Film buffs are most likely very familiar with Alien, a science fiction horror film directed by Ridley Scott that follows the crew of the commercial space tug Nostromo.

There’s no word yet on if this model is going to be AWD to maximize grip or RWD to let professional drifters have some fun in it.

In Back to the Future, Marty McFly rocked a Gibson ES-345 electric guitar at the 1955 Enchantment Under the Sea high school dance, but this custom Time Machine bass by Doner Designs might have been more fitting. The Chicago-based father and son duo created this to pay tribute to the Michael J. Fox movie franchise, especially the time-traveling DeLorean, complete with flashing lights, a selectable destination year display and a flux capacitor.
