Celebrating 40 Years of ALIEN in LEGO [Pics]

Just got this awesome Alien Lego creation from artist Ochre Jelly, and since today is Alien Day, I just had to share it with you guys!

Ridley Scott’s sci-fi horror classic ALIEN was first seen by audiences 40 years ago today (May 25th, 1979). Ironically, the world premiere of the movie was at the SIFF film festival in my adopted hometown of Seattle (a festival that I am also attending at the moment). So how could I *not* recreate this movie in LEGO!

Over the years there have been plenty of LEGO recreations of the various creatures, vehicles and sets from Alien franchise. But for this build I decided to focus on the genre-changing moment when Kane peers into the alien egg! From that point on, screen sci-fi would never be the same again…
