The Alien Clinger is a small, hollow, lime green creature with a hole in its bottom slightly larger than a minifigure's head, so it can be placed onto one. The creature's mouth is represented by another hole, this time on the front of the body, through which minifigures can see through. It has one eyestalk, on which it has a single printed eye. The six tentacles on its lower half can be used to hold it steady when placed on a flat surface, giving it a skittering appearance.
The Alien Clingers, (or "Pluuvian Brain Beasts") are used by the alien invaders of Earth as special forces to control Earthlings' minds.
