  1. its better than what we got for sure, but that ain't sayin much.I hate the design as much as the concept itself.
    I cant understand what some fans finds so appealing about space mutants in an ALIEN franchise.
    Isn't it already established that the xeno (and it's lifecycle) is ever evolving. That advancement requires some form of mutation at at genetic level... so I defo see it all part of the same universe where you'd see xeno's and other such mutations.
  2. Yeah!

    We Alien fans like our interspecies rape uninterrupted by new ideas or creatures! The very thought of adding to the universe makes our blood boil! A man midway through a transformation is just an utterly ludicrous thing that is entirely unacceptable!

    Was this suppose to be an extra creature in the same action scene with the Mohawk mutant, both fighting the security team? That would have been sweet.


    :( :( so beautiful

  4. Holy shit @ the very first scan from the article. 9 Engineers? Seriously?

    Look at the cliff under the spacecract in the background...

    Im starting to believe that this is just some fraternity initiation gone wrong.

    He is in his undies, he is drinking some strange liquid... and everyone is watching probably laughing.


    Chug!  Chug!  Chug!


    The more I see this, the more it looks like Star Wars ...

  7. Its a deleted scene from Alien, although that pic was taken before they added the dome over the head. If you want to see the scene (with the dome) its right here:

    creepy!


    Indeed it is. While I think the crab walking looks a bit funny, I absolutely love the part where the tail extends, and the Alien standing up is great as well.

    Also, great pics of Fifield! Very cool (and creepy) stuff. I wonder just how different this take of the scene was...

  9. As much as I thought I would prefer the more alien-like Fifield, I can definitely see why Scott may have cut it.  The notion that human beings can be transformed into xenomorphs opens a huge can of worms that I'm sure would be analyzed down to the very last logistical error.  It would also add a huge layer of complexity to the existing mythology.  I think he wanted the message to be "the back goo will f*ck you up" rather than "the black goo will turn you into a xenomorph."

    So this is from the cut of the film we never got to see but for the glimpse we have in the trailer.

    Looks to me like we should be seeing this in the Extended Edition. Also note is that while his head is extending backwards his skull, face remains in place under a new translucent like skin. Almost like the original Alien with it's prominent human skull under a transparent dome.

    Who says its Fifield?
  11. This scene where Fifield is killing his mates is happening when Weyland want go to the Engineer, and not during his awakening from the hibernation, holy theatrical cut, i can't wait for the extended cut.

    In the trailers Janek said: "Kill everything! Do you copy me!?"
    This isn't in the movie, i wonder what's the "everything" is meaning.

    And in the aduio puzzle, the Fifield-Millburn vs Hammerpede scene creepier, i hope we will got that in the extended cut.
  12. So alien Fiffield has sex with the Deacon which is a girl queen and creates.

    AAAAAAAAAALIEN!!!!!


    Can I ask where this comes from? Only ever seen the smooth dome Alien for the original film.

    Its a test shot from alien. they took the dome off for some reason.


    It would have been perfect if Fifield face looked like this.

    You said real life deformity, I was trying to find a nice way to tell you that you were wrong. Sorry dude.

    Lets go back to the tapes!

    THIS is a good example of how the design of the Fifield creature was based on real life deformities.

    You'll note the absence of any reference to Rubber Johnny as being 'real'. The character in the music video was based on real life deformities. Obviously so were the Fifield monster concept. (And the Ripleys 1-7 in Resurrection.) As they all share the same features (and have been well documented in their inspirations.)

    I wish people wouldn't be so hasty in their rushing to judgement and ravenously tripping over their own posts in order to try to prove someone else wrong. Especially when they are so obviously NOT looking for the answers they claim to seek,  enlightenment or intelligent conversation.


      Does it bother you that I think xeno hybrid designs come from xeno hybrid concept art based on artists interpretation of what a xeno hybrid looks like... from the Alien series?

      I wouldnt cite a still from a batman movie displaying martial arts skill as being an example of real life skills for example. In the same logic, I wouldnt cite a monster from a short filem displaying a mutation as being a real life example of deformity. Ill make a note and do my very very best to never correct you about something ever again sir. I wouldnt want you to be upset or look foolish.

     Once again. My apollogies.

  15. Looks too Gollum-y for my taste, at least from those pictures.  Maybe if he turned his head I'd change my mind.  Still better than the one we saw in the film. :D


    I agree although I think he is starting to look like the little grean martians out of Mars Attacks especially with those eyes....


    I was thinking he looks a lot like Rubber Johnny.

    Dorian Gray! Great comparison.

    THIS is a good example of how the design of the Fifield creature was based on real life deformities. No extraterrestrial tampering needed.

  17. Other than 'crouching' and being generally greyish in color and ghoulish in nature ... I'd say he looks nothing like Gollum.


    Gollums magic was in his performance. His design wasn't much more than a big eyed, emaciated Peter Lorre. The Fifield creature on display here has potential. We'll see how his character is portrayed soon enough.
    Come to think of it, this Fifield design does kind of look like Peter Jackson's Gollum too.  I was thinking the iconic Gollum form the animated movies, especially the eyes, but it looks like a mix of the two ironically enough.  A dark ghoulish mix.  Still, I would've liked to see this Gollum'ish Fifield in action - it's hard to judge from a couple halfway drawn concept pieces.
  18. While I do agree that this is scarier, it also looks like a lot of CGI wizardry would have to go into this version of Fifield to make it work on screen.  He is definitely more Gollum-ish here.  I'd prefer what we got in the actual movie if this version moved in a way that was slightly more awkward and cartoony due to the constraints of CGI.

    Remember guys, this is just a picture...
