Picture of Lego Dead Space
I present to you some dead space-y mini figures! I have no life and love me some dead space. Enjoy and please vote for me!

What you'll need:
Legos
Lego figure(s)
Paint (I used acrylic, it went on smooth but dried rough so I'm sure there's a better paint to use for it, I'm just not that knowledgable of paints. If there is please share in comments)
Possibly a soldering iron

Step 1: Choosing A Mini figure

Easy enough. Just about any should do fine but I find Star Wars mini figures work best since they already have a sci-fi look about them and most come with a helmet. Usually you can also get multiple figures in a building set for pretty cheap.

There are some other sci-fi types out there, my favorite was part of series 11 I think. It's the one with the bulky shoulders.

Step 2: Detailing

Sorry I don't have any pics for a small part of the actual process for this one, but I don't have any more figures I can use. It's pretty simple anyways so it's not like you need a step by step picture-based process.

First, decide if you want a helmet or not. If you do then you should get a pocket knife (I used a razor knife for finer areas) and scrape off the paint that's already there (if needed, on one of them I used a sharpie since the helmet was black) use the pictures above as a reference on how to hold the knife so you don't take out chunks, yes you hold it so you drag it across instead of cutting into the face of the material. Then paint in the lines for the vizor look, use any color you want!

Now for the RIG. Paint/sharpie a thick black line part way down the back to do an outline. Then use the same color you used on the vizor just inside the black line you made prior and put thin black lines across. If you feel really artistic, you can paint up a stasis module!
