Face off against 13 reptile/human hybrids from sci-fi films and TV

"Dinoplasty" is the unique theme for this week's episode of Syfy's Face Off (tonight at 10/9C), and as the name implies, contestants will have to use their skills to transform a human into a dinosaur hybrid.

Despite a lack of dino-people, creatures that look reptilian and human are nothing new. To get in the mood for tonight's episode, here 13 classic cases of other sci-fi movie and TV species who resemble bipedal lizardmen.
