Get Back to Work, LEGO Alien!

We like our LEGO builds around these parts. We really like our LEGO builds geeky, weird, and cool. Brothers Brick has turned up a fun LEGO construction, and it most certainly falls into the weird category. David Liu’s offbeat LEGO diorama features an Alien Xenomorph working in an office.

I mean, do Aliens even have jobs? On whatever home world they are from, are there office working xenomorphs schlepping away while the more skilled creatures get to ply the universe looking for faces to cram eggs into and chests to burst out of?

The scene comes complete with a rolling chair, briefcase, and a desk with a computer, and the Alien features a humanoid body with articulating joints. It’s cool, but this anthropomorphic Alien reminds me of a Star Wars battle droid.

POP! Alien Video Game 8-bit Action Figure is Pixel-tastic

Back in the ’90s, a video game based on the Alien movie franchise was launched, and it was cool. Notably, the Xenomorph character was pixelated like many games of that era. The game is sort of a cult classic, and to celebrate its fandom, Entertainment Earth has an exclusive pixel-art Xenomorph action figure.

The toy is a blocky 8-bit Funko POP! action figure that is black in the middle and has blue and orange shading on the sides. It stands 3 3/4-inches tall and is packaged in a window display box. The action figure is available now for $13.99.

It almost looks like a Xenomorph LEGO kit. In fact, it sort of makes me want to build a Xenomorph out of LEGO right now.
