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!

I've had this idea rolling around inside my thick skull for a few years now, and finally got around to making it. I wanted an item to use for display that contained several samples of Xeno DNA for transport to a W-Y lab. It started with glass vials with screw on lids. I made some glue based slime with 4 parts sickly yellow and 2 parts of some nasty green I found, then modified/detailed some PVC caps to fit the vials (yay for having my own machine lathe). Then I had to design and build a case to fit it all, featuring a back lit, labeled panel.

Anyway, here it is…

Each vial has a label with the information filled in by hand.

Here is what the backdrop panel looks like.

The vials were purchased at a local craft store and the case was originally a poker chip case, which I disassembled and repurposed, replacing the siding with some 1/8" ABS that I used to use to make armor back when I was a mando and gave a crap about star wars. The "glass" (including the backdrop piece) are some plexi I've had had laying around for a couple years.

This is excellent, I can totally see "Ash' using something like this during the events in the first movie having gotten some from the dead facehugger.
