Custom Lego ALIENS Power Loader

Special Guest Star Blog Appearance!

My thirteen year old nephew Aaron asked me to post this for him on my blog. Frankly I'm a little scared of him; you know how these kids are today. They'll cut you if you don't do what they want! So in the interest of my health, here's Special Guest Star Aaron and his blog post.

Aaron's big into Lego this month, and in addition to amassing hundreds of official sets, he recently began dabbling in making his own custom figures. Here he's made a genuine customized Ripley in Power Loader from the movie ALIENS.

Pretty impressive! And I'm not just saying that because he's forcing me to type it while sticking a shank in my side.

Here's a side view of the Power Loader, with a better view of Ripley. He constructed this from various spare Lego parts he had lying around the house.

Custom Ripley figure with happy "Petting Jones the cat" face.
In addition to the impressive Power Loader, he also cobbled together a custom Sigourney Weaver as Ripley figure.

The hair in particular is spot on. I have no idea where he found a hair piece like that.

Custom Ripley figure with "Get away from her you BITCH!" face.
Just like many official Lego figures, she comes with an extra face so she can properly express her emotions.

Again, pretty impressive. But now let's see you make a customized Alien Queen for Ripley to fight, Mr. Smarty Pants Teenager!
