Try Not To Cringe With This Ultra-Realistic LEGO Facehugger MOC

LEGO Facehugger

There are some things that keep you awake at night – and I guess there’s another one that I will add up to my list. What you’re about to see is not a still photo from the next film from the classic sci-fi Alien franchise, but an ultra-realistic MOC that was spawned by the creative mind of LEGO builder mordatre. I have to say that if there are such things as brick-built nightmares, this is LEGO Facehugger MOC is the stuff that it’s made of. It can easily pass as a good Halloween prank if seen from afar. I love this shot where it seems to come alive as it ‘crawls’ up the stairs.

The Bionicle parts used to build the facehugger was really spot on and helped create a highly articulate and posable model of the vicious parasite. The choice of color for the exoskeleton was also very reminiscent of the alien facehugger as it is seen in the alien cult classic.

The attention to detail that mordatre gave to this terrying brick-creation is simply awesome. Even up-close, his creation still evokes some sort of a primal response that will make you want to torch the little bugger right away. The clever use of Technic and Bionicle parts in this build gives it a very intricate and organic look.

I’m pretty sure if mordatre can figure away on how to motorize this MOC, then I will definitely have second thoughts before coming close to brick-built LEGO Facehugger MOC. Thanks to Brothers Brick for the heads-up.
