Remember the Aliens Arcade Game from 1990? It throws all kinds of crazy things your way, including this guy, the Chestburster Mutant. A human mutant/zombie thing that had the hatchling come out of its back and attack you. Crazy stuff. My goal was to pay homage to the game sprite, but also make it a bit more realistic looking. I took the upper body of a NECA Left 4 Dead Smoker, and the lower body of a NECA Predator Dutch. The giant back growth is an alien egg accessory from an Alien Resurrection Ripley figure, and the chestburster is from an Alien Resurrection Call figure. The egg was attached to the figure, and I cut up the shirt on the Smoker figure to fit over the egg and to look tattered. I sculpted on the head and arms to give him more growths and boils. The chestburster was repainted and can fit in the egg and be removed. It also has a bendable wire installed in it so it can bend forward inside the egg to appear as if it’s lunging at its victim. Then I painted the figure, using dry brushing to bring out the sculpt and trying to bring in elements from the game sprite, with lots of blood spatters randomly all over him. Then I just added some glossy clear coat for that wet, gross look and now the Chestburster Mutant is ready to take down anything in his way! Check the link for the "back story" I wrote to explain how the chestburster mutants come to be.

Wow, this bought back some memories, wish someone would convert that game. Excellent figure, the paints are awesome!

They're not as much fun to fight as xenomorphs, but they did add some variety to the arcade game's bestiary. Anyway, great job on converting the sprite into 3-dimensional toy form!
