I had not intended to collect these at all but when I saw the set of the saucer "abducting" the farmer I simply could not resist and ended up getting most of them.
I love this MOC and it made me laugh. Its just the right combination of corny, scary, cartoon, B-grade movie, and 1950's space opera to be really cool.
The road also looks excellent...the crack is really well done.
Keen to see more.

When I saw "Family feast" in the description on the front page, I thought it meant the minifigures in the picture. That dude in the hat will be leftovers :P
Speaking of which, I noticed the minifig in the hat isn't trying to run away, but instead is waving at the alien trying to get its attention by insulting its mother or something. Either that, or he's terrified and can't move. I vote for the latter, because, well, he's a minifig.
The giant alien is pretty great, I like how well it matches its little one-piece offspring. The gaping mouth with all those teeth is pretty neat, and I got a laugh out of the little flailing arms up top. I'm going to assume that the father alien isn't in the picture because the mother ate him or something (like on that show "V").
The people are pretty fun too. The guy with the Jack Sparrow face reminds me of an opera singer or Joel McCrary from that "Princess Diaries" movie back in '01.. for some reason. Hmm.
I like the SNOT technique applied to the road, that massive crack and all the little ones just add to the feel of the scene.
In short, I love it. And now, if you excuse me, I have to go find some of those "Alien Conquest" sets at my local Target.. Or Walmart. Maybe KMart. Who knows.

I'm not a Space fan, but I have to admit that TLC has made a very great job with this Alien conquest line. I really like the design of the Alien. They are the only Alien that I like among the try of TLC.
I really like the spirit of this line, with crazy aliens who come on Earth to conquest uor planet. It's really cartoony buy the design, the colours used and the overall design.
Back in your great moc, which has all those aspect that I like in this line.
The Mother version of those tiny and non so friendly little alien looks very very great. The rounded look is very well done. And particularely in this color, in which the choice of pieces is a little limited.
The scene is very pleasant to look at and the faces used for the minifigs really capture this moment when you can't do anything before the invader!
Just imagine, you're walking down the street, wanting to be quiet at home after a hard day at work. And this big alien comes from the sky, cracking down the road (nice effect!). Grr, I would'nt be one of those poor figs. But it seems that girls had less luck in your vig!
Just a question, doesn the mother put of her children before eating us?
