Japanese Twitter user turns Disney icons into a LEGO Alien

A Japanese LEGO fan has taken the parts from a Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse set and turned them into a slavering xenomorph.

A LEGO fan has taken to Twitter to demonstrate how they have taken Mickey and Minnie Mouse, icons of the none-more-wholesome Disney Corporation, and turned them into a terrifying, acid-dripping killing machine. The Japanese user, who goes by the Twitter handle, @LEGOdouMoko, posted a tweet with a set of four images. First the 43179 Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse box, then the parts being emptied out, a build underway and finally, a remarkably accurate depiction of the most unsociable life form in the universe.  

It’s not the first time a MOC (My Own Creation) has been made of the creature, which first appeared in the 1979 Ridley Scott film, making a star of relative unknown, Sigourney Weaver, in the process. Well known LEGO creators, the Arvo Brothers, have published details on how to make a detailed, 51cm tall model, but they do have a reputation for using hard-to-find elements. Moko, on the other hand, appears to have just used parts that are available in the Mickey and Minnie set. 

If you fancy giving the transformation a go yourself, then 43179 Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse is still available, retailing at £159.99. Be aware though – as far as we know, Moko hasn’t published any instructions on how they built the alien, so if you do try it, you’re on your own.
