H.R. Giger’s Xenomorph design is a perennial favorite among LEGO builders, and I’m looking forward to another batch of great LEGO aliens with the release of Alien: Covenant today. With a bar set very high by the likes of the Arvo Brothers, but this bust of the original alien from the 1979 Ridley Scott movie might be my favorite so far. Blair Archer has built a clear-domed carapace over a skull-like face, with the secondary jaws spitting out from a drooling mouth. This is not the otherworldly lifeform you’d want to meet in a darkened Nostromo corridor.
This black-and-white photo shows off the skull and overall shape of the bust better, with a tail that wraps around the base.
The secondary jaw retracts and the mouth closes into the elongated head.
