The LEGO Alien Book Stand by Shannon Ocean is Accurate and Creepy

LEGO artist and Sci-Fi aficionado Shannon Ocean created a LEGO Alien book stand in anticipation of the upcoming film Prometheus.

Ocean originally wanted to create a model that had the face of the Space Jockey (a character present in both Prometheus and Alien) for one half and the Alien for the other. This endeavor did not pan out as hoped so Shannon settled for having two alien faces instead.

The model is eerily accurate and displays two characteristics that fans of the Alien saga will notice. First is the iconic mouth-tongue that makes the Alien such a deadly foe, and second is the use of transparent LEGO pieces to create the impression of drooling. The LEGO Alien book stand would be an excellent way to keep one's favorite science fiction novels neatly in place.
