The nickname has everything to do with size,..with modern technology though that nickname will be one of the past.I don't get the nickname but i hope to get one of these aliens soon.
I know 20cm is the largest available at the moment but i scaled it up to around 27-28 cm
Personally i think this is a more pleasing size. i know the price will be reflected in the size increase.
Hopefully shapeways will do a 20% discout at xmas, they usually do.
