And a xenomorph on a hamster wheel

Much as his visions of Dune never saw the silver screen, H.R. Giger's Batmobile never graced Batman Forever. Which might be just as well; Batman is already creepy enough.

H.R. Giger was also contacted to design a Batmobile for Batman Forever. His unique "X" shaped design was to include articulated front legs/mandibles, retractable fins, and gatling gun emplacements on each of the four pods on the sides of the vehicle. The design also combined side and forward intake ports with organinic spines and a central pod connecting the four legs.

Flea-readers pining for an X-shaped automobile chittering down the boulevard may find some small comfort with an H.R. Giger train-set.

It is the fascination with teeth that puts it over the edge for me.

As for the finding of things... The Flea is basically an index for my ongoing research into a few fairly specific things. In this case, my second album which is dedicated to H.R. Giger.
