RIP HR Giger

He should be best remembered for his surrealistic artwork, he will be best remembered for the special effects from Alien, but when I think of HR Giger, my first thought is of his work brought to life in three dimensions and mass produced for children with nerves of steel. They were routinely banned and removed from shelves, but every kid who had one of these grew up to be a weird genius.
