The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

Based off one of the designs I found. The technic one I can control via bluetooth I will have to spend about 300 on.

I am having to do some work to color match it and am trying to work towards getting the set instructions updated and tweaked. I have to submit updated designs to alibaba and hope to get a kit together, even if the setup costs are going to get me.

I am preferring the single color unity as it makes the set piece look better, and it makes it easier to source pieces. I am a few hundred into parts sourcing on this unit. R&D costs always get me. Half the parts I can get from Lego, the other half I have to source from brick owl.

Thanks. I hope to get the plans updated and things tweaked as the current build is a little problematic if following directions.

I need to see if I can do it in all black too. Standardizing on one color scheme simplifies the build and order process. This is a few hundreed in parts over tens of orders to try and get all needed parts.
