Alternate model from from the pieces in LEGO set 4994 - Fierce Creatures
About this creation
February 13, 2010
The theme for the models made from the instructions for LEGO® set 4994 "Fierce Creatures" are all scary, spikey, pointy, venomous creatures. There is a spider, a snake and some sort of insect. For this alternate model, I wanted to incorporate as many of those scary features as possible. I also wanted to make my model as large as possible as well.
This particular bug has stingers and teeth all over the place. The eyes are up on top of the head to afford as much visibility as possible for this creature.
Insects have six legs, and so does this bug, so it must be an insect. I like the look of the damselfly's "tail", so I included one in this model.

Hi Dave, Great! This is a scary bug indeed. It fits perfectly well into the 4994 range. Would it be possible to add a LDD file?
Thanks for the kind words. Sorry, I do not have an LDD file. You'll have to do your best to replicate this from the available photos...but I'm not sure why you would want to, because if you are successful, it will scare you silly!
What a great alternate again! I was wondering the other day if you were building more alternates... I especially like the topview, which shows the wing configuration perfectly. Very creative and good looking! And the frontview gives me the creeps... :-P
