Amateur Aliens Xenomorph stasis/containment tube made from recycled elements.

So I bought this little critter and wanted a way to display him, so I made this simple stasis tube, it's not screen accurate and very amateur I know, but I like to recycle/ repurpose items when I can. I was partly inspired by the neca stasis tubes.

The clear part is just the plastic container from some tea, the base and top are 2x2 lids from those stuck together, the tubes on the sides are 2 wooden skewers sprayed silver,

The very top part is a porta filter from an old broken coffee machine, and the red bits on top of that (to disguise some screw heads) are just clear Lego parts, there to simulate warning lights if the critter manages to break the containment!

I aim to make a better one sometime, as I'm not quite happy with this one, namely because I used gorilla glue and when that dries it is very visible, and not clear, unlike other brands.

--It's not quite finished as I'd like to add a Weyland Yutani sticker if I can make one, either for the top or the base, or both, at the front, plus I would like to try and create the effect that the clear section has cracked, if anyone here has suggestions on how to create that illusion I'd be very grateful.

The tubes on the sides, (wooden skewers) ,attached by "gorilla glue", have actually (very easily) been knocked off while moving it, anyone know of a stronger glue I can use to repair it?
thanks : )
