No spoilers other than things get crazy at about the 2:40 mark! Awesome work by the team that constructed this. Very, very impressive and one of the coolest Lego projects I have ever seen.
I wasn’t even aware of the Alien movie when it came out in 1979 (being 5 or 6 years old at the time), but I distinctly remember seeing this action figure in a store in Moses Lake, WA (the mid-sized town I lived in until fifth grade). In retrospect it’s pretty hilarious that Kenner would market a toy based on an R rate movie to kids, but it’s a great collectors item now. In fact, it looks like they’re going for a couple hundred on ebay these days.
Saw this design on a t-shirt and had to print it out. Really looking forward to Tron Legacy. And now that I think about it, I should probably introduce my kids to Tron.
