It had been 24 hours since anyone had seen Corporal Simon Spaceman. Tensions were running high at the Outer Reach Research base. Charlie and Sam set out to sweep the area for their missing colleague. Charlie's foot stood on something; the trap opened.. and then there were two.
About this creation
Why is it the guy with the gun always pulling up the rear?
I can't keep up with you, David. I commented on the dino before I even knew this was done. Well, you had to do a spider MOC, huh? Blech! The devil beasts. Very well done, as always. The eyes are perfect, really captures the evil nature of these horrible creatures. Somehow, your monsters are intelligent enough to always hit the one without the gun;)
Quoting LEGO DOUGHNUT
wow!!!!! at first i thought this was your entry to the doughnut contest and that it was shelob (i forgot you had already entered:P.)
Still its just wow.
I did consider shelob for the contest, but baulked at a spider build. There are so many excellent spiders on MOCpages that it terrified me as a prospect. I decided to finally give it a go here, even though I knew it was going to have to be a complete brick build, and my supply of black pieces being limited would make it extra tough. The trap door spider allowed me a few compromises and an exciting entrance for the monster. All in all, not my favourite build by a long shot, but the spacemen had to face a beastie which isn't red in colour sometime.
Poor poor Charlie, but someone had to go. My daughter insisted that the spider was friendly; it was hard breaking the bad news to her. Charlie has now gone to a better place - my daughter's pink creator Lego set.
