Had this built for a few good years now. I was so impressed with myself when I got it completed, and was thankful for having adequate pieces to make it look fairly accurate.
As many might know, I am obsessed with The War of the Worlds by HG Wells. And I also love the Half-life series deeply, so when they include Alien Tripedal enemies, I loved it even more and couldn't resist making one out of Lego.
In time, It will need some updating. I would like to give it proper joints in its legs sometime just for pose-ability sake. But its simplicity is endearing to me.
