry interacts with. However, he's only credited as Goblin Bank Teller on IMDB, and in the film he appears to be wearing a dark-brown jacket and vest. The 4714 goblin that's not dressed in dark-red has a black jacket and a blue vest, while the two 10217 goblins share a black jacket with a tan vest.

Ummm...where's Mark Hamill? Seriously: Joker (DCAU and Video games), Trickster (Live-action on two different Flash series, video games, and 'lego movies') and of course Luke Skywalker (Star Wars, natch'). He's also voice acted other characters as well, just my 'wikibrain' can't match to other characters w/figures.

@brick_r:
While the 2006 Joker minifig from the Batman theme is clearly based on Mark Hamill's original B:TAS Joker, none of those sets referenced any shows or movies. Trickster is, um, tricky, because of the DVD he shipped with. Hamill never wore any costume that looked like the minifig for either Flash series (that part is at least easy to sort out), but the minifig shipped with a DVD that featured the character looking exactly like the minifig. It's hard to say whether the minifig was based on the animation, or the animation was based on the minifig, without getting insight into the whole development process on both. There are definitely a lot of existing minifigs that have appeared in the DVD series, and I'd say those should always be excluded, but maybe DVD exclusive minifigs should be allowed. Either they ship with their first animated appearance, or they're based on the way they appeared in a previous DVD movie. BTW, this does open up the possibility of someone else getting on the list for Batman, as I think the Buccaneer Batman is based on one of the DVDs.
