    Personally, I felt let down. They had some epic posters and other limited edition stuff last year and this year they had almost nothing (mondo wise). No interest or ability to play the vinyl records. Socks? Nah. NECA figures were unimpressive (I don't like the Kenner stuff, no nostalgia factor so not my thing). There were no screenings around me to go see (I've always wanted to see the first 2 films in theater). The audible drama will be cool I got that (really liked the first one, Out of the Shadows).

    I hope they can do something more like a full convention style thing next year, have all the living actors and actresses show up for autographs and pictures, screen all the films, costume contests, etc. THAT would be a true ALIEN DAY, IMO.

    Do you know what. I was really hoping that we would get an announcement of a new Alien graphic novel by Tristan Jones. No idea why I put that in my head but I am sorely disappointed.  Also, not happy we that no new game was announced.

    That's clearly the face of someone that has been repressing their desire for the skull.

    Lol the trivia has some loaded questions such as what company created Ash. They said it was hyperdyne or whatever it's called....obviously I answered Weyland Yutani....I feel like I'm correct

    Looks like Reebok is making more Alien shoes. This looks nice

    I wish those weren't such a pricey collector's item  :-\ ... cuz I wanna wear the shit out of them.
    well, it's not like they are the only pair and have to be displayed behind bullet proof glass. If you want to wear them, rock em! I always had a habit (even as a kid with my basketball shoes) to clean my favorite shoes once I'm done wearing them and put them back in the box to keep me fresh. That reminds me... I need to clean my Giorgio Armani sneakers I wore yesterday :laugh:

    I thought the day made some great reveals.  The extra prologue to 'ALIEN: Covenant' was great - and I didn't have to be a US citizen to benefit from it.  Lots of product reveals and I'm going to order some of them luvverly Super7 blind box ALIENS.  They're definitely heading my way once I get paid.  Beyond that, there wasn't a lot that appealed - just the NECA figure for the new movie.

    Of course, I was disappointed there was no new game revealed.   Too bad that one.  Overall, though, it was pretty cool.  There sure is some weird stuff heading our way.  Mr. Potatohead Alien and Nesting doll Aliens were a bit confounding.  I mean, really?  those things are a thing but 'ALIEN: Isolation 2' is a no show..? 

    It is a bit bewildering sometimes, I'll say that much for sure.

    I think it was better than last year but mostly because of all the Covenant stuff coming out too. Product wise, like last year, only a few I was actually interested in. I brought some of those Fright Rag socks and I'll get the audio drama when I return to civilization and can download it without struggle.

    I'm disappointed we didn't get any new game announcement though.  :'(
    Same here, with halo wars 2 done and dusted this would have been a perfect time for creative assembly to announce alien isolation 2.
     Sadly though I don't think that game will be happening.

    Lots of pictures to upload from the big event. Have to say I was impressed at how the astronaut suits (two different designs present) had actual functional displays on the insides of the helmets.

    The creature designer guy apparently revealed a partial spoiler without realising, during his talk. :) For those tracking our Twitter account, I tried to live-cast videos of all the major stuff, which should all still be on there.

    It all culminated with a screening of 'Prometheus', then the new footage you've all now watched, which segued into completely new footage (about ten/fifteen minutes) from the coming film.

    Have been in wait-and-see mode for AC, but what we viewed convinced me the characters should be on par with those of the original two films, reaction/interaction-wise. Very visceral, but the way the characters responded was what sold it. That frantic atmosphere which made Lambert's demise so memorable in the original film? It was there in spades and really helped.

    Happy Alien Day! Looks like NECA's 2017 Alien Day figure is a Kenner Vasquez tribute.

    I'm actually tempted by this one. Not sure I'd use it but I quite like it.

    I contacted Corporal Hicks, but I'm not sure if he got my mail. If you guy's are interested bottleneck gallery have a limited edition print of the Alien Covenant poster that was shown a few weeks back (the nice one). It will only be available for one night though and possibly for only a few hours ( as is the usual with these timed editions). Check it out.

    I did, thanks! Sorry I'm struggling with internet this week. Here's a link to the website: https://bottleneckgallery.com
