The Jockey itself is regarded as a marvel of the movie; a nigh unparalleled sight in the series. Giger himself was humble when describing it, saying: “I modeled it myself, in clay. It was then cast in polyester. I worked particularly on the head, and I painted it. To make the pieces of skin, I put on some latex and then scrubbed it off. Then painted some more. If we had more days, we could have made it better — but I think for the film it’s okay.”

The article goes on to mention that The Pilot prop was destroyed in a fire by vandals back in 1979.  I’m refusing to process that fact at the moment and I’m sure I’ll go on and on about this at a later date.
