Aliens bookends
"They're coming outta the walls.. They're coming outta the goddamn walls! Let's book!"
About this creation

This was my entry for my local Melbourne LUG's competition for June, which I'm pleased to say that I won-by one vote! The theme was "Bookends, design your own, any size, any theme!" and sine Prometheus was opening on June 7 I thought what a good time to get into the spirit (little did I know, HOW MUCH the movie would SUCK..) but I digress. My first idea was to have one side the Space Jockey and the other Giger's Alien, to bridge the prequel to the original movies.



The Space Jockey was too big to build in 3D so I tried for a frieze style of low relief sculpture. Unfortunately after trialling it, it looked too wide and I gave up on that section and settled for two alien heads, one open and one closed.


The heads were the easy bit-it might sound silly but I practically used up all my dark bley to get the walls high enough and anchouring the heads to the walls gave me a few headaches.




Check out the other entries; I really love the rollercoaster one:

Awesome to hold your Alien DVD collection. In fact it's probably more awesome than the movies, since 3 and 4 lower the bar considerably. Oh and those train book ends were mind-boggling.

I loved your bookends already when I just spotted the thumbnail. Excellent work, especially the end with the saliva.

Really nice work here. Some excellent part usage and a great win over some stiff competition.

Very nice alien heads, I like how you managed to get them look real without 10,000 pieces. But Prometheus, Bad?? I thought it was brilliant! Obviously the alien films are in another league (apart from avp requiem) but I thought it was a really clever film, and well thought out! Also there is space for sequel that could fit in before the first alien, so I hope they do that. Sorry for going on and on, great build, and congratulations on winning the competition :)

Congrats! These are wicked cool! While the others you showed were good, that roller coaster set was neat, yours was the only one that didn't look like it was made of Lego. These could be a great set for TLG to make if they would produce such scary things. Great job and a well deserved victory. ~cheers

They look awesome. If I had them, I wouldn't know what to do because I don't own books, but I guess they'd be cool little vigs to look at. I thought Prometheus was good. It wasn't so great, and it was a little slow, but it wasn't terrible. My only problems were the inconsistancies of technology and the last few scenes with the Jockey because he was in the wrong ship. The only thing I could think that would fix that would have been another guy waking up and finding an egg in the ship, wake up, get ready to fly it, and then pop goes the chestburster. Anyway, I'm going off topic, again, these look awesome.

This is seriously cool. Using those old, big, "useless" saucer pieces was a stroke of genius! Congrats on the win, and thanks for sharing your pictures of the other creations; you rub shoulders with some very talented builders!
