Alien Chest-Burster LEGO Minifig Is Beautifully Ugly

By Great White Snark | November 20, 2008

Artist pirie1 knew what he was doing when he created this piece for Halloween.

There’s something really striking about this photo of an Alien bursting out of the chest of a custom LEGO figure.  The contrast of horrific violence against a normally-placid, mirthful visage.

It’s like watching Dakota Fanning beat a homeless guy.  Or seeing Barney drop the soap in a prison shower.  Or witnessing the result when Santa Claus flies his sleigh too close to a 747’s jet-intake.

Not that I’m enjoying coming up with these analogies or anything.

Thanks to Brothers Brick, via ToyBender, for the find.

      You have a wonderful way with words.

      Although, I would say it was more Terribly Awesome, than Beautifully Ugly. :)
