Someone should convert the images into an animated gif.

Suitably scary.

Two minutes with M$ Paint and free online gif-a-fier. Just think if some real software, say, with ability to fade, in the hands of real talent...  lol

Are there going to be re-casts of these sculpts? I'd be seriously interested.  8)

Rykar Jove the original sculptor decided to re-work some of these

Here is a reminder of the original metal casts




First he looked at the Facehugger leaping out of the egg metal casts and decided the legs and tail needed thickening a touch




He then re-worked another Facehugger separating the tail from the egg and resculpting the tail in a different pose



A third Facehugger was detached from its egg and re-worked as a stand alone Facehugger this time with the proboscis withdrawn



Finally he sculpted a 4th Facehugger crawling down one of the eggs



Here is a group photo

Not for sale yet

The original metal castings sold out awhile ago

The revised sculpts will go to a caster sometime in the near future but only to be cast in RESIN as the original metal castings were a little problematic with the legs

Finally got round to painting the Parasitic Eggs

Here are painted versions of the metal casts from the initial sculpts







Painted versions of the reworked masters that were cast in resin







Both sets of Parasites and Eggs together
