Here's some of the stuff being done for the 35th anniversary of (released in 1979).
35 years later, fans are still “screaming” in space as Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products celebrates the 35th anniversary of the groundbreaking film ALIEN, one of the most enduring sci-fi horror franchises of all time, with multiple iconic partners for exclusive branded merchandise available worldwide.
National Entertainment Collectibles Association (NECA), an entertainment conglomerate and global leader in licensed consumer goods, in association with Fox Consumer Products, announces today the first-ever action figures of Lieutenant Ellen Ripley that feature the likeness of actress Sigourney Weaver, who was nominated for an Oscar® and Golden Globe® for …

Hello everybody. So Alien: Isolation is coming out soon and I think it is going to be a very cool game. The reason I made this blog was to ask you what you think about the new game and the last one, Aliens: Colonial Marines. So here are some questions you can answer if you'd like:
- Is Amanda Ripley-McClaren a good choice as the main character?
- Is one alien a good idea?
- Do you think this game will be scary?
- Did you like Aliens: Colonial marines?
- From what we know about the story, do you think it's a good idea?
- Will you buy this game when it comes out?
- Is there anything you really hope this game will include?
So if you want you can answer these questions and share your thoughts on this upcoming game!Read more >
I finished reading Alien: Out of the Shadows last night, so here's my thoughts on it.
If I'm honest, I was pretty disappointed. It was certainly written well enough, yet the story didn't really do anything for me. It seemed to want to copy the mystery of by having this huge underground extraterrestrial spacecraft loaded with Eggs, but it just came off as a cheap copy of what we get in the first film. The new characters Lebbon introduced were also pretty bland. Hoop was the only one who was developed even slightly, the rest just faded into obscurity and as a result I found it difficult to care when they died.
But by far the biggest problem I had was with the stupid inclusion of Ripley. Why was she in the book at all? Her presence added nothing …Read more >
So I was going to do a Pulse Rifle first, but ended up doing this first because it's less expensive. Right now I'm still trying to locate some parts, and I'll probably end up using resin replicas for a few (like the Kango 246 and the Matchbox transformer). Using this and this as guides. I'd be nice if I could incorporate some electronics too, but that would probably be a bit too hard (and expensive) for me. I'm looking to spend under 250$. Gathering all the parts is probably going to take forever :(.
- SL85 Panel (rare and costs around $150 :O)
- T28 Calculation Panel (waiting to be back in stock)
- Kango 246 ("meh" to find, but expensive)
- Hama slide viewer (if it's a B101, I think I've found one, but have no idea how I'm supposed to but it) …
I have some troubles with the disposition of planets mentioned in the Colonial Marines Technical Manual.
So far, I know there's four arms in the colonized space: Core systems, American arm, Chinese arm and Anglo-Japanese arm, and this is the list I have:
Aurora 510 (Alpha Centaury A V), Nene 246 (52 Tau Ceti II), Lucien-Avril (Lacaille 8760 IV)
American and Chinese arm:
Helene 215 (82 Eridani II), Tientsin (Eta Boötis A III), Surier 430 (Delta Pavonis IV), Thetis (20 Reticuli) [Thedus?] and Solomons (Alpha Caeli V b-h).
Georgia 525 (70 Ophiuchi A V) and Bernice 378 (Mu Herculis A III).
There's no mention of which arm Linna 349 is located, but at some point, the manual states that in Neusheune, a location of Linna …Read more >

With the reveal of announcement trailer for Alien: Isolation many questions the ultimate fate and level of contents Amanda's survival tale will provide. Youtube comments on the game's trailer have all been Aliens: Colonial Marines rant and illogical comparison between the minute and the half trailer and the poor received Alien/Aliens game of the past. I myself have faith and trust in Creative Assembly, being that they are one of U.K.'s most superb game developing studio. Only time will tell if Isolation will stand or fall. What are your opinions.

It contains some scenes not in the film, like one where David tells Shaw how to pilot the Juggernaut they use to fly to the Engineers' home world at the end of the film. Note: I think that below it's mentioned that it wasn't the one who did that or something.

Right, as promised, here's the first little teaser from my ongoing novelisation of . Here we're introduced to Major Thomas Van Zandt before the mission begins (and, predictably, goes very wrong). This guy is basically the reason I decided to add a sequence aboard the Marlow at the beginning of the story, I really liked him in the game but he had almost no screen-time. This way I got to enlarge his character slightly. Anyway, here's a few short paragraphs for you to read if you're interested!
- Major Van Zandt entered
through the door at the end of the long room, clad in his combat
gear and holding a flamethrower by its carry handle in his left

This is basically an idea for another real-time strategy game for aliens vs predator. (You could call it a sequel for aliens vs predator: extinction if you wanted, but hey! This is a FAN made idea, so don't take it seriously.)
The game could take place across the whole galaxy, involving Earth, Acheron, Fury 161, and many other planets. Maybe even proteus(the rumoured planet of xenomorph origin) or a predator game preserve. Each faction need to collect resources unique to each one to create units, build structures or use special abilities unique to them. There could be a maximum population capacity, but you could increase it by building a certain structures over control points. To actually do any of these things, you would need a command uni…

I haven't done any writing for years, but I've always wanted to do an AVP story and to ease myself back into it I figured I'd try and write a novelisation of the video game from 2010. The idea started a few weeks ago, mostly as a bit of fun, but now that I've started I'm actually finding it really interesting.
I've never done a novelisation before, and I've never written anything from the perspective of a non-human before. But when I replayed the game recently I thought there was actually a fairly good story contained within it, even if it is presented quite badly in the game. I also really liked the characters (although again, they weren't always presented terribly well in the game). I certainly love the idea of fleshing things out, as no…Read more >

I recently caught Alien vs. Predator on TV for the first time since it was released way back in 2004, and despite not liking it when I first saw it, I thought I'd give it another go. After all, I remembered it having some pretty good elements in it. I figured I might as well give it another watch and see if it was as much of a let down as I remembered.
It wasn't. It was worse.
The biggest problem I had was with the characters and their dialogue. They were terrible. The only vaguely interesting character in the entire film was Weyland, and it felt like he was only interesting because he was Weyland. Every single person in the movie was total a cliché, but unlike Aliens, they weren't fun, well-written, witty, interesting clichés, they were just shal…Read more >
I have wondered if the Predators are actually honorable. They hunt sentient beings for sport with advanced weaponry while spreading Xenomorphs all over the galaxy. I'm not so sure these hunters are as honorable as we believe them to be. UltraSWG (talk) (Contribs) 08:13, October 25, 2013 (UTC)Read more >
I thought, that if the Predators and Xenomorph influenced Cambodia, Egypt and South America, there must be some Aztec or Mayan art of the Xenomorph. (Let's worry about Egypt and Cambodia later) Its been done in colour and a modern graphic Mayan art style but I love it. Let me know what you guys think.
Here's some Predator Stone Carvings of South America. (Said they're hieroglyphics on the site but, I guess their not.)Read more >

So I noticed that the game "AvP 2010" has begun to die slowly over the years and the release of GTA V and Colonial Marines isn't helping (don't take this the wrong way I love GTA V but A:CM was garbage no offense) even though A:CM was released 8 months ago it is slowly dilipidating as well (maybe even worse than AvP 2010) it is a great game and there is only 3 or 4 Friendly lobbies a day and sometimes only one Ranked lobby or none! So this game needs more players on consoles (I play PS3 where these issues are even worse) I remember the days where Ranked lobbies wouldn't take 10-20 minutes to get into and lobbies would have servers every day plus there would be these 16 player battles. But what happened to all that? So if you have this game…Read more >

In the films and games there are some aliens which are far more intelligent then the others(grid,specimen 6 and the lead alien in resurrection). I think that they are the best candidates to be the next queen.think about it. 6 did the queens bidding and was smart enough to survive long enough to become a queen. Grid was intelligent enough to kill two predators,avoid plasma caster fire and free the queen. I think that on each 'brood' of xenomorphs there may be some that are smarter than others and in the event of a queen dying are the most likely candidates to be the next queen or praetorian. It's just a theory but I'd like to hear your options or theories below.Read more >
Yep, there are several "alien" characters in Grand Theft Auto V that bear a distinct resemblance to the Xenomorph!
First came across them when involved in a car chase through a film studio — several actors dressed as green aliens with elongated skulls jumped out of the way as I tore between the stages.
A later mission had me smoking some pretty potent pot and hallucinating that similar aliens were trying to abduct me (forcing me to mow them all down with a minigun).
EDIT: The comments below got a bit sidetracked into general GTA V discussion, so I thought I'd point out for those that might be worried — it's all spoiler-free!Read more >
Super7 is going to be making five figures supposedly based on actual 1979 Kenner prototypes that never saw production. The figures are designed to be reminiscent of vintage figures, with pretty much the same articulation similar packaging and even the copyright info in the same place as the vintage Kenner Star Wars figures.
"In 1979, prototypes for 3 ¾” action figures for the ALIEN film were developed but never manufactured. Through our network of industry and collector contacts, Super7 has unearthed reference material and original 34-year-old prototypes and will now make these “lost toys” a reality.

Again kinda late on this one :(is getting released in Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D on December 16th 2013. Predator 3D will be available in either the "headless" Blu-ray 3d for $49.99 or the $129.99 Limited Edition which also includes a head bust of the Jungle Hunter with a removable Bio-Mask. Both versions of Predator 3D will also include hours of bonus material.
Also at the Comic-Con booth you were able to get your face scanned which would then be made into a figure of the Jungle Hunter holding your decapitated head, although you would have to pick a preset hair style and color. The figure was only available if you purchased the Predator Blu-ray 3D.

The Alien Diaries (German transcription with an English translation) describes Giger's work in the studios and includes drawings, Polaroids showing the monster coming to life, and several still shots from the plentiful film material that Giger took in Shepperton.
Also the HR Giger Museum Facebook page claims that the book is a limited edition of only 660, but since there are 660 pages in the book (according to here) that might not be true.
More info can be found here
You can also buy the book on Amazon
I really would like to have this book, but for 130 dollars I think I'll pass :( I also really like the cover design depicting the Alien.

Hey guys. This blog is about future Alien, Predator, and Prometheus movies that may or may not be coming out and my thoughts about them.
Paradise is supposed to come out in 2015 and be the sequel to Prometheus. I am honestly excited about this film because I want to see what they'll do to tie it in with Alien... IF they're tieing it in with Alien. It will probably feature Elizabeth Shaw and David, as well as the deacon and maybe some engineers. I hope it's good...
I am REALLY excited about this film. It is most likely coming out but right now it's all just rumors. Remember I'm gonna try to send in my script soon and see if they'll make it... Aliens Vs. Predator 3: Ascension would be amazing on the big screen...

What Aliens needs is a new take and get more people talking. I mean to the people who have yet to hear or watch the frist two Alien movies. As this year drawing to a close where will the next Alien title take place? Hicks could be played as the major role in the upcoming sequels. Will Fox continue on in the wagon in the next coming storm?
Why start at the depressing angle? Looks like Fox did try and bring back fans with the sudden comeback of Corporal Dwayne Hicks. Most love it and most hate it. Why is that? I love seeing him back!

Hey guys. So I decided to make my fan-fiction into a bunch of seperate books, kinda like a comic book, but only one picture. I'm currently working on book #2. This is how it will go down:
Book #1: Introduction- Chapter 2
Tim and Maria find out Tm's dad died; Spike is born and grows up.
Book #2: Chapter 3- Chapter 5
Spike and Hunter break out; the infestation starts in Jungle's Edge
Book #3: Chapter 6- Chapter 8
Possibly Book #4: Unknown
They aren't official books, they're just pages I wrote on with pen and stapled together. But I typed out and printed all of Book #1, and I LOVE IT!!!

I thought on serveral occasions wouldn't it be cool to see a Predator fight something out of time.
I've read people suggest Nazi's and dinosaurs like raptors and a T-rex.
But wouldn't be cool to see the Predator take out a Holy Knight that would awsome, an honour fulled battle!
Or maybe ninjas two stealth nuts going at it.
Maybe seeing a Predator take out a unit of redcoats.
A Predator blowing up a pirate ship.

This page is about what people think about how the boiler came to be, I don't want anyone insulting anyone or putting down their idea's, or posting off-topic comments, feel free to post what you think I should add to the poll.

Lately I've been thinking about flying Xenomorph. So far it's either been crappy fan art, good fan art or the Kenner Flying Queen. I've done some research into the Alien Dragon, which gestated in a giant bat, and if it had matured to a Queen I think it would have looked like number 1, because it looks very similar to a bat crossed with a Xenomorph. Also, the bat only has a thumb on its wings and fingers with the membrane, which also leads to no 1 being the best, and hey theyre Xenomorph they can have wings and 4 arms if they want. Personally I think the dragon alien is pretty cool. So I want to know what you guys think about these flying queens.

I've Been wondering What the Carrier & Ravager would actually look like? Carrier: 15'+ John 'Zero' Smith thinks it should have a head similar to the Cornigus Head for the Lurker.

Other than that I think they should look Pretty similar to how they were in Alien versus Predator: Extinction only more Xenomorph Black. Will add more Ideas soon. Until Then.Read more >
Hello out there. I just got done reading the comic series Aliens/Predator: The Deadliest of the Species. I read through all of them, except #8, which I don't know if I forgot it or what. These are my thoughts and questions about the series, I hope I get some answers.
I'd rate the story a 6 or 7 outta 10. It was kinda confusing for me... I couldn't tell when Caryn was dreaming or when it was real... if it was one of TOY's "scenarios" or not... who's alive and who's dead... so it's pretty confusing. And if you ask me, it could've used some more alien and less predator. I like the idea of a girl predator, but they didn't make it look like a girl. It just looked like one of your classic predators. The human/predator alliance was kinda c…

After the disappointment of Aliens: Colonial Marines, will anyone even attempt to make a new Alien game?? I believe the next game to feature the Xenomorph species will not solely be an Alien one but will feature Predators too. You see, in the end of the last Alien vs. Predator game in 2010, the ending in the Marine story (spoiler) showed Karl Bishop Weyland, current head of the Weyland-Yutani company and a descendant of Michael Weyland recieving the location of Xenomorph homeworld which is otherwise known as Xenomorph Prime in other media. So the Marine ending hints a possible invasion of the homeworld while the Predator ending shows Dark who is the main protagonist in the Predator storyline of the game putting in the co-ordinates to Xenom…Read more >
