UFO ALIEN (RED)

LEGO UFO was a Space theme that ran from 1996 to 1998, between Exploriens and Insectoids. UFO was the first LEGO Space theme to introduce non-human looking alien minifigures. The back-story pitted the UFO Aliens and their droids against the Exploriens, the Insectoids and Roboforce.

There were six minifigures in the UFO line-up including two variants of the red UFO Alien. This particular minifigure appeared in four UFO themed sets.

UFO ALIEN (RED)(SP046)

LEGO UFO Alien (Red) MinifigureLike the UFO droids, this red UFO Alien shares a cybernetic style marked by a swathe of high-tech detail from head to toe. He comes with unique, custom-moulded, black shoulder armour that is quite broad and appears layered. His light-grey helmet has a printed ‘brain’ design, electrical controls, and moulded breathing apparatus. The head is trans-orange with pale-green, black and yellow detailing.

He comes with a front printed light-grey-base torso, black hips and hands, red-base legs and arms. The torso and legs are printed with a range of silver, black and red cybernetic details.

Good

This is an awesome minifigure. The printing is incredibly fine and no ink (or design time) has been spared. The custom-moulded armour and helmet is vividly detailed and gives the figure an appropriately dark and menacing appearance. The helmet printing alone outdoes many LEGO minifigures!

Bad

It just wouldn’t be nice to find any faults with this guy…and I’d be afraid of a UFO minifigure revolt if I did!
