Q
I appreciate your disappointment that this elaborate fantasy you concocted where everything with an Alien logo on it was somehow canonical, has been all for naught, but Fox owns the thing and they call the shots.
FOX has been calling the shots for years, and you were singing a very different tune when they were saying other things were canon as well.
Not that I'm complaining, your new EU-inclusive outlook is pretty refreshing and I heartily support it. :)

I'm waiting to see how much of the "old EU" the new stuff actually wipes out. I remember people talking about how the DH Press novels or the 2009 relaunch comics would abandon the "old EU", and then they ended up doing the exact opposite and directly referenced the old EU. Whoops! :P
I wouldn't be surprised if they took the new Star Wars "canon" approach, where old stuff is "not canon" but could be referenced and reactivated as "canon" by new stuff. I'd be pretty okay with that I think.

Okay guys and girls - if we're going to turn this into an EU/canon thread then please start a new one.

Predxeno, please read what others are saying instead of ignoring the issue and frustrating people.

Cvalda, that doesn't give you permission to be a dick. And it happens too frequently from the looks of it. Please enjoy a 7 day sabbatical and come back with a different attitude.

Sil came from PAVP?



Bruh.
Heck yeah. I was one of the staff members for a while, even. A group of us have a Skype group chat going that's been on for the last ... 6 years?

Wow, that escalated  :o

At least, if most people overlook the canon thing a bit, you can still enjoy the book for it´s looks :)

What? No we weren't. Most people were screaming "comics aren't canon!" Did you never read the "Ask Me Anything About ALIENS" thread?

I searched for that thread. And couldn't find it. Then I realised it was probably on the other forum.

This is another of today's many epic fails on my behalf. I should have stayed in bed....

Bringing things back to topic, not many people answered my original question; is anybody planning on buying the $360 collector's edition?  I'm undecided.

There's no chance that I spend that much. Hopefully the regular edition is more reasonably priced, because I love these table-top sort of books.

Yes, there's going to be a retail version but I don't know if the $360 version will have things the retail won't, to be honest.

To my knowledge there are no immediate plans.  But I'd be surprised if that didn't change.
