Pardon me for asking, but does this...erm....thing have a name? It looks quite interesting.Sending you a virtual hug.
It's a Facehugger - one stage in the life-cycle of the Xenomorph from the Alien movies. Here's a plush version, which will probably give you a better (but hopefully nightmare-free) idea of how they work. And, yes, Firstborn owns the plush version. He also once built a very convincing version of the wee beasty using his Trio blocks. I haven't gotten him the plush Chestburster (which is what hatches out of you after the Facehugger has done its work) yet, but his birthday's in June, so...
Is it me, or does the face-hugger's mouth look a bit ... umm... inappropriate?
That's fairly true to the H. R. Giger source material. (Link NSFW.)
I was actually wondering the same thing, Mike, but as I'm ignorant of all things...alienish...didn't want to seem juvenile. I wasn't so much having nightmarish thoughts as I was thinking that it seemed quite fitting for it to be, shall we say, reproductive.
DMa, Are you implying I have no problems appearing juvinile? I'll have you know..... that you're absolutely right :D
