No, Alien stats here. I haven't figured how many faces could a facehugger if a facehug could hug faces. But I should. I have found these nifty little bugger to add to any Beanie Baby collection. ThinkGeek has this lovely Alien Facehugger Plush toy. What baby wouldn't want this in their crib?
It would make an excellent and cheap Halloween costume though.
One note on the Alien lifecycle, the facehugger seems to be one of the most pointless evolutionary steps in film. An Alien queen lays eggs... yes, I'm 100% on board. But in those eggs, what should be little tiny baby aliens are, in fact, a completely different alien. The Alien queen lays eggs, the eggs hatch then these different aliens lay eggs inside meat filled sacks (people), which then incubate into full grown aliens. This is like a human giving birth to a monkey that is born pregnant with a baby human. Great for movie magic and story telling, but a little strange for actual reproduction.
