I’ve been so completely obsessed with the "structural perfection" of the hand-made Lego Alien (completed kit shown above) from the Tinyminds Etsy Store that I ordered for Miles’ 11th birthday, that I downloaded Bricksmith Virtual Lego Editor , re-created the creature, and designed some cool instructions for for it this morning.

Unboxing the kit from the Tinyminds Etsy Store. (Yes, I ordered one for myself as well.) It really kind of blew my mind that there could be a huge category of custom Lego kits. There are actually other Alien designs available, but this tiny Alien is perfection. I also purchased an astounding Predator kit for Rachel. (Emily also makes Dr. Who, Adventure Time, Star Wars, The Hobbit and Kitty Cat Kits)
