AvPG Podcast #12 Goes Live

A new month is here and I’ve just uploaded the 12th and latest episode of the AvPGalaxy Podcast:

Join AvPG Staffers RidgeTop and I and community member SiL as we discuss the various Aliens/vs./Predator comics and novels. We share our favorites and we talk about the ugly ones (expect a nice section on Deadliest of Species!).

Look out for episode #13 shortly, an interview with Tim Lebbon, the author of the new Aliens novel. As always, let us know what you think of the podcast and any suggestions you might have.

    That was a really marvelpis show with all that discussion.


    Okay, about the box Alien, see part 2 of this page. http://alienexplorations.blogspot.co.uk/2009/04/j-intermediary-stage.html

    I don't know how the thing would have related to what Ridley Scott said about his idea for an intermediate stage.

    And I used to think that I had read something more about the box form of the alien but that might be a false memory unless I can eventually find something

    Similar to Dallas switching of the Jockey transmission, or Parker being volunteered to go into the airducts after the Alien (by Dallas in the script or Lambert in the comic).

    Have this on my iPod, so when I went out walking and listening to it, I spotted a 'No Exit' sign right as Hicks brought up the comic of the same name. At the exact moment.

    Hah!

    Nice chat fellas. Taking up Aaron's question, does anyone know the origin of the 'unravelling box-Alien'? I'm pretty sure I heard or read something about this years ago but can't recall the story.

    The writer and/or artist were apparently asked about this, many years ago and they swore blind that it was in the cut which was screened to them. They have no idea what happened to it, but said it was definitely in there. The trouble with verifying it is that none of the production crew ever seems to get asked about it, which has made it a kind of anomaly. Giger's never mentioned it, but many of his designs were passed onto others to construct and they could always have made it out of left-overs from stuff made earlier. His new book might have something about it.

    Wouldn't surprise me, because from what I can remember, there was meant to have been a lot of footage which had been removed for various reasons, well over the amount we've all seen. I've never even seen pictures of the famous translucent creature costume until very recently.

    Wrrvrvrvrvrm (forget how you spell their name) might've been the one to have brought this to light, but I can't say for sure. Was on the News Group and I haven't been there in a very long time.

    Either way, it should be kept in mind that Fox would have had to approve it before publishing.

    There is an interview with Ridley Scott that mentions about the alien in 'box-like' shape but was never filmed.  He wanted to have the alien seen on monitors on the bridge in which the alien is in a strange shape.  I'm sure one member said the 'box' scene was 'blocked' or something.  This is going back a while.  But for the life in me I can't find the interview.  I'll have to go through all my material.  There's also a a scene in the Illustrated story that come to my attention such as the scene in which Dallas confronts Ash. 


    There's no mention of it anywhere and in the Terry Rawlings editing script he writes:


    I've been trying to find out if this scene was filmed or not or just added because it was in the script.

    I cannot sufficiently state how cool this story is.

    Seriously though, good episode, guys. Even if, due to not being versed in it, 75% of the episode was EU gibberish to me. Similar thoughts on how I'd like to see the Prometheus stuff play out, though.

    The recent podcast was good. Took you guys a while to mention AVP Duel (one of favourites) and I'm surprised you've read though Dots. My grandparents gave me a copy for a christmas present and I've never read though it all or been motivated to read it ;D Maybe a later podcast could be about the games. How it fares as a FPS or RTS and so on. Just a thought :)

    Ahahaha "This is Sil, the guy who drove the Strause brothers off of the forum", nice.  8) Haha good podcast though guys.

    Wait both brothers? I thought it was just one? Oh well be great to put on a resume ;D

    Haha, good job guys. I particularly liked the discussion about Deadliest of the Species. What happened SiL? Seems you could hardly get out a proper sentence.  ;)

    I like the idea of bringing in members for discussions.
