Aliens always seem to want to meet the leader. What happens when they do? In countless movies/films it means doom. This Lego MOC of a United States Capital Building Alien Invasion is created by Lame Boy. It is a great example of taking an existing Lego set (in this case the United States Capitol Building 21030) and upgrading it into something that is your own. A few well placed giant Lego flames create the expected destruction. And, the invading alien ships are the retro saucer kind. Held up with some flexible tubing. A couple smoke clouds finish the mod, and a bit of image editing skills help to hide their supports. The end result would fit right in with any B movie special effects production.
Babu Yoda is the biggest (hah!) thing to come out of Star Wars in the last few years. There are so many ways to build a Lego figure of this adorable alien. This Baby Yoda is a Lego MOC created by car_mp. This brick built figure has a few options for display. The ears, mouth, fingers, and arms can be moved. This means you can pose him however you want. Baby Yoda can even hold some delicious soup. This version has a rounder face than some other creations. It makes him look a bit more cartoonish, and a bit more cute. The child also comes with a nice tan robe. The lighter tan Lego pieces give the clothes some welcome detail, especially in the collar.
There are so many Lego Baby Yoda builds out there, and each one is special in its own way. It is always interesting to see how designers approach the same subject matter in unique ways. This Lego MOC is called “The Child” and is created by NS Brick Designs. This little Yoda is built using SNOT techniques. Especially noticeable in the robes. The work done around the collar and the end at the bottom. A few of the great details here include the 1×1 green clips for hands, and the 1×2 jumper plate for a mouth. For display, the scattering of olive Lego plants around the scene gives a good impression of an alien planet with out actually building one. In the end, another great Baby Yoda!
Stitch is the adorable alien, who just happens to extremely dangerous. This Lego Stitch created by Legohaulic has been updated to reflect both personalities. Compared to the previous build (check it out here) the newer model has been considerably redesigned. The “earth dog” version now has a bigger head, more SNOT building techniques, better fur, and bigger ears. The biggest change is that the model now supports the full “alien” version. With two extra arms, a bunch of extra antennae, and new pupils for the eyes. Lego Stitch stands at seven inches tall, and has thirteen different points of articulation. This new build is up on Lego Ideas (the previous model achieved over 10,000 votes!) so go vote for it if you want to see an official release!
This Lego Invader Zim build is created by MadLEGOman. It is based off the animated show from 2001 to 2002. A very short lived cartoon that ended up having a huge influence on popular culture. Appearing in comic books, action figures, clothes, video games, and even in theme park rides. The story of an alien secretly living among humans as they research how to conquer the world resonated with a lot of people. This Lego MOC features Zim, and his robot servant Gir. Created as an entry into the Iron Builders challenge, the goal of which is to use as many Lego hammers and wrenches in a build as possible. You can find a bunch here, Zim’s antennae, his fingers, and the text of the flaming sign. Can you find all 22 wrenches and 10 hammers? A great detail for this build is the tiny Earth being crushed. A great Lego sphere, that even has oceans and continents.
There are a bunch of ways to make a Baby Yoda out of Lego. This cute Baby Yoda is built by Hamid and based on the design by legotruman. This version is based on the Brickheadz style. This one is a little bit bigger than the official scale. A sort of deluxe Brickheadz. The extra width gives more space to pack in as much cuteness as possible. The overall shape has a good flow, with an excellent use of SNOT design techniques. Some of the nice details include the green overhanging pieces on the ears, the tiny amount of green showing on the arms, and the super smooth collar design. The eyes give the Lego figure a lot of personality. In the end, you just want to boop Baby Yoda on the nose.
The Alien Xenomorph is an iconic figure in science fiction. Instantly recognizable, and yet it can blend in and hide almost anywhere on a spaceship. Their standard variants of Egg, Chestburster, Facehugger, and Queen are all terrifying. There is also an interesting feature to them. The Xenomorph can be born with some of the aspects of their hosts. The Dragon Alien (dog), Newborn (human clone), Predalien (Predator), Deacon (Engineer), and the Neomorph (spores). This Lego MOC is the creation of _Zenn, and is called the Prowl Xenomorph. It was created for the Space Jame 2018 as an Extraterrestrial Entry. It captures all the details expected of a Lego Xenomorph. Check out the black Lego hands used for the tail, and the Lego arms hidden inside the chest.
“Chapter 2: The Child” is the creation of @ctr_bricks, and is the continuation of their Lego Mandalorian MOC series. This newest Star Wars theme has been extremely popular for builders, and has created a lot of great MOC content. This scene features an appearance from “The Child” also known as Baby Yoda. Here is a very simple and very effective Minifigure scale build. The famous Yoda ears are made of two green lego hands. The scene also features a new custom Mandalorian, four Jawas, and an Alien friend. The star of this build is the Sand Crawler. A very definitive vehicle that has been built on a relatively small scale here. The forced perspective is spot on and really helps make this thing look more imposing then it actually is.
The M577 APC, or Armored Personnel Carrier is the perfect vehicle to take to battle against Aliens. This Lego MOC has all the features including Turret, RE700 Rotary Canon, and DSGR Smart Missiles. There is even room for a small Minifigure crew. Nothing can stop this APC, it is explosion and bullet proof, and can roll over all sorts of terrain. Just make sure not to spill acid around it. This vehicle is the creation of Rick Brickham, and is made up of about 750 pieces.
Experiment 626, more commonly known as Stitch has been let loose. By far one of the cutest laboratory experiments, even though he was designed to destroy populated areas. Stitch has been officially classified extremely dangerous. The good news is that he met Lilo in Hawaii, where a series of adventures taught him to ignore all his programming. Resulting in Stitch becoming one of the most enduring characters. This Lego Stitch MOC is created by Legohaulic. Who has spent months carefully refining this design. The figure is just about 7 inches tall, and has 13 points of articulation. Meaning that Stitch can be posed doing almost anything you can image. He also has a collection of costumes, from Halloween to Experiment 626 (where he grows 2 more arms, and antennae).
Lego Stitch is up on Lego Ideas, so make sure to vote for it if you want Lego to make this into an official set.
