Kong from the 2005 remake.  He's just a little bit too smart to be a dumb animal, so I gave him the Augmented subtype.

Improved Grab (Ex): If Kong successfully hits with his Slam attack he may immediately make a Grapple Check as a Free Action without provoking an attack of opportunity. Unlike the normal Improved Grapple ability he may use this on creatures up to 1 Size class larger than himself.

Deadly Grapple (Ex): If Kong may successfully keep an opponent pinned in a Grapple for 3 consecutive rounds it must make a DC 41 Fortitude Save or die (Save DC is Strength based).

Throw Opponent (Ex): Kong may pick up and throw his opponent to the ground in a sort of bodyslam. If he succeeds in a successful Grapple check he may pick his opponent up and hurl them to the ground doing 2d6+26 damage. The opponent is considered Prone ater this attack.

Throw Rock (Ex):
Kong may throw Rocks as a Huge Giant (see Monster Manual page 118).

Slam Ground (Ex): As a full round action Kong may slam the ground with both fists creating a shockwave that radiates out in a 180' radius from Kong. Opponents must make an opposed Balance check vs an attack roll by Kong, or fall prone. Structures within this area take 1d6+13 plus the structure's Hardness (maximum of +5) damage.

Arm Sweep (Ex): As a Full Round action Kong may make a large sweeping blow with his arm and hit every creature in a 180 degree arc (i.e. that's in front of him or on either side) with his slam attack. he may use the Awesome Blow Feat in conjunction with this.

Skills: Megaprimatus have a +8 Racial Bonus on Climb and Jump checks. They also have a +4 Racial Bonus on Balance and Tumble checks.

Combat: Kong is an excellent tactician, the veteran of lifelong fights.   He's best at Grappling so he uses it first, but has no problem adapting when necessary.

The Golem of Prague is a large roughly hewn statue whose artistic style is somewhat alien.  Inscribed upon it is "Judah Loew, Prague, 15xx" with the last two digits un-readable.  On it's robe in Hebrew is the following:

    "Power bringeth destruction; beware, lest it be unleashed."

    "He who will find the secret of my life at his feet, him will I serve until beyond time.
    "He who shall evoke me in the 17th century, beware, for I cannot by fire be destroyed.
    "He who shall evoke me in the 18th century, beware, for I cannot by fire or by water be destroyed.
    "He who evokes me in the 19th century, beware, for I cannot by fire or by water or by force be destroyed.
    "He who in the 20th century shall dare evoke me, beware, for neither by fire, nor water, nor force, nor anything by man created can I be destroyed.
    "He who in the 21st century evokes me must be of God's hand himself because on this earth the person of man existeth no more."

Hidden in a small compartment at the Golem's right foot is a scroll with the word 'emet' (truth) written on it.  Placing it in the Golem's mouth brings it to life as your servitor, and it will serve until your death at which point it wonders the world aimlessly, or goes back into hiding as a statue awaiting a new century, and greater invulnerability.  The Golem truly wants to be awoken in the 21st century when it will be virtually impossible to destroy.  Nor does it seem entirely bound to be inanimate as it murders several people, but only when no one is looking.  It wants to be thought of as a statue until it is only vulnerable to divine intervention.  It always returns to it's pedestal after being ordered on a mission to avoid suspicion.  The Golem appears to understand most languages but is incapable of speaking.

Improved Grab (Ex): The Golem may make a Grapple Check against a being of any Size Class without provoking an Attack of Opportunity.

Constrict (Ex): The Golem does 6d6+30 damage with a successful Grapple Check.

Unstoppable (Ex): The Golems attacks are considered Adamantine for purposes of ignoring Damage Reduction, and they ignore Hardness.

Invulnerability (Ex): As the spell to awaken the Golem is cast it becomes increasingly harder to destroy.  If awakened in the 17th century it is immune to Fire damage unless it comes from a divine source (i.e. anyone with a Divine Rank or a Major Artifact created by one).

If awakened in the 18th century it similarly becomes immune to Acid and Cold damage.

If awakened in the 19th century it similarly becomes immune to physical and Force damage.

If awakened in the 20th century it similarly becomes immune to any weapon or item created by mortals (in other words magic items or even nuclear weapons).

If awakened in the 21st century the Golem is immune to all damage that does not have a divine origin.  An artifact or Divine rank is required to harm it.

Statue (Ex): The Golem can remain perfectly still for as long as it wants.  Unless someone knows what it is they are incapable of telling it from the average statue.

Obeyance: Whoever finds the scroll hidden in the Golems foot and places it in it's mouth becomes it's Master.  The Golem must obey his orders, though it usually finds a way to twist those orders to bring it's master misfortune (and it will not obey orders to leave).  The Golem will serve until his death before going on a rampage temporarily and then fleeing to await being found again in a later age so it can gain ever more power.

Combat: The Golem kills in secret.  Anyone alone in a room with it is at risk, as it may murder you if it senses you are a problem for it's master or a threat to it.  Preferably it will be done in a way that doesn't imply the statue did it, such as strangulation or the use of an improvised weapon so as to avoid blood getting on the statue.  Once revealed the Golem simply becomes a slowly walking engine of destruction, quietly beating to death anything in it's path.

Xenomorph Drone

 Xenomorph Drone is an Acquired Template that can be applied to any corporeal Aberration, Animal, Dragon, Giant, Humanoid, Magical Beast, Monstrous Humanoid, Outsider, or Vermin whose Size is no smaller than Small and no larger than Large.  While it is implied there are different prototypes of Xenomorph, this one specifically infects prey species no smaller than Small, and no larger than Large.  The Xenomorph described here is the one from the first Alien film (usually called a Drone).  The Facehugger design doesn't really allow for too much size variation, hence the size limitation for the Template.   It's also possible they were specifically designed to wipe out humans and maybe even the Yautja, so it's why they can parasitize us. 

Size and Type: While it is generally larger than the species it has used as a host, the Xenomorph retains the same Size Category.  Type changes to Aberration.  Actual size varies, but Xenomorphs created by infecting humans average 7 ft. tall and weigh 120 to 140 kilograms.

Hit Dice: Unchanged unless Hit Dice are less than d8's.  In such case raise them to d8's, and recalculate hp.  Xenomorphs gain maximum hp per Hit Die.  Xenomorphs have a minimum of 6 Hit Dice, if the base creature is not at least 6 HD, raise it to 6 HD.

Speed: All Movement modes increase by +10 ft. 

Armor Class: The base creature's Natural Armor Bonus increases by +8.

Attacks: Retains all natural weapons of the base creature.  In addition it gains a Tail Attack doing Piercing damage if it doesn't have one. 

Damage: The Tail attack does 1d6 for Small Xenomorphs, 1d8 for Medium Xenomorphs, and 2d6 for Large Xenomorphs.  Otherwise damage remains unchanged.

Special Attacks: Loses all Class Abilities of the base creature.  It also loses any Racial Abilities that aren't Exceptional, but it gains the following:

Pharyngeal Jaws (Ex): If a Drone pins it's opponent while grappling and maintains the pin for 3 consecutive rounds, the opponent must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + Hit Dice + Dexterity Modifier) at the end of the third round or die. A creature with no discernible anatomy is immune to this effect of the ability.  Opponents with no discernible anatomy (and regular opponents who make the Save) take 3d6 points of piercing damage instead.

Improved Grab (Ex): Drones do not provoke an attack of opportunity when they make a touch attack to start a grapple. You also gain a +4 bonus on all grapple checks, regardless of whether you started the grapple.

Acid Defense (Ex): The Xenomorphs do not appear to have blood as we understand it, as their body chemistry is fluorine based.  They do have a network of vessels or something similar under their exoskeleton, however.  Upon being punctured it releases a highly concentrated acid.  When attacked successfully it sprays acid.  If an opponent successfully damages it in melee it must make a Reflex Saving Throw (Save DC is Con based) or take 3d6 Acid damage for 1d6 rounds.  Weapons used must likewise make a Save (magical weapons gain their Enhancement Bonus to the Saving Throw) or be destroyed unless the weapon is somehow proof against acid or does acid damage itself.  If destroyed in an Area Effect, anything within the Xenomorphs square or adjacent to it must make a Saving Throw.  Once it is dead the acidity of the corpse rapidly fades, and can be handled safely within 1 Minute.   If the Drone is attacked at range a random creature adjacent to it must make the Save to avoid damage.  If an attack has some sort of ability that causes the Xenomorph to bleed continuously, anything moving adjacent to it during the duration of it's bleeding must make a Save.

Special Qualities: Loses all Class Abilities of the base creature.  It also loses any Racial Abilities that aren't Exceptional, but it gains the following:

Blindsight (Ex):  A Xenomorph Drone can detect other beings within 30 ft of itself.  It is not known by which process it can perform this.  It Possibly mimics sight in some form because it can distinguish between humans, xenomorphs, androids, and Yautja.  It can also distinguish which humans have been infected with chestbursters.  Presumably, unlike normal, this functions within a vacuum.  The Alien Queen has also been demonstrated to sabotage equipment and have her minions cut power supplies, so either they can use it to read, or they have some sort of rudimentary ability to sense electricity or other forms of energy as well.

Resin (Ex): Xenomorphs can produce a sticky resin which they use to build their hives, and to trap live prey, attaching it to walls or hanging it from the ceiling above their eggs.  Resin has a Hardness of 7 and 10 hit points per inch of thickness.  Cocooning an opponent in resin takes 1 full Minute if it's Small or Medium, 5 Minutes if it's Large.

Alien Hive Mind (Ex): Xenomorphs have some sort of rudimentary hive mind, and are rumored to be telepathic, a suggestion which is backed up by the Ripley Clone having an empathic link to the hive.  Xenomorphs can tell when one of their own has been harmed or killed within one mile.  They also seem to have a relatively short range ability to communicate with each other, which I will define as Telepathy with a 30 ft. range.  This telepathy works for their species only, though it is suggested perhaps in Aliens3 that insane individuals can perhaps receive their communications as well (or perhaps Golic is just deep into hallucinatory psychosis).  Xenomorphs have also been shown to have some sort of genetic memory transfer, meaning that whatever one of them knows will be passed on to it's descendants.

Hold Breath (Ex): A Drone can hold its breath for a number of rounds equal to 8 × its Constitution score before it risks drowning (or suffocating in the case of vacuum).

Wall-walker (Ex):  A Xenomorph can climb sheer surfaces as though with a spider climb spell.  They have even been seeing crawling along ceilings.  Unlike normal it can move at it's full land speed, and may even use the Run action.

Confined Spaces (Ex): Xenomorphs ignore the speed reduction for hampered movement when moving in a narrow space (an area smaller than but at least one-half of their space) or a low space (an area shorter than but at least one-half of their height). They also retain their Dexterity bonus to your Armor Class. If the space is both narrow and low, their function as if only one of those conditions applied.

Immunities (Ex): Xenomorphs are immune to acid damage, as well as poison, Mind-Affecting Effects and nonlethal damage.  They are also immune to the following conditions, but only so long as they aren't cause by supernatural or magic means: Dazed, Disabled, Nauseated, Sickened, or Stunned.

Thermal Invisibility (Ex): The body temperature of a xenomorph perfectly matches that of the ambient temperature, making it invisible to detection via the infrared spectrum or other heat based sensors.

Energy Resistance (Ex): Xenomorphs have Energy Resistance 10 to Fire and Cold damage.

Vulnerability (Ex): Xenomorphs have been shown to be vulnerable to exothermic shock.  If subjected to an attack that does at least 12 points of fire damage (before their Energy Resistance is subtracted), then immediately (within a round) subjected to an attack doing at least 12 points of cold damage they must make a DC 25 Fortitude Save or die.  If the Save is successful they still take 3d6 damage as their exoskeleton shatters.  When they shatter, other creatures in their square or adjacent squares have to make a Reflex Saving Throw (Save DC is Con based) or take 3d6 Acid damage for 1d6 rounds.

Saves: Xenomorphs have all good Saves, and their Saving Throws must be recalculated.

Abilities: +8 Str, +8 Dex, +8 Con, +4 Wis.  Intelligence becomes a 2 if the base creatures Int is 2 or less, 3 if it 3 or higher.  Charisma resets to 11 regardless of what the base creatures was.

Skills: Skills are completely redone.  New class skills are Balance, Climb, Hide, Intimidate, Jump, Listen, Move Silently, Search, Spot, Survival and Swim.  Xenomorphs gain a +6 Racial Bonus on Hide and Move Silently Checks.  The Hide Bonus increases to +12 within their hive or in mechanical environments.  They also gain a +8 Racial Bonus on Climb Checks, and may always Take 10 on a Climb Check. Xenomorphs do not take a penalty to skill points for having a negative Intelligence modifier.

Feats: Feats may be rechosen.  If Hit Dice increase new Feats may be chosen based on the new Hit Dice.

Environment: Any.

Organization: Solitary, Pack (3-6), Hive (11-20 plus Queen), Major Infestation (30-100 plus Queen)

Challenge Rating: +2, minimum CR is 6

Treasure: None

Alignment: Always Neutral

Advancement: Xenomorphs advance by increasing in Racial Hit Dice.

Level Adjustment: N/A.  Xenomorphs are not PC's.

Spit (Ex): Some Xenomorphs (it varies with host species) can spit a slightly less potent version of their acid as a Ranged attack.  It has a Range Increment of 30 ft., with a maximum range of 60 ft.  Damage is 2d6 for 1d4 rounds, and opponents can make a Reflex Save (Save DC is Con based) for half damage.  opponents who fail the Save by 5 or more are permanently blinded.

Lobstermen vaguely resemble 4 armed anthropoid lobsters.  Enhanced with various internal cybernetics they seem to be a nearly indestructible force of nature.  Beyond their huge claws, they often wield one or more weapons known for their destructive power, and are a foe most X-Com personnel genuinely wish to never encounter.

Multi-arm Fighting (Ex): The Lobsterman's smaller arms can wield ranged or melee weapons, and can attack with both without penalty as a Standard Action.

Fortified (Ex): Lobsterman armor is legendarily thick.  When a critical hit or sneak attack is scored on the Lobsterman, there is a 75% chance that the critical hit or sneak attack is negated and damage is instead rolled normally.

Nigh Invulnerable (Ex): If using the D20 Modern rules, there is a generic energy type referred to as "Energy" that Energy Resistance doesn't work against.  Lobstermen have Energy Resistance 10 against even this form of attack.

Vulnerability (Ex): Lobstermen take +1 point of damage per die against cold attacks.  for example an attack doing 2d4 normally, would do 2d4+2.

Skills: Lobstermen gain a +8 Racial Bonus on Swim Checks, and may always Take 10 on a Swim Check.

Combat: If Unarmed the Lobstermen immediately close for melee to begin ripping their opponent apart with their claws.  Otherwise they open up with their guns and soften opponents up while trying to figure out how to safely attain melee range.

The xenomorph vulnerability needs some damage treshold, or else people will blow them up with cantrips. - or give him fire resistance that fails retroactively if he is rapidly cooled - say he resists 15 fire damage a turn for 4 rounds and then gets dumped into water - he gets those 60 damage immediately.

Wouldn't the other mother be fay?

As for monster ideas... do we have scarab swarms in any bestiary?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OSkC2Pjj-pE

The Mummy movie also had magical scarabs that transform into jewels and burrow through flesh towards vital organs if you pick them up.

Will fix Xeno

Other Mother seemed sort of Lovecraftian, so I went with outsider

The Draconomicon, Sandstorm and Fiend Folio all have Scarab swarms

I remember a scarab item similar to that from 2E, I don't know if it was ported over to 3e or not
