    The lv 223 engineer is merged with his suit, you can tell mostly around the neck (mostly). I took it as showing the evolution of the engineers from organic life to biomechanics. Maybe they became "corrupted" when they began merging themselves with technology.
    Completely agree. They are bio-mechanical by the end of the movie.

    I like the design of the engineer. I just wish they hadn't given it britches. That's a human thing. We have shame.

    I'd have much preferred they filmed in Terminator style and just had him be fully nude when he took the robe off. Why? Alien God's don't suffer shame.

    It just looks kinda silly, and too... I don't know. It makes them look too familiar somehow.

    ... Also noticed that the Engineer in the film's intro who sacrifices himself in order to create life is also dressed in nothing but robes, similar to the description of "Jesus" type thing. The vessel was also more "flying saucer" style, which is a common report in ancient history on earth and "contact". So0o perhaps the vessels and Engineers we see on this particular planet were truly the soldiers of the race, unlike the intro's Engineer? Kind of like the death/life theory? What y'all think?

    But remember they had the alien statue/wall design in the chamber. It was clearly "black" like the alien we know, with the big head, a torso and arms stretched out...

    So i think the alien was around already - i mean - what was chasing them? what was the green goo on the visual ship log controls? It was alien goo!  :D

    No the alien in the end is a weopnized version of the alien we all know the alien we all know is it's own spe IRS but the jockeys wanted to control it so they made the goo so it could create the deacon at the end of Prometheus

    I'm wondering why everybody calls proto-xenomorph on the end of the film, 'couse we saw befor a diorama or something like that in the ship...so they (the Engineers know about Aliens before). I think The egg-think was the first type bioweapon - what we saw in Alien, and in Prometheus it is Alien 2.0 - which is the more agressive weapon, the black thing.

    ooooh i like this theory! the saucer type spaceship at the beginning of the movie didn't seem biomechanical at all.
    their technology obviously evolved in the almost 200.000 years, or whatever, since they created mankind

    I just noticed that this Engie is wearing the same underwear as Shaw.
    Is this supposed to be one of them deep thoughtful things that are supposed to mean something or just the director liking the look of the thing?

    Maybe other theories have covered this, but has there been any  mention of there being different factions of "Engineers?"  It looks like there are two kinds, one that we see at the beginning of the film which is unclothed, pinker in color, and somewhat less malicious looking. Also its ship (assuming it came from that ship) doesn't look like a sleek battleship. Maybe this was a faction of Engineers that believed in the power of creation, while the other Engineers we see on LV-223 are more focused on destruction?

    Or it could be the engineer at the beginning was just less technologically advanced and its race hadn't merged itself with biological technologies. 

    Yeah a couple mates and I have gone over the faction thingie in a religious light. It's conceivable, seeing as Scott said the whole result of Alien was a "crashed bomber in a war" in the first place.

    I like this. It makes sense for there to be more than one group of engineers. Something goes sour between them, cue a "war in heaven". That's always how i thought of the jockies pre-prometheus.

    I always LOL at the THEORY of evolution and its use on TV and in film.
    The only way anyone can make it work is to put it a science-fiction environment.
    The operable word here being, 'fiction'.

    0/10, try harder next time.

    Nah. Black eyes make him tip too close to Nosferatu with a gym membership.

    Glad they stayed away from the Doctor Manhattan shade of blue as well. Because the last thing we heard him say was something about going off into the cosmos to create some life.

    I'm still 50/50 about the Engineer. Kinda would have preferred this:

    Pitch black eyes FTW.

    I agree - black eyes for the win. That and considering the rest of its body is in a sort of purified physical-function state, it would make sense the eyes would be physical-functional pure too, as in it is just one large hypersensitive pupil that goes above and beyond the typical eye in terms of reconstructing a visual image. That and it just looks a lot better - and makes the vibe and their purpose more ominous.

    Anyways - totally agree.

    How come this guy isn't biomechanical like the engineer on LV-223?

    Wait what? You... don't believe in evolution? ???
