"In space no one can hear you scream." That's right! I built one of my favorite props from one of my favorite movies: the Space Jockey from Ridley Scott's 1979 science-fiction-horror movie "Alien." If you haven't seen the movie, I urge you to watch it. Alone. At midnight. With the lights off. Seriously though it's a fantastic movie. I hope you all like and enjoy this build! And as always, never stop building!
About this creation
Normally when I build something, I build it in stints. So for my cars and some of my science fiction stuff, on average it takes me 2-4 hours to build each MOC. For some of my miscellaneous and other science fiction builds it sometimes can take me a day or two to finish each MOC, and the longest time it has taken me to finish a MOC (before this pain in the @## of a build) was roughly a week. This Space Jockey, one of my biggest science fiction builds to date, however, took me over two long weeks to finish. Now I know that some people usually have builds that take them longer to finish, and two weeks for them is no big deal. But for me it was. I almost even gave up several times too. But in the end it was my love for the design that the late H.R. Giger used (and my obsession of the movie "Alien") that helped me finish this tough build. Below is one of three pictures that I used as sort of a guideline to help me build the Space Jockey. Thank you for viewing this MOC!















What's an Alien build without a Xenomorph?

I never commented on this?? Man i miss a lot of cool builds when i'm not around.. This is awesome! Looks very accurate, and i really like that Xeno you built as an extra too :-) @ Toa Nik: Well, if you check out Giger's stuff you'll find out that you might not be entirely wrong with that observation :-D

This looks awesome! But it kinda looks like the thing in between a male's legs imo. :P

Quoting Kermunklin the Giant Evil House Head Well I must say...you totally nailed it. It's not easy to make LEGO look organic, but you certainly did! Looking forward to seeing Prometheus 2 or Alien negative-three or whatever they're calling the next one...
Thank you very much! And yes I too am looking forward to "Alien: Covenant," which is what they are calling the Prometheus sequel.

Quoting Stephan Niehoff A very good work, and certainly very time consuming
Thanks!

Quoting Henrik Jensen I remember seeing this movie in the largest Cinema in Copenhagen back in 1980. One of the best Sci-fi thrillers ever. Your Lego interpretation of the this scene is really great, and so is your Alien monster.
Thanks!

Quoting Oliver Becker One of my favorite SF- movies! So your MOC is very well done to celebrate this iconic motion picture and tectonic shift, Geoffrey! :)
Thank you very much!!

Quoting Reaper . This is brilliantly built, and a phenomenal re-creation of an iconic element of the movie
Thanks! Whenever I watch the movie, I always pay the most attention during this scene. I've always enjoyed the mystery that surrounded this "thing" (although thanks to Prometheus the mystery isn't there anymore).

Quoting killswitch95 [SNRK] I cant give this thing more than 5/5, and that makes me sad...
Thanks!
