“That’s it man, game over man, game over!”
This has got to be one of the most unsettling LEGO creations we’ve seen yet. Carlos Valero, a Spanish LEGO enthusiast who goes by the name AL13N163NA on DeviantART, used nearly 500 bricks to create this awesome 1:1 scale replica of a Facehugger from the Alien film series.
Now we’re wondering if Carlos has plans to make a LEGO Chestburster next…

More old fanart and one relatively new I also did for /co/.
The Laws of Robotics
1. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey the orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.
As written by Isaac Asimov. The rules appear many times in his books, but in the plot of one of his short stories, the rules are used to distinguish a man from a robot. Someone obeying all three laws could either be a robot, or just a really good person.
And you thought I only liked giant robots.
I recommend Asimov’s short stories first. I made the mistake of starting with the Foundation Trilogy, which takes awhile to get going.
The three laws are flawed though!
