Robot invaders that start off as rock/eggs and then use tentacles to build bodies out of parts and maybe humans parts too and the “egg is head” with green visor eye. I remember a dude and a girl using a machine gun in open space to get away from the ship explosion.

  • Hi, welcome to SF&F. Is this a TV show or a movie? Live-action or animated? They were using the recoil from the gun as an improvised rocket?

  • It’s a movie, think B rated also. They were using the gun for thrust kinda like a rocket. Commented Nov 4, 2023 at 2:56

This reminds me of Moontrap, a 1988 movie about space robots, there are tentacles and parts (human and otherwise) seen and mentioned in the trailer. Not sure about green visor eye (trailer shows red one), but rest does match.

  • You are amazing! That’s the movie! And yep, looks like I was wrong on the eye color, been almost 25 years since I last seen it. Thanks! Commented Nov 4, 2023 at 3:14
