I’ve been so completely obsessed with the “structural perfection” of the hand-made Lego Alien (completed kit shown above) from the Tinyminds Etsy Store that I ordered for Miles’ 11th birthday, that I downloaded Bricksmith Virtual Lego Editor, re-created the creature, and designed some cool instructions for for it this morning. (File under “Things you do when you are home alone and procrastinating”)
Unboxing the kit from the Tinyminds Etsy Store. Yes, I bought one for me, too. It really kind of blew my mind that there could be a category of custom Lego kits. There are actually other designs available, but this Alien is perfection. I also purchased an astounding Predator kit for Lars. (Emily also makes Dr. Who, Adventure Time, Star Wars, The Hobbit and Kitty Cat Kits)
Here are the instructions I designed, followed by some isometric view studies. Click on the image to see a gallery of details.
