    Completely forgot I'd pre-ordered a copy and it showed up in the post on Monday. Read through it that night and Jesus Christ, what an absolutely fantastic book. To Prometheus what The Book of Alien is to Alien. Absolutely loved a lot of the artwork in it. The Deacon design is growing on me immensely and I loved seeing all those other designs.

    I do feel a little cheated in that I know there's so much more out done but hopefully the internet will prevail. I'll do a proper review on it soon enough.  :) Actually very excited and happy with a release for once, feel motivated lol

    Finally got time to check my book.
    It's pretty coolbut i'ma bit disapointed.
    You see no art leading to the prometheus as we know it.
    Almost no Engineers concept art, some pics of the prop suit, but no actual artwook of the research they made for their look.
    Nothing also about the inner suit the surviving engineer wears save for those horrid 3d images by Steve Messing...
    Also nothing from the ideas and concepts leading to the deacon.
    Well i guss i will have to hunt down each concept artist blog and website to get somejuicy stuff...

    Im considering pre-ordering it. 186 Pages. Should be a good viewing.

    Still don't see why people take every opportunity to slam this film.

    Has anyone watched alien recently? There are a lot of flaws with Alien. But we choose to believe. And thus, sci fi and fantasy is born.

    I believe I ordered mine roughly one month ago so that could explain the difference in delivery dates. I can't see any reason why you won't have it by the end of the week :) It's a great read. What struck me most was the image of the deacon heading towards the (now) derelict. You're left with the impression it has the intelligence to fly the ship.

    Yes, it always bothered me how David & Shaw end up going to another Juggernaught, giving the impression the downed ship, even though it remained in one piece was now totally useless, especially when you see what the Prometheus ship was capable of.  But having seen these pictures of the baby xeno, you do get left wondering 'what if David leads Shaw to another ship on purpose!'  'What if the reason he never questions Shaw after he discovers she's pregnant is because he anticpates what she'll do because she's human!' leaving the creature free to do whatever, even fly a ship at some point, so why not leave it a ship that he really knew was still functional!!  To be honest, as much as I enjoyed Prometheus as a piece of entertainment, what with Sir Riddles sounding like he's making things up as he goes along and the redicilousness of the plot of Prometheus which at times insults ALL the previous Alien films, I can really see this happening.

    I think that the original idea for Fifield's transformation was way more interesting, dramatic and grotesque.

    It's a missed effect for sure, he looked like he was turning into a Drone-ish thing, rather than some sort of primal, zombie.

    Just in case there is any doubt as to whether the Giger art of the 'alien hands' clasped around an 'alien egg' is Prometheus canon, check the following ampule room mural comparison shot:

    A point of note worth mentioning here is that the 'alien hands' clasped around the egg have the distinctive webbed six fingers of the familiar xeno. But the proto-goblin-alien thing at the end of Prometheus appears to only have 5 fingers?

    Oh man! I'm having such a geeky nerd moment right now! Feeling like a little kid on x-mas day!  ;D

    I honestly find the name 'Trilobite' for the tentacled thing to be downright hilarious. Seriously?  Trilobite? Did they grab a paleontology book and just... pick up the first name that sounded cool to them?
  9. Cvalda
    That mural is definitely the same. We were all saying those were Alien hands back in March when the trailer debuted.

    And f**k "trilobite"--we shall call it the STARBEAST per ShadowPred's suggestion. 8)

    We finally have a name for the starfish... 'Trilobite'.

    Not 100% sure if that's a definite match, but certainly looks like it... If it's the same thing, it's in-movie that these things shouldn't be counted as part of the Alien's history. More like an 'Alien Resurrection'-like genetic off-shoot (if they're even related).

    Thank you, Giger! ;D

    Mechanisms that look precisely like teeth? Yeahhh...
    Not to mention having a fissure like that kind of defeats the purpose of a suit of protecting what is inside. Why should even a 'front-end' that connects like that to the breathing hose, which is what makes the guy breathe?
  13. NGR01
    Where do you see  mouth and teeths in that final design?
    Nowhere. The '79 Jockey had them.

    Thats what i tought you were aiming at :)
    Well my take on this is simple.
    You can already see big differences between the fuctionnal helmet and the one of the severed head.
    The functionnal has more "flesh", the severed is dried, more skeletal, its dead.
    The one from ALIEN is dead too, what you call a mouth is the front end of helmet that connects with the hose, the teeth could be the mechanisms inside that can be seen once the helmet is dead.
    I guess this is what Scott goes for and i don't see it retconning design wise the one from ALIEN ;)
