  • You jerk. There was a complicated system that I was going to use for this part that integrated the crown horns into the upper jaw using the same tube, but I decided against that thinking it looked fine the way it was. Now I feel bad.

Xenomorph Rex

This is based on this artwork: nebezial.deviantart.com/art/xenomorph-rex-314480080?q=gal... by nebezial

I made this for a collaboration for Brickfair. If your are in the DC/Virginia region come see this at Brickfair tomorrow. It's cooler in person.
I don't make building instructions. Please don't ask.

I loved the artwork and simply had to build it. It is my largest creation yet. The anatomy is off by a bit but I was in a rush to finish so I couldn't redo too many sections. I might come back and rework it later in the year.

    If they had this as part of the Kenners Alien Vs Predator line... Anybody else excited by the thought?

    You are the greatest LEGO Technic builder I have ever seen. First the Halo fig and now this. You are genius.

    ... You are an artist.
    Question: How do you even begin to conceptualize these builds? Do you start with a frame?

  9. retinence 32 months ago | reply

    I build the smallest detail first, which is in most cases the head, then size everything from there. For the frame, I focus on joint locations before anything else. Then build the smallest and strongest frame possible focusing the strength where it needs to be, in this case the hips.

    screw that troll who added that note, it's absolutely flawless! I like what that part does for the model.

    He's a friend. He knew about the flaw because I was talking to him about it. My reply was more sarcastic than anything.

    How tall does this piece stand?

    (Judging by some HF mecha I've been making recently (which stand approximately as tall as a TF Deluxe figure) I'd imagine this piece is about 10" tall.)

    That's about right.
